STAR TREK CONTINUES transfers set ownership to Stage 9 Studios

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!

From the Captain's Chair

Captain’s Log:  this will be my final entry.

It’s incredibly difficult to write those words. It’s also incredibly difficult to express what each of you who have enjoyed and supported STAR TREK CONTINUES have meant to us. It has been perhaps the greatest privilege of my life to have created this series with so many amazing people. The words “thank you” will never suffice to express my gratitude to each and every member of our cast & crew. Only those who were actually there could ever know the amount of effort, sweat, time, passion and love that went into every episode. This series was created for one reason and one reason alone…. to pay tribute to the original series of Star Trek. There were no ulterior motives, no money made, no dreams of stardom or expectations of future opportunities. We made it for love. Our STC production family had a great deal of fun making this series and forged life long friendships. I hope some of that love and camaraderie came through on screen.

I look forward to meeting many of you at conventions in the months ahead. May you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018. Live long and prosper… and thank you for taking this journey with us.
