Produced by actor, director, and musician Vic Mignona, the show is an exact recreation of the original 1960s program. Even the sets were built from the blueprints of the original series. The actors are of course contemporary and Mignona plays Captain Kirk.
“My goal was to make something that sounded and looked and felt as much as the original series as possible” said Mignonia. His motivation was to “give the original series the ending it never had” since it was cancelled after three seasons–two years short of its five-year mission.
