The best Independent Star Trek ever made!
26 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is the best independent Star Trek short film ever made, and the full length, upcoming feature film will blow everyone away!

In Prelude, the acting, make-up, special effects, writing, camera work, etc. are phenomenal! If you're a Star Trek fan, this short film will bring all the excitement of the franchise back to the forefront of your mind!

You will literally sit at the edge of your seat with your mouth agape as you watch this story unfold. If you want to see true, dyed in the wool Trek, watch Prelude To Axanar and get ready for the ride of your life!

The cast and crew pulled off the best Star Trek I have seen in decades.

Can't wait for the movie next year!
