Axanar 27: This Is the Star Trek for Me / by Trek fm

Forwarding the Axanar Movement.

The excitement surrounding Axanar is incredible. The passion that fans are pouring into the project has given the story of Garth and The Four Years War a life of its own. In fact, this energy has created a movement; and in a time devoid of new Star Trek on television, the Ares is leading the way into a bold new future. In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Publisher Christopher Jones and Executive Producer Norman C. Lao to discuss how and why this movement has taken shape—and where it is headed.

In our news segment, Rob and Alec recount their weekend on location for the shooting of the first scene from Axanar, and reveal some of the exciting new perks coming to the next Kickstarter.
