Starship FARRAGUT: The CROSSING

Looks like release date is approaching. The Farragut group has just released their first trailer for this Mirror Universe-related adventure.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCyjHa5zYmw

Lieutenant Prescott is back, script by Paul Sieber and actor\director Mark Hildebrand repeats as Capt. Wilcox of the USS Potemkin.

Looking forward to it!

Well how about that! Is it possible for a security officer, even a head of security to move up in rank that high?

Another question I have for whoever, in Farragut's short film ''Just Passing through'', it mentions Wilcox was the Potemkin's captain for a number of years, and unless the one we saw in the Crossing is the Mirror universe Wilcox, it might be safe to assume that Wilcox was the captain of the Potemkin during the Ultimate Computer episode?

(this is me being nerdy as heck! )

Here's a question for Greg and any other Producer who might want to answer: is there a gentleman's agreement between the various productions to not contradict certain additions made to the Star Trek ''universe''? For example, Phase 2 established onscreen that the USS Eagle was lost in space but manned by an Andorian, and the Exeter people have the USS Kongo and all hands obliterated in TTI.

What I'm getting at is, if a production wishes to feature another starship for whatever role within their episode, does everyone make a point not to use a ship that was already shown on another series? such as having Phase 2 filming a story with the tellarite captain of the Excalibur, or having Captain Bishop of the Valiant destroying the Farragut and its renegade Captain, Luigi Nguyen Gregorivich...

I know it's been relatively easy in the last decade to avoid stepping on each other's toes, but with more and more productions being started every year or so, eventually somebody might slip up...

Has Paul Seiber ever written anything he didn't also cast himself in?

That would be true of a lot of fanfilm makers. Why single out Paul?

I know of no such "gentleman's agreement." Mostly, I think that if we are exploring strange new worlds and going where no man has gone before, we aren't too likely to bump heads with stuff that other productions have already established. If we are seeing stuff that is familiar (either from TOS or from fan productions based on TOS), then I guess it's not really all that strange or new or going where no man has gone before.

But I bet the time will come when somebody will put in some small data point that contradicts some other fan production. If and when it happens, it will probably be just some good natured ribbing.

"If you don't clean up your act, Ensign, I'll transfer you off the Enterprise to the worst ship in the fleet!"

"No, please, Captain Kirk! Anything but transferring me to the Farragut or the Exeter! Just kill me instead!"

Yeah--I could see it.

Writers are not generally in charge of casting.

Also, regarding Prescott's rank, when last we saw him in Star Trek Phase II's "Kitumba," he was a Lieutenant Commander. He has been a Lieutenant Commander since his first appearance in Starship Farragut's 2007 "For Want of a Nail." I think he's been that rank for several years now; maybe it's time he become a full Commander.

Re: Starship FARRAGUT: The CROSSING

Coming so close on the heels of "Fairest Of Them All" it seems likely that the availability of mirror universe outfits may have inspired this episode. Either that or it's a big coincidence.

In fact, "The Price of Anything" seems to be Paul Sieber's only writing credit so far. So, the question might better be: has Paul Sieber ever written anything that he has also appeared in? The answer would seem to be "no."

However, Paul Sieber did write he screenplay for Farragut's first full-length episode, The CAPTAINCY, which introduced his character (sorry Greg, but it isn't mentioned on his IMDB for some reason)

Hm. Yes, you're right. Thank you.

Odd.

So Paul has been in 50% of the stuff he writes.

No idea. Since he has no difficulty getting cast regularly in quite a number of independent movies - most of them non-Trek and I suspect most of them more in the horror or suspense vein than skiffy stuff - it's a silly question anyway.

I cast him as the lead in my movie and couldn't be happier.
