Star Trek Continues (2011-2018)

Star Trek Continues is a fan-created science fiction series set in the Star Trek universe produced by Trek Continues and Dracogen. The series is an unofficial direct continuation of the third and last season of Star Trek: The Original Series, whose visual and storytelling features have been reproduced to recreate the same look-and-feel.

Star Trek New Voyages (2011-)

It’s hokey. So was the original Star Trek really. It’s Star Trek New Voyages. It’s a fan fiction organization that lives on what you’ll donate to them on a Home Depot card. This show wouldn’t further the franchise commercially, but most Star Trek fan fiction is so bad that it hurts. This production is the brain child of professional Elvis impersonator, James Cawley. Is it Captain Kirk or is it Elvis? Sometimes this show gets really stupid, but it is a well done production given it’s done by a bunch of fans. This looks like fun. Unlike a lot of the fan fiction stuff, this show doesn’t chroma key things. The sets are real, including a replica Enterprise bridge.

Starship Exeter

Here’s a bit of fan made Star Trek that isn’t too shabby. Captain John Quincy Garravick takes the Star Ship Exeter up against some lizard people and the Tholians. What caught my eye is that these guys seem to keep the feel of the original Star Trek. You almost expect Bill Shatner to exclaim “I’m fighting with cardboard here”

Star Trek – Aurora (2012)

There are quite a few attempts at Star Trek fan films and this one is one of the finest. I loved this story about the Freighter Aurora with it’s young captain and Vulcan first officer. It’s a remarkable job of a 3D animated movie.

Yongary, Monster from the Deep (1967)

Hes not Japanese, he’s Korean in this movie about a gasoline drinking monster from 1967. He doesn’t have the style of Godzilla or the class of Gamera, but he did get his own monster movie all the same.
