UPDATE: We’ve got another new photo of Chris Doohan as Scotty! Check it out.
TrekMovie is excited to bring you the title of the upcoming Star Trek Continues episode, “Fairest of Them All” and exclusive shots of the cast in Mirror Universe uniform. The new episode, written by James Kerwin & Vic Mignogna and directed by James Kerwin, will take place in the mirror universe. The story picks up where The Original Series episode “Mirror, Mirror” left off and tells the story of what happened to the mirror landing party after returning to the I.S.S. Enterprise. The episode is set to release June 15 at Supanova in Sydney, Australia, and will be available on Vimeo and YouTube the same day worldwide. Also lookout for a behind the scenes documentary dedicated to the making of “Fairest of Them All”.
We are also thrilled to announce a TrekMovie.com special event. Kicking off the big Creation convention in Las Vegas, this July 31st (Thursday night — Friday morning) TrekMovie.com presents a FREE midnight screening of “Fairest of Them All” with a Q&A session with cast and crew after the show, including Vic Mignogna (Kirk), Chris Doohan (Scotty), Asia DeMarcos (Marlena), Kipleigh Brown (Smith), plus James Kerwin and several members of the crew, and a special appearance by Michael Dorn! Hit the jump for details!
Exclusive cast photos from “Fairest of Them All”
The latest from Star Trek Continues takes us where no fan film has gone before… into the mirror universe established in the famous TOS episode “Mirror, Mirror.” Fairest of them all takes place directly at the end of “Mirror, Mirror” when the mirror crew are sent back to their own I.S.S Enterprise. The episode features BarBara Luna-approved actress Asia DeMarcos in the iconic role of “Lt. Marlena Moreau” plus Trek alumnus Kipleigh Brown (Taylor in “Enterprise”) plays the helmsman — the Mirror version of a special character who will be familiar to TOS fans. As an added bonus, Trek alumnus Bobby Clark — the Gorn from TOS — will appear in a cameo role. Hardcore Trek fans will know that Clark was also in the original “Mirror, Mirror” episode as Chekov’s henchman.
Like the other 2 episodes of Star Trek Continues, “Fairest of Them All” captures the genuine look and feel of The Original Series, as it was shot in the 1960’s. No stone was left unturned in producing accurate TOS Mirror uniforms from genuine cotton velour (as used in the late 60s), and repainting/rebuilding the sets to match the second-season Enterprise as seen in “Mirror, Mirror”. That authenticity is evident in these TrekMovie.com exclusive photos of Kirk, Scotty, Lt. Marlena Moreau, and Smith.
