About this project
YOU can achieve Star Trek immortality from just $20!!! Have a look at our rewards...but especially The DOOZY!!! It's a killer. This campaign ENDS September 11, so don't miss out!
Here are some typical comments from fans of Project Enterprise:
“To again see the Enterprise in all her glory would be a dream come true. Please bring her back to the people who love her!”
“I just wanted to say how thrilled I am that you started Project Enterprise.”
"Best wishes to you and all on board the Great Endeavor"
Star Trek is now without it's most loved, revered, and recognized iconic movie symbol since Paramount sold off our damaged, resprayed, and mishandled original movie Enterprise---which has become THE quintessential Enterprise in the minds and hearts of fans---into private hands in 2006. This is a cinematic catastrophe, and while we are still around to do it, we want to correct this ridiculous state of affairs by recreating our original Starship---only this time 50% larger and 200% more beautiful than our original using the most modern technology and materials to then travel the world forever for the delight of Star Trek fans everywhere. Not a digital phantom, but the REAL Enterprise by the people who created her in the first place. We guarantee she will knock your socks off when you see her. But as Nichelle says, first, we need your help, and we have some fabulous incentives and great premiums to offer you in exchange for your contribution at any level.
"Star Trek fans have always impressed me with the their dedication towards preserving the legacy and ideals of the series, and Project Enterprise is no exception. It's great to see the original movie team committed to physically re-creating the ship that my father, Gene Roddenberry, originally envisioned 50 years ago."
Project Enterprise Phase One allowed us to put everything together---our beautiful website (please visit for complete details of all premiums, videos, interviews, and much, much more http://projectenterprise.space), how the project will be organized, producing great collectible premiums, bringing the lovely Nichelle Nichols aboard as our charming spokesperson and champion, and gaining the support of Rod Roddenberry.
This Phase Two will allow us to flood Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media, and especially to hire a top PR agency---they don't come cheap---to arrange for Paul to spend every day on the airwaves all over the country for two months to alert Star Trek fans worldwide to Project Enterprise and to encourage them to join us through their contributions in Phase Three: the push to raise $400K+ to begin the two year rebuild of the Enterprise, her virtual reality 3D display, flight cases, and all ancillary electrical, sound, and video equipment. It will take much more than that, but once we are up and running---beginning the rebuild---completion funding will be made through the documentary rights, further fan participation, and corporate sponsorship. NASA will even join in with us at that point! If you are interested in corporate sponsorship, or if you are a major investor who might like to own shares in our Enterprise ($10K minimum), please see bottom of page. We have a complete program for both.
Phase Two is critical in order to proceed, and to that end, in addition to our unique premiums, we're offering you the kitchen sink: something unique and truly very special: Please see the video below for full details...but you will see the spectacular EXTRA you will receive on each reward from the $20 level up...everyone who pledges $20 or more will have their name included on a graceful sculpture scrolling a credit rollup that Richard and Paul will design (and Jim will create) that will accompany the Enterprise wherever she appears. This alone gives you true Star Trek immortality. But there's much more: from the $125 reward upwards you really do get the kitchen sink: not only will you have your name scrolling on the sculpture on the dais, your name will be fired from the Enterprise in a blinding flash of light onto the sculpture in bold face glowing type (with sound effects!!!), plus your name will also be inscribed on a golden scroll that will be placed inside the ship to stay forever in a ceremony captured in the news media and the feature documentary...PLUS (yes! there's more), you will also receive a credit on the feature documentary as a VIP Phase Two contributor! Now that's stardom!
Just as V'ger (!!) carried the gold record of humanity on it's trek through the Solar System and beyond, YOU will also have your name etched onto a golden scroll that we will place inside the Enterprise and filmed for the feature documentary directed by Richard...so your name will not only be shown to the millions of fans over hundreds of years, you can take pride knowing your name is etched onto the golden scroll of Phase Two contributors inside the Enterprise and that YOU have done your bit to help re-create the Enterprise for Star Trek fans everywhere. When our Enterprise has film adventures out in space (and she will surely feature in many future Star Trek films), you can be tickled knowing YOUR name is aboard!!! You and the world will witness the event on the documentary and on show as the Enterprise travels the planet, and you will be forever part of Star Trek legend and Enterprise history. That's for $125 pledge and up...on top of the valuable collectibles you get! Please help spread the word to anyone you know who loves Star Trek...this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for ANY Trek fan and Nichelle, Rod, Paul, Richard, and Jim would love for you to join our family. Let's do this together in true Star Trek style and re-create the beautiful Starship Enterprise for everyone who loves her and wants to see her up close and personal.
Only Phase Two contributors will have this chance to be associated with the Enterprise in such spectacular fashion. Phase Three contributors will not. This is your shot for immortality at its most glamorous, and we need you now! Don't let this once-in-a-lifetime chance pass you by. And what a gift for a loved one! Go ahead...make their day! Their life!
If you know a Star Trek fan to whom you would like to give something so very special that will leave them absolutely speechless, or a loved one to whom you simply want to say "I love you" in a spectacular way like no other, or possibly someone you wish to honor or to thank, or you would like to give your child something absolutely unique and special that will last a lifetime---a truly priceless and unique gift that will keep on giving---give them the $125 reward and the accompanying legacy that will last their whole lives and be reflected in THEIR children down through your family's generations and beyond! What a way to say "thank you" or "I love you" to someone you care for...or even to honor a loved one who may have passed. They will live forever for every fan of Star Trek as the Enterprise continually travels the world for the delight of all Star Trek fans into the 24th century and beyond and your name, or the name of your loved one is continuously fired from the Enterprise to glow upon the Scroll of Honor sculpture rollup.
We believe in giving great value for money, and we hope you will find a premium level to delight you on top of whatever credit level you choose. At every premium level, we have strived to offer unique and truly valuable and collectible premiums. Please join us and make the Enterprise we all love a reality for all Star Trek fans the world over to enjoy.
If we are lucky enough to exceed our $50,000 goal, then any extra will go towards Phase Three (and wouldn't it be something and make a great story if Phase Two raised the $400K+ we need to launch!!???). It could happen!
Have a look at this video to fully appreciate how YOU can enter Enterprise history for as little as $20 and have YOUR NAME on display WITH the Enterprise through the 24th century (and beyond)!

LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!
Just before our Kickstarter campaign went live, I received this letter:
"Subject: Thank you - Most Beautiful Ship - Message: Good Evening. A great thank you to Richard, Jim, and yourself for building the most iconic Enterprise in the Star Trek franchise. In my opinion, the refit Enterprise is the most beautiful space ship model ever developed for movies. It has stood the test of time. It must be gratifying to all of you that when you look at different fan sites and Star Trek model makers, the biggest compliment and most requested model is the refit Enterprise. The level of detail incorporated into the model is fantastic. Your work with the paint was fantastic and gave the scope of size and realism to the model. My favorite part of the design is the level of detail given to the nacelles on which Mr. Taylor did a great job. To me it tied all parts of the ship together. I know it was a challenge to paint, but the end result was second to none. Jim showed how great he is at his craft. In this day of CGI, the art of model making has been lost. The level of realism of the refit Enterprise greatly surpasses the CGI model of the so called JJ Enterprise. The biggest mistake of the reboot Star Trek is that they didn't use the perfect design the three of you came up with. In the next few days, I am going to send a small donation to help with the project. I can give a little bit at a time. If you get the word out to the masses, and if every fan of the refit Enterprise gave $20, you would have the funds in no time. I hated the fact that a private collector bought the movie model. Paramount should have treated it with respect and had it fixed for the public. Yours is the Enterprise that people identify with. Not the Next Generation Enterprises, not the JJ Enterprise, but the refit Constitution class is what most people love. Selling to a private collector who obviously does not care about getting it back to its previous glory is a shame. Once again thank you to you three for the excellent work you did with the model. I hope that your new Project Enterprise gets on track and I look forward to seeing the refit Enterprise once again in all its glory. Best Regards, Phil Barchat, Kissimmee, Florida."

Risks and challenges
The only risk is that fans don't respond to Project Enterprise. From the fans who have already contacted us who desperately want to see the Enterprise live again---and on the big screen again as well---we think there is little chance of that. It's really up to each one of you! Please spread the word and the Enterprise WILL live again...only even more beautiful and in a spacial environment designed by Richard and built by Jim---an absolute master---that will blow you away. Just look at what you get at even the $20 reward level! The timing is perfect, and we are the only people on the planet who can do this and make it stick. It simply must be done for all sorts of wonderful reasons. But whatever premium you purchase, you get great value for money, and you can take that to the bank!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
