Thanks for your interest Kenny, I don't have your email address so I sent you a private message.

For others who may want to know, we have been up a running on our own only about 4 months so the bridge set is all we have completed. Funds have been donated for the transporter room and construction will start on it when it gets warm enough.

After that we hope to build the rest of the Desily/Stage 9 sets including engineering, sickbay, captain's quarters, briefing room and a corridor.

Anyone who wishes to contact me in private can use the contact page on our website. It comes directly to my email.

Contact Starbase Studios.

Actors and Actresses!

Have you ever wanted to be in a Star Trek film? Now you can. You don't have to be a professional actor, we are all just fans and in it for fun. Don't be afraid to give it a try.

Post something about yourself, such as a bio and some photos, on our "Actors" board and let visiting productions know your available. Be careful not to post personal contact information, use the board's message system. So far EVERYONE who has posted on the board has been offered a part in at least one show.

You do not need to live in the Oklahoma City area to be considered for an acting position but you must be able to keep any commitments to be here for filming days.

The studio must always remain free of charge and there are two very important reasons for it.

1: CBS says so.
2: When the studio does close, greed will be the cause of it.

1: CBS owns ALL the intellectual property rights to everything we do here. Some people try to argue that it's our set and they have nothing to do with it but in reality, it's our wood and our paint but it is THEIR bridge.

It isn't our right to make Star Trek fan films, CBS allows us to do it. They have provided a simple, easy to follow list of guidelines, via Phase 2, that are written to keep both sides happy. Those guidlines clearly state we are not allowed to make money from their franchise.

Simple minded people with dollar signs in their eyes are always coming up with the equivalent of get rich schemes that they don't think CBS could shut down because "technically" it's not breaking the rules. It's seems to be beyond these peoples comprehension that we don't have to be breaking rules in order for CBS to shut us down, all we have to do is get them unhappy with us.

Not following the simple and fair guidelines from CBS would be the stupidest thing we could do.

2: I can't tell you how many people, with minimal involvement in the project, want to get their hands in the little bit of money we do have coming in. Even people involved don't want to spend the money on the things we raised it to do. It comes down to greed, if we don't keep a very good system of bookkeeping and spending we will lose everything.

Because of these same greed motivated people, if we ever did find a way to charge for the facility, it would die instantly. With everyone who thinks they have a reason to have their hand in the pot, the charge to use the facility would be so enormous no one would ever be able to film here. If we even suggested the donation amount that some have been insisting we "ask for", we would be completely unaffordable.

One side note about greedy people. The next person that comes up to me and says "Why don't YOU build another captain's chair so WE can make some money." is losing some teeth.

If there were a third reason to keep if free it is because of the people who come to visit or film. Over the last two months I have been told by countless people that we have fulfilled one of their childhood dreams. That always brings on one of those warm, fuzzy feelings that money can't buy.

In short, charging for use of the studio would completely countermand the purpose for building it and would instantly bring it to an end.


Solid thinking.

A nice video magazine feature about the studio, from our friends at Uncovering Oklahoma.

Re: Starbase Studios. A TOS fan film studio for everyone.

A wonderful 8 page article on Starbase Studios, written by Samuel Annis, was just release by This Land Press. Samuel visited the studio during the filming of Yorktown: A Time to Heal and did an incredible job of not only writing about the studio but about making a film as well. Please give it a read and give Samuel and This Land Press a big thank you.

Re: Starbase Studios. A TOS fan film studio for everyone.

Starbase Studios to produce Starship Grissom. A Star Trek Educational Series.

Starship Grissom, the only show actually produced by Starbase Studios, is to our knowledge, the first Star Trek themed educational show. The story follows Cadet Ryley Strong who wins an award and is posted to the Grissom for a mission to colonize a remote planet. The lessons of colonizing our TOS planet will be drawn from the plans to colonize Kepler 186f, the planet recently discovered by NASA which may be inhabitable.

The scripts and accompanying lesson plans are written by a group of local teachers and cover many subjects from science and technology to biology and even art and literature. The lessons meet both Common Core and STEM standards and can be freely downloaded by any teachers in the U.S. for use as part of their classroom curriculum.

We hope to release the first episode as close as possible to the beginning of the school year.

For more information see the Starship Grissom Facebook page.

Will the lessons be exclusively available to teachers, or will interested parents be able to download them as well?

Re: Starbase Studios. A TOS fan film studio for everyone.

Would be great if there were a good few more crew quarters built so you could do a starship and crew experience week, the people have to basically live and work like their on a starship, they choose the adventure and who is captain and other roles, everything is recorded, the ultimate role play and a great experience

If anyone wants them to have more sets, I encourage you to donate money, materials, time, and energy to them to enable this goal.
