Fan Film: Star Trek Continues

The fan-made web series Star Trek Continues, directed by Vic Mignogna, picks up of story of the crew of the Enterprise immediately after the end of the original series.  The cast does an admirable job capturing the spirit of the original series and an even better job emulating the look of the series. It's a jarring reminder of just how far consumer-grade technology has come when hobbyists can re-create the experience of what was a cutting-edge network series this well.

This episode, "Pilgrim of Eternity," was written by Mignogna, Steve Frattarola, and Jack TreviƱo, and follows up the original Star Trek episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?" In fact, Michael Forest reprises his original series role as Apollo. And there are a few more surprises in this episode, including a very special guest star. Also, be sure to listen closely to the ship's computer.

In this episode, the crew encounters a troubled Orion slave girl—but can they rescue her without causing an interstellar incident?
