    I’ve never been terribly interested in fan-made sequels to TOS and had never watched them. The clips/photos I’d been exposed to always looked kind of cheesy, and I didn’t feel I could ever get past the fact that it actors didn’t look exactly like the original cast.

    But when I saw this posted I thought “eh, what the heck, i’ll give it a try”. So this episode is the 1st fan-made Trek show I’ve ever watched.

    Wow! Are all the Star Trek:Continues this good?

    Sometimes the actor’s lack of physical similarity took me out of it a bit, but I was really impressed with how much the actors who play Kirk and Spock have really nailed the mannerisms and speech patterns of the originals. There was times when Kirk would his back or get in the mid- or background and you could almost swear it was Shatner. As an aside, does the actor who plays Kirk remind you of James Fassbender? He does to me.

    The irony is that the Abrams Trek has probably made me more open to accepting others in the roles. But while some of the Abrams actors may look more like their counterparts, I would much rather watch a show with these actors.

    I also thought the story was extremely good, could have easily passed for an original episode. And I agree, the job they did on the planet set was excellent.

    I’m definitely going to see if I can track down the other episodes. I would gladly buy these if they released them on blu-ray or DVD. (Hear that Paramount? More opportunities to milk the Star Trek cash cow)

    Has Vic - or anyone else closely associated with the production of this series - considered writing a “making of” book?

    Right now I’m reading Return to Tomorrow about the making of ST:TMP. I would think that a book documenting to creation of this series would be extremely interesting.

    I know that today everything is about “on-line” and I guess if I hunted around on the internet I could get a good chunk of the story. But i’m old-school and really enjoy having a hard copy book about this in hand.

    Yes! They are all "that good"! Go to startrekcontinues.com or search Star Trek Continues on YouTube for more eps, bloopers, and other fun stuff.

    That I cannot tell you. But there's a lot of behind the scenes stuff on YouTube now including bloopers, construction of the engineering set, and scoring of some of the episodes. There's also a set tour, and a number of panels Vic does at conventions explaining some behind the scenes stuff. And there's also their Facebook page.

    I just started catching up on the whole STC series and it convinces me even more that THIS is what should be on the air instead of ST:D.

    Loved seeing the return of Apollo in "Pilgrim of Eternity." Added bonus that they got Michael Forest to reprise the role and even having an explanation as to his advanced age. Loved the fact that they used Marina Sirtis as the computer voice.

    "Lolani" was a good standalone episodes and Fiona Vroom really made green makeup look good (gave me ideas of how Marvel really could put She-Hulk on the big screen). it was great to see Lou Ferrigno as the Orion slave trader and "Buck Rogers" alumni Erin Gray as Commodore Gray.

    "The Fairest of Them All" was a great (and logical) follow up to "Mirror Mirror" and should easily be a part of Star Trek canon. Again, kudos, for using another TNG alum, Michael Dorn, as the Empire computer voice. And Michelle Specht, despite her limited role in the episode, was the stuff of dreams!

    Can't wait to catch up on the rest of the episodes...

    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.

    This comment made me laugh considering Michele's scene was a bed scene! LOL!

    Hi! I got to talk to Vic live on a radio podcast last night and asked him about writing a book. He thought it was a brilliant idea! I hope he'll write one!
