  • Clinton Carter says:

    I am a long term fan of the original show and it has been an inspiration throughout my life. i am early 50’s, a degreed nuclear engineer. i have constructed and operate a remote monitoring and diagnostic facility modeled after Trek that services a fleet of nuclear and fossil fueled plants from our corporate headquarters based in Dallas.

    It would be fun to participate in developing an episode. I am very impressed with the quality and attention to detail that is invested in each of the episodes you produce.

    Thanks for your consideration and keep up the good work!

    Je voulais savoir si l’annonce est toujours d’actualité! Je vous remercie pour ce que vous faites et j’adore l”univers originale de la série Star Trek.

    C’est réellement une superbe opprtunité que vous nous offrez là: Pouvoir participer à faire vivre l’oeuvre de Gene Roddenberry dont je salue l’esprit moderne et visionnaire!

    Compliment à toute l’équipe d’acteurs de Star Trek Phase II.

    • Nicolas says:

      La Production est toujours à la recherche de volontaires pour ses tournages (sur les périodes citées) mais c’est une activité totalement bénévole qui requiert un certain investissement: il faut se rendre sur place, se loger, se nourrir… Et la moindre des choses pour pouvoir s’intégrer à une équipe: comprendre et parler l’anglais suffisamment pour ne pas faire perdre de temps aux autres. Il faut aussi avoir quelque compétence à apporter pour être utile.
      Sous ces conditions, le volontariat est effectivement ouvert. Sinon, il y a d’autres moyens d’aider: donation de soutien, promotion vers l’entourage…
      Merci pour l’intérêt porté à ce projet.

    Dear Star Trek Phase 2,

    My name is Rich Gedney. I previously worked on STP2 in the summer of 2008 during the filming of the episode “Enemy Star Fleet”. During that time I worked Transporting equipment to and from the Ticonderoga location shoot as well as working various jobs in and around the set.

    In the last year I filmed my own documentary “Every Other Sunday”. I produced, directed,shot and edited this documentary. You can view my current edit @ .This month I will be working on two projects. One filming interviews for Movie Geeks United at the Atlanta Film Festival The other is a behind the scenes documentary showing the running of the festival.

    Since working on Phase 2 I have continued volunteering on various film projects here in the Atlanta area. My goal is to continue working and learning the art of film making through hands on everyday set experience. I would very much like to work on your next project this summer. I truly value the opportunity to learn and grow as a film maker. If you have any opportunities available in the Cinematography department or related departments please keep me in mind.

    Sincerely, Rich Gedney

    I’d like to volunteer to be a villan/extra on the June 9-19 shoot at Ticonderoga NY. I have acting experience, and Im presently doing some voice work for Star Trek – Project Potempkin. But I can help out in other ways too…

    I’ve worked building sets and know my way around power tools. I have my own set of landing party acoutraments (TOS communicator, Tricorder, and Phaser – Type II, with the detachable type I), But there’s more… :-)

    I’m also a NYS Paramedic so I can serve as a set medic. And I know my way around a computer too. Thats what my degrees are in, Computer Science.

    Please let me know if I can help and how.

  • Daniel says:

    Do we have to provide our own transportation to NY? I am a HUGE trek fan, I grew up on it as a kid. But alas I live in Washington. I love all the work you guys put into this show though, keep up the good work!

    • Sadly, Star Trek Phase II is not well funded enough o be able to pay for transportation for everyone who wants to participate. But you can participate vicariously–through sending donations, participating on our Forum pages or Facebook pages, our by the most important participation we could ask: watching our producions and telling everyone you know.

      Thanks for your enthusiasm for our project!

  • Daniel says:

    I totally wish I could help you guys. I love star trek and if I had any acting dream, it would be to have even the smallest role in any star trek production. Sadly I live in Washington State and I am way to far away to caste in NY. Keep up the good work though.

  • David says:

    wish i could… but i don’t even live in the came country anymore… let alone state!

  • Christopher.J.Russo says:

    Inquired about joining a shoot about a year or so ago. Contributed as well. Grew up with the original Trek, love your homage!
    Live in NYC, willing to work long hours! Currently a Federal Officer and can get the time off work! This would be a definite high point!

  • Dark Hoffman says:

    Hello, I have enjoyed your webisodes and I believe have captured the fun that probably went into TOS. I was the propmaster and designer on Babylon 5 for 5 seasons and got a lot of inspiration for the show from ST. I’m also a matte painter for many films and TV series. If you need an help with matte paintings, hit me up. I love what they did with remastered original series. Also if you get a chance to come to LA to film, Vasquez rocks is not too far away where they shot a lot of the show there for the outdoor planet scenes, like the fight with the Gorn.
    Cheers and keep up the good work!

  • Scott says:

    I was slated to help out on the fall shoot this past November,but,the weather and some bad timed events in my life put a stop to that.
    Hoping to make up for it by working the June shoot.
    By the way…has anyone got their swag they were promised for donating to the fall shoot.Not trying to be a jerk,just wondering as I haven’t received mine.(Don’t even remember what I’m supposed to get)
    Looking foward to June!!!Can’t hardly wait!

  • Bruce W. Holroyd says:

    Hello Jim!
    You might recall one of your technicians… Howard J. Brown… who presented some paper model kits of the STAR TREK ships to you a while back ( at least, he had told me that he was going to make sure you got them)! Well, I am the one who gave him the CD Rom disc! I met Howard afew years ago, and he had told me about the recreation of the classic Star Trek TV series with new actors in the legendary roles played by William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley. I was thrilled to hear about this incredible undertaking, and when I first watched the premiere episodes that Howard graciously recorded for me on both CD and DVD formats, I was stunned by the outstanding work that your entire cast and crew labored with to bring these NEW episodes to life! I have been a fan ever since; the stories are incredibly entertaining and the special effects rival anything in the movies today!

    Yes! I would love to get in on the ‘inside’ action of Star Trek: Phase II! I am in my early 60’s…not exactly a young ‘trekkie’, of course ( having grew up with the original series), but, as Howard can tell you, I have experience with being an artist…if you are looking for any! Please drop me an email and let me know!

I emailed James back requesting further info; where to report, what accomodations to seek out, etc. but have recvd no response.

    I tried to contact James via the facebook link provided, about joining the crew (or cast as an extra) but I received no response. I see the shoot is just about over, I live in Montreal, so I’d make myself available next time around.

    I have an Anovos captain’s tunic, and a gorgeous filming model of the Enterprise (a ready room prop?)

    hope to hear from you, great stuff, all the best,


  • Veta says:

    I first discovered the wonders of Star Trek: TOS when I was eight years old in 1984: I saw a video of The Wrath of Khan with my parents. Although the reruns of Star Trek were on at 11PM on weekdays, past my bedtime, I persuaded my parents to let me stay up during the summer and on Fridays and other nights when there would be no school the next day. Eventually I was able to tape every episode aired, from “Where No Man Has Gone Before” to “Turnabout Intruder,” with the commercials edited out. (I still have the tapes, despite their extreme uselessness…they’re BetaMax.)

    I was excited about the 3rd and 4th movies, having become a full-blown Trekkie by the time The Search For Spock aired. I went to my first convention when I was 12. During high school and college I found fellow Trekkies with whom I would watch NexTrek (as we called STTNG) and other spinoffs). In college, a dozen or so of us used to crowd into the common room of our dorm to watch NexTrek, and, when they started airing, DS9, and Voyager. (The latter two started, respectively, in spring of my freshman year and fall of my senior year. The mid-’90s was a great time to be a Trekkie.) Although I’m more out of touch socially I still keep up with developments in Star Trek.

    I can’t travel at present (family obligations), or I would be thrilled to come join in the fun, but if there’s anything I can do from home, let me know! (For example, I could help work on and/or edit storylines, etc. — I’m good at spotting spelling/grammatical mistakes, plot inconsistencies, etc.)

    Live long and prosper!

    Dear Phase2

    Are you planning to shoot some of the future episodes in the United Kingdom or Europe? Have seen some of the very first episodes today and the production values have gotten better with every episode. (l’m autistic and involved with the Funky Liama project,which is a learning disability project based at Theatre Royal,Plymouth, uk) Keep the star trek spirit alive.

  • Patrick J. Kester says:

    I have been a lifelong Star Trek fan. I was involved in the school plays while in high school. I have also acted in our local community theatre. In one of my professional careers I worked as a weather forecaster for the United States Air Force, so speaking in public or in front of a large group of people does not bother me in the least. I would consider it a privaledge to be part of the filming for Star Trek Phase II.

  • Alfredo Maranca says:

    How may we help?

  • Mark Reyes says:

    I’d love to help as a P.A./extra I am a semi- retired public servant. I would come on my own dime. I would no problem leaving a donation-and on the way out.

  • Bob Lippman says:

    I’m pretty close to you guys, in Saratoga Springs NY. I’ve done a fair amount of commercial sculpting in the toy and game industry, and would be willing to volunteer my services if you need them for makeup and props. Best of luck to you all, live long and prosper!

  • John Gossett says:

    As a therapist and social worker (and former military man), I have always enjoyed the vision of Star Trek. I have throughly enjoyed Star Trek:Phase II. Hope to be there at some point and time to be involved. God bless and safe voyages! John Gossett

  • Fred donath says:

    Live in Syracuse would travel to help out. Love Trek and all forms.

  • Jeffrey Brown says:

    How I wish I still lived in Upstate New York! Alas, I moved from there years ago. I am a huge fan of the original series, and I am very excited with how this project has progressed. We’ve all seen the power of sci-fi fans in action. At some point, I plan to make a donation to the cause. I have family in Essex County. My ancestry in that region goes back to the American Revolution. I wish you all well in your endeavors.
