It's a Wrap for "Miscommunication!"
On Saturday, February 11th 2011, filming took place on location in Leesburg, Georgia, which doubled for the surface of planet Gaius XI. This episode starred Stephanie Burke as Lieutenant Sharon Mtume and new cast member Richard Thornton as Lieutenant Darrell Frazier, and featured newcomers Hannah Ruiz as Lieutenant Doreen Spampinato and Thomas Walker as Ensign Thuul, an Andorian. Bill Walker, who will directing, editing and producing this episode, managed to film the five page script in four hours. Helping the matter was that three of the performers were local drama students/actors.
Although the chilly temperature made for an uncomfortable shoot at first, it soon warmed up and shooting went extremely well. This was the first location shoot for Project: Potemkin. Even with limited power and facilities, Bill Walker was well prepared for the conditions. Hosting the event were Karen Johnson and Linda Marcusky, with chicken wings from The Crowbar in Albany, Georgia. Randy Landers served as Assistant Director, while Thomas Walker, Bill's son, also helped with the reflector used for lighting.
This vignette, written by Davis Eversole, is a serious vignette, steeped in the spirit of Star Trek and science fiction. We also are introduced to our new security officer, Lieutenant Darrell Frazier, who is both young and new to the Potemkin
. We also meet Science Officers Doreen Spampinato and Thuul who find themselves in the midst of a crisis!
