Insightful documentary among distinguished nominees for ‘Best Television Presentation (10 Episodes or Less)’
LOS ANGELES, Calif.; March 14, 2012 —— Roddenberry Entertainment, the successor of the science fiction pioneer that brought television and film audiences Star Trek, announced today that Trek Nation was nominated by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films for a 2012 Saturn Award.
Lucasfilm recognized Roddenberry Entertainment and the success of Trek Nation by hosting private screenings of the film in the U.S. and abroad as part of its Speaker Series at the Letterman Digital Arts Center and Singapore facility.
Trek Nation debuted in November 2011 on SCIENCE to acclaimed reviews of Rod Roddenberry’s tribute to his father, Gene Roddenberry. Through exclusive footage and interviews with devoted fans, including George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane and many notable Star Trek alumni, Trek Nation chronicled a son’s journey to discover his father and the creation that helped define science fiction.
Roddenberry Entertainment intends to release Trek Nation digitally and on DVD with bonus features and additional content, but fans won’t have to wait for the DVD release to see never-before-seen content. Attendees of the annual WonderCon convention can get a sneak peek of Trek Nation’s bonus footage at the Roddenberry Presents panel discussion from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 18 in Room 208-AB.
“My hope is that Trek Nation will continue to communicate to audiences everywhere that anyone with passion, drive and faith in themselves can make the kind of impact on our world that Gene Roddenberry did,” said Executive Producer Rod Roddenberry.
Trek Nation is nominated for Best Presentation on Television (10 Episodes or Less) alongside Camelot, Falling Skies, Game of Thrones, Torchwood: Miracle Day and The Walking Dead.
The 38th Annual Saturn Awards will take place on Wed., June 20, in Burbank, Calif.
