I haven't watched any of it yet because I want to wait for the higher quality downloadable version, but I thought some here might like to watch this now.

Wow, thank a lot Beastball! It's nice to know that they're still at it. I hadn't heard anything from the New Voyages folks in a while (or bothered to check them out for that matter). I haven't watched any of this yet, but am looking forward to it!

 Re: Star Trek: Phase II
Here's an update on what the Phase II folks are working on...

The next episode to be released is "The Child," which was written for the original Phase II by Jon Povill (and was later turned into a TNG episode of the same name). The episode has been reworked by Povill to fit with the new Phase II, now with a new Deltan crewmember (not Ilia) who will give birth to a mysterious child. The episode will also see the introduction of the Star Trek: The Animated Series character Arex (see photo),

who is being digitally rendered by Tobias Richter and voiced by Chris Doohan (stepping in for his dad James Doohan who originally voiced Arex for TAS). Cawley tells TrekMovie they are almost finished with "The Child" and he hopes to release it by late summer 2011. Here is a clip.



Next up is the Klingon-focused episode "Kitumba," based on a story originally written by John Meredyth Lucas for the original 1970s’s Star Trek Phase II. The episode, which got a Phase II fan series rewrite by Patty Wright, is about Kirk and crew visiting the Klingon homeworld and the Klingon child king (the "Kitumba"). The episode features also features a cameo from Gil Gerard (Buck Rogers) playing a Starfleet Admiral. A rough cut of "Kitumba" will be shown this weekend at FedCon. Cawley says he hopes to release the episode by early 2012.



The third Star Trek Phase II episode in post-production is "Origins," written and directed by veteran Star Trek writer David Gerrold. "Origins" tells the story of young James T. Kirk as he starts his Starfleet career, including his time at the Academy and his first meeting with Mr. Spock. The younger version of James T. Kirk is played by Matthew Ewald (Galidor). The episode also features guest star Colin Cunningham from Stargate SG-1 as Captain Pike. Cawley hopes to get "Origins" out later in 2012. Here is a preview of the opening teaser featuring Kirk’s Kobayashi Maru test.



In June Star Trek Phase II goes into production on "Mind-Sifter," based on a story by Star Trek Welcommittee founder Shirley S. Maiewski about Kirk having his memory erased by the Klingons and sent back to 1950’s Earth. As they have since 2008, Phase II is also planning to go into production on another episode in October. Cawley tells TrekMovie they are still mulling over ideas for what they will be shooting this fall.

 Re: Fan Films
Some interesting things are happening with the Star Trek Fan Films!

Star Trek Phase II Re-Launches With New Vignette Featuring New Kirk + Refit Enterprise & more

http://trekmovie.com/2012/08/06/star-trek-phase-ii-re-launches-with-new-vignette-featuring-new-kirk-refit-enterprise-more/

Earlier in the summer the popular fan series Star Trek Phase II announced the recasting of their Captain Kirk. And tonight they released a new video vignette to re-launch the series which featuring Brian Gross’ Kirk along with their newly refit USS Enterprise. There is also another new member of their bridge crew which is going to blow you away. Watch it below .

Star Trek Phase II re-launches with new Captain Kirk and New USS Enterprise
Star Trek Phase II producer (and original Kirk) James Cawley has just sent over a link to this “Going Boldly” vignette which he is calling a “re-launch” for the fan series. It features Brian Gross as the new Kirk addressing his crew and it also shows off the newly re-fit design for the USS Enterprise. Pretty cool stuff.



The previously announced big change to the series was bringing on actor Brian Gross to step into the role of James T. Kirk, played in all previous episodes by producer James Cawley. Gross’ first episode will be “Bread and Savagery” which recently finished shooting. There are still a couple of episodes featuring Cawley that have yet to be released before his introduction as Kirk.

It is also interesting to see how the fan series which launched as Star Trek: New Voyages in 2004 continues to evolve. This new vignette demonstrates how the series is trying to move closer to the Star Trek: The Motion Picture era. Phase II’s Enterprise is now a step towards the full TMP refit.

Image

It was actually four years ago that the Phase II team first announced their intentions to ‘refit’ their Enterprise, but that original plan was eventually put aside, until now.

The show has also brought on board a crewmember from the Star Trek animated series in the 1970s. The three-armed tri-pedal Edosian navigator Arex joins the cast, thanks to the CGI work done by Tobias Richter. Adding Arex was announced back in 2010 and he was originally supposed to come on board for “The Child,” which was released earlier this year.

***************************************************
In other Fan Film news...

A new Fan Film series also devoted to TOS Star Trek.
They call themselves "Star Trek Continues" and quite literally pick up exactly where the last moment of the last filmed episode of Star Trek leaves off.

First Vignette From ‘Star Trek Continues’ Fan Series Picks Up Where TOS Left Off
Over the weekend at the Shore Leave convention in Baltimore, MD, the new fan series Star Trek: Continues debuted their first vignette. The new show featuring Vig Mignogna as James T. Kirk along with Chris Doohan as Scotty and Grant Imahara as Sulu, hopes to continue the five year mission following final episode from the third season. This first vignette shows how they are bridging the gap. Watch it below.

First Vignette From ‘Star Trek Continues’ picks up where TOS left off

The Star Trek Continues vignette premièred to a capacity crowd in the main room at Shore Leave 34 and it is now available online. Show star/producerVic Mignogna was on hand along with co-star Chris Doohan (who is playing his father’s role of Scotty). The vignette emphasizes how the new fan series picks up following the third season of Star Trek.

Astute fans will note how the vignette starts with a shot-by-shot recreation the final moments of the final episode of Star Trek, "Turnabout Intruder." That final scene from the original series ended with Kirk, Scotty and Spock going into the turbolift. But then the Star Trek Continues vignette shows us what happened next. Show star and producer Mignogna tells TrekMovie that this was their way of bridging their fan series with the original Star Trek. The first episode of STC, which will be shooting in October, will take place in what Mignogna sees as a notional fourth season for the original series, and will carry on the five year mission.

The Star Trek Continues team plan to release another vignette on October 1.

STC Cast Interview
The website Crave has released a video interview with the cast, which you can watch below.



I realize these fan films do not appeal to everyone especially on first viewing, but they steadily have gotten better acting-wise, and the production value is as good as (if not better than) what NBC/Desilu could produce back in the day.

 Re: Fan Films
Not knowing what your IP problems are, it's difficult to offer solutions. If you are able to watch videos at all, I suggest you go directly to youtube and put STAR TREK PHASE II in the search box. All of their webisodes should pop up and probably a lot of other groups Star Trek webisodes.

Starship Exeter has just recently completed the final part of their "Trassaurian Intersection" webisode ten years (!) after releasing the first part. it was well worth the wait--the best fan-produced Star Trek to date, imo.

 Re: Fan Films
The latest episode from Star Trek Continues is a direct sequel to the classic episode MIRROR, MIRROR picking up right at the conclusion of that episode and shows what happened when the "Mirror Kirk" returned to the I.S.S. Enterprise in the Mirror Universe. It's quite an outstanding effort:




If you liked this episode, you might want to see their two previous ones:

PILGRIM OF ETERNITY with the return of Appollo and actor Michael Forrest who portrayed the character in the original episode:




and LOLANI which features Lou "The Incredible Hulk" Ferrigno as an Orion pirate:
