star trek hidden frontierWe nerds are a pretty creative bunch. When we're not watching hours and hours of Buffy reruns or adding Wordpress widgets to our blogs, we can usually be found doing some very inventive and nerdy stuff, like R2D2-ing a giant dome building or fashioning an At-At bunk bed out of plastic pipes and wood.

Some of us even express our nerdiness/fandom through filmmaking, like J.T. Tepnapa and Carlos Pedraza, the guys behind the fan film series Star Trek: Phase II and Star Trek: Hidden Frontier. Sure, these Trek fan flicks might not be as impressive as, say, that ultraviolent Mortal Kombat short that popped up the other day, but they're still a lot of fun to watch, and they sometimes feature themes, like living with AIDS and homosexuality, that cannon Trek rarely, if ever, touches on.

After years of writing, directing and starring in Star Trek fan films, Tepnapa and Pedraza are starting production on their first non-Trek inspired indie feature, Judas Kiss.
