Garrett Wang joins "Axanar"

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 casts...now with even more stellar stars!

      *head explodes*

    2. Creator Arvid Granat on August 18, 2014

      Sounds good!

    3. Creator Joseph-Dylan Quintinita on August 18, 2014

      Outstanding! Always nice to bring in someone from a ST show.

    4. Creator Michael Faries on August 17, 2014

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

    5. Creator Paul Mazierski on August 17, 2014

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

    6. Creator RobotechX on August 17, 2014

      awesome!

    7. Creator Cameron McNeil on August 17, 2014

      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

    9. Creator Paul Dazeley on August 17, 2014

      Superb choice for another great addition to the project.

    10. Creator Coastal Pete on August 17, 2014

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

    11. Creator Lionel Barek on August 17, 2014

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

    12. Creator Doug Scott on August 17, 2014

      That is aweasome news!!

    13. Creator Robert Lyster on August 17, 2014

      That is awesome! LOL

    14. Creator Lee W. Benjamin on August 17, 2014

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

    15. Creator Robert Carver on August 17, 2014

      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!

    16. Creator Jamie Cecil on August 17, 2014

      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.

    17. Creator Axanar Productions on August 17, 2014

      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).

    18. Creator Emmanuel Aquin on August 17, 2014

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

    19. Creator Matthew Markovich on August 17, 2014

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

    20. Creator Daniel J Balkwill on August 17, 2014

      I was expecting Lt. Chang...

    21. Creator James Cook on August 17, 2014

      Nice! Can't wait to see this!

    22. Creator loghaD on August 17, 2014

      Finally, the promotion he's been waiting for!

    23. Creator JSB on August 17, 2014

      Holy crap this just keeps getting better!

    24. Creator Gloria on August 17, 2014

      Excellent news!

    25. Creator Larry J. DeStefano on August 17, 2014

      Very interesting idea.....like it a lot, he is a good addition

    26. Creator Scott Jones on August 17, 2014

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

    27. Creator Karl Kaiser on August 17, 2014

      Hell yeah!

    28. Creator Jenna Albert on August 17, 2014

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

    29. Creator Brenson Atomsk Humphreys on August 17, 2014

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