HOLLYWOOD - If you are a fan of the Star Trek Universe, you won't want to miss the science fiction comedy by Archangel LA LLC, Unbelievable!!!!!, which stars 40 actors & guest star actors from the
Star Trek franchise including Star Trek: the Original Series,
Star Trek: Next Generation, Star Trek Voyager, Star Trek Deep Space Nine and the many
Star Trek movies.
Four astronauts are sent on a rescue mission to the moon to find out what happened to two missing astronauts sent to the moon on a previous mission, as the two astronauts have not been heard from for several days. When the rescue team lands, the individuals they meet on the moon are not who they appear to be, and these individuals try to kill them using every form of deception. The astronaut team manages to survive and head back to earth only to find that Martians have taken over the earth and transformed the population into a variant life-form.
The Martians' plan is to rid the Earth of what is left of humanity. The astronauts end up fighting hilarious battles with the aliens until they discover a way to get rid of the invaders and take back the planet. The star of the film is a puppet named Kirk Stillwood, created by the Chiodo Brothers, who created the puppets for Team America, World Police. Kirk Stillwood is voiced by the actor Kevin Carlson. If you have seen the trailer for the movie, you can see Kirk Stillwood gets himself involved in many humorous situations, some are pretty crazy. The production of this movie is reminiscent of 1950's and 1960's science fiction. The wooden dialogue, makeshift quality props and costumes with cheesy special effects are actually part of the charm of the movie. It is definitely for today's modern audience. The movie has a runtime of 111 minutes. Release date is yet to be determined.
The Premiere of Unbelievable!!!!! was held at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatre located at 6925 Hollywood Blvd, in Hollywood, CA. A husband and wife team Steven Fawcette and Angelique Fawcette,
who have been a fan of the Star Trek Universe for years, produced, directed and wrote this movie. The premiere was one day before the 50th Anniversary of the first episode airing on CBS. At the end of the screening, the actors attended a party at Ohm to countdown to the infamous day.

I met a few of these talented actors in the red carpet that evening. All of them had a great time and were excited about the premiere. Steven Fawcette and Angelique Fawcette talked about production of the movie and their dream to have all of these hand picked Star Trek actors they have admired for this movie. Angelique actually stars in the movie, playing several roles as Lynn Hastings, Afro Agent, Nurse Ury, and Don Gornelius Jr
. Nichelle Nichols, dressed in a beautiful gown, showed off her timeless, youthful beauty, with her regal persona as charismatic as when she first starred on Star Trek, the Original Series. She was grateful for the fans who have followed her over the years, and felt excited about being a co-producer of this funny comedy.
Celeste Yarnall walked the red carpet as fans paid homage to her character on Star Trek, the Original Series, as she rewarded them by showing off a scarf with Yeoman Martha Landon woven into the design. Garrett Wang from Star Trek Voyager has the role of Dr. Charles Hunter in Unbelievable!!!!!. He was excited about the premiere giving the audience the Vulcan salute in his tuxedo suit. Dina Meyer (CW Birds of Prey, Starship Troopers, Star Trek Nemesis) talked with fans and spoke with them about her role in the movie. She is actually very funny with a good sense of humor. Sean Kenney was the actor who played the infamous Captain Pike on Star Trek the Original Series in the episode "The Menagerie." He joined his fellow Star Trek alumni with his lovely wife.
Manu Intiraymi known on Star Trek Voyager as Icheb and on the CW show One Tree Hill as Billy, walked the carpet with his wife reuniting with many of the past cast members from Voyager. Connor Trinneer from Star Trek Enterprise has the part of Capt. Jack Youngblood in Unbelievable!!!!!. He spoke about his experience on the film, and shared a tidbit about his character. Michael Madsen. known for his work in Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs and The Hateful Eight is President Ben Dover of the United States. Madsen said he had always wanted to have a role in a comedy, and when this came up, he thought it would be fun.
Brenda Bakke (Star Trek Next Generation, American Gothic), did several interviews demonstrating she can still steal a scene. Patti Yasutake , actress from Star Trek First Contact and the TV show Star Trek The Next Generation, talked about how similar her role in Unbelievable!!!!! is with her role on Star Trek Next Generation as she plays Dr. Beverly Krasher in the movie. Katarina Van Derham who previously appeared on the HBO hit show Entourage looked sexy and beautiful as she flirted with all the guys who stopped dead in their tracks when she came by.
Dominic Keating made me laugh as he spoke about his work on Star Trek Enterprise and shared set stories about working on Unbelievable!!!!! Would you believe his character's name is Paramedic Hacky? Tim Russ from Star Trek Voyager posed for many selfies as he talked about being Dr. Robert Schmitt and about his time on Voyager. Chase Masterson from Star Trek Deep Space made quite the beautiful entrance when she showed up late, owning the red carpet giving us the last farewell before the movie started.
Though I didn't get to see the film, you could tell the screening was a huge success as the actors and fans came out of the movie entertained and laughing about the movie. If you are a fan of any of the Star Trek series or movies, this is the movie for you. It pokes fun at the science fiction genre, while giving you a taste of your favorite Star Trek actors.
