Star Trek: Captain Pike Kickstarter

1 min read

STCP-050715

A new Kickstarter seeks to raise funds for a Star Trek: Captain Pike pilot.

The forty-five minute pilot would be the prequel to a feature length film called Encounter at Rigel.

Star Trek: Captain Pike will tell the story of Captain Pike “when he first takes command of the Enterprise and his first mission aboard her.” Those involved with the Star Trek: Captain Pike Kickstarter will then submit the pilot to CBS “for consideration as an ongoing cable or webseries.”

Actors who will be involved with the project include Trek veterans Dwight Schultz, Linda Park, Robert Picardo, Chase Masterson, Sean Kenney, Ray Wise, and Bruce Davidson. Jorge Pallo will also be involved in the project.

The goal for the Kickstarter is to raise $112,000, and the Kickstarter will run through June 5. To see the perks and to donate, head to the link located here.

  1. A remake isn’t Roddenberry’s “vision.” In fact, I don’t think he was real happy to sign off on ST:WOK. Trek isn’t suppose to be rehashing former themes. It’s supposed to be innovative. It was supposed to follow this mantra:

    “Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its 5-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”

    That’s what I like about ST2009. I thought it was very innovative. It promised many new themes. Nero’s attack on the USS Kelvin would have inspired the Federation to venture further into unknown territories. And they went for rehash. Remakes are always a gamble. They lost.

  2. Why are these people constantly putting down the new movies? And why do they have to comment on them at all?.

  3. These films are good-just not ‘good’ enough for your rarefied (and super demanding, hard to please) tastes. All of you are trapped at the founding moment of Star Trek (or when you discovered it) and are caught in an endless purity loop that nobody can satisfiy. That makes you like those that are inbred (in particular the blue bloods of European royalty in the last two centuries, or the people that practice such in the outlaw Mormon sects in the USA) and that eventually means that you will die out as the fanbase for the original Star Trek ages and dies off. That might be cool beans for you, but not so much for CBS and Paramount, which is why they’re making these new movie with new young directors bringing new ideas to the table (kind of like what Kirk said in The Search For Spock to Scott; ‘Come come now, Mr.Scott-young minds, fresh ideas, be tolerant.’

    As for Axanar, I wouldn’t count on it to be more popular than the official movies from Bad Robot, no matter how much money they put into it; the official movies have more eyeballs than yours among fans and the general public who don’t need to know everything there is about past continuity/canon to enjoy a Star Trek movie like you all do.
