    I recently came across archived copies of Cinemagic, (https://www.scribd.com/collections/4306028/CineMagic)- This was a Starlog publication on zero budget movie making fx. In recently reading them again I came across this blurb in their forum-about a Star Trek fan film set in the TMP era.

    My question is has anyone ever seen this fan film?


    I figure after 30 + years Mr. Anderson has moved from his listed address :D

    This was printed in 1982 and made in 81... so I would say no

    They look like they're wearing uniforms from Star Trek: the Motion Picture in that shot, so 81-82 sounds about right...

    A quick perusal of IMDB reveals a few of the listed names are still producing films.

    Tully Buckner for example, composed music for the upcoming film Arc.

    There's only one Alan Barth and one Georgia Barnes listed in IMDB as well. Might be worth reaching out to one of these people to see if they know how to find Steve Anderson?

    Care to tell us which issue and page rather than forcing us to hunt through the issues to find it?

    I could of said issue 16 page 11, but, I felt showing the actual blurb from the page would of been more direct and even easier for the viewers ;)

    @YGAGG-

    I just think it was great that you bothered to find it and scan/post it. To find the creators, we don't need much more information than you provided. Ugh. Why do some trekkies consistently need to complain/be negative about the smallest things? Also, he (Maurice) could have courteously asked for more info, rather than criticizing you for not initially posting it.

    Grace and courtesy are each free.

    None of us seem to have known anything about this before now, so a simple "thanks for posting" is appropriate. So, thanks for posting. If you find any more info, please share.

    Personally, I have a strange attraction for Phase II/TMP material of any kind- Always interested in the "what might have been".

    Thanks for posting.

    That said, I don't think it's fair to mischaracterize Maurice's post that way, CM1701. His query a lot more nicely put than someone like me might have phrased it.

    I think it's great that YJAGG shared the blurb itself, but I completely understand the desire to seek out the issue and read the entire thing for oneself as well. Never mind proper attribution, it would have just been nice to have the information up front.

    Just my two cents.

    Spoke with one of the actors in it Tully, who was an extra in this when he was 16, he never saw the finished film and did not keep in touch with anyone from the production.

    So who knows maybe a VHS copy is still sitting on in box in someone's basement.

    Seriously, it was an honest question. Why NOT just point people to an archive of issues rather than just saying "In issue #__ this blurb appeared"?

    Hi all! I came here to post about this fan film, as I met Steve Anderson this weekend, talked with him for a few hours, and then googled to learn more about the fan film and came across this thread.

    A few pieces of information that might be of great interest to you all:

    -Steve's a boat nomad type these days, but he still has the full finished tapes of the film, and he's currently investigating ways to digitize it and put it up on YouTube for everyone to see.

    -Steve met and befriended George Takei, who's actually *in* the movie -- he plays Sulu for a cameo! And Takei came up with Sulu's lines! Apparently there was a lot of Sulu character development material for Wrath of Khan that got cut in editing, and Takei liked the idea of using some of that in the fan production. (one of the biggest take-aways from hanging out with Steve and hearing all his stories is that George Takei sounds like just about the nicest human being on earth)

    -Steve's story is actually remarkable beyond anything I've heard before. Personal tales of encounters with Takei, Roddenberry, Shatner, etcetera. Touring the Wrath of Khan set with Takei! The phrase you see in that magazine, "Based on Gene Roddenberry's View of Life in the 23rd Century," was Roddenberry's personal suggestion to Anderson for how they should describe the fan film to avoid being sued. They got Roddenberry to look at the script and give them feedback!

    -Steve's replica Star Trek uniform creations were so good that Paramount heard about them through the grapevine, and actually had him produce replicas of the Wrath of Khan uniforms for use in publicity events and the like.

    -Steve actually has a floating museum of his Star Trek memorabilia that's a sight to behold. He floated it out to the just-concluded Ephemerisle floating festival, which is how I encountered him. We ended up on his boat at random, but noticed he had an impressive Star Trek tattoo merging the insignia of each era of Trek, and got to talking.

    -Steve has enough knowledge of the current Trek fandom that he's heard about the wrangling over Axanar and modern fan films, but he's not deeply involved in any of the Trek internet. I suggested he should definitely do a Reddit "AMA" of some kind, and he hadn't heard of Reddit. But his experiences are fascinating and I hope he can find a venue to widely share them.

    He's got an awesome outtakes reel with Takei too, which he said is just as interesting as the usable footage they got from it. I think he's sailing down to Panama soon, but is hoping to have things digitized in the next month or two.

    Fantastic - does he has to edit the digitized footage. Also the news about Takei coupled with the shot at the top reminded me of this :D :

    HAHAHAHA NO WAY. Steve said there's actually a Sulu bit in The Price of Peace that Takei put in about the importance of rapid transit, because he was on the board of the SoCal Rapid Transit District at the time and it's an issue that was important to him. Seemed a little bit of a non-sequitur to me, but now seeing that clip I can totally picture it.
