Inside the U.S.S. Enterprise with Star Trek ContinuesJune 20th, 2014
The terrific fan-made Star Trek series, Star Trek Continues, continues to impress us with its storytelling, acting, set pieces and production. Wired paid a visit to the set of Star Trek Continues and got a tour of the U.S.S. Enterprise with actor Vic Mignogna who plays Captain Kirk on the series.
The team behind the series recreated the Desilu set as closely as possible, from the Bridge to Sick Bay to the Transporter Room. They even recreated the iconic Jefferies Tube! It’s incredible and who among us wouldn’t want to spend a day exploring the Enterprise?
Created by Vic Mignogna who also stars in the series as Captain Kirk. Mignogna invited Grant Imahara (Mythbusters) and Christopher Doohan (son of James “Scotty” Doohan) to also be part of the series since its inception. Star Trek Continues also stars Todd Haberkorn as Mr. Spock, Chuck Huber as Dr. McCoy, Chris Doohan as Mr. Scott, Kim Stinger as Lt. Uhura, and Wyatt Lenhart as Ensign Chekov. The first episode in the series was directed by Mignogna with later episodes directed by Chris White and James Kerwin. The premise of the series is based on the original 5-year voyage. The original series ended three years into the journey.
