The Federation Will Boldly Go To War In Star Trek: Axanar!

Trekkers are in for a treat.

Star Trek: Axanar is a full-length feature in development and currently active on Kickstarter. They've already surpassed their $100K goal, and there's still 23 days to go!

What is Axanar about? Oh, just a little thing like THE FEDERATION / KLINGON WAR!

THIS is what I've been dying to see! There's SO MUCH TALK in the various Star Trek shows and movies about legendary Klingon battles, but we only ever get small tastes. Never the meal. Fingers crossed that this is the main course!

Did that big dude making the speech look familiar? Yeah, that's sci-fi/horror legend Tony Todd (Candyman, Sushi Girl), along with Richard Hatch, Kate Vernon, JG Hertzler and Gary Graham, who reprises his role of Soval from Star Trek: Enterprise.

The trailer above is simply for the short film version "Prelude To Axanar", which you can watch right now on the Kickstarter campaign page! (They don't allow embedding here) The Kickstarter itself will be funding the bigger budget, full-length version to follow.

I'm digging the war documentary style interviews mixed with visuals. Here's hoping for all-out battle reenactments and/or "archive footage"!
