Star Trek: Federation One will be a four-part mini-series focusing on the President of the United Federation of Planets and their entourage aboard the Federation's diplomatic flagship, Federation One. Operation Beta Shield will serve as a prelude episode to this series setting up some of the cast and situations the show will follow.




DOWNLOAD THE FEDERATION ONE TEASER (10MB - teaser by Philip Hogg)


Star Trek: Federation One (FED) stars Wayne Webb as Lt. Cmdr. Matt McCabe.

McCabe's co-star cannot be revealed at this time because it would spoil the Operation Beta Shield movie, but we promise, the co-star is someone you will instantly recognize and is a fantastically brilliant actor.

Other Confirmed Cast Includes:


David O'Neill as Admiral Selek - Commander in Chief of Starfleet
Barbara Clifford as Maragaret Magowan - Secretary of the Exterior
Jim Davis
Jaques Freydont


"Unity" Guest Cast Includes:

Risha Denney as Elizabeth Shelby
Joni Bovill as Proconsul Yeshva
Andrew Foster
Karl Puder as General Korg


Along with "Operation Beta Shield", the first production episode of Federation One entitled, "Unity" was penned by Brian S. Matthews. Episode filming will overlap with Operation Beta Shield filming beginning this weekend. "Unity" will be released chronologically just after Operation Beta Shield in the latter half of Odyssey and Helena's Season One.

Pre-production on Federation One and Beta Shield have been going on for some time. Sets have been built and designed by Philip Hogg and LCARS made by Craig O'Connor. Federation One itself was designed by Sean Tourangeau. Fans may remember him as the winner of the USS Titan contest. After several designs, we settled on one that was built by Philip Hogg who is also doing the opening title sequence. The model was then handed off to Rob Caves for the in-episode shots. The ship and some of its interiors will make their first appearance in Operation Beta Shield.


Some of the design and production artwork.


Once the Federation One sub-forum is online, we will host a gallery showing the design process of the ship itself which may also be available through Sean's website. A thread will also be started to introduce the cast.

We will have a couple of other exciting casting announcements in the coming weeks including three main cast members, cast portraits, and biographies!

Federation One will run con-currently with Odyssey and The Helena Chronicles. It will release roughly one episode per season of Helena/Odyssey. The following chart illustrates the relationship between the three shows which will all share continuity, and in some cases plots.

Key:

HF - Hidden Frontier
OD - Odyssey
HC - The Helena Chronicles
FED - Federation One
OBS - Operation Beta Shield




All of the shows are planned to wrap up together in a BIG way. We also hope to bring you a new original science fiction project in the next year.

I hope you enjoy Federation One!

Sounds exciting!

Graphics look great as well.

It'll be great to see Barbara back (one of my most favourite actors on Hidden Frontier) and also to see the workings of the Federation from a different angle.

Looking forward to it! icon_smile.gif

Peace from NZ,

I miss Barbara and will be nice to see her again.

I am looking forward to seeing how they develop the Office of the President. It gets very little mention in the trek-verse so the cool thing is they have some room to play.

Just don't have the ship hijacked and the hijackers demanding the release of a tryant, (perhaps a certain beautiful but dictorial president). And the president escapes the hijackers and tries to take back the ship.

Wow. We went from 6 eps of HF a year to 9+ in three series! Woohoo! The worst part of F1 is slow release schedule. I assume it's going to be a counter point and perspective to what we're seeing in OD/HC.

The website listed in the preview doesn't appear to be live yet.

Looks great. It's nice to finally see the final design for Federation One finally. Sean did a great job on that. Hard to imagine that its almost related to the Luna class. Can't wait for this series to come out.

Hey guys,

We're having server load issues with some recent publicity about this. So some download requests for the teaser are showing error messages. Just try back in a bit if you get one.

Thanks for the well wishes!

More pre-production art will be put in a gallery soon and I'll get that Federation One subforum going now, though feel free to discuss here for now.

Cheers,

Rob

Awesome-I can't wait for F1! I love the bridge layout. Is that a totally original design, or is it based on a previously seen bridge?
