New Episode of “Engage: The Official Star Trek™ Podcast” Discusses The Fan Film Guidelines


On the newest episode of Engage: The Official Star Trek™ Podcast, host Jordan Hoffman welcomes John Van Citters of CBS. They discuss the new Star Trek fan film guidelines issued last week by CBS and Paramount Pictures, with Hoffman asking questions posed by fans and the two tackling individual points of the guidelines, providing tremendous insight into the process. John Van Citters also discusses his lifelong love of all things Star Trek!

“I thought it was important to give John Van Citters an opportunity not only to clarify some of the guidelines, but to let him explain the rationale behind them,” Hoffman told “There has been a lot of speculation about this process. No doubt there is a period of adjustment up ahead, but I came away from this conversation with a much clearer understanding, as well as enthusiasm for what kinds of fan films await in the future.”
