‘Of Gods and Men’ is probably the most anticipated fan (or independent) Trek film ever made. Unfortunately those who have been waiting to download it will have a bit longer to wait. Originally the first part of the 3-part miniseries was to premiere in late December, however TrekMovie.com has learned that it has been pushed back to mid April. TrekMovie recently got a heads up on this from inside the OGaM team, apparently the issue isn’t actually Part 1 which is ready to go, but all the effects work needed in the other two parts (especially part 3). The team want to have all 3 parts released closer together, hence the delay. Parts 2 and 3 will be released in May and June respectively.
This film is considered the closest thing that the fan film world has got to ‘the real thing’ due to the number of Trek veterans both behind and in front of the camera (like director Tim Russ and actors Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig and Alan Ruck). It is even possible that this film could break the ‘fan film barrier’ and become officially licensed by CBS Paramount. TrekMovie.com will have more on OGaM as it gets closer to release. Expect an announcement of the delay and some more details at the OGaM official site soon.
