About this project

This project has been a labor of love, a Trekker from day one, the Producer of this project has created an original Star Trek drama, written with the characters of the beloved 60's series.

The full length production design, emulating the traditional graphic style of Hanna-Barbera's "Johnny Quest"   also circa 1960's, is in two episodes of 52 minutes each. 

The concept is one of an alternate universe, where in 1966 a one-off pilot special from the Desilu Studios explored the possibility of a prime time animated series.

This project demonstrates what could have been - and brings it to this reality with YOUR help! Not your Saturday morning kiddie cartoon, this is a serious Trek adventure, offering complex characters and expansive story lines, emulating cel animation. For a live-action rendering, it would have required special effects and out of studio location filming seen only in major motion pictures of that time period, never television offerings. 

Every ounce of care has been brought to this creation: high cinematic quality, HD, stereophonic sound.

Risks and challenges

At the halfway point, the producer, graphic artists and actors cannot complete this project without additional funds. $5,000 will get them over the hump and help to complete this project!

Our specific challenge is funding the remaining graphics - which have to meet a high level of quality to match the existing work.
