Trek Alumni Support

Several past members of the Star Trek cast and crew have expressed support for the project, and even contributed to it.


The pilot, "Come What May", featured Eddie Paskey (Crewman Leslie) as his character's own father, Admiral Leslie, and John Winston (Mr. Kyle) as Captain of the USS Al-Batani, Matthew Jefferies (an homage to the real Matt Jeffries who designed the TOS Enterprise). It also featured author and STAR TREK COMMUNICATOR Editor Larry Nemecek as Outpost Director Carl Strickland.


The first episode, "In Harm's Way", featured Eugene Roddenberry Jr., the son of the late Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, as a consulting producer. In the same episode, actor William Windom played Commodore Matt Decker, the same character he played in the 1967 original series episode The Doomsday Machine. Actress Barbara Luna, who had a part in the original series episode Mirror, Mirror, also apeared as did Malachi Throne, who guest starred as Commodore Jose Mendez in the original series.

The third episode, "World Enough and Time", will feature actress Grace Lee Whitney, who played Janice Rand in the original series. It is not clear whether or not she will be playing Rand. New Voyages's executive producer James Cawley has stated that Whitney will not be the only guest star to appear in episode four, describing the announcement of her appearance as "the tip of the iceberg". He later announced the addition of George Takei, the original Sulu in the original series and movies. World Enough and Time is co-authored by Marc Scott Zicree (also directing), who wrote the "First Contact" episode of ST:TNG and "Far Beyond the Stars" for ST:DS9; and Michael Reaves, who wrote an unproduced script for Star Trek: Phase II in which Sulu ages by thirty years. It is upon this original script that the episode is based.

And as recently announced on the New Voyages website, David Gerrold (author of the TOS episode The Trouble With Tribbles) has signed on to pen two episodes. One, originally entitled "Blood and Fire", was originally pitched for TNG, but was ultimately rejected for it's controversial storyline, dealing with an AIDS-like virus and homosexuality. (It was later re-worked as the third book in his Star Wolf series of novels.)

Trivia

  • The sets for New Voyages are said to be almost exact copies of the ones from TOS. This was made possible by the series having access to the original blueprints rather than just photos.
  • Star Trek: Enterprise has made use of the fan series by borrowing some of their props (most notably the helmsman's pop-up console viewer) during the two-part episode "In a Mirror, Darkly", set in part on a similar ship, the USS Defiant, as seen in the original series episode "The Tholian Web".
  • Unlike the official Star Trek series prior to Star Trek: Enterprise, the CGI-rendered ships are able to move in all dimensions rather than just the horizontal plane. This has been the subject of some controversy. (The USS Enterprise is more akin to an aircraft carrier than a fighter jet.) Other liberties in the design of traditional Star Trek ships (for example, the Doomsday Machine) have similarly been criticized.
  • Improvements in professional quality production software available even to home users have allowed a very small SFX production team led by animator Max Rem to provide the series with cutting-edge special effects work that serves to honor the design of the original series.
  • The series was featured in the December 2005 issue of WIRED Magazine, spotlighting the production of "To Serve All My Days".
