    Why isn't the original design for the Yorktown being used.The original design that was going to be used had the warp engines below the saucer.
    I do not remember who originally designed it, but I thought it was more unique and interesting to look at.

    Two versions of the USS Yorktown appear in this film. At the beginning of the film, it appears as a Constitution Class starship (same design as the 60s USS Enterprise). During the film, it is given a "refit" after it is damaged in an attack. The refitted ship (designed by Andrew Probert) has the warp engines below the saucer. If you watch the teaser trailer on Youtube and Vimeo, you will see both versions of the ship appear in the trailer: https://vimeo.com/43588987

    We have now started adding FX to the original super 8 film. Will have some before and after pics to show over the next few weeks.

    In terms of filming the missing Bridge scenes, I am still waiting on costumes from Kathy Pillsbury, who made the costumes in the 80s for the film. Hopefully she will have these done soon. I have a group of actors from Austin, Texas who will be filming those scenes for us, and the plan is to use the awesome Ajax/Exeter bridge set for those scenes.

    Ashley Lotecki, who plays the lovely Lt. Commander Jessica Graham in "Yorktown: A Time to Heal", is excited to announce that her new Star Trek inspired Tricorder purse design, including a full pattern, tutorial, and personal "log", have been published in "The Star Trek Craft Book: Make It So!" You can see her awesome Tricorder design on the cover of the book :)

    The book was released yesterday and is widely available (including Amazon and Chapters/Indigo) if you want to check it out for yourself! You can also see more of her work at her personal website, www.thesmashworks.com

    Ah, very cool! I'm friends wit Mary Czerwinski who also had a hand in that project (The Craft Book, I think). Always nice when fan endeavors connect and crossover!

    Look good, this will be great to watch when you release it. Are you going to do a "Behind the scean" video to tell the story about putting this together???

    Excellent. I love the dirt and grain added to the space footage.

    I love that too. In a way it makes it look more professional and stylized than other fan films. Reminds me of Tarantino films. Retro looking not old.

    I had forgotten about this being completed. I am glad I discovered this thread again. I just joined the Facebook group. I am a huge Superman fan so I bought the issue of Starlog sometime in the 90s because Superman IV was on the cover. I been fascinated about Yorktown since than. At the time fan films where an idea I had never heard of.

    Yes - the age of the footage adds character, even though you want the best possible quality.

    The fact also that this is the lost adventure of George Takei as Lt Cmdr Sulu really makes this unique, plus you have some great people working behind the scenes.

    This also one of the most earliest known efforts to make a fan film, so thank you for reviving it.
