Re: "Yorktown: A Time to Heal" - Official thread for the Sulu fan film

As Yorktown: A Time to Heal is still in production, we can't create an IMDb page for the film at this time. However, I was able to create a page for their first Star Trek fan film: Yorktown: In Temporary Command.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2111493/

The film was made during their senior year in high school, and was shot on Super 8 film. Stan Woo and Da Han won the Sweepstakes Award for best science fiction film at the 1984 Hollywood Teenage Film & Video Festival, with Woo accepting the award on their behalf from actor Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters).

Yorktown: A Time to Heal was filmed 5 years later. Originally, the film was planned as a follow-up to their first film (which is why the title Yorktown II sometimes appears online). Once George Takei joined the project, the continuity of the high school film was abandoned.

Although the film was finished, there are no plans to put "In Temporary Command" online at this time, as the filmmakers don't want the two films to be confused with each other. However, there is a chance that the high school film may be posted for fun once "A Time to Heal" is finished.

The new (CGI) Klingon K-Fighter model is nearly done. Roland is going over the final design with Andrew Probert. Should have some new FX posted very soon. Stay tuned!

Ships that will appear in the film are:

USS Yorktown NCC-1704 (TOS style)
USS Yorktown NCC-1704 (refit model)
Klingon K-Fighter
Klingon Battle Cruiser (TMP style)
S.H.A.R.K. vessel (the "Nagear" - a new design by Andrew Probert, similar to the Vulcan shuttle design from TMP).

Wow, thanks for that. Is the original film, Yorktown: In Temporary Command available for viewing anywhere?

It isn't available yet. The film was finished and screened for an audience back in 1984. The film isn't the same quality of "A Time To Heal", as it was filmed during their senior year of high school. It is a student film.

The film still needs to be transferred from Super-8 to digital so it can be put online. Chances are, it will be posted after "A Time To Heal" is made available online, although that could change. Personally, I think it would be fun to see the high school film first!

Ah, I was hoping to know where/when they were shooting as I'd have volunteered to help.

Just read the thread, joined the Facebook page, watched the trailer and original footage. All I can say is WOW! WHat a fantastic project and a true piece of history. I love it and can't wait to see it when you are done.

Can you say a bit more about the transfer from S8? I am fascinated.

Oh yeah, and James Shigeta! DAMN!!!!!
