Sounds interesting. I have been meaning to check these out sometime. Can you post some links to some of the places to get episodes? In particular episodes that you liked?

Easily, far and away, the best one is the 'animated' Starship Farragut episodes.

The same group does a 'live action' version, which is...no better than the average fan production. Their 'animated' series stands out, though, because it completely nails DEAD ON the style of the original 'Star Trek animated series' episodes. I mean, their framing and animation are just about carbon copies. It's a perfect fit!

Of the 'live action' fan films, probably the most 'famous' of them is the 'New Voyages' series. Most notable, because they have a number of regulars from the TV series guest star and reprise their roles, including George Takei (Sulu) and Walter Koenig (Chekov). I wasn't particularly impressed with their productions, but YMMV.

Aurora Trek is an animated series that takes place in the original series time frame. Only four episodes so far with the fifth (maybe final) episode due out this summer.

You are not a trekkie if you do not pronounce it "trekker".

I always thought "Star Trek Exeter" was pretty decent for a fan production...



Unfortunately, there are only one and half episodes finished so far, but still, pretty cool.

That looks like something my kids would enjoy. I don't mean that as a slam.

EDIT: Though . . . can you tell me how "adult" it is? I'm looking at reviews, and I see references that suggest it's aimed at a decidedly grown-up audience.


There are some mature issues with the main character's background that could disturb preteens.

A lot going with Star Trek - Phase II/New Voyages - check out the wiki

including some notables:

They lost a Hugo nomination to Doctor Who's 'Blink' episode. And not just regulars but lots o' non-regulars too, including:

Walter Koenig Pavel Chekov "To Serve All My Days" Koenig played Chekov in the Original Series and subsequent films.

George Takei Hikaru Sulu "World Enough and Time" Takei played Sulu in the Original Series and subsequent films.

Grace Lee Whitney Janice Rand "World Enough and Time" Whitney reprises her TOS role of Janice Rand in the third episode, as an officer on Captain Sulu's ship, the USS Excelsior. (This connects to her appearances as an Excelsior crewmember in the movie Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Flashback.")

Denise Crosby Dr. Jenna Yar "Blood and Fire" Played the characters of Lieutenant Tasha Yar and Sela in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Also hosted/co-produced the films Trekkies and Trekkies 2. (Her character here has been referred to in promotional material for this episode as Tasha Yar's grandmother, and even goes so far as to refer to herself as Jenna Natasha Yar.)

Mary Linda Rapelye Ambassador Rayna Morgan "To Serve All My Days" Rapelye appeared as Irina Galliulin in TOS episode "The Way to Eden."

BarBara Luna Veronica/Alersa "In Harm's Way"; "Enemy: Starfleet!" BarBara Luna appeared as "the Captain's Woman" in TOS episode "Mirror, Mirror."

William Windom Commodore Matt Decker "In Harm's Way" William Windom reprises his role of Commodore Decker from nearly 40 years ago in TOS episode "The Doomsday Machine."

Malachi Throne Korogh (Kargh's father) and Commodore José Mendez (voice) "In Harm's Way" Throne played Commodore José Mendez in TOS episode "The Menagerie" and Romulan Senator Pardek in TNG episode "Unification."

Eddie Paskey Admiral Leslie "Come What May" Eddie Paskey plays the father of Lt. Leslie, an uncredited but frequent character he portrayed in the original series.[4]

John Winston Captain Matthew Jefferies "Come What May" John Winston played the transporter chief Lieutenant Kyle in the original series.[5] His character's name here pays homage to the real Matt Jeffries, who designed the original starship Enterprise.

http://www.hiddenfrontier.com/ = Horrible acting, gulp although some very nice externals of the starships.

http://www.startreknewvoyages.com/ = Pretty awful first episode, In Harm's Way, with the cast 'Kirk' looking more like an Elvis impersonator. laugh

Later episodes ('Kirk' gets a haircut) are as good as standard TOS episodes, for the most part. The acting is a cut below, but Takei and Koenig raise the bar some in their reprises, and the FX are pretty decent. I haven't seen the two part with Denise Crosby, or the latest effort. But I'll get to them soon.

It depends where you come from, here in Australia everything ends in an "ie" not "er", e.g. truckies, bikie, trekkie...

I think years ago I read/watched something that said something like Trekkies became Trekkers in the USA but I'm not Klingon to cultural (photon) canon too strongly.
