Golden Age Film; Series (Drama) — Oklahoma City
Starship Valiant is a new web series in development at Starbase Studios and created by Michael L. King. The science fiction series takes place roughly after the 3rd season of the original series and focuses on the starship USS Valiant NCC-1707.
Starship Valiant is a web series inspired by the 1966 classic series created by Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek. The show is set after the 3rd season of Star Trek and follows the exploits of the Federation Starship USS Valiant, a Constitution-Class ship.
The vessel is captained by Jackson K. Bishop, a stellar man at the helm but riddled with personal challenges. His second in command is Leeza S. Kennedy, an officer who excels in all that she does.
The missions of the Valiant are not that of direct exploration but she is a true “police-ship,” in that she goes where she is needed and most of time this elicits hostile territory. It is our goal to create a series that strives on the human condition. Human beings at their best but not always triumphant in their missions. Personality clashes and deeply developed characters that people can relate to.

Quickie! A little short diversion by none other than Craig Frey Jr.
Presented as a film, but really more of a short VFX reel -- there's no narrative and no voiceover.
