The Directors Video Blog on Facebook released new production stills from the second Minotaur trailer this morning. The new photos present the Minotaur's bridge, a new class of Borg Ship, and a dazzling shot of the crew. There are certainly BIG surprises ahead for Trekkies everywhere!
The series director/writer [David Quintana] mentioned that the new "behind the scenes" material is just another morsel for Trekkies to sate their appetite for a deeper look into this long anticipated series ever since the successful release of the initial series trailer. With fan interest now growing in Europe, South Africa, and the Middle East, the new "inside look" is sure to bring more fan email and inquiries through the series blog; which even now has broke previous studio records concerning incoming email.
"We are not the next big phenomena" says David. "We've had an outstanding promotional push and the series trailer definitely hit a nerve with the European Trekkie fan base because of our presentation of the Borg. We still have a long way to go to prove that the series will be great entertainment".
The studio has remained tight-lipped about progress on the series production, giving out very little information concerning the ship's crew and their possible alien lineup set for character build up. But there has been some leeway in the director/writer giving hint that the Commanding Officer of the Minotaur may be represented as an alien, but that has still not been confirmed.
Fans have written in inquiring the addition of the Ensign Jadrian Quest character [portrayed by the talented Dru Marie Rovito], a possible "prelude introduction" of the future Captain of the ASV PRECIPICE from the Star Trek Beyond web series, now posted on Facebook. David stated that the character of STB plays a significant part of the plot and story for Minotaur, but that she is not the lead character in the new web series.
Minotaur will be releasing a second series trailer in August, of which David has said, "We have a talented cast on this series - all of whom are bringing their best skills to make the series a delightful run of fresh entertainment. I believe that we will be successful in our own special way, separating ourselves from story lines and plots that can be found in the vast line of other fan series on YouTube and on the web. This is a brave new attempt at creating a new Star Trek Universe while strictly remaining in line with Gene Roddenberry's vision and canon."
The series second trailer is bound to be released in mid-August, a release date has not been decided on.
