Axanar Podcast # 24 – Origins



Axanar 24: The Yuri Gagarin of Star Trek Fan Films
James Cawley talks Star Trek, Phase II, and Axanar.

He’s the one who showed us all the way. Star Trek fan films and independent productions are flourishing today, but more than a decade ago James Cawley set forth as a true pioneer. Star Trek: New Voyages, now known as Phase II, was the first to chart the territory that makes Axanar possible. Cawley truly is the father of Star Trek fan films.

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by James to discuss why he decided to create his own stories, the experience of shooting new Star Trek, what makes a great fan film, what he has planned for the 50th anniversary and beyond, and his advice to Axanar.

In our news segment, Alec and Rob recount Axanar’s awards haul from Treklanta, the now-available digital download of Prelude to Axanar, more perks, an update on bridge construction, and more!
