Star Trek Anthology CrewStar Trek Anthology is a new anthology web series based in the Original Series universe. James A. Bray is the creator of this new web series and has set up a Kickstarter to help fund the project.

Here are the details from the Kickstarter page.

The concept for “Star Trek Anthology” will be very much the same.  Each segment of the series will take place primarily in the original Trek series period.  Our premier episode will feature our tent-pole production, “Starship Challenger,” the story of Captain JM Colt and the crew of the Challenger, a Miranda-Class Starship, as they explore the outer rim of the galaxy…

…but that is where Trek canon ends.  Where Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek was a “Wagon Train to the Stars,” Starship Challenger is more of an “Express Train to the Twilight Zone.”  Throw in a pinch of “Galaxy Quest” and “Outer Limits,” and well, you kind of get the idea.

The pilot is written and ready to shoot, as well as a second episode…and a very funny and moving vignette.  Challenger may be a common thread that runs through our other planned series, such as “Assignment: Earth” and “Mother”; a story of a family-run freighter, in a vein similar to Firefly.

They hope to raise $7,500 to help with studio, equipment, miscellaneous props, and other production expenses. They currently have $673 and have 17 days remaining of the project.
