ST: Defiant in 2005
Website ; Alternate Website ; Forum
Formed in late August of 2004, Jeffrey Bridges along with a few close friends and family members, formed Pendant Productions, an audio production group dedicated to making radio dramas like the old radio serials of the '30s and '40s.
Their first project was based around "Star Trek: Defiant" (ST:D), a text based story list that he had started over nine years previously (which is still around, though it's pretty quiet these days). Jeff started the Audio Drama series at the request of several group members. Finding enough sound effects and a decent audio-mixing program, he started the project at Quantum Realities and it's still going.
Defiant moves rather slowly, production-wise, because it is more for the entertainment of the original group than anything else, and, to quote Jeff, "it's important to us that everyone be able to individually voice the characters that they created more than a decade ago."
As with its cousin, Darker Projects, Pendant Productions have branched out. Inspired by the old radio serials from the 1940s they have ongoing serials for Superman (11 episodes on line already!), Batman and Wonder Woman. They are also producing a feature-length James Bond adventure as well as two original sci-fi serial concepts in development and plans for an Indiana Jones adventure and a follow-up to the James Bond feature. They are even looking into adding web-comics to their repertoire.
