What is your history with Star Trek?
I’m a donor and have been in love with Trek since I discovered The Next Generation from a Cheerio’s cereal box in the eighties. From the moment I saw an episode I was captivated. I loved the idea that humanity not only continues, but it thrives. In this vision of our future we were able to move past our differences and unite as one and explore the stars.
I am also the creator of the change.org petition (that is pretty awesome! -editor). I really can’t take a lot of credit for it. I just happened to be the first to do it.
As the oldest of four brothers, my younger brothers all made fun of my love for Trek. I must have had some effect on them because they’re now all as passionate about it as I am.
How did you find the Axanar project, and why are you supporting the fan film?
I discovered Prelude by accident on YouTube and shared it with my entire family this past Christmas. They were enthralled. I support Alex and crew in this endeavor and applaud them for making a movie and writing a story so many of us want to see.
