Excelsior Ball III was held June 6-8th in Los Angeles and an amazing time was had by all!

From panels, to the film shoots, to the social time by the hotel piano, EB III has become a fond memory for cast, crew and fans alike. Highlights of the event were a Saturday night dinner, sneak peeks at upcoming fan-films and other productions and side trips to LA area attractions.

More experiences from the ball are on the Hidden Frontier Forums and photos will be added soon.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this event such a success!

"Operation Beta Shield", the feature that will lead into the Federation One mini-series has wrapped after a massive three day shoot. The film is now in post production and will be off to composer David Beukes to score soon.

The final Beta Shield shoot also kicked off filming on the Federation One series pilot episode, "Unity". Fans that joined us for Excelsior Ball got a chance to participate in the filming of both projects.

With Operation Beta Shield now in post production, the first preview for the film has been released. You can download it from our download mirrors or view on Youtube. The preview introduces us to the state of the Alpha and Beta quadrants after the Archien invasion shown in the Star Trek: Odyssey pilot "Iliad".

Fear of another invasion by the mysterious Archien Empire from the Andromeda Galaxy is running high. In order to setup a line of defense against impending invasion, a shield of allied power must be forged in the Beta Quadrant. Can the allies work together in defense of the Beta Quadrant or will old hostilities re-emerge and shatter the chances for peace and co-operation ?

Summer is shaping up to be a very busy time at Hidden Frontier Productions. Production on Federation One, "Unity" continues through July while concurrent production on Helena Chronicles Season 1 finale, "The Letter of the Law" begins on June 14th. Midway through the summer we also begin Odyssey's Season finale, "Keepers of the Wind".

We premiered our original series trailers at Excelsior Ball and will be announcing more details about the show and posting the trailers soon. This marks the first time we've teamed up to create a non-Trek science fiction project and we're very excited about it!

It's going to be an incredible summer! Stay tuned!
