Axanar 33: Gabbing with Gary Gra’HAM by Trek fm

Gary Graham Talks Axanar and Soval.

Running Time: 1 hour 31 minutes 35 seconds


Axanar creates connections to the Star Trek that we know and love, and does so in two directions. It bridges the gap between Enterprise and The Original Series, and does so through story, technology, and people. One familiar face is Ambassador Soval … and not just the character, but the man who brought him to life on Enterprise.

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by that man, Gary Graham, to discuss how he became involved in Axanar, how he got the role of Soval on Enterprise, and how crowdfunding is changing Hollywood. Gary also tells stories of how he first got into acting, what it was like to be a young actor in the 1980s, and even tells you the “correct” way to pronounce his last name.

In news, Rob and Alec are joined by the Goddess of Fulfillment, Diana Kingsbury, for an update on those Axanar perks and recent developments in the production process, and a recap of their visit to Salt Lake City Comic Con.

Axanar 32: What Makes a Great Star Trek Story? by Trek fm

Writing Axanar with Bill Hunt.

Axanar takes place during war time. Does that mean it isn’t a Star Trek story? Some fans believe that war is incompatible with the Star Trek vision; but a story set against conflict doesn’t have to be all about the fight.

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Axanar co-writer Bill Hunt to discuss what makes a great tale, why characters are at the heart of any good script, and how they are opening up the story. They also dig into the writing process, and do something else fans love to do: debate canon.

Axanar 19: You Have to Make Your Day by Trek fm

Making Independent Films with Charles de Lauzirika.

Creating any film is an enormous undertaking, but when you go the independent route there are unique challenges the big productions don’t necessarily face. Yet some of the most talented and creative minds in storytelling have chosen to work with small teams and small budgets—and the results are incredible. But how is it done without the resources of a large Hollywood studio?

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Charles de Lauzirika, creator and director of Crave and producer of DVD/Blu-ray extras for Alien, Blade Runner, and Twin Peaks, to learn about his process for independent filmmaking. Charles, Rob, and Alec share their experiences working on projects including Crave, Prelude to Axanar, and Free Enterprise.
