Brickfilms Wiki

Star Trek: Dawn[1] (German: Star Trek: Morgendämmerung) is a 2006 stand-alone trailer Star Trek brickfilm and community project by the community of BrickBoard, coordinated by Mario Baumgartner.[2] It was the first community project to be completed on BrickBoard and was created following a request from Janus TV for a brickfilm to be aired as part of the promotion for a special on the 40th anniversary of Star Trek on the channel kabel eins.[3]

On August 7, 2006, Janus TV representative Daniel Farwick posted a thread on BrickBoard explaining that he wished to include a feature on brickfilms in a show that would be airing before reruns of the original Star Trek series, and so he was looking for either an existing German Star Trek brickfilm or somebody who was working on one to include, but preferably a new project. Mario Baumgartner and Pinus "Fenrir" Hauser took interest and each began discussing how long it would take them to produce such a film. Baumgartner suggested that it would be easiest to produce a stand-alone trailer, and put forth the idea that he and Hauser could make it as a co-production. Site admin Felix C. then suggested that the film could be created as a community project, and Baumgartner agreed to the idea.[5] Daniel Farwick also requested making-of material and brickfilmers to interview and gave a deadline of August 31, meaning the community had less than a month to get the film together. Site admin Cornelius Koch created a new sub-forum for community project planning.[6][7]

On August 9, Pinus Hauser posted a poll to ask which Star Trek series the project should be based on, and The Original Series and The Next Generation received an almost equally high vote.[8][9] Work began on story and sets,[10][11] and Markus "mipkr" Propach offered to design a website for the project.[12][13][14][15] Pinus Hauser, Alexander "Dead-Eye" Injac and Jonathan "Feuerfuchs" Denecke were interviewed for the program. The feature including the film aired on TV on October 2.[16][17] The film received attention on the internet on multiple film and Star Trek forums.[18]
