You Are Hearing Me Talk... To The Official Star Trek Axanar Podcast

I never cease to be amazed by the amount of creative energy that Star Trek fans put into their 'fan-works' and in recent years one of the things that has come on in leaps and bounds are the fan films produced by volunteer-only actors, technicians and writers. One such production that caught my eye is Star Trek: Axanar,  a Classic Trek-era movie being developed to tell the story of the Four Years War - a pivotal battle between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, hinted at in TOS episodes such as "Court Martial" and "Whom Gods Destroy" and detailed in the old FASA roleplaying game supplement of the same name.

As part of the run-up for the Axanar movie, the team behind it produced the excellent Prelude To Axanar, an 'in-universe' mock Discovery Channel-type documentary about the battle - and you can check that out Here.

Meanwhile, work continues apace on the full-blown prodution, and as part of the project the folks over at the Trek FM network are hosting a regular podcast about Star Trek: Axanar. I was pleased to be invited on to talk with hosts Christopher Jones and Alec Peters about my love of classic Star Trek lore, war stories and more. I also drop a few hints about some of my upcoming novels...
