Hatch! Russ! Kyson! Unite for Blade of Honor

TV icons Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica), Tim Russ (Star Trek : Voyager) and James Kyson (Heroes) embark on a virtuoso homecoming to sci-fi TV with Blade of Honor.

The creative forces behind such science-fiction classics as Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, Star Trek:Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: New Voyages, Star Trek: Renegades, Star Trek: The Next Generation team to bring to the screen the next level in small screen space-set sci-fi entertainment!

A Kickstarter campaign has launched to fund the first three episodes of the sweeping sci-fi series, also starring Alison Haislip, Cirroc Lofton, Aron Eisenberg and Brandon Stacy, with a range of rewards including DVDs, autographed photos and producer credits up for grabs to those who contribute!

From writer-producer Mark Edward Lewis, Blade of Honor fixes on Arina Kartades (Haislip), a religious, headstrong, crack Alliance Navy Star Blade pilot in a war where the human Alliance is losing against the animal race, the Calinar. When Kartades discovers that her Statemandated religious upbringing was a lie, she embarks upon a forced quest to discover the true reasons behind the war. As her discoveries push her deeper into harm’s way, she must go against everything she believes in to fight a cloak and dagger rebellion and expose the galactic elite, the religious masters, and protect the ones she loves from the clutches of her own superiors and the combined military might of the Alliance and Calinar.

Says the Blade of Honor team, “We’ve got big plans for Blade of Honor, but like with anything worth doing, we must start with the first step. That first step is episode one. The minimum we need to shoot episode one is $30,000 – that includes, building sets, creating wardrobes, renting stages, paying/feeding cast and crew, etc.., not post-production/visual effects. We are confident however, that with this small amount of money, we can make one hell of an impressive sci-fi web series episode.

But it is our hope that we fund more than just this one episode of a webseries with this campaign. We need at least five episodes to tell this first story, this first mini-season. Because of that, we’ve got our sights set on some stretch goals as well.”

There are still 29 days to go in the campaign! Help get Blade of Honor it’s first season!

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.



 
 

 

Trailer for Steven Seagal’s China Salesman

I forgot this movie was even happening but I’m hoping Seagal is more than a glorified cameo and is one of the main stars; judging by the trailer it looks like his role may be small but it’s cool to see Mike Tyson pu...
