The audio drama Starship Excelsior has announced the release of its latest episode, Tomorrow’s Excelsior.
The USS Excelsior is “on a two-year mission of exploration on the far side of the galaxy,” having arrived there after “passing through [an] ancient Iconian Gateway.”
In Tomorrow’s Excelsior, “Five decades after the U.S.S. Enterprise‘s five-year mission, the Starship Excelsior, NCC-2000, is patrolling the Romulan Neutral Zone, her crew in mourning after a devastating loss. When the Excelsior receives an impossible distress call, from a ship claiming to be the Starship Excelsior, NCC-2000-C, her legendary crew is drawn into a crisis that threatens the galaxy — past, present, and future!”
Half a dozen familiar Trek names are associated with the production, including two regulars from the original series, and various guest stars from the original series (including movies) and from Star Trek: Voyager.
“Making Tomorrow’s Excelsior for the Fiftieth Anniversary was a tremendous privilege and joy for all of us at Starship Excelsior, and we are humongously grateful to everyone, from donors to actors to audio engineers, who helped make this episode a reality,” said a representative for the production. “We are especially grateful that CBS generously tolerated this project at the time it was undertaken. CBS has recently asked fans to refrain from making future episodes with professional Star Trek actors, and we pledge to abide by that request. We hope all Star Trek fans enjoy this one-off Fiftieth Anniversary special episode as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
Tomorrow’s Excelsior is available at StarshipExcelsior.com, on iTunes, and on Google Play.
