Axanar: The Official Podcast
5: There Be Andorians Here!

Supporter Questions and Fundraising Ins-and-Outs.

The level of support being received by Star Trek: Axanar is unprecedented, not only financially but also in pure excitement and dedication. The premiere of Prelude to Axanar has kicked the warp factor up a few notches, and has also generated some great questions from fans and supporters.

In this episode of the official Star Trek: Axanar podcast, Alec Peters and Christopher Jones sit down to answer some of those questions and provide some background details about how the fundraising process works. Amongst the questions about creative that we dive into are the possibility of seeing Andorians and Tellarites in the full Axanar film, what format that film will take compared to Prelude, and whether or not we'll see the USS Kelvin. Plus, we learn the surprising design process behind the Vulcan patch that will be heading your way as supporters.

In our news segment we get an update on all the happenings from Axanar's trip to Houston Con, plans for the upcoming Dragon Con and Garrett Wang, and the status of the current Kickstarter, which is closing in on the final stretch goal.

4: Putting the Puzzle Together

Editing Prelude to Axanar with Robert Meyer Burnett.

Even before Prelude to Axanar premiered at San Diego Comic Con, the trailer let fans know that this wasn't just another fan film. The writing, acting, sound design, visual effects, and directing all turned the collective head of fandom. But someone had to pull all those pieces together and assemble them into a two-and-half-minute package. That man is Robert Meyer Burnett, the same man who has dazzled fans with the documentaries and extras found on the TNG and Enterprise Blu-ray sets.

In this episode of official Star Trek: Axanar podcast we're joined by Rob who tells us the story of how he got involved in the project, how he condensed Prelude to Axanar into that final trailer (which was originally five minutes long!) and how working on Axanar differs from other projects he's been part of. As a bonus, we close out the discussion with the story behind the TNG single-disc Blu-ray releases like "The Best of Both Worlds" and why those exist.

In our news segment we recap Star Trek Las Vegas events and the screening of Prelude to Axanar, get an update on Kickstarter, find out more about Garrett Wang's upcoming life as a warrior, and get set to invade Houston Comic Con.
