The Helena Chronicles Season 2 premiere episode "The Minstrel Boy" is now in wide release. The episode kicks of an exciting sophmore season for the show and sees the Helena pursued by Starfleet and other interests.

"Minstrel" was directed by David O'Neill with a heart-pounding score by Hetoreyn.

The episode can be downloaded from our servers along with bloopers here. We also have a review thread on our forums here.

Filming continues on Helena's 2nd and 3rd episodes of season 2. We're hoping to wrap "Red Sky at Morn" in early April for a release sometime in late April or May. Jennifer Cole is helming 2.02 while Beo Fraser directs 2.03, the season finale.

The episodes are being filmed together to ease scheduling issues.

Star Trek: Odyssey's season 2 premiere "On the Knees of the Gods" has wrapped and is having the finishing touches put on its score by composer Andrew Smith.

A preview is available on our website here.

Work continues on the other five episodes set for the shows sophmore season.

Progress continues on HFP's first original science-fiction show, Frontier Guard. New starships are being created every day in a new feature on our forums, "Frontier Guard Shipyards" where you can see the design through to completion of some of the ships that will star in the new show. (Forum Link)

Casting has begun on the project and announcements will be made as cast are confirmed. We are still on the lookout for more help with our CGI sets, prop makers and other talented individuals interested in getting in on the ground floor of a project we hope to someday see on the Sci-fi Channel!

Even if you're not local, all are encouraged to help out by contacting rpike [at] hiddenfrontier [dot] com. Very soon we will be in need of Home Depot gift cards as we start to build set pieces for the show.
