Stonewater Productions began collaborating efforts with the Meezmeyer group in August of 2007 and began production in September of that year. The studio teams only met for a few minutes on the morning of September 12th, but once the principle shooting began, the team produced one of the best and only crossovers in fan production history at the time, presenting two different crews on one set. The Meezmeyer team brought their own uniforms and stage props for the shoot, while David Quintana [Director] provided the sets and the story.
The episode concerned the inadvertent arrival of the ASV PRECIPICE to a timeline almost 182 years within its own past, after an attack by the Borg in STB episode 12 "The Marble" which seemingly destroyed the ASV PRECIPICE and arrives in the STNG universe intact, but without its crew. The ship is then found by the crew of the USS PROVIDENCE, who immediately begin efforts to repair the ship and investigate into the mystery of its arrival.
Episode 21 ended with a tremendous viewing of 112,577 hits during the first week of its release, and now the episode has drawn more hits during its re-release on Facebook this week. David says that the footage for episode 21 will make a rare appearance in MINOTAUR to "kind of" tie both of the series together in a future episode.
David added that it's important for MINOTAUR to have a ton of reference material for fans to watch prior to watching the first few episodes of the new series, as MINOTAUR does reference several episodes from the STOS universe. Some fans have started speculating that MINOTAUR might have more of a "nostalgic quip" to lure die hard fans to follow the series.
The studio is currently preparing to release a special "Behind The Scenes" video that was produced at the end of the series run in 2008, which introduces the entire cast of STB and some funny video bloopers that occurred during production.
