Recently fans of the original Star Trek got together and made an amazing Web episode entitled Star Trek Continues: Pilgrim of Eternity. However, this wasn’t just any old fan film. This version of Star Trek mimicked the look and feel of old Trek so well that I kind of forgot I was watching something 45+ years younger than the last episode. Produced by Farragut Films and DracoGen Investments, the new Web series picks up where original Star Trek left off and seeks to finish the 5 year voyage of the USS Enterprise. The show is executive produced and directed by Vic Mignogna (Mignogna also plays Captain Kirk) and stars Chris Doohan and Grant Imahara from Mythbusters.
Currently Star Trek continues has a Kickstarter campaign going to raise the $100,000.00 they need to finish the Web series. With about 12 days left (as of this post) their Kickstarter is about 75% funded. I’ve posted both the video for the kickstarter below along with the already produced Web epsisode (Pilgrim of Eternity). Check them out to see how cool this all is then skip on over to Kickstarter.com and donate a couple of bucks to make this thing happen!
Live long and prosper El Moochadores!
