Sci-fi trio join the cast of ambitious new Kickstarter web series

Sci-fi TV favourites Richard Hatch, Tim Russ, and James Kyson have teamed up for a new series.
The trio, who appeared in Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: New Voyages, Star Trek: Renegades, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Heroes, will be the stars of a new project, titled Blade of Honor.
A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to cover the costs of filming the first three episodes of the new sci-fi series, which will also feature Alison Haislip, Cirroc Lofton, Aron Eisenberg, and Brandon Stacy.
Mark Edward Lewis’ new project centres on Haislip’s character Arina Kartades, a “headstrong, crack Alliance Navy Star Blade pilot” as she fights to make sense of a war between the “human Alliance” and the animal race, “the Calinar”.
“When Kartades discovers that her state-mandated religious upbringing was a lie, she embarks upon a forced quest to discover the true reasons behind the war,” a press release reads. “As her discoveries push her deeper into harm’s way, she must go against everything she believes in to fight a cloak and dagger rebellion and expose the galactic elite, the religious masters, and protect the ones she loves from the clutches of her own superiors and the combined military might of the Alliance and Calinar.”
Lewis and the brains behind the series need $30,000 (£20,800) to shoot episode one.
“That includes building sets, creating wardrobes, renting stages, paying/feeding cast and crew, etc.., not post-production/visual effects,” the release continues. “We are confident, however, that with this small amount of money, we can make one hell of an impressive sci-fi web series episode.”
