Star Trek: U.S.S. Hathaway is set in 2285 (this is the same year of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock) and begins as Captain Jeffery Pierce is just taking command of the newly commissioned ship.
The show will take place during the "movie era" of the original series crew. Our visual and audio inspiration comes primarily from what the producers consider the best of the Star Trek movies, The Wrath of Khan. We hope to explore issues that are current to today's world, much like what the original Star Trek did in its day.
In an on going collaboration with Irish based Star Trek: Grissom productions and Hidden Frontier Productions the U.S.S. Hathaway will make an appearance in the first video production created for Star Trek: Grissom. The video production is a CGI video to accompany their theme music for the popular audio series. With 2 x hour long audio episodes released, and another 2 for release this year, Hathaway's Jeffery Pierce continues to cameo in the Grissom show.
Creator/Executive Producer Seán Paul Teeling approached USS Hathaway Executive Producer, Brad Hathaway in 2008 regarding a crossover with the Grissom storyline. The cross over is based on a shared history between Captain Jeffery Pierce of the Hathaway and Captain J. T. Esteban of tje Grissom whom Pierce considers a mentor.
The CGI video titles, which will feature the U.S.S. Hathaway in a battle scene, are available on Youtube and Vimeo from March 5th, 2011.

Star Trek: USS Hathaway, while facing many obstacles, is still being produced. Our current trailer which was released in 2005 is now considered a "proof of concept". Moving forward we will be rebooting the production. The script will remain the same and the pilot is still to be Genesis. Our current status should be considered in pre-production.
