The team behind the Star Trek: New Voyages fan films announced they will be co-producing a feature-length miniseries starring close to a dozen actors from the official Star Trek series.
Entitled Star Trek: Of Gods And Men, the series started shooting on the 12th of July under the direction of Tim Russ (Tuvok). Russ will also be appearing in the film as a young Tuvok, joining a whole range of established Trek actors such as Nichell Nicholes (Uhura), Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov). The story of the film will be set during the Enterprise-B era, as also featured in Star Trek: Generations.
In addition to the above actors, the film will feature Garrett Wang (Harry Kim) and other stars from various Star Trek series, but did promise that in addition to the above actors, the miniseries will feature some “surprise guests.”
The executive producer of Of Gods And Men isSky Douglas Conway, who also produced the recent Trek-related projects Lady Magdalene’s and Roddenberry on Patrol. Conway wrote the script for the film together with DS9 alumni Jack Trevino . Finally, some of the behind-the-scenes crew will be made up of people who used to work on the Star Trek series, such as director of photography Doug Knapp.
