My search-fu turned up diddly, so I'm going to assume this isn't posted anywhere yet.
Have any of our Trekkies heard about this indie movie project yet? Star Trek: Axanar surrounds the Battle of
Axanar, and if the finished product is anything at all like the teaser mini-docu, it's gonna rock.
“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.
“Axanar” tells the story of Garth and his crew during the Four Years War, the war with the Klingon Empire that almost tore the Federation apart.
Garth’s victory at Axanar solidified the Federation and allowed it to become the entity we know in Kirk’s time.
I'm giddy to see Gary Graham reprise his role as Soval, I thought he did a simply fabulous job portraying him in Enterprise & really wish he'd been
written in more than he was. Aside from him, I'm simply astounded by the quality of the CG, that deserves some seriously high praise right there

I was going to post this myself but forgot, doh!, I watched it the day it became available and must say it's one of the best fan made Star Trek
show's yet. Axanar was really good and having Tony Todd (excellent in DS9's The Visitor) and JG Hertzler (General Martok) on board made it even
better for me, I look forward to the movie.
Ahhh, I'm so desperate for a new ST anything that I've watched this 2 more times, lol. For a teaser (or proof of concept?) this back-story
really sucks you in. And listening to JG Hertzler talk doesn't hurt any, that man has a great voice. Tony Todd, too, I'm tempted to go rewatch The
