THE ROMULAN WAR
THE ROMULAN WAR is a Star Trek fan film production which documents the plight of humanity as it faces extinction at the hands of the Romulan Empire in the 22nd century. If you like Star Trek, war movies, or the History Channel, be part of our campaign to complete production on THE ROMULAN WAR!
Our documentary-style fan film focuses on this historic event that led to the creation of the United Federation of Planets…the war between Earth and the Romulan Empire! Captain’s logs, eyewitness video, journal entries, and period photographs combine with “found footage” of the war’s key conflicts to realistically depict a world where mankind’s very survival is at stake.
THE ROMULAN WAR vividly embraces the entire sweep of the 22nd century’s most devastating war, covering the battles in space, on alien worlds, and on the home fronts of both Earth and Romulus. These are the heroic adventures of captain and cadet alike that ultimately leads to the formation of the Federation!

LUKAS KENDALL is looking to direct and produce a sci-fi short film, SKY FIGHTER, a proof-of-concept for a feature film (both scripts are written). He already has offers to package the Sky Fighter feature script with a director and actors to get it made—but Lukas wrote it with the intention to direct it himself. So he need to make a short film version of it to prove heI can direct! ROBERT MEYER BURNETT (who edited Prelude to Axanar) will be editing the SKY FIGHTER short film.
The project is inspired by space warfare works like Battlestar Galactica/Robotech along with Ghost in the Shell/Black Mirror cyber-technology. Two fighter pilots, one of them with no memory, fight for their lives inside a fighter-bomber spacecraft during a future space war…but who is good and who is bad?
A great short is like blowing up a balloon—until it pops. That’s what this is. You hit the ground running, create a world where two characters are in intense conflict, the action builds to a climax with a cool reveal—and it’s over. It’s lean, mean and stylish. Thematically, it’s about anti-militarism and anti-conformity, two things that are very important to Lukas Kendall.
If you want, don’t wait till the short is made—read the script here.

Trek vs. Trek
Trek vs. Trek is a fan film to bring joy and smiles to people who have enjoyed fifty years of Star Trek. Like our previous Star Trek comedy, Star Trek vs. Batman, our only goal is to bring laughter and smiles to people; an escape from the daily deluge of toxicity and darkness in the world around us. This will be a great way to share some laughs with the family or with other Trek fans around the world! Laughter is truly the best medicine!
The funds will be used to make costumes, rent equipment, insurance, and construction materials.

PACIFIC 201 (online “in demand” Indiegogo campaign)
Pacific 201 tackles an unseen era of Star Trek history, telling our idea of how Earth reestablishes itself as a positive interstellar influence after the devastating Romulan War. Forty years have passed since the cease-fire was signed, establishing the Romulan Neutral Zone, and ending the war. But the problems are far from over, as mistrust and a general wariness of the unknown have plagued humanity for years. That era is coming to a close as the children of those who fought in the war are tired of hiding from the galaxy. The time has come for Earth to regain its confidence and make a name for itself in the stars. Those hopes are embodied in the launching of Earth’s newest flagship: the Starship Pacific, which will embark on a bold mission towards a mysterious and uncharted region of space.
We’ve raised many of the funds required to go forward with production, but as much of our budget requires our team to spend a lot out-of-pocket, continued contributions will only serve to make Pacific 201 even better!
