STAR TREK CONTINUES transfers set ownership to Stage 9 Studios
KINGSLAND, GA USA — Stage 9, the studio that has been home to the award-winning web series STAR TREK CONTINUES since 2013, has transferred the ownership of its sets to Ray Tesi of STAGE 9 STUDIOS LLC. The new entity will remain in the same building where STAR TREK CONTINUES filmed its 3 vignettes and 11 full length episodes.
Vic Mignogna, Executive Producer of STAR TREK CONTINUES, says, "The main priorities for me were to see that these beautiful sets remain intact where we built them, and to know that they would be preserved and well cared for. I'm extremely gratified that Ray Tesi has ensured that these priorities of mine are accomplished."
STAR TREK CONTINUES completed filming their final episodes at this studio in February of 2017. The Board of Directors of Trek Continues, Inc., headed by Mr. Mignogna, have searched for a year for a suitable answer to the question of what to do with the sets that did not include dismantling or destroying them.
According to Ray Tesi, President of Stage 9 Studios, LLC: "This is a lifelong dream come true for me. This is NOT a money-making enterprise, but an opportunity to share the passion that millions of STAR TREK fans have for the series! What Vic and his cast and crew have created is remarkable. The mission of STAGE 9 STUDIOS is to pay homage to the legacy that is STAR TREK, and remain respectful to STAR TREK CONTINUES and CBS BROADCASTING, INC."
STAGE 9 STUDIOS contains a full-scale suite of Constitution-class starship sets modeled after those used in the original STAR TREK series, including: the bridge, transporter room, engineering, sickbay, briefing room, captain's quarters, auxiliary control, a 100 foot-long corridor, a nearby green screen location, and much more!
