STAR TREK EXETER

Never underestimate the power and drive of Star Trek fans. Sure, you'll see an impressive (most impressive) fanmade STAR WARS film here and there. But Trekkies will go beyond the normal obessessed-nerd mark and boldly go... well, you get the idea. Case in point are the fine folks who produce their own old school STAR TREK episodes! Set during the same timeframe as the original Trek, this "show" documents the adventures of the starship EXETER and crew! Once you get beyond the "whoa, hardcore nerds" aspect, the show is really quite fun and impressive for fanmade fare. It looks and feels very similar to the old 60s show. Even the fx are on par than the original. They don't appear to be trying to modernize the tone at all, which is nice. (Atleast that's how I took it. Maybe they were trying really hard to make the fx rock?) So far it looks like they have 2 completed episodes, which you can view/download for free here. Check it out sometime (ie NOW!!!!). If you're a Trek fan, you'll love em. Otherwise, you'll either dig em or scoff with frightening laughter. Either way, its entertaining!

Space.

Endless.

Silent.

Waiting.

The Klingons.... price of admission right there, man.

I was really impressed with the production values and FX on the second story they've done,really captures the feel of Trek,a hell of a lot better than DS9,Voyager or Enterprise to be sure !

Does anyone know what happened to the starshipexeter website? They did not have the last part of the current episode done yet, but now the website is gone and so is the United Worlds website Dennis Bailey ran.
