CREW

We are a product of collaboration from some of the best indie talent in the world. People across the entire planet are helping to contribute elements to make Earth-Link Origins happen. This project has always been one of internet collaboration ever since its conception, and it is something that we pride ourselves on.

Most of our crew have worked on Star Trek fan productions or even professionally before working on Earth-Link Origins.
