A fan of Star Trek since it first aired in September of 1966, Alec Peters has done an amazing feat by changing the way society sees an independent film production. Crowdfunding through Kick Starter and other sites have resulted in approximately $1.15 million raised to produce his film, Axanar. However, a law suit by CBS in December of 2015 put this production to a halt.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Alec Peters, the star, writer, and producer of Axanar, to discuss the current situation of his film, our favorite episodes of each Star Trek series, the Cardassians, and Alec's five favorite tracks from the Star Trek franchise. Brandon-Shea also reads several pieces of listener feedback.
