Star Trek Origins: Son of Mogh
Organized by: Star Trek Origins
Star Trek Origins: Son of Mogh is a new Star Trek series based on the first Klingon main character to appear in the franchise- Worf. An hour long pilot episode will take place in the year 2346, Mogh moves his wife and a five year old Worf from Qo'noS(the Klingon home world) to live on the Khitomer Colony. That same year the Klingon Empire and Romulan Star Empire became allied, however a conspiracy between the Romulans and the House of Duras left the Klingon Empire open to betrayal. The Romulans attacked the Khitomer colony, the Federation starship USS Intrepid answered the colony's distress call however, upon arrival nearly all of the 4,000 Klingon colonist had been killed including Worf's parents. Chief Petty officer Sergey Rozhenzo of the USS Intrepid found Worf in the rubble and took him in after failing to find any living relatives. Rozhenzo and his wife Helena took Worf to the planet Gault where they raised him- a world of about 20,000 inhabitant that are mostly human.
After the pilot the series will start out with Worf adapting to his new family, life, and the struggles of being the only Klingon on Gault. Key things such as a 7 year old Worf bloodying the noses of some teenagers whom he deemed disrespectful, and a 13 year old Worf playing soccer, and the move to Earth with his family will be featured early on in the series. The series will progress into a "Coming of Age" for Worf in which he travels to Qo'noS at 15, and becoming the first Klingon to enter and graduate from Starfleet Academy . In true Star Trek form "Star Trek Origins: Son of Mogh" will touch on political and social issues that are relevant to the times.
Who are we? It seemed like it was just yesterday when we were on our high horse as high school senior's only to be knocked back to the bottom as freshman again, this time in collage. That was six years ago and now we are nearing the end of our collage career and have begun to think about what we want to do with our lives. There are two things that brought the 4 of us together as friends 1. Bonding over being an hour from home for the first time and 2. Our love for Star Trek- that's when we knew the friendship was real. ( Background Story: we have rel arguments about whether TNG is better than The Original Series, or if we prefer B'lana over Seven of Nine) Star Trek for us is more than "nerds that dress up and go to conventions", for us it represents compassion for all life and being able to exist and respect one another despite our differences, and the advancement of technology. This year will be 10 years since the last Star Trek series aired its last episode. We think its time to get back to quality television, so we came up with and registered a new television show titled Star Trek Origins: Son of Mogh.
We need your help! As you know producing a television show is not cheap. The average cost to produce a television show with an estimated run time of 42 minutes cost anywhere between 2 and 6 million dollars per episode. However, we have estimated a budget of 1.3 million dollars to produce a 1 hour pilot episode the will be shopped to networks. Because the four of us will be graduating from Ohio University with MFA in Cinematography this August we have decided that it would be more cost efficient and make the most sense for us to produce the pilot episode ourselves. The money raised will go towards studio rental, building the set and props, hair and make-up, wardrobe, equipment and talent. At this time we have started to write the script for the pilot episode, we will be posting blogs on our website that will be up soon that that we can keep you guys updated. Once our website is up we will post it to twitter, there you will be able to follow our progress.
We wouldn't be able to do this without you and for that we thank you! QA TLHO'!
