Episode 2 from the "Star Trek: Continues" group is now up to enjoy!  Take a look at their latest fan film effort.

I have been critical of most of these and although I enjoyed the first episode they did, I felt Vic was trying to hard to channel Shatner and it was distracting. But he has dialed it down and everyone else is upping their game. Well done!

A little preachy in this episode but very well done. I think they pretty well nailed the feel of TOS with set design, lighting and cinematography. The music was also very appropriate for the scenes. Vic's performance was much better this time out and I loved the guest appearance. I think if they keep this up they will surpass New Voyages in fan film storytelling.

I'll check this one out - especially since you mentioned that Erin Gray makes an appearance.

They really did a great job with some of the little moments if humor and banter. Really like the new Dr. McKenna and her relationship with Kirk.

Probably easy to play since Vic & Michelle are engaged in real life.

They just hit 85% of their marks in this collectively. Such a vast improvement over their first effort, which really struggled in the performances. Hate to say it because I like him personally, but Daniel Logan was a dud. And the guy from Myth Busters who plays Sulu need some more polish. But both guest stars were solid and Michelle was charming.

It's only their second episode and only some of them are professional actors.  But they are doing a really great job at creating the vibe of TOS.  Really enjoying these efforts.

Rico, do you think it was a conscious choice

. I also really liked Erin Grey's part. It's neat to see these fan films bring in veteran actors. Apparently they have raised enough money from fan support to produce another three episodes. I just hope it doesn't take them another whole year to release the next one.

I'm working out an interview right now with one of the cast to learn more.

AWESOME! I want to be in a fan film! I'm definitely checking this out, especially since two of the most picky geeks I have EVER "known" have given it their approval. ;) :D
