    Holy Crap!! Just finished the episode and talk about a cliffhanger!!! I very nearly got the same goosebumps I got when I heard Locutus of Borg deliver his speech followed by Riker's "Fire." command. Bravo and well done to all involved, ironic that it should go out on a storyline I always wanted to see a follow-up to. Hopefully the conclusion won't be long in coming...!
    Oh then, what's this? Big flashy lighty thing, that's what brought me here! Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Not actually. But give me time. And a crayon.

    Absolutely incredible...for crying out loud why the heck doesn't Paramount just PAY these people already and put THIS show on TV?

    Every Trek fan in the world would watch this and love it. Any arguments about it looking outdated are ridiculous. My wife is a modern convert to classic Trek, and she LOVES it. We watch it every Friday night on BBC America.

    The conclusion will be out on Nov. 13th.

    Or at the very least, release it officially on DVD. But I'm optimistic that something good will happen. The fact that creator/Captain Kirk Vic Mignogna and his wife Michele Specht who plays McKennah were invited to the premiere of ST Discovery to me speaks volumes. It shows that CBS is acknowledging Star Trek Continues as part of the Star Trek family, and maybe one day it will officially be canon, (even though Rod Roddenberry does consider it canon).

    Paramount could make good with the world on this. Release it on DVD and donate 100% of the proceeds to disaster relief in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

    I've been saying for a long time Paramount needs to put Captain Vic and his crew on the payroll (I mean, seriously, how expensive could STC be, even adding money to pay the volunteers?) and get them on a 13-episode per season deal on Netflix. It really is like watching TOS's 4th season, and with a comparatively low budget (how much do you think they're spending on Discovery?) they would capture both fans and a better ROI with STC.

    Taking "Continues" away from us and leaving us Discovery is like taking a Big Mac out of a starving man's hands and replacing it with a turd sandwich.

    No thanks CBS, i'd rather starve

    Vic never intended to do this series past 13 eps anyway. All he really wanted to do is complete the 5 year mission, and leave the cast where the Motion Picture picked them up, (which is what the conclusion will do). 'Cos of all that stupid Axanar business, he wound up making 11 b/c they already raised the money before the guidelines came down. He promised CBS no more crowdfunding, so all they could do is finish up the series w/ 11 eps. But since they had an end goal in sight, CBS let them finish w/o following the guidelines. The last crowdfunding was for 3 eps, w/ a stretch goal of a planet set (which was used for Eps. 9 and 10). And just to give you an idea of cost, (according to Vic). In the 60s, Star Trek cost approx. $115.000 per ep to make. In today's terms, that's about $1 million. An ep of STC costs anywhere between $50.000 and $80.000 to make, and that's w/ flying the actors and crew to Jacksonville FL (most live in LA), feeding them, equipment rental, production materials, etc. But remember, the cast and crew shot all these eps, twice a year, for just over 5 years, w/o getting paid. This was done out of passion for the series, but they do have other jobs and lives to get back to now that shooting is over. All of them took vacation time to do this, (the woman who plays Lt. Palmer is a doctor, and got to play a role as a supporter of a Kickstarter, and just became part of the crew). It would be nice if CBS paid Vic to do this (his way, not w/ some corporate suit ruining everything), but he's an Anime voice actor, and does about 40 conventions a year. And right now, he's trying to figure out what to do w/ the sets, b/c he doesn't want to see them dismantled or destroyed. He cannot offer tours, b/c James Cawley of Star Trek New Voyages got a license from CBS to give tours once the guidelines came down.
