Star Trek Axanar Kickstarter For Your Consideration

When it comes to Star Trek I love the original series and many of the myriad of fan films that have graced my computer screen over the last several years. This one just came across my desk from the Facebook of George Takai. After looking over the the Kickstarter page I was impressed enough to make sure that the word got out about this one. It however only has twenty hours to go? We will see this one made? It would warm this old Treker's heart to see this film made. 

Further Details Right 
Garth of Izar has always been a favorite of mine ever since I was a kid and I watched Trek reruns out of New York on channel eleven on a Saturday afternoon. Later the Four Years War would make its face known from Fasa's Star Trek Rpg module The Return to Axanar. This production is original and follows some very interesting twists and turns. 

The plot of this one follows the events that almost tear the Federation apart and leaves a great many worlds in flames and ruins. 

Axanar takes place 21 years before the events of “Where no Man Has Gone Before”. It tells the story of Garth of Izar, the legendary Starfleet captain who is Captain Kirk’s hero and the role model for a generation of Starfleet officers. Garth charted more planets than any other Captain and was the hero of the Battle of Axanar.  His exploits are required reading at Starfleet Academy.
This is the story of Garth and his crew during the Four Years War, the war with the Klingon Empire that almost tore the Federation apart, and whose resolution solidified the Federation and allowed it to become the entity we know in Kirk's time.
It is the year 2245, four years into the war with the Klingons.
I'm really loving the pre-production artwork of the Klingon ships and some of the Federation forces. Here are a few examples : 

Go take a look and see what I'm talking about. Throw a few credits their way and let's get this one made.
Live Long and Prosper !
