Garrett Wang joins "Axanar"

Posted by Axanar Productions (Creator)

The Axanar team is proud to announce that Garrett Wang, "Harry Kim" in Star Trek: Voyager, has joined the cast of Axanar.   Garrett will play the Klingon Commander of the first D-7 to enter the war.

I decided I wanted Garrett on Axanar after seeing him at Fed Con in Germany.  Garrett is not only an accomplished actor, but a fantastic presence on stage.  After watching him on stage with Roxanne Dawson, I decided that Axanar could benefit immensely from both his acting and his enthusiasm for Star Trek. 

I had the chance to meet with Garrett in Las Vegas at the Star Trek convention and we watched Prelude together.  He was sold and told me he wanted to play a Klingon and we discussed the various Klingon roles available. 

We hope you are all as excited as the Axanar team is to add Garrett  to the team.

      Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than this! A fan-funded Star Trek movie about the beginnings of the Federation starred by stellar with even more stellar stars!

      *head explodes*

      *Fantastic* choice. Looking forward to seeing Garrett spread his wings wider (and soar higher) with this role!

      The momentum continues to build.........

      Awesome I love Garrett. Been a fan of his for years. Loved Voyager and Of Gods and Men. Cant wait to see this. Im going to a convention in October in Nashville called GMX and he is going to be one of the guests so I cant wait to see and hear him speak and pick his brain on all things Star Trek :)

      He's going to do an excellent job! He was downright scary in the Voyager episode "Timeless". I didn't like it as much there because Harry Kim was always so kind, and it felt sad to see him so embittered; As a Klingon though, it's gonna be great! :D

      Superb choice for another great addition to the project.

      What?? No!! You`re lining up a Stella cast!

    9. Lionel Barek on

      It should be interesting seeing him as the villain against Star Fleet...

    10. Doug Scott on

      That is aweasome news!!

    11. Robert Lyster on

      That is awesome! LOL

    12. Lee W. Benjamin on

      Fantastic News! He'd look good in a Klingon fu-man-chu style moustache!

    13. Robert Carver on

      This is a fantastic addition to an already stellar cast! He has come a long way from being the innocent, young Mr. Kim we saw on Voyager. He seemed to have relished his role as a heavy on Of Gods and Men so I'm sure he'll have a blast playing the Captain of the first D-7 to take on the Federation! This will be EPIC!

      The cast keeps getting better and better! Saying that, It's hard to see Garrett playing a baddie. He's such a nice guy in Voyager. I guess it will be a testament to his acting. Welcome on board.

      I'm so excited I want this film yesterday.

      Well, Garrett wanted to play a Klingon and I also don't want to see the actors who play well-known Star Trek characters in other roles. But with proesthetics, we don't see that actor (e.g. Richard Hatch).

    16. Emmanuel Aquin on

      Very good news! But Star Trek also needs women! Bring us some female officers and captains!

    17. Matthew Markovich on

      You should have used a photo of him from "STAR TREK OF GODS AND MEN".

    18. Daniel J Balkwill on

      I was expecting Lt. Chang...

    19. James Cook on

      Nice! Can't wait to see this!

      Finally, the promotion he's been waiting for!

      Very interesting it a lot, he is a good addition

    24. Scott Jones on

      Awesome but strange, its hard to imagine him as a klingon...

    25. Jenna Albert on

      Love this!!! He was so awesome as Ensign Kim :)!

    26. Brenson Atomsk Humphreys

      Nice! It will be great to see Garrett again. I think Kim could make a great Klingon.
