Someone Conned "The Con of Wraith" Out Of Filming Equipment... And How You Can Help

As I'm sure many of you know, our friend and Trek historian, Larry Nemecek, is in mid-stream making his new documentary The Con of Wrath. Well, a little misfortune befell the "Wrath" crew while on a shoot in Houston. Larry and his team were busy gathering some fantastic footage from an Ultimate Fantasy survivor in the wee hours of the morning, and in between load up trips 15 feet from the front door, someone swiped a bag containing an integral part of the whole documentary process... the unique specialty camera lens that is the look and feel of the whole sha-bang! Not only does this shutter The Con of Wrath field shooting for the time being, but it also stunts the growth of several other indie projects. I'll let The Con of Wrath's director of photography Neal Hallford explain.

Check Out The First Official Trailer For Larry Nemecek's "The Con Of Wrath"

Our good friend and Trek aficionado Larry Nemecek has just released a brand new trailer for his upcoming documentary, The Con of Wrath. Breaking the production announcement back in May, Larry's new doc will focus on the infamous 1982 "Ultimate Fantasy" convention that almost ended in failure. The new film is described as an inside look at a 1982 Star Trek Convention that made history of its own. The new trailer, that was previewed at San Diego Comic-con, & Vegas Khhaaan!, features clips of Wrath of Khan producer Harve Bennett & Trek star Walter Koenig.

More about The Con of Wrath: It was supposed to be the granddaddy of all Star Trek conventions, a glitzy rock concert of an event planned to truly go where none had gone before—complete with laser shows, orchestral oomph and a revolving stage in Houston’s NBA-sized arena. Instead, fans got the mother of all meltdowns—and, numbering in the hundreds, rather than thousands, gave it the nickname that itself was a takeoff on “The Wrath of Khan,” the hit Star Trek movie sequel released only days before.
