    The gist of it:

    Star Trek: Phase II is an award-winning* internet series of new episodes of the orginal Star Trek, featuring the contributions of producers, writers, directors, and actors from that very same original Star Trek series and others in the Star Trek franchise.

    The show that set the standards is going to set another. Three episodes. One film shoot. The goal: release them all in 2013.

    More adventures with Captain Kirk in one year than have been seen since 1969!

    And we need your help...$6000 to make the November 2012 shoot a success and get all three episodes "in the can"!
    $6000 in 21 days - and this is what you'll get in return...

    "Kitumba"- the long-awaited adventure into the very heart of the Klingon empire originally proposed by John Meredyth Lucas for Paramount's "Phase II" series. Written by Patty Wright from Lucas' drafts, the episode stars James Cawley in his last full-length episode appearance with breath-taking special effects by Tobias Richter of The Light Works.

    "Origins: The Protracted Man" - finally, the special effects wizards at The Light Works are able to realize the story first proposed by David Gerrold back in 1967. Adapted by Gerrold for Phase II, directed by Gerrold with rising guest star Matthew Ewald ("Galidor"), a tragedy forces Kirk to look back at questionable choices he made as a cadet and his first encounters with the Enterprise, Captain Pike, and Spock.

    "Bread and Savagery" - there's a new Kirk in town, and things will never be the same! Network television star Brian J. Gross takes the Enterprise back to Magna Roma and a sinister surprise in an original tale penned by Rick Chambers.

    Begun as a childhood dream of Senior Executive Producer James Cawley, Phase II has become the realization of every fan's dream - volunteers coming from around the world on their own dime to make Star Trek for no profit but the joy of it. Every cent you contribute goes directly to fund the cost of finishing the episodes.

    Fans who contribute to Star Trek: Phase II's Indigogo campaign are eligible to receive exclusive rewards in exchange for individual pledges ranging from $25 to $5,000.
    How do we do this for so little money?

    Because every one of our production members is not only a volunteer, but a contributor to the legacy they love. From industry pros coming from around the world to housewives coming from around the corner, everyone works long hours in the heat, provides much of the materials and tools they need to work with, and treats the sets and studio equipment as if they paid for it themselves - because they did.
    So why this appeal?

    NASA will not fund our trips to strange new worlds...or old ones either. It's a pity, but it's the truth. Traveling to both Magna Roma and the Klingon homeworld (Q'nos) involves expenses that are above and beyond our normal contributions...and the stop at Starfleet Academy is a killer one!

    Any funds collected beyond the $6,000 goal will go directly to making more and better Star Trek episodes...and could bring fans glimpses of never-seen-before sets filmed with new equipment!

    Where we came from:

    Spearheaded by Executive Producer James Cawley, the series is filmed in upstate New York on museum-quality duplicates of the original sets with authentic costumes and props.

    Begun as a childhood dream, the project became a passion fueled by James’ work as a costumer under William Ware Theiss on Star Trek: The Next Generation. James’ dedication to detail, boundless energy, and deep respect for TOS has attracted hundreds of fans and industry professionals from around the world to contribute their talents to the non-profit production, including Star Trek alumni Walter Koenig, George Takei, Grace Lee Whitney, Denise Crosby, D.C. Fontana, David Gerrold, Jon Povill, Norman Spinrad, George Clayton Johnson, Majel Barrett Roddenberry and Eugene Roddenberry Jr. Originally named Star Trek: New Voyages, the pilot and nine episodes filmed now incorporate many of the changes planned for the aborted Paramount 1970’s Phase II series in order to track the transition from TOS to TMP.

    Now starring Brian J. Gross as Captain James Kirk, Star Trek: Phase II’s numerous awards include the 2007 On-Line TV Guide Award for Best SciFi Webseries, 2008 Golden Icon Awards for both best Webseries and best actor (Cawley), and both a Hugo and Nebula nomination. Paramount/CBS, who own the licenses to Star Trek, have borrowed costumes, props and set pieces for the production of Enterprise; and the freighter Ticonderoga in that series was a nod to Cawley's hometown. The goal of Star Trek: Phase II is to support and promote Paramount's Star Trek franchise by giving fans and active way to continue their interest in Star Trek: The Original Series.



    "A remarkable encapsulation of the original series with such truth and dedication to the ideals of the ST universe, but with a freshness that the series so deserved. And now the 1701.5 - predecessor to "A" -- all around Brilliant!"

    --EP/Creator of "Aethereal" Tim Sudano
