Axanar 2: Not Just Another Battle Story / by Trek fm

The Axanar Story and Script with David Gerrold and Christian Gossett.

Set during the Four Years War between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, Axanar has its share of battles. But there's far more to the story than ship-to-ship combat, action, and explosions. At the heart of any good war story is the effect it has on those involved. War stories are character tales, and as famed Star Trek writer David Gerrold points out, this is what attracted him to Alec Peter's script. In this episode of the official Star Trek: Axanar podcast we're joined by David as well as director Christian Gossett to talk about conflict in Star Trek, Klingons, and why Axanar goes far beyond the average battle story.
