In 2017, filmmaker Gary O'Brien released his first Star Trek fan film, Chance Encounter. It was well received and has been viewed more than 50,000 times. Gary lives and works in Oxfordshire, England, and is part of a growing band of British filmmakers creating new and exciting Star Trek stories. His latest project, The Holy Core, is essentially a Next Generation story centered on the exploits of the Nebula-class USS Vigilance as the crew seeks to assist the inhabitants of the planet Vita II after a long and costly religious war. However, all is not what it seems.

In this episode of Continuing Mission, Gary chats with host Tony Robinson about The Holy Core, what he has learned since Chance Encounter, and tells us about the Kickstarter campaign designed to support the new project.
