Star Trek Continues

Now this is just about as cool as can be. Star Trek Continues is a fan-supported effort to finish off the last two years of the original five-year mission. They've got a full episode out, and it's pretty darn good.

Episode One: Pilgrim of Eternity with Michael Forrest returning as the Greek god Apollo.

They're clearly amateurs but the attention to detail in the sets, costumes, music, and even lighting is incredible. It's a stunning re-creation of the original series right down to the cheesy engineering tools, nonsensical technobabble, and sixties-era bridge consoles. If you're a fan of classic Trek it's well worth an hour of your time to watch this. Southern Man notes that Vic Mignogna's voice and mannerism are more Captain Archer than Captain Kirk and applauds Chris Doohan's portrayal of Mr. Scott as a fine tribute to his father's work.
