Thanks to an introduction by Richard Hatch, Star Trek: Axanar Producer Alec Peters brought Mark and the team at LEM Media Productions and Sol 7 Post to handle the audio and editing for the feature. Mark will be heading up the creative and organizational aspects of post production as the Post Production Supervisor. He’ll also be at the helm of the editing process. Principle photography on the feature begins in late October in Los Angeles. Mark will be on hand there to edit footage as-it-bears and support the production during photography in that manner.
Also, it appears that Mark and LEM Media Productions may also be in the captain’s chair of editing the latest Star Trek Phase II episode. More on that as Starfleet Command reports.
“Axanar” takes place 21 years before the events of “Where no Man Has Gone Before”. It is the story of Garth of Izar, the legendary Starfleet captain who is Captain Kirk’s hero and the role model for a generation Starfleet Officer’s. Garth charted more planets than any other Captain and was the hero of the Battle of Axanar and his exploits are required reading at Starfleet Academy. This is the story of Garth and his crew during the Four Years War, the war with the Klingon Empire that almost tore the Federation apart, and whose resolution solidified the Federation and allowed it to become the entity we know in Kirk’s time.
It is the year 2245, four years into the war with the Klingons.
