Axanar: The Official Podcast

The Year In Review.

2014 ended in a way we never imagined when the first Axanar Kickstarter was launched. What began in the spring as a project to create a unique fan film that was a notch above what had been done before turned into a juggernaut. Support for Prelude to Axanar was incredible, but what came afterwards was unbelievable. Thanks to you, our amazing supporters, Axanar has transformed into a professional studio production that shows the power of Star Trek fans as well as their thirst for great storytelling.

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters look back at the year that was, how the initial steps were planned and executed, the appeal of Axanar, and how a devoted community has turned this dream into a movement. We also delve into the future of Star Trek, where the franchise might go on television, and what we’d like to see in the years to come.

In our news segment we bring you an update on Ares Studios, learn about the upcoming Propworx Star Trek auction, and find out what Alec was doing along with many of our favorite Trek actors as they stepped back in time to the Mercury Theatre on the Air.

16: Just Beam In the Carpet

Modeling the Ares.

 

Seeing your favorite ships on screen is wonderful, but being able to build them yourself, bringing them to life in 3D, is even better. In this episode of the official Axanar podcast Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Dennis St. Pierre of Starcraft Models to learn about the manufacturing process of the Ares garage kit, how Dennis first encountered Axanar, and plans for the Klingon D6 and future ships. Alec and Rob also bring you an update on the new studio space and plans for renovation.

The New Studio and More.

A lot has happened for Axanar to close out 2014, and as we transition to a new and exciting year we bring you up to date. In this episode of the official Axanar podcast Christopher Jones passes the hosting baton over to Robert Meyer Burnett who then digs deep into the key developments that have set Axanar up to find the essence of Star Trek. In fact, we discover that independent productions may just be a way of life! Find out about the new Ares Studios in Valencia—soon to be home to Axanar sets and the sci-fi film school—plans for production, the thirty-mile rule, and catch up on the status of the Axanar Blu-ray and DVD development with the producer himself.
