Behind The Scenes With 'Star Trek: Intrepid'

Far from the glitter of Los Angeles, a group of devoted fans create their own Star Trek from the lofty heights of an attic apartment in Scotland.

As reported by News.scotsman.com, making The Stone Unturned, the next film being made by Intrepid Productions, means having one's apartment covered with fabric and other Star Trek items, hoping that the birds singing outside will not be too loud while the scene is being shot, and trying to avoid setting the living room carpet on fire.

This production of Star Trek is being made in Dundee, Scotland where seven people comprise the core of the fan film effort. Steve Hammond, a 39-year-old computer programmer is the director. Nick Cook, a 38-year old nurse is the producer and an actor in the film. His wife Lucita Faria is an actress in the new film. It is in their apartment that the new film is being created. Cook and Faria met at a local Star Trek club in Dundee, which has since folded. They were married several years ago in Las Vegas.

"Most people who make fan films do it because they want to be in Star Trek," says Cook. "They want to put on the costumes, they want to run around, they want to shoot phasers, and they want to make out with green Orion slave girls. Quite frankly, that's why I'm doing it."

Intrepid Productions has created one film prior to this, Heavy Lies the Crown, which has been downloaded by thirty thousand people from the Starship Intrepid website which can be found here. Heavy Lies the Crown took four and a half years to make and is forty-seven minutes long.

Making a fan film can be pricey. Cook estimates that he has spent more than $10,000 on Intrepid in the last few years. He does save costs by making the costumes himself. "I'm constantly knee-deep in bits of fabric," he says, which can drive him a bit crazy sometimes. "But not as crazy as it drives my wife," he says.

The Stone Unturned is due to be released in 2009.

For the record, Nick Cook is married to Lucy Faria, not Steve Hammond.

Yeah, they also falsely stated Lucy and I married in Vegas, despite being told that wasn't the case. Ah well, such is life.
