View Streaming on Vimeo
View Streaming on YouTube : Part 1 Part 2

Hidden Frontier's journey into an original science-fiction universe begins with the release of Frontier Guard's first webisode.

Connor Blake was abducted in 1957. He was found frozen on a space Ark hundreds of years later. Now, he's joined the space force of the future, the Frontier Guard!

Each week a new 6-14 minute webisode of Frontier Guard will be released every Monday Night in the Hidden Frontier Chat and in wide release a day or two later.

The episodes are available streaming on Vimeo or in two parts on Youtube. The Frontier Guard YouTube channel also has 15 two-minute character vignettes available to watch that introduce all of the main and most of the supporting characters on the show. These are fun, in-universe, often humorous glimpses at each character and their back story.

A Special Donation Announcement from Rick Pike:

Now you can REALLY become part of the Hidden Frontier / Frontier Guard team!

In order to raise money for production costs for this almost continuous film process, Rob has authorized me to offer a special "Thank You" incentive for those who help us out and help finance production expenses.

We always try to recognize donors online, in the end credits, and through other means. Without all our donors, we just simply couldn't put on the shows. Everyone involved contributes time, money, food, and labor to make it happen. So they truly appreciate all donations that are made, no matter what the level.

I have 20 actual Frontier Guard patches to offer. Not copies, not replicas, these are the actual sewn cloth patches used on the costumes of our Frontier Guard cast. They are beautiful to look at, and definitely an item to have.

See Donation Announcement for more information.
