For fans of the Star Trek Phase II fan film project, the latest episode, Kitumba, has just been released.
Star Trek Phase II is the continuing voyages of Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise, taking place in the fourth and fifth seasons of the original series.
Kitumba, was originally meant as a two-part story for the proposed Star Trek: Phase II television series back in 1977. Now a single episode, Kitumba features the Enterprise on a “suicide mission to the heart of the Klingon Empire.”
In Kitumba, viewers will see the Klingon homeworld and explore Klingon society, and the episode “bridge[s] the gap between the TOS Klingon Empire and Klingon Empire [seen] in the feature films.”
James Cawley reprises his role of Captain Kirk for the last time. Brian Gross will play the role in subsequent episodes.
Next up for the Star Trek Phase II will be The Holiest Thing, due out on Valentine’s Day, and Bread and Savagery. Mind-Sifter will come after that, with filming due to be complete on the episode in late June.
