Star Trek Continues
STAR TREK CONTINUES is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, fan-produced webseries. Brought to life by long-time Star Trek: The Original Series fan and producer, director, actor, Vic Mignogna.
The Original Series was not only ahead of its time on political (progressive) matters, it was entirely entertaining and offered a sense of hope, that humanity would reach greater heights as mankind explored the Universe, and became something far more than a bunch of squabbling nations restricted to one planet.
This has been recaptured almost 50 years later by a fan-based production that is free for all to enjoy. I strongly recommend it to anyone who loved the original series. More than anything that has been produced since in the Star Trek Original series, Star Trek Continues carries on in almost the same spirit and feel.
Everything, from the sets, to the music, to the angles the camera takes is duplicated almost to be indistinguishable from the original. Vic Mignogna who plays Captain Kirk in this continuation, explains in the video below how it all began, and why he’s so passionate about it:
In another short video, Vic explains some of the difficulties that go into producing a show of this quality, indeed it has to be a labor of love for those involved to do this for little more than the pride and satisfaction of creating this series:
Star Trek Continues is now working on Episode 10 with more to come, I invite you to watch, if you were a fan of the Original series, if perhaps you grew up with it, or its reruns, once you get past the change in actors, you can see it is of the same style, quality, and spirit of the original. Enjoy!
