A Star Trek festival and Starship Farragut premiere coming to Kingsland, Ga. |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
KINGSLAND, Ga. -- A group of avid Star Trek fans from the First Coast and beyond has been laboring to recreate the magic of the original 1960s NBC series.
Farragut Films recently moved its studio from St. Marys into a bigger facility in Kingsland. Crews have been working on tearing down and rebuilding classic Star Trek sets for months, including the iconic bridge and transporter room.
Now they're far enough along, they are inviting the public to see their accomplishments.
A "Farragut Fest" will be held Saturday, December 8 at Farragut Films' Studio at 516 W. William Ave. in Kingsland to celebrate science fiction, Star Trek and all things related to Starship Farragut from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a news release from the group.
It starts with an open house at the studio that includes being able to experience all the standing sets that include the bridge, transporter room, shuttlecraft interior, Romulan bridge, sickbay, briefing room and a full curving corridor.
The sets were built by volunteers from Jacksonville, Southeast Georgia, North Carolina and the the Washington D.C. area.
That night, the public is invited to the premiere of Starship Farragut's latest episode, "The Price of Anything," at Camden County High School.
Although it features different characters, Starship Farragut, is produced to resemble the original series as closely as possible.
