Striving to go where no internet film has gone before, Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, is an all-new three-part mini-series featuring many Trek alumni, with a cast that spans all 5 Star Trek TV series, as well as eight of the Star Trek feature films. The ultimate salute celebrating Star Trek 40-plus years, Star Trek: Of Gods and Men will be released on the Internet, with each webisode approximately 30 minutes in length.
Star Trek: Of Gods and Men stars Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols (Uhura and Chekov of the original series) and Alan Ruck (Captain John Harriman of the 7th Trek feature film, Star Trek Generations) along with Grace Lee Whitney (Janice Rand of the original series). Joining them are Garrett Wang (Star Trek: Voyager) and Ethan Phillips (Star Trek: Voyager as well as Star Trek: The Next Generation); Cirroc Lofton, Chase Masterson and JG Hertzler (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Gary Graham and Crystal Allen (Star Trek: Enterprise), Herb Jefferson (Battlestar Galactica) plus Tim Russ (reprising his role as Tuvok from Star Trek: Voyager), who also directed. The same team that created the hit “Roddenberry on Patrol,” currently in DVD release, and also directed by Russ, is producing the webisode mini-series.
Inspired by the high quality fan films produced by New Voyages, Exeter and Hidden Frontiers, Executive Producer Mac McRoberts proudly states, “I can’t think of a better way to honor the 40th anniversary of the original series than to produce an original three-part mini-series premiering on the internet for Trek’s millions of fans world-wide! Nichelle Nichols, who is reprising her famous role of Uhura states: “Gene Roddenberry would be so proud of this film…its message…the love and dedication that went into its creation. Gene would have been thrilled by the fact that a Star Trek film will be seen by millions of fans utilizing a technology envisioned on Star Trek: personal computers and the internet! This is not a coincidence.”
Producer Sky Conway and Deep Space Nine freelance storywriters Jack Trevino and Ethan H. Calk wrote OGAM. Director of photography is Doug Knapp. In addition, many artists in the fields of makeup and lighting have joined them for what is sure to be a history-making event.
Star Trek: Of Gods and Men was produced in association with Star Trek: New Voyages and was filmed in part on the “New Voyages” sets in New York. In addition, numerous location scenes were filmed in and around the Los Angeles area, including the famous Vasquez Rocks, a familiar location seen in many episodes of the original series.
More than 50 film professionals (all Star Trek fans) have worked tirelessly to produce this labor of love!
