In November we reported that Star Trek New Voyages was working on a re-edited version of their second episode “To Serve All My Days” featuring Walter Koenig and written by D.C Fontana. Originally planned as an Internet release for Christmas ’07, it has now turned into a gala event.
Gala Premiere For a Star
“To Serve All My Days: A Night in 1969” featuring new scenes, music and CGI will premiere on March 29th in Beverly Hills at the Fine Arts Theater. This will give Koenig’s episode the same gala celebrity-filled treatment as the most recent STNV episode “World Enough and Time” featuring George Takei which premiered at the Fine Arts Theater over the summer. The event will also be used to promote the campaign to get Walter Koenig a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Koenig is still the only member of The Original Series cast without one. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame committee will be voting on Koenig’s star in June.
This event will feature “To Serve All My Days: A Night in 1969,” other rare television footage, and many new surprises. Doors to the Fine Arts Theatre in Beverly Hills will open at 6:30PM (Pacific Time), screenings begin at 7:30PM, with a Q&A session to follow the screenings. Invited guests will include many from the the STNV cast and crew, various Star Trek celebs, Walk of Fame committee members, and of course TrekMovie.com (along with other members of the media). The Internet version will be made available to coincide with the premiere.
James Cawley has provided TrekMovie.com with another shot made by Daren Dochterman and the effects team for the new version of “To Serve all my Days.”
More planned for 2008 and beyond
After “To Serve All My Days” is released, James Cawley tells TrekMovie.com that they will quickly follow that up with the first part of “Blood and Fire,” written by David Gerrold and featuring Denise Crosby. Part 1 should be available in April with part 2 likely to come out in May.
The STNV team is also already into pre-production on two additional episodes. The first will be “Rest and Retaliation” written by Dave Galanter and Greg Brodeur which begins location shooting at Vasquez Rocks in late March. Kevin Rubio is directing and hopes are to have that episode out some time in 2008. That episode will be followed up by “Killkenny Cats” written by Jimmy Diggs adapted from a story intended for Star Trek Enterprise. “Killkenny Cats” will feature the Kzinti, the cat-like creatures invented by Larry Niven and so far only seen on The Animated Series. Cawley tells TrekMovie.com that they will have fully rendered CGI Kzinti, which can be seen on the promo poster below.
