Star Trek Futures

Greetings to everyone. I'll keep this post short and simple. We would like to introduce our film project Star Trek Futures to the STBBS.

Star Trek Futures (STF) is a prospective live action film project aimed at delivering highly stylized Futurist visuals as well as a compelling, relatable, and emotional story. The look of Star Trek Futures is heavily inspired by a nostalgic view of mid-to-late-20th century sci-fi. Drawing from these influences, STF will rely on clever cinematography and musical interplay to create a sense of wonder and imagination set in the Star Trek universe. Using these techniques, we will tell our story in an impactful, artistic way while using our budget intelligently. As opposed to previous Star Trek media, there will be an overarching serialized storyline instead of one-off episodes. The goal is to produce a five episode mini-series with each episode being roughly an hour in length that would be distributed via the Internet.

"Everything in its right place."
Star Trek Futures is set in an alternate timeline of the late 2300s and centers on a young commander, Jack Crusher, his family, and the crew of the Enterprise-C. In this new timeline, a large group of Vulcans who survived the destruction of their home planet has finally settled on A'ren, a planet located within a corner of the Beta Quadrant embroiled in conflict. A civil war between the native Cae and their subservient race the Ra'zae is coming to a head. The Union, which had ruled over the small star system for nearly 400 years, has been ousted and is in shambles. Meanwhile, a new fledgling government is in desperate talks with the Federation for support in their struggle against the Ra'zae. For the last few years, the Ra’zae have deployed a devastating weapon that is systematically destroying subspace. This weapon makes traveling faster than light inside the Cesera system extremely hazardous and almost impossible. The Cae also control a vital energy production and distribution system that is now under a massive blockade created by the Ra'zae. The threat of its destruction would irreparably change the balance of power in the entire sector. The Enterprise and her crew are sent to serve as a diplomatic envoy to the Federation, but unfortunately, becomes caught in the middle of the brutal Cae civil war.

I've added this thread to your dedicated paragraph at Star Trek Reviewed. Cool concept art. Somewhat reminds me of what Warner is doing with some DC characters on TV.

Hi everyone. Here are our bridge crew communicators. These will be worn by everyone on the bridge (minus the captain) to speak with other areas of the ship. Hope you like them!

Re: Star Trek Futures

Artwork Wednesday over at Star Trek Futures. Introducing Tare Ra'tal, Ra'zae Ambassador. He has seemingly been assimilated by the Cae culture but has an extremely private life outside of his dignitary functions. However, he has the reputation for being overly opulent and overbearingly charming. His go to phrase is, "Resa ta, un'berar verice, brenin ra'um." which roughly translates to, " Through the ash and stone, may the light find you."

We wanted to create something that fit very well into the "Uncanny Valley." and I think we achieved that look perfectly. The look of the Ra'zae are a combination of the Borg and the Engineers as seen in Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Both of which still give me the willies. We hope you like it!

Dan

Re: Star Trek Futures

The mock-ups are all very cool. What's your production timeline? I imagine you're a couple years away from capturing any frames and that this represents the nascent stages of development?

Thanks! We are going to shoot a 10-15min short film at the end of this year to get people really excited about the look and feel of STF. From there we'll figure out a new timeline for primary production of the miniseries. We've only been going since about November of last year so yes, we are in pretty early stages. Making progress though.
