Phase II Update and Previews
The last release from Star Trek Phase II was "Blood and Fire, Part 1" last December (see TrekMovie review), but star/producer James Cawley tells TrekMovie the wait will soon be over, with the concluding part 2 coming out by the end of the month. It also looks like Cawley will be shuffling his schedule around a bit. The next episode was going to be "Enemy: Starfleet" featuring BarBara Luna, but that episode still needs some some pick-up shots (to be done in early October). However, post-production work on "The Child", based on an original Phase II script from the 70s, is now almost complete and Cawley says it will probably be their next release.
A preview of "The Child" featuring Phase II’s new Spock, Brandon Stacy (Zachary Quinto’s stand-in for Star Trek 2009) is now online.
Another episode now in post-production for Phase II is "Kitumba" which will explore the inner workings of the Klingon empire. This episode features a visit to Klingon Homeworld Kronos, which was shot on location at Fort Ticonderoga. Here is a matte shot of a beam down to Kronos.
Cawley tells TrekMovie that he is right now focused on the pilot for his new Buck Rogers web series, which goes into production September 25th. The stars from the 80s Buck Roger series Gil Gerard and Erin Grey will be there, playing Buck’s parents. The pick up shots for "Enemy: Starfleet" will be done after the Buck Rogers shoot finishes. Cawley says he has not yet picked the next Star Trek Phase II episode to shoot (next Spring), but says it will either be the light-hearted “Bandi” written by David Gerrold ("The Trouble With Tribbles"), or a fan script from the 70s by Shirley Maiewski called "Mind-Sifter" about the Klingons wiping out Kirk’s memory and stranding him in Earth’s past (our present day).
