FedCon 23 - 2014 - Düsseldorf

Welcome to my report on the FedCon 23, which took place in Düsseldorf, Germany.

This year, we had three special Star Trek Phase II panels where we were able to show a number of short films. As in past years, we also filmed the Press Conference in full length.

We are still putting together this website and will be adding more pictures and videos soon. We have some great material to show so please come back again, shortly.

Star Trek Phase II at FedCon

This year, Star Trek Phase II originally planned to have James Cawley and Brian Gross as guest stars. They were both planned to come to FedCon, but work got in the way and they had to cancel at short notice. Tobias Richter, Stefan Mittelstrass and myself (Peter Walker) put together an alternative Phase II program for FedCon at short notice.

James Cawley is now America's number 1 Elvis Presley impersonator and has so many bookings that it is difficult for him to get away. Unfortunately, he was booked to give an important concert during the FedCon period and considering how much money he needs to earn to pay for the shoot in June, he could not afford to cancel that concert.

All the same, it was possible for us to put together alternative panels where Tobias gave a panel on the special effects he created for Phase II and I gave two, 2-hour panels showing behind the scenes videos and our short films including our latest short film "Going Boldly" featuring Brian Gross. We were also able to show some important scenes from the new episodes.


Star Trek Phase II related panels at FedCon 23 - Europe's largest Sci-Fi Convention.

Star Trek Phase II is now a regular feature at FedCon where it has gained an every increasing popularity. 3 of our 5 panels were played to a packed room with hardly a spare seat to be had.

This year, we were also able to present two panels from our sister production - Star Trek: Axanar - where the new trailer "Prelude to Axanar" had its world premiere to loud applause from the audience.

We had permission to video all these panels so you will be able to see them all right here on this page as they are released in the same order they took place.

This year, I had upgraded my camera to the Panasonic FZ200 and took over 4000 pictures. Due to a number of reasons, I have not yet prepared the images for upload. A selection of the best pictures will be appearing here soon.
