I was alerted to this Kickstarter campaign by David Gerrold – the writer who gave us “The Trouble with Tribbles” – when he wrote about it on his Facebook page. It’s for the production of an indie Star Trek series called “Axanar.” This is what the series would be about, according to the KS page:
“Axanar” takes place 21 years before the events of “Where no Man Has Gone Before”, the first Kirk episode of the original Star Trek. Axanar is the story of Garth of Izar, the legendary Starfleet captain who is Captain Kirk’s hero. Kirk himself called Garth the model for all future Starfleet Officers. Garth charted more planets than any other Captain and was the hero of the Battle of Axanar, the story of which is required reading at the academy. This is that story.
If you ask me, it’s closer to the spirit of the original Star Trek than the “rebooted” version we currently have:
