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 ambitious and newly-extended 25-minute film comedy is the realization of the epic battle that has existed between Star Wars and Star Trek over the past 40 years.

Film 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 Achievements in 2015:

  • We completed filming in April & May over 6 days of shooting
  • Collaborated with over 150 talented filmmakers, actors, and artists
  • We shot on the Red Epic in cinema-quality 4K
  • Worked with a fully-costumed cast of over 60 actors
  • Fed over 300 cast, crew, and extras in total
  • Partnered with Thunder Studios in Long Beach, CA
  • Shot an epic battle scene on their 10,000 square-foot soundstage!

 All of this would not have been possible without the generosity of our previous 91 Supporters, but we still need your help!

Our NEW Goals:

  • Create top-of-the-line Special Effects
  • Design a professional Sound Mix and Effects
  • Compose an Original Score which pays homage to the music of both franchises
  • Create a fully illustrated poster in the style of classic Star Wars/Trek posters
  • Submit to film festivals across the country
  • Release the film online FOR FREE in December 2015 to be enjoyed by all!
  • Deliver the film to George Lucas, JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, and Gene Roddenberry's family as a thank-you to their lifetimes of work 
  • Animate a fantastic Space Battle credits sequence!

Why Make This Film? 2015 is the year of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens 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! So we need YOUR help to finish what we started.

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 took 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 culminates in an epic battle scene between Star Wars and Star Trek. From Jedis and lightsabers to Star Fleet Officers and Phasers, our choreographed action sequence will have it all! But, we still need to raise some funds for some amazing visual effects to truly bring this battle to life!

The Visuals: We have the dynamic cinematography, but we still need CGI, titles and transitions to fully construct the important visual hallmarks of both worlds. With your support, you can expect to see all of these visual styles and more recreated.

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:

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 
  • 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. Together...we CAN rule the galaxy!

Risks and challenges

Our film's biggest challenge is making it as big as we dream it to be. We want to finish what we started, 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.

When we meet our funding goals, please rest assured that we will continue working arduously 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!
