Star Trek Wars goes where no other fan film has gone before. Whether you're a Star Wars or Star Trek fan, we're pleased to invite you on our mission to create a tribute to BOTH classic franchises! With a fantastically original story to tell, our 20-minute comedy is the realization of the epic battle that has existed between Star Wars and Star Trek over the past 40 years.

 Synopsis: "After 40 years, George Lucas has retired from Star Wars but is having difficulty letting go. Meanwhile, Star Trek director J.J. Abrams, is cracking under the pressure of carrying on the legacy of Star Wars VII. As the rivalry builds between these moguls of space film history, the battle of Star Trek vs Star Wars will finally be decided once and for all.

Our Goals:

  • Cast professional actors to accurately portray George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and the entire supporting cast of over a dozen characters
  • Shoot the film with a Red camera in cinema-quality 4K resolution
  • Feed hundreds of cast, crew, and extras over 6 days of shooting
  • Create cutting-edge computer graphics, sound design, and full musical score
  • Release the film online in November 2015 to be enjoyed by every fan in the galaxy!
  • Deliver the film to George Lucas, JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, and Gene Roddenberry's family as a thank-you to their lifetimes of work

Why Make This Film? 2015 is the year of Star Wars VII and 2016 is the year of Star Trek's 50th Anniversary. And for the first time ever, their stories will collide as JJ Abrams becomes the first director of both franchises. As fans ourselves, we want Star Trek Wars to go viral online and be embraced by fans of every kind!

Every aspect of Star Trek Wars will combine elements of both Star Wars and Star Trek! Check out some of our ideas:

Classic Trek and Iconic Star Wars: We will be taking our inspirations primarily from The Original Star Wars Trilogy and Star Trek: The Original Series. The characters, quotes, and famous hallmarks will all be here in clever new ways. And we love easter eggs too.

The Battle: The conflict of our film will culminate in an epic battle scene between Star Wars and Star Trek! From Jedi Knights and Star Fleet Officers, to Storm Troopers and Red Shirts, our choreography action sequence will have it all!  

The Visuals: CGI, titles and transitions, and dynamic cinematography are all important visual hallmarks of both worlds. Expect to see all of this and more as we attempt to recreate these various visual styles. Plus, Lens Flares!

The Music: John Williams, Michael Giacchino, and Alexander Courage are all inspirations for our homage to the original music of Star Wars and Star Trek! Listen to this incredible original composition by Composer Daniel Ellis:

Lightsabers vs Phasers: Sound Effects are critical in creating a rich sci-fi battle scene! This sound design test by Cathy Cardinal demonstrates the potential of this one-of-a-kind battle sequence:

Any good Rebel Leader or Star Fleet Captain has allies! So we have assembled an impressive wealth of artists to collaborate with. From actors to crew members and from producers to designers, we have hundreds of people waiting and ready to craft this film.

The Cast and Crew of "Steven Spielberg and the Return to Film School" (2013)

In 2013, we created a 20-minute comedy-tribute film to Steven Spielberg, which has won awards at film festivals across Southern California and critical acclaim. We worked with over 100 artists on the project and we will have access to even more this time, thanks to our proven reputation. We invite you to check out the full film HERE!

Star Trek Wars is a comedy, heartwarming drama, parody, homage, tribute, and a challenge unlike anything ever done before. It crosses genre borders and takes some serious risks. But they are the same challenges that both George Lucas and Gene Roddenberry faced in working to bring their grand visions to life. So we need your support! Ways that you can help include:

  • Make a Donation
  • Like us on Facebook & Follow us on Twitter
  • Tell your friends
  • Share us on your favorite social network
  • Are you a filmmaker, actor, or artist who wants to get involved?
  • Do you have props, costumes, or memorabilia that you want to be in our film?
  • Would your business like to become one of our Official Sponsors?
  • Email us today @ StarTrekWarsProducers@gmail.com

Just as the Force binds all living things together, so do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. So help us, you're our only hope! And together...we CAN rule the galaxy! We look forward to meeting you soon...

Risks and challenges

Our film's biggest challenge is making it as big as we dream it to be. We want to choreograph a fantastic battle scene, create a product worthy of our source material, and share it with the world. It's a massively ambitious project and while we will do everything possible to ensure success, we look to you to help get us to the finish line.

But when we meet our funding goals, please rest assured that we will not rest until the film is finished, distributed, and your Kickstarter rewards are delivered. This is our personal promise to you and we are honored by your support. Please post any additional questions that you may have! Thank you!
