Today around 200 people volunteer their time to produce each episode of “Star Trek: New Voyages.” The show is filmed in an old dollar store in Ticonderoga, New York. Each show takes about four to six months to produce, and costs about $50,000, all donated by fans. People have come from all 50 states and as far as Germany and Australia to give their time, money and passion to the show.
Interesting, in the video the fans say a Paramount lawyer called and said “we get it, keep doing what you’re doing, just don’t make money” – that’s pretty encouraging to hear, fans making content is here to stay, smart of Paramount to keep this alive.
