Current Production Notes
According to a Facebook post (https://www.facebook.com/stredsquad/posts/1207354645976256), Red Squad will complete production of Episode 4 and then remaster Episodes 1 and 2. This will conclude the project, which was cut short due to the CBS Fan Film Guidelines.
The filmmaker also has shorts entitled "Star Trek Valkyrie" and "Star Trek Pegasus" on his You Tube home page, as well as many other trailers and teasers and tests for Red Squad. We, of course, look forward to each adventure!
Star Trek Begins was a planned project from the same studio. On August 5, 2015, I discussed this with Chris Kroznuski, and he said this was on long term hold, and possibly abandoned. He didn't know when, or if, he would get back to this project. I am leaving my earlier notes here, for anyone who remains interested in its history.
Robert April commands the USS Enterprise before Pike. Live Action Fan series; Adult fans, sets, costumes. Set in the JJAbrams timeline, but before the bulk of his movie, "Star Trek" take place. (North Carolina). Working January 2013.
