Well, I can finally report that the Axanar script was locked last month! Paul Jenkins, legendary comic and game producer (He wrote the origin of Wolverine!) made his revisions to the script and we consider the script “locked”. Now what does that mean? Well, in Hollywood terms, that means there will be no additional scenes, cast or sets added to the script. Dialogue can and always does change, but the script is basically set.
Now it goes to budgeting, and then we will as you, our loyal fans, for helping making the two 15 minute episodes. And let me tell you, they will be better than Prelude! We shared the script with a small group of insiders, and the feedback was fantastic. Keith Sedor, Axanar Podcast co-host, had this to say about the script:
“Gene Roddenberry always looked to the future… to what’s next. But, if he was to write the great prequel story to The Original Series, it would be ‘Axanar’. THIS… is the very purest essence of Star Trek.
“The script for parts IV & V of ‘The Four Years War’ far surpasses the original masterwork of Prelude to Axanar, and remains true to Gene’s utopian vision for humanity. Plus we get to see some characters we really want to see!”
So stay tuned as we post more information about the upcoming shoot and the opportunity for every fan to be part of a fun weekend event that will happen with the shoot.
