|Author(s):|| Alec Peters|
Star Trek: Axanar is a fan film currently in pre-production, starring Tony Todd, Richard Hatch, Gary Graham, J.G Hertzler, Michael Hogan, Kate Vernon, and Alec Peters. It is written by Alec Peters and Christian Gosset, produced by Alec Peters, and directed by Christian Gossett.
The film is set to go into production in October 2015, with a tentative release in the spring or summer of 2016.
The film takes place 21 years before the TOS episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before". It tells the story of Garth and the crew the USS Ares during the fourth year of the Four Years War; the war with the Klingon Empire that nearly tore the Federation apart. Garth's victory at Axanar solidified the Federation and allowed it to become the entity we know in Kirk's time. The stardate system is the same one in the films set in the alternate reality.
It is preceded by the history documentary-style prequel Prelude to Axanar.
