Re: Star Trek is coming back.....

yeah all they need ot figure out is how to build some Q.E. communicators and energy shielding and they'll probably figure out the warp drive along the way, but I doubt the matter transporters will happen in the next 200 years if ever /

Re: Star Trek is coming back.....

Of course as any Trek fan would tell you it hasn't stopped being made.
Star Trek New Voyages - the continuance of Captain Kirk's five year mission is up to episode nine with a new episode due soon.
They may not be "official" but apart from the first two are quite entertaining.
Even having original Trek stars appearing in them as their old characters.

Re: Star Trek is coming back.....

Boldly continuing where Paramount Executives wouldn't go before, Star Trek Continues:
https://www.youtube.com/user/StarTrekContinues
Tried to watch "New Voyages" from the beginning several years ago, but it felt like it was too amateurish, the "Continues" lot (which includes Grant Imahara of Mythbusters, and son of Scotty, Chris Doohan) on the other hand are doing pretty well, not only producing some excellent episodes that fit right in with TOS, but even managing to expand the sets they have (which I believe the New Voyages lot use too) to include new ones such as Engineering which has been missing for as long as the fan-built sets have existed... Smiley
Whether or not the officially made new series will attract traditional trekkies, who knows, but I'm not hedging my bets on it being popular after the abrahms trainwrecks...

The first episode tries to have every sort of Trek background music and the second does the same for effects. But they do get a lot better. Especially Kirk's hair which was pinched from Fonzy at the start. Now they have a new actor playing Kirk who looks much more the part.

Re: Star Trek is coming back.....

I think the first three episodes of New Voyages is as far as I got (I think I dropped off when they seemed to drop off the web too), but the Continues series, that's had me hooked from the outset, it just felt "right" from the beginning, though the changing actors playing McCoy was confusing, but, something that goes on with fan-shows... Grin
Not sure about the fella playing Spock though...

The slim one?
He was replaced by a more "spock" like actor a few episodes on.

Re: Star Trek is coming back.....

He looks similar to the other one in that they just don't look "Spockish" enough.
Hard to believe but I don't think I've seen those. They look very good.
Just downloaded them so I'll watch them later.

Re: Star Trek is coming back.....

I've been 100% impressed with the Continues series, the first episode even brought a tear to my eye it was just that good... Smiley
