Back in December 2006 TrekMovie posted a story about a possible web animated series being developed byDavid Rossi, Doug Mirabello and José Muñoz. Later called "Star Trek: Final Frontier" the project essentially died with the 2007 layoffs at StarTrek.com. Now in a new interview and on their new website, Rossi, Munoz and Mirabello give out all the details on this Trek that never was.
Star Trek: Final Frontier – the interview
If you need a refresher, or weren’t around back in December 2006, “Star Trek: Final Frontier” was a pitch for a web (or possibly cable TV) Star Trek animated series set in the 26th century. It was a back-to-basics approach set in a dark era for the Federation, where a new hero (Captain Alexander Chase) and a new crew of a new Enterprise tried to bring the light back to galaxy. The project was under consideration at CBS, but it died when the staff of StarTrek.com were laid off that the site went dormant in December 2007.
Now in a new interview with Trekkie Central Magazine (the official mag for the fan series Star Trek: Hidden Frontier), you can learn more about the series and its history. The article is embedded below, or you can go to issuu.com to view it there or download it.
