Hidden Frontier Productions (U.S.A) and Star Trek Grissom productions (Ireland) are delighted to announce the release of the 3rd episode of their 23rd century adventure -Star Trek: Grissom - ‘The Stars my Destination’. The episode will launch on the Hidden Frontier and Star Trek Grissom websites on January 23rd 2012 and thereafter on iTunes as a podcast.

In this exciting hour long episode the forces of the Tholian assembly have noted the low-level gamma explosion at Mutara, and with their incessant need to acquire new technology, see any Starfleet vessel as a means to information. A Tholian attack leaves Captain J.T. Esteban out of the game, and leads to another crew death. With time running out for Grissom, it is up to Commander Stephanie Ottair to show that she has what it takes to repel rampaging Tholian boarding parties.

This installment has the U.S.S. Grissom back enroute to the Genesis Planet, but are detoured when answering a priority Federation distress signal. Arriving at the Alcyone system, the Grissom finds itself involved with one of the Federation's most feared diseases. As the crew decides the limits of humanitarian assistance and mercy, the fate of an entire world lies in the balance. Join the crew as they wrestle with personal fears, tests of honor, and an exploration of the meaning of mercy and salvation. What are these limits? And how does one know what is the honorable, merciful course of action when all roads seem to lead to disaster on a planetary scale? Do the needs of the many truly outrank the needs of the few?

Prose Chapter 7 Releases March 28th 2010

Star Trek: Grissom to Release Chapter 7 on March 28 Star Trek: Grissom, the acclaimed written and audio program 23rd Century Star Trek fan series, announces the pending release of its latest and most exciting prose adventure yet... Chapter 7: "One Moment of Humanity," written by Sean P. Teeling and plotted by Nick Cook. This written chapter will be released on the Grissom website on Sunday, March 28, 2010 at

Synopsis: Following on from the revelation of the involvement of the Tholians in the previous chapter, this installment has the Romulan Star Empire learning of all the recent activity and mysterious goings on in the Mutara sector. The T'al Shiar employ an elaborate plot, and the services of Star Trek's infamous intergalactic trader, Cyrano Jones, to steal the highly classified "Genesis Project" data from the U.S.S. Grissom. Commander Stephanie Ottair finds herself and her landing party in the middle of the Romulan gambit, while Grissom is menaced by an Orion Privateer. Is everything as it seems, or is it all just part of a greater plot? You' ll also be introduced to the deliciously deadly Klingon femme fatale from Star Trek: III, Lady Valkris, as she becomes entwined in the Grissom's final missions, and ultimately, its fate.

This one has everything... action, danger, intrigue, and, of course, the ongoing development of the Chattman/Aabin relationship. Don't miss it! Chapter 7 (One Moment of Humanity) will be serialized this spring to become Star Trek: Grissom Audio Episode #3, and will feature Star Trek fan series alumni Nick Cook (Star Trek Intrepid, Star Trek Odyssey, Operation Beta Shield) as the irascible Cyrano Jones.

Valiant crew of the Grissom... Almost a year after the planned release, audio episode 3 is on it's way!


'Star Trek Grissom is back!'

Comment by USS PENDRAGON on January 2, 2011 at 9:31am

A message from our glorious leader...


The planned release of Star Trek Grissom 103, will now not take place on Jan 3rd. This is due to both myself and Bodo Hartwig being mega busy in November/December with other Trek (Angeles, Intrepid)  and comic related (The Wren) projects. All projects going extremely well! 

FEAR NOT, the episode will launch February coming.This will allow time for Bodo Hartwig to finish weaving his magic with the wonderful performances of our 26 strong international ensemble cast, and for our public relations guru Rick Pike to get us promoted to the fan community.  Andrew Foster has already laid down the episode art, which you may have seen on the Star Trek Grissom FB page! Do check it out!

Watch the Star Trek Grissom website forums, HFP, Lexington, and Intrepid forums for more details of the release, and continue to check out our pages on Face Book and Trekspace pages where we will post updates also

Just a note to all our glorious followers.... Prose Part 7 "One Moment of Humanity" is avaliable to download, and Audio Episode 3 is being recorded as we speak somewhere on this very planet.

Good times! ;)
Comment by Rick on February 7, 2010 at 7:39pm
Sorry - i sent out a message but realized I should have typed it in here instead.

A message from Rick to all members of Star Trek: Grissom on TREKSPACE! Hi Grissom folks. Here's my comments on the wonderful Episode 2: The Price of Virtue, that was just released. I thought it was magnificient! I was so impressed with how the written chapter story was turned into a script that was both well-paced, exciting, and entirely believeable. the depth and almost 3-D sound effects and music really ramped up the mental picture I had while listening. Although I have a small part in the series, I will try to be objective. I was most impressed by all of the actors, but several of them were especially appreciated by me this time:

1) Dr. Saunders (Will Dees). His voice, accent and emotion was consistent throughout and always exactly the right level of intensity for each of his scenes. The shuttlecraft scene where he's hitting on all the female Starfleet personnel made me laugh. (Will's a friend, but I truly am being honest on this -- I thought his performance was the standout performance in this episode).

2) Chattman (David Robertson). David Robertson assumed this role and truly ran with it. I thought his performance conveyed all the anguish and confusion that would be expected from someone placed into his position. I liked his moments of frustrations and sputtering anger, too. Real passion and feeling came through.

3) Dr. Liebmann (Michael Liebmann). I've described poor, misunderstood, underappreciated Dr. Liebmann as the "Doctor Smith from Lost-in-Space" of Grissom. He's very smart, but has such an ego and selfishness that he's so enjoyable to follow. Even when shown to be oblivious to harbouring an agent, he turns that around and plays it indignant. The actor brings exactly the right tone that I want to hear to this character. Very enjoyable.

4) M'Pursong (Grainne Ahearn). Ah, the sexy, sultry, deliciously treacherous M'Pursong. Can anyone hear her voice and not envision this feline vixen traitor? (okay, I mixed some metaphors there). But really, she was a joy to listen to in her scenes. Will we see her again? I hope so!

5) Lt. Sato (Grainne Ahearn). Who wouldn't want to work with the efficient, dryly witty, and no-nonsense Lt. Sato. Grainne's performance of her was excellent. Just the right level of efficiency and sarcasm so we appreciated her, and didn't dislike her. It's amazing that the interaction between Grainne and Will when recording was almost 5,000 miles, and done separately. Yet another testament to Bodo's excellent sound auditing skills!

6) Vindi S'raazh (Dallas Teague Snider). I love the Andorian Chief Medical Officer. Although it is sometimes hard to imagine her as a blue-skinned, cool Andorian. She has that honey sweet voice and sense of righteousness in her actions that just makes you wanna walk her dog, or take her laundry to the cleaners (besides being a brilliant physician/researcher).

As I said, I think the entire cast did a really good job, but I wanted to note what I thought were, for me, the most enjoyable characters and performances.

-- Rick Pike
Comment by Realist1953 on February 6, 2010 at 6:10pm
Like Adm. T'Moya, perhaps I am my worst critic. While I thought my performance was good overall, I did hear several times where I was running out of air at the end of a line; also a couple times it (watch punctuation) was. saying. nearly every. word. like a. separate . sentence. It just didn't flow out as evenly as I would have liked - strong start, average finish. We could 'chalk it up to the translator', but I know better. I hope that the next rime will sound better, as another character, since I won't have to talk backwards to make the voice. (wait 'till you hear Ri'tarxx doing Wille Nelson and with his insectoid buddy, Mos-Q as Julio Engiesias (sp?) doing "to all the girls I've loved before"),

I am EXTREMELY pleased with the sound effects and music! Wish I had even half the talent required to come up with such original music! WELL DONE!

And several other people also had their lines down pat, and they flowed like natural language.
Highlights the stood out -
Murphy - very good, natural-sounding.
M’Purrsong - I liked the tongue-roll put into the dialog. I assume that it was “without translator”.

The rest, well done, in-character, smooth.
Comment by Renda C./ Admiral T'Moya on February 3, 2010 at 5:44am
Okay listened to episode 2! And I am not commenting on my attempt for the series since that would seem self-serving or maybe since I am my own worst critic,lol,perhaps self-bruising rotfl.

The Special effects are excellent,music beautiful as always,and I find myself waiting with bated-breath for Muggle ;)

Lt. Saavik,dreaming about her David ;)
Comment by StarFleet Medical on November 1, 2009 at 11:24am
Happy to have you on the team Charlie! Your Ri'tarxx is nifty!
Comment by Realist1953 on October 27, 2009 at 2:24pm
UNHAPPY -- Ri'tarxx is not in Chap 6 --- HOW COULD THIS BE???????
[[ kidding ]]
Oh well - have to settle for a spot in STP2 -- someday [sob sob ] - just helped out on the set again a few weeks ago.

Read the new prose --- really like the addition of the pictures. Adds a lot for those like me without a memorized schematic of the ship. Good Deal !!! And the other pics too!

My THANKS also being allowed a small part in this story.
