SQUADRON (Indiegogo Campaign)

SQUADRON is a fan film set in the universe of Star Trek‘s 24th century. Even here in the Czech Republic we fans have dreamed of serving in Starfleet. We made this dream a reality by building a starship bridge along with a captain’s ready room and filming our own exciting story.

When completed, Squadron will be released on-line in two parts via YouTube to be seen for free by all fans. And YES the movie will have english subtitles and if we reach our goal, there will be also an english voice over done by native speakers.

At the height of the Dominion War, a Starfleet captain is unexpectedly promoted to rear admiral and given the command of four Norway-class starships. This rear admiral and his squadron are sent to patrol a remote sector to deal with a possible Dominion incursion. Of course, the Dominion forces are exactly what our heroes encounter. And where you find the Dominion, you find trouble.

AXANAR (Private Funding Campaign)

Help make Axanar a reality!  After a massive lawsuit where CBS and Paramount tried to kill the Star Trek that fans have been asking for, and in which we won the right to make 30 minutes more of Axanar, the team moved the studio across the country, finished the amazing bridge set, and are now poised to make Episodes IV and V of The Four Years War, what we collectively call Axanar.

But we can only do it with your help!  We will raise money for each of five shoots individually, then show you what we have done.  And all along, live-stream and report everything we are doing through the Axanar YouTube channel, the Axanar website, the Axanar Facebook page, the Axanar Twitter and the Axanar email newsletter, which you can sign up for here.

DREADNOUGHT DOMINION (GoFundMe Campaign)

Dreadnought Dominion needs your help to continue telling our stories.   Our first production appeared on YouTube in 2015.  Four years later, we have produced a total of EIGHT productions, and we have more to offer.

All of our productions have been self-funded.  We had a GoFundMe campaign for several months trying to get some funds to pay for the CGI for our latest production “Redemption at Red Medusa.” We had a few very generous contributors who we DEFINITELY appreciate the donations, but we only raised $500! The cost of our last production exceeded $1000 for the CGI alone.

We definitely  need your help to produce our next full length production.  Please review our EIGHT offerings and if you see something that you like, contribute and allow us to continue! THANK YOU!

ARES STUDIOS (ongoing Patreon Campaign)

Ares Studios is the first fan owned film studio.  Founded by Alec Peters, the creator of the ground breaking Star Trek fan film Prelude to Axanar, Ares Studios produces video content for fans of Star Trek and Sci-Fi, including weekly YouTube shows.

The physical studio, located near Atlanta, Georgia – and home to the amazing USS Ares bridge set – is open to all Sci-Fi and genre fans to utilize in their fan films. Ares Studios has also partnered with Gwinnett County High Schools in support of their Academy Program, allowing video production students to work in the studio and film on our sets.

The most important goal for Ares Studios: with a rent of $3,600 a month and utilities and insurance about another $400, $4,000 will cover all monthly expenses to keep the studio open for all to use!

THE ROMULAN WAR (online “in demand” Indiegogo campaign)

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!

PACIFIC 201 (online “in demand” Indiegogo campaign)

pacific-201

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!
