Continuing Mission 33: Exploring Star Trek Horizon
Apr 24 16
Tommy Kraft and Actors Look Back.
Since it's public launch in February 2016, Star Trek Horizon has become a bigger hit than anyone—especially creator Tommy Kraft—ever expected. The fan film that serves as a follow-up to Enterprise delivers the Romulan War storyline that fans were hoping for from the show's fifth season. Centered on the crew of the USS Discovery NX-04, Horizon is an example of how to make the most of limited resources to create a product that can holds its own against studio productions.
In this episode of Continuing Mission, host Dennis Castello is joined by Tommy as well as two of the stars of Horizon—Paul Lang, who plays Captain Harrison Hawke, and Ryan Webber, who plays Commander Francis Brookes—for an in-depth discussion about the decisions made in the writing, casting, directing, and look of the film. We also hear first-hand their thoughts on how fans have reacted to their creation.
