The Holy Core – A Star Trek Fan Film, Kickstarter now LIVE

Back in January, we brought you the news that the makers of the outstanding Star Trek fan film “Chance Encounter” were once again set to embark on a mission to bring us a fan film.

On March 1st they officially launched their Kickstarter campaign to fund this project.

So what is “The Holy Core” about, well I will leave Gary and Paul to explain this themselves. 

Taken from their Kickstarter page.



The Holy Core

We’re hoping to raise £8,700 (approx $12K USD) so that we can bring this film to life! We have written a powerful story that we think will be exciting as well as thought provoking to watch. We are very grateful to everyone who helped us crowdfund our first Star Trek film, and now we really want to deliver The Holy Core too, so that all the fans who want one more, high quality TNG style adventure can get exactly that!

The Holy Core:

  • Original characters
  • Thoughtful and exciting story
  • Real actors
  • Real sets
  • High production values
  • Thirty minute duration
  • The Next Generation era

We have made many shorts in the past, most notable of which is our first Star Trek project, Chance Encounter. As both film makers and Star Trek fans, we have a proven track record of producing films on time and on budget, and we are very capable of making this thirty minute, TNG era film to a high standard.

But to do so of course requires money, hence the Kickstarter!

Story Pitch

Our Nebula class starship, the U.S.S. Vigilance is in orbit of Vita II, the home world of the Vitans. This humanoid species has finally reached a fragile peace, having emerged from several centuries of religious war. Our Starfleet crew are here to lend vital assistance with a groundbreaking new scientific procedure to cleanse their atmosphere of harmful pollutants – a consequence of their prolonged war.

All is not necessarily as it seems however, and soon our crew are flung into an adventure that sees them tackling difficult topics of faith, science, sacrifice and destiny itself.”


The goal of this fan film is £8,700, as of 04/03/2018 the amount raised is £958, this is an all or nothing fundraiser this means they need the full amount by 1st April 2018.

So if you like the pitch, love the concept pictures above and you want to know more, hit the donate button below and over to their Kickstarter page, where you can find out more about what Gary and Paul have planned for what is sure to be yet another great Star Trek fan film.
