GSY: Prelude to Axanar

U.S.S. Ares
If the History channel had these kind of documentaries, I would be a regular viewer. Perhaps someone ought to create a 'Future History' channel for such projects. It proves that there is plenty of material in Star Trek to find great new stories from just small starting points in the series. If you don't remember Garth of Izar at all, you need to go back to season 3 of the Original Series and watch Whom Gods Destroy.

In this episode we are introduced to a famed Federation officer who helped turn the tide at the Battle of Axanar. Prelude is a History channel like documentary about the battle. It features Richard Hatch and Kate Vernon (Battlestar Galactica). Tony Todd , JG Hertzler and Gary Graham (all Trek Veterans) Graham reprises his Soval character from Enterprise.

The full 90 minute feature this group hopes to complete is being funded for in phases through kickstarter. They hope present a traditional feature film version called Star Trek Axanar. They are off to a good start.

Here is Prelude, it is the second video .
