                   The Night Of Time

                       StarDate:2391

Fifteen years after the destruction of the USS Equinox (approximate star date 2393) Captain Rudy Ransom, who was beamed from his doomed ship by the Krotownans, is held prisoner in the Delta quadrant for crimes against the race including trespassing in Krowtownan space and the deaths of Krowtown Crew members.    Captain Ransom has very few choices but one chance to return to the Alpha Quadrant some 30.000 light years away.

(Excerpt From "Night of Time")

A breathtakingly beautiful seaside on a rocky coast, as seagulls cry in the distance. CAPTAIN RANSOM, in civilian clothes, watches the waves crashing on the shore, a look of utter tranquility on his face, and sighs in relief, as one who is ready and accepting of death.

Suddenly, two pairs of gloved hands clamp down on his upper arms and shoulders. Before RANSOM can react, the hand nearest the left side of his neck grabs at something under his ear. As the SYNAPTIC STIMULATOR is ripped off, the COAST and RANSOM'S civilian clothes instantly vanish, replaced by

Stardate:2013

In October of 2013 John Savage and Gary Lockwood entertained fans and friends at the Chiller Convention in New Jersey with some of the greatest Star Trek stories ever told. That day "The Night Of Time" was hatched.

The original story placed Captain Randolph "Rudy" Ransom 20 years after the destruction of the USS EQUINOX 72381.                                           (Memory Alpha http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/USS_Equinox)

KHAN/STARTER: 

We have, for almost two years, not stopped working on this project and feel that we have made over 1.000.000 baby steps and we need you the "True Fan" of Star Trek and Film to help us make the largest leap to completion. 

We have:

A. Completed Scripts (Camren T Burton)

B. 3D Modeling complete (Chris Martin)

C. 14 (Fourteen Hours) of Unedited Epic Red 6000 Footage.

Featuring John Savage/Blanca Blanco/David Winning/Glen Wolfe filmed at Phase II Productions. Credit James Cawley.

 James Cawley also came onboard as Executive Producer at NYCC 2014 (Unfortunately according to "King" he will not be able to participate due to his Elvis Touring schedule.  

 PHASE II Executive Producer and Godfather of Fan Films James Cawley and Veteran Actor John Savage.

 Baby Steps:

John Savage made one request "We do this the right way" words that we have lived by.  We have watched over $1.000.000 worth of crowd funding  raised for Fan Films, and all we are asking for is our turn to really give the fans the Star Trek they expect. 

KHAN-STARTER: As we have a lot to work with we need to finish the editing and SFX for the fourteen hours we have already filmed.  We don't have the volunteers the other Star Trek projects have, but what we have is dedicated cast and crew that work for SAG/AFTER scale and a production crew that works hard for minimal pay. 

We are so close to the finish line and need your help today to cross our first of many finish lines this year.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges when making a film - actors dropping out, locations and/or sets not available, unforeseen costs, equipment trouble, etc. In addition, "Star Trek" is a licensed property of CBS and so they have the final say in any Star Trek venture.

However, the Equinox team has dealt with CBS and knows the landscape that must be navigated. Every member of the Equinox is a professional of Actors and Production crew who has proven their skills on other projects and films.
