The MISSION BOARD!

2015 is a banner year for Trek-related fan productions, but especially for TOS-era productions. A decade ago one was lucky if two or even three productions would get released in a given year (my impression, only), but we have had at least 2 hit the internet since december 1st, and I can point to at least a dozen in various stages of production.

While Star Trek continues is chugging along quite nicely, we are kept aware of all developments handily by some of the members here...

But there are other webseries, shorts and full-length that are in the midst of production or that have begun a kickstarter campaign that get little to no fanfare here, and often no updates from the higher-ups.

Hopefully this thread will catch on and worthy productions on the fringe can get a small boost of visibility here.

I'm going to try to keep to the facts as much as possible, if I goof on any detail by all means correct me.

I guess I don't understand why there are two closed stickied threads that haven't been updated since 2009 which presumably do the same thing? Seems sort of redundant. Is there any way to merge those and update so we have a single stickied updatable thread?

Re: The MISSION BOARD!

STAR TREK: AMBUSH

British-based production company and creators. A successful Kickstarter campaign closed in may 2014. Currently set-building, readying for second wave of shooting at the end of 03-2015 (All exterior lensing completed) http://youtu.be/sQBn_dq2Y28

No release date yet mentioned.

Synopsis by the creators:
"Ambush" will introduce you to a new ship and crew that exist in the Star Trek Universe, The USS Ambush. Set just after the events portrayed in "Balance of Terror", the original series episode. By focusing on a single away mission to rescue a captured Commander, "Ambush" will shed some light on how the Federation ultimately dealt with the Romulans, after the initial incident involving Kirk and The Enterprise.

YORKTOWN: A TIME TO HEAL

Canadian-American production group. A successful Indigogo campaign closed in November 2013, currently seeking funding for some post-production needs. All shooting seemingly completed. https://vimeo.com/65944786

No release date yet mentioned.

Plot synopsis: Long-delayed production featuring mid-1980s George Takei-starring footage to be merged with 2014 characters for the last battle of the USS Yorktown, only to launch the refit Yorktown (akin to TMP Enterprise?) off to finish the adventure.

Usually I don't mind reusing\reviving an existing thread, but in this instance why revive an old thread that is likely filled with deadend\abandoned projects, and perhaps only a handful of succesful ones?

So I judged it more prudent to start fresh and to hopefully focus on productions that might have sets built \booked, or at least footage shot. Going through the existing threads I read about projects that had an elaborate website bursting with character bios, but zilch on the actual practical filmmaking results.

I don't seek to have this thread stickied, i'm doing it for fun and want to give a deserved boost to fellow filmmakers. And frankly speaking the others should get un-stickied due to inactivity.

Sounds good, and I agree that those outdated threads should be allowed to sink like the Titanic.

There are two fundraisers ongoing for two other planned TOS era shows, Star Trek: Valiant and Star Trek Anthology. Both fundraisers are linked from my Headline at Star Trek Reviewed, but not at the top of the page.
