Yorktown: A Time to Heal


An interesting Star Trek news item I found in the Fan Film Follies email box revolves around an 80s Fan Film starring George Takei. I wasn’t even aware this footage existed. According to the Star Trek Expanded Universe Wiki “A Time to Heal was a partially completed Star Trek fan film produced by Stan Woo. Jem Ong Woo financed this project and served as Executive Producer. The film was directed by Da Han (pseudonym). Planned as a follow-up to the team’s first short film (Yorktown: In Temporary Command), this second installment depicted events occurring between the original series and the feature film franchise. The episode began filming in 1985, with George Takei reprising his role as Hikaru Sulu. The story was about a possible invasion of the Federation by the Klingons, and the intervention of Sulu to try to stop it. Unfortunately, for various reasons, the film was never finished. Principle photography was 100% completed, so there is still a chance that this film may be finished someday.”

It will be interesting to see if this does indeed get completed some 25 years later. We’ll let you know how things advance.
