Star Trek: Captain Pike is the story of Captain Pike when he first takes command of the Enterprise and his first mission aboard her.
After a successful first campaign Rigel 7 Productions have set up another Indiegogo campaign to help complete Act 1 and begin filming Act 2 of this independent film.
As soon as Captain Pike takes command of the Enterprise he receives a distress call from the U.S.S. Exeter.
Captain Tracey explains;
Under heavy fire, shields barley holding…
The exeter is under attack, battling an unknown Alien race that is set on destroying the Federation’s only Starbase and Spacestation in Quadrant 427.
The Enterprise heads to the quadrant on a rescue mission.
