Ready to share with the world the story about one of the most famous captains in the Star Trek franchise, Rigel 7 Productions has hit global crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to secure $50,000 for the film Star Trek: Captain Pike.
The new film is about Captain Pike as he first takes command of the Enterprise and his first mission aboard the series’ ship. This is the untold story about Pike’s life before Captain Kirk. The production team stated:
“In the original Star Trek Pilot, ‘The Cage,’ set in the year 2254. Captain Pike and his crew are returning from Rigel VII, where several members of the landing party were killed by the inhabitants. The incident filled Pike with so much guilt that he is considering resigning his commission. But that’s all we know about Captain Pike, and we want to know so much more. Don’t you?”
Star Trek: Captain Pike will reveal answers to the following questions:
- What happened on Pike’s first mission with his female first officer, and his science officer, Mr. Spock?
- Did Pike ever go into battle?
- Which alien race did he encounter before any other Starfleet Captains? We know Captain Pike’s father is Admiral Josh Pike, but we never learned about the Admiral and which starship he commanded.
The team also shared:
“We never learned about many of the federation Captains that we saw in Star Trek TOS or their descendants. In this film, we’ll answer all the questions you’ve always wondered about. And you’ll see many famous Starfleet officers at the beginning of their illustrious careers. We would like to show you Star Trek: Captain Pike first, to prove ourselves to you. Then, if we have enough fan-support, we will continue with Captain Pike’s Saga with a continuing web-series.”
Starring in the film will features former castmates of the hit series and new faces.
Backers will receive various rewards for pledging to the campaign such as the digital download of the film, the scenes handbook for the film, USS Exeter patch, soundtrack CD, etc.
Since its debut, Star Trek: Captain Pike has raised nearly $25,000 from 172 backers. It is set to close on July 8th.
