Farragut Films has partnered with Dracogen Strategic Investments to create a high-quality, original webseries based on The Original Series of Star Trek.  The webseries stars John Broughton, Michael Bednar and Holly Bednar with an ensemble cast.  Series premise simply put, “New Ship, New Crew, New Adventures – but all based on the era of Classic Trek.”

Starship Farragut was conceived by John Broughton in November 2004 and officially launched in July 2005.  An official series trailer was released in January 2006 with their pilot, “The Captaincy” premiering in February 2007.  Over the years and with each production, the Farragut Films’ team has strived for excellence and improving each adventure.  As the project has evolved, so have the TREK SETS, which are housed in Studio 2 located in Kingsland, Georgia. With an almost 10,000 sqft facility – it’s literally the largest collection of free-standing Star Trek sets on planet Earth!

Working in partnership with NEO f/x since inception, Farragut Films has produced two animated episodes featuring Star Trek alum and Starship Farragut’s live-action cast that captures the essence of the 1970's Emmy-Award Winning Series from FILMATION.  Starship Farragut’s “For Want of a Nail” and “A Rock and a Hard Place” at the Wrath of Con Film Festival located in Panama City, Florida for 2008 and 2009 respectively. 

Farragut Films and Dracogen Strategic Investments supports both the productions of Starship Farragut and Star Trek Continues.

The History of the U.S.S. Farragut (NCC-1647)

2254 - James Kirk graduates from Starfleet Academy and is promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. His first assignment is aboard the Farragut, under the command of Captain Garrovick.  Kirk commands his first planetary survey mission to Tyree's Planet.  He befriends Tyree, leader of the hill people; a primitive tribe of hunter-gatherers living in huts and caves. The two are ceremonially made brothers.

2257 - The Farragut encounters a dangerous Dikironium cloud creature, or "Vampire Cloud", near the planet Tycho IV. The Vampire Cloud kills 200 members of the Farragut's crew, including Captain Garrovick. Lieutenant Kirk, due to his own hesitation, blames himself for the deaths . The Farragut returns home for refit and the Executive Officer, Commander Emilio Alvarez, is promoted to Captain, and is given command of the ship.

2263 - Kirk is promoted to the rank of Captain and assumes command of the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701) from Captain Christopher Pike. Pike is then promoted to Fleet Captain.

2263 - Captain Kirk embarks on a historic five-year mission of exploration.

2266 - Captain Alvarez retires from Starfleet after an incident that leaves him disabled. Commander John T. Carter, of the U.S.S. Potemkin (NCC-1657), is promoted to Captain and is assigned as the new Commanding Officer of the Farragut.

The shuttlecraft "Sagan" was named in honor of the late 20th century astronomer and Pulitzer Prize winning author, Doctor Carl Sagan, who pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence. Dr. Sagan made seminal contributions to the study of planetary atmospheres, planetary surfaces, the history of the Earth, and exobiology. He contributed to most of the unmanned missions that explored Earth's solar system.

The highlights of Sagan's career include the discovery of the high surface temperatures of the planet Venus, and solving the mysteries of what were believed to be "seasonal changes" to the planet Mars. He was among the first to hypothesize that Saturn's moon, Titan, and Jupiter's moon, Europa, may possess oceans, or lakes, making the them potentially habitable for life. Europa's subsurface ocean was later indirectly confirmed by the spacecraft Galileo. Sagan also helped solve the mystery of the reddish haze seen on Titan, revealing that it is composed of complex organic molecules constantly raining down to the moon's surface. He also speculated about life in Jupiter's clouds, given the planet's dense atmospheric composition, rich in organic molecules.

Sagan is best known, however, for his research on the possibilities of extraterrestrial life, including an experimental demonstration of the production of amino acids from basic chemicals by radiation. His research has been credited as having transformed planetary science.

The shuttlecraft "Lovell" was named in honor of American Astronaut James A. Lovell.  During NASA's Project Gemini flights, Lovell, aboard Gemini VII, participated in the first rendezvous of two manned maneuverable spacecraft and commanded Gemini XII.  During Project Apollo, he served as Command Module Pilot and Navigator aboard Apollo VIII - man's maiden voyage to the moon in December of 1968. Apollo VIII was the first manned spacecraft to be lifted into near-earth orbit by the Saturn V launch vehicle and became the first manned spacecraft to leave the Earth's gravitational influence.  Lovell completed his fourth mission as Commander of Apollo XIII in April of 1970, and became the first human to journey twice to the moon.
