Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Very excited that you'll be tipping your hat to the FASA material. I remember being fascinated by their Four Years War manual, and was always curious about Garth's exploits at Axanar. Really looking forward to this.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

I had to make some decisions about how much to include from FASA. I didn't like "Xenophon" as a name for Garth's ship. The Marklin Class was just a destroyer and I think Garth would have had a true ship of the line. So I changed what FASA came up with, but I give it a nod. Thus the war with the Klingons which has lasted four years.

Ultimately I am not following FASA, but take inspiration from it. Just as FASA took inspiration from "The Final Reflection" by John Ford. Let's face it, that book had a big impact on many of us.

There is a new ebook fan fiction called "The Four Years War" by Stephen Fender. You can find it here.



He does an admirable job taking FASA and putting it in novel form. But Garth's role is minimal, and this was my major problem with the storyline from FASA.

Garth was the role model for Kirk and a whole generation of Starfleet Captains. And while Canon doesn't have The Four Years War in it, we know that Axanar was a major victory that somehow saved the Federation.

So in "Axanar" Garth is the Patton of his day. He is THE guy Stafleet goes to when they plan the major engagement of the war. And that is because he has been kicking ass for four years. He is promoted to Fleet Captain and given command for a battle the Federation hopes will end the war.

Yes, 20 years before TOS. But I wouldn't call it just "another" film. :-)

It seems the Enterprise launched in 2245, and that is the year we have set "Axanar", as you will see the Enterprise in spacedock being built and Robert April is a major character, basically Garth's mentor.

I think that's a perfectly reasonable approach.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Well, here are Sean's concept sketches for the costumes so far.

The Male Tunic is two pieces, a black mock turtleneck undershirt, and a tunic that goes over it.

The Female is a one piece jumpsuit over which goes a tunic.

Here is the Schematics that Tobias Ritcher had to work from. Originally they were separate files, but I decided to combine them into one for this image.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Since there are going to be two fleets fighting at The Battle of Axanar, we are going to need multiple ship classes for each race. For Starfleet, we will be using the Kelvin class, and will be creating 3-5 more ship classes. Same for Klingons.

So we are thinking of running a contest for 3D modelers to design a ship we would use. I ran it by Tobias and he likes the idea. Thought I would run it by you all and see what you guys think.
