“Stormfront” a Star Trek Fan Film Production

If you remember the last part of 2016 and into the first part of 2017 we have been posting “Visits” with the cast and crew of the Melbourne Star Trek Fan Film Production.  The first part of their story is available now on ShadowStorm Studios YouTube channel and it has been officially named Stormfront a Star Trek Fan Film Production.  This was a labor of love that our friends Vance Major and Jeremy Minard have been planning and working on for the past couple of years and they finally get to see their “child”, the U.S.S. Melbourne, off to the big wide World.  Part of the fun for ComicPop Library was doing the “Visits” with everyone, but Vance and Jeremy had a surprise for us.  They allowed the ComicPop Crew to have a cameo scene in the production.  We are the crew of the U.S.S. Carson.  Logan is the security officer that gets shot, Jonathon is the communications officer that gets stabbed, and I (Richard) am the Captain of the Ship – Captain Stapleton.  Who would have known it would be so much fun to die.  We had a great time during the shoot and visiting with everyone and the camaraderie that everyone shared.  Without further a due here is Stormfront a Star Trek Fan Film Production through ShadowStorm Studios, have fun – Richard:
