Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, the web miniseries starring numerous Star Trek alumni and directed by Tim Russ, has completed production in Los Angeles.
eMediaWire has posted the press release from the production, which states that filming has wrapped as of October 1st in anticipation of a Christmas release. The installments, each 30 minutes long, will be available as internet downloads.
Of Gods and Men stars original series actors Walter Koenig (Chekov), Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) and Grace Lee Whitney (Rand), with appearances by Voyager's Garrett Wang (Kim) and Ethan Phillips (Neelix), Deep Space Nine's Cirroc Lofton (Jake), Chase Masterson (Leeta) and J.G. Hertzler (Martok) and Enterprise's Gary Graham (Soval) and Crystal Allen (D'Nesh) among others. Many members of the production team also worked on Roddenberry on Patrol.
"What we have achieved thus far has gone way beyond my expectations," Russ said. "The majority of the film was shot without key personnel and critical materials in a number of production areas...the cast and crew have been tremendous, working extremely hard to achieve our goals." He predicted that fans would be "absolutely amazed" by the finished result.
Onetime Deep Space Nine writers Jack Trevino and Ethan H. Calk wrote the teleplay with producer Sky Douglas Conway. The miniseries was filmed in part on the Star Trek: New Voyages set.
