STAR TREK CONTINUES.”

STAR TREK CONTINUES is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, fan-produced webseries… the brainchild of long-time Star Trek: The Original Series fan — and producer, director, actor, voice-actor, musician — Vic Mignogna.
Our “Stage Nine” (an 18,500-square-foot studio named after the original soundstage at Desilu) has housed the largest, most complete standing TOS sets in the world — including the bridge, corridors, turbolifts, quarters, sickbay, briefing/rec room, transporter room, Jefferies tube, engineering, auxiliary control, shuttlecraft, planet sets, and more — precisely constructed using the original Star Trek blueprints (see our interactive virtual tour above).
From “Where No Man Has Gone Before” to “Turnabout Intruder,” TOS chronicled the first four years (2265–2269) of James T. Kirk’s historic five-year mission before the series was prematurely cancelled. STAR TREK CONTINUES is proud to be part of Trek history, completing the final year (late 2269 – early 2270) of the original adventure.
Vic and our team of talented film professionals raised the bar in the quality of stories and overall production on one of the most recognized, popular fan productions ever made.
|THE HISTORY OF STAR TREK CONTINUES
“In 2011, I was invited to direct an episode called ‘The Price of Anything’ for the fan series Starship Farragut. It was a very enjoyable experience, and we quickly became friends united by a love of Trek. While we were shooting, I expressed my long-time desire to create a continuation of The Original Series myself. Shortly after the shoot was completed, Farragut was informed that they’d have to vacate the 2500-square-foot building in which they had been located. As they were trying to decide what to do with the sets they’d built there, I approached them with the idea to form a partnership. Farragut agreed, and my dear friend Steven Dengler and I invested the money to lease another building — this one being nearly 10,000 square feet. Farragut moved their bridge and a few other things to the new facility, and I purchased lumber and materials to recreate the original soundstage more completely. STCís director of photography, Matt Bucy, drew up the floorplans based on The Original Series’ soundstage layout… and construction began.
“A large number of local volunteers worked very hard for the next several months, and I joined them myself several times to help with construction. The arrangement was that STC would provide the money for the building lease and set construction materials, and Farragut would provide the labor to build. Both productions would shoot their episodes there — an equal partnership. STC filmed our first episode, ‘Pilgrim of Eternity,’ in January 2013.
“STC and Farragut shot episodes at the facility just as planned until late 2014, when Farragut Films decided to move into a movie-era production. I made an offer to buy them out of their percentage of the sets, we agreed to an amount, and — as of January 2015 — STAR TREK CONTINUES became the sole owner of the sets called ‘Stage Nine’ (in homage to the original soundstage at Desilu Studios). Soon, we expanded into the other half of the building as well, making the total size of our facility 18,500 square feet. This additional space allowed room for the engineering and planet sets, as well as make-up, wardrobe, common areas, changing rooms, props, food preparation, etc.
“STC produced eleven full-length episodes with millions of views! We’ve won numerous awards and have been applauded by professionals, critics, and laymen alike. We are so privileged that you have been a part of this exciting adventure!”
