The Ready Room 181: Axanar … It’s About What the Story Wants

There’s a movement that is taking Star Trek fandom by storm. It’s on a screen near you, but it isn’t coming from the studios you’d expect. The movement is Axanar, and it’s Star Trek that fans at conventions—seeing it on screen in the booth—have mistaken for the next TV series. After the success of Prelude, it’s time for the final push to film the full Axanar.

In this episode of The Ready Room, hosts C Bryan Jones and Norman C. Lao are joined by Axanar creator and executive producer Alec Peters and director Robert Meyer Burnett to discuss why they want to make the best independent Star Trek film you’ve ever seen, how they plan to do it, how you can help, and why they’re sure that the Star Trek universe really does exist.

In our news segment we discuss Adam Nimoy’s Kickstarter success, an official costume contest for Star Trek Las Vegas, and whether Star Trek 3 will pay homage to Star Trek V.
