Something I heard about a little while ago, and not having seen anything here I thought I'd post about the upcoming Trek movie that has me totally psyched. The movie is about the "Four Years War" between the Klingons and Federation which was mentioned in TOS. Here's the 20 minute "trailer" to show you just what the quality of work they're doing is:
Personally? This looks awesome to me. They've blended the newer JJ Trek into Enterprise and TOS wonderfully in the film's style, making what looks like a real-life war documentary while still keeping that Star Trek feel to it. I mean listen to Ramirez's speech! I heard that and I immediately wanted show some Klingons that you DON'T mess with Starfleet. Then there's the names involved: Tony Todd, JG Hertzler, Gary Graham, Kate Vernon, there are some really good veterans of not just Star Trek series, but also sci-fi in general. And to top it all off? This is NOT a Hollywood production. This is a crowdfunded, fan-made, independent movie. There's still time to donate if you want, too. I know I will if I can get the spare cash.
