Star Trek: Phase II.
As Star Trek fans in 2014, we have many wonderful independent series to enjoy. But it wasn't always that way. Back in April 2003, Jack Marshall and James Cawley created Star Trek New Voyages and were the first to bring Kirk, Spock, and the missions of the Enterprise 1701 back to the screen. In February 2008, they redubbed the series Star Trek: Phase II, the title of the planned but never produced television series from the late 1970s.
Since its inception as New Voyages in 2003, Phase II has produced nine episodes—"Come What May," "In Harm's Way," "To Serve All My Days," "World Enough and Time," "Blood and Fire" (a two-parter), "Enemy: Starfleet," "The Child," and "Kitumba"—along with three vignettes—"Center Seat," "No-Win Scenario," and "Going Boldly." Some familiar faces have also appeared in guest roles in these episodes, including Walter Koenig, George Takei, Barbara Luna, and David Gerrold.
But the best is yet to come.
In this episode of Continuing Mission we're joined today by Brian Gross, who plays Kirk, Brandon Stacy, who plays Spock, writer Rick Chambers, 1st AD Dennis Hotson, Gaffer and Line Producer Robert Mauro, and Production Assistance at resident Trekspert Jaime Sanchez to learn about cast and crew changes, the new 13,000-square-foot facility and new sets, the next three episodes, and more.
