Tommy Kraft has labored for four long years as the main creative force behind the film Star Trek Horizon. Now that the movie is out, Tommy has a lot to say about the rigors of being a one-man-band filmmaker. In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, he joins Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters to talk about the experience, what he learned from making his fan film, and what he might like to do next.

But first, Rob and Alec are joined by Mike Bawden to update you on the CBS/Paramount lawsuit.
