Last weekend at Phoenix Comicon I was fortunate enough to see the world premier of the fan film Star Trek Continues. In association with Farragut Films and Dracogen Investments, Vic Mignogna (a Farragut Films principal), directed this new web series based on the original Star Trek series.
They have recreated the original sets in a way I did not think was possible. There is no way you can watch this and not believe you aren’t on the original set. Everything was recreated perfectly, even the new actors had many of the mannerisms of the original cast.
This is by far the best production of a fan film I have ever come across. And you will recognize several of the actors on the cast: Vic Mignogna (voice actor from Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragonball Z, Pokemon and many more) is Captain Kirk. Filling Scottys shoes is the orginal actors son, Chris Doohan. Longterm Star Trek franchise journalist and technical writer is playing Doctor McCoy. Grant Imahara may be the most visually recognizable from being on Mythbusters and is playing Sulu.
If you are a fan of the original Trek series, I highly recommend you watch their first episode, Pilgrim of Eternity.
