Fans who visited MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, this weekend had the first chance to see the newest episode from “Star Trek Continues” … and now the rest of the world can watch it online.
“Come Not Between the Dragons” was written by James Kerwin, Vic Mignogna and Greg Dykstra based on a story from Dykstra. In the episode, which was directed by Julian Higgins, a troubled creature pierces the hull of the USS Enterprise. That pits the crew against a pursuer who threatens to tear all of them apart.
This is Dykstra’s first on-screen writing credit, although he has had a strong career as a sculptor for a number of animated features including “Finding Nemo” in 2003 and “A Nightmare Before Christmas” a decade before. He also worked on some other Pixar classics like “Monsters University,” “Ratatouille” and “The Incredibles.”
Kerwin is known for his work on a number of independent projects, including the 2011 miniseries “Yesterday Was a Lie” and the 2013 short film “R.U.R. Genesis” that also featured “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” regular Chase Masterson.
Higgins is an independent writer and director with an extensive resume, and hails from the same hometown — Tarpon Springs, Florida — as the fictional character Trip Tucker from “Star Trek: Enterprise.”
“Continues” stars Mignogna, Todd Haberkorn, Chuck Huber and Christopher Doohan. The episode also features Gigi Edgley from “Farscape” fame.
Oh, and if you look closely, you might catch a cameo from Rod Roddenberry before the opening credits.
