Alec Peters
Creator and "Garth of Izar"


The creator of the Axanar project, Alec is known as one of Star Trek’s biggest fans, and one who honors the canon of the beloved franchise through his visionary film “Prelude to Axanar”.

Alec is the epitome of someone who discovers their calling and succeeds in pursuing it. An attorney by training, Alec coached an NCAA Championship volleyball team at USC and with the US National team.  He has started five companies earning him an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2003. Alec has written the “Star Trek Prop, Costume & Auction Blog” (startrekprops.com) since 2006, and is one of the foremost experts on collecting screen used Star Trek props & costumes. In 2008 he created Propworx, which held the Battlestar Galactica Prop Auctions, considered by many the finest prop & costume auctions ever, followed by studio sanctioned auctions for Stargate, Star Trek, Iron Man I & II and the Kevin Smith auction.

“Prelude to Axanar” has won 46 film festival awards around the world and Alec is not only the creator, but writer, producer and actor, portraying legendary Starfleet Captain Garth of Izar. Alec first appeared as Garth in the Star Trek Phase II episode “Origins”. With two more episodes of “The Four Years War” in pre-production, “Axanar” will explore the legend of the man who Captain Kirk considered his personal hero, and the famous Battle of Axanar.
