A new fan produced series based on the original (and still the best) Star Trek has made its debut.
Star Trek Continues has posted its first episode, “Pilgrim of Eternity” for fans to view. In the episode, Apollo returns to wreak havoc on Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise.
The series features actor Christopher Doohan as Scotty. Doohan is the son of actor James Doohan. It also features Marina Sirtis as the voice of the ship’s computer and friend of Slice of SciFi, Larry Nemeck as Doctor McCoy.
Here’s details about the project:
The premise of the series is based on the original 5-year voyage. The original series ended three years into the journey. Vic and his team are starting this new series right where the original left off.
This new series is being brought to you in partnership with Farragut Films and DracoGen Investments – creators of the award-winning web series, Starship Farragut. The series is being shot in the original 4:3 format to keep the authenticity of the framing of the original series.
