Starbase Studios – ON THE MOVE Pt 2 – With Dan Reynolds

Starbase Studios moving to its new home in Harrison Arkansas, I wanted to touch base with one of the new owners Dan about how things are progressing. I sent him a quick IM on Facebook and asked if he wanted to write a guest piece to update everyone.

So I now hand over to Dan for him to fill you in on what’s been going on at the studios new home.


Initially, when I stepped on and offered my TV studio space as the new home for Starbase Studios, I had no inkling that the day we were loading up the trucks in Oklahoma City that I’d get a call offering to by my building. Which, by the way, had been on the market for 7 years. I was in a compromising position for sure. But, as divine luck would have it, I found a much bigger facility close to my hometown of Harrison, AR and the remaining sets, including the bridge are now housed and erected In the new building.


Glen came down and early Friday morning he and I did the impossible and erected the entire upper, lower consoles, turbo lift section, railing, view screen and captain’s helm and navigation console in just 2 days.

From communications to the end of stocks station.

The upper console work begins. This part was a challenge. For those who know the bridge construction, nothing is square and no piece will stand without falling over.

End of Friday. The captain’s island, turbolift, railing and view screen set for Saturday

Saturday morning starting with the overhanging facade. Forgot about this. Amazingly this took a very long time to complete. Nothing seemed to want to fit although every piece was numbered.

You can see the facade with the iconic red/orange stripe above each console.

Finished and leaving Saturday night. Glen Wolfe and I are tired but exuberant.

And as the last light is turned off, this was so fitting of our last photograph of why we do what we do and why the love of Star Trek continues day after day after day.
