    Came across this today...
    Set 40 years after Star Trek: Nemesis, this new fan film focuses on the adventures of the crew of the USS Phoenix (NCX-101138 ). The ‘Ascension Class ship is a massive 1,400 meters long and uses a hybrid of Romulan and Federation design, with a crew of more than 10,000. The pilot episode "Cloak & Dagger" takes place one year into the maiden voyage of the ship which has a mission of exploration and diplomacy....

    The episode is on the internet, in the usual places. It... doesn't look half bad.

    Ah for God sake, a crew of 10k on a ship roughly double the size of a Galaxy class? Sounds like something I'd write :o:pac: And the lads thought the Defiant had tight quarters...

    I suppose their maiden voyage was to search for the missing Spock...

    (Not getting at you OP, just the lack of imiagination in the films description :))

    It was probably the Romulans that secretly designed it. Good way to get rid of half of star fleet. Make a few dozen Ascensions class ships, crew them up and then blow them out of the sky.

    It's an Intrepid class ship on steroids with a little bit of Stargate Universe thrown in for good measure. Who says there are no original ideas any more? :rolleyes:

    Any chance of this getting the green light for production? Or will we see a new show based on the timeline of the TOS-Reboot universe?

    I take it you haven't seen it, as you mention nothing about the acting :P

    Some of the effects shots were excellent, some were terrible. The tranporter room looked fake, bit of aliasing going on as well, or pixel distortion, I dunno, but the edges of things in the scenes look distorted/low quality. The acting was bad, not abysmal but pretty bad and the dialogue was a bit cliched and sh1t. Some of the exchanges just descended into back and forth soundbites. The tree monsters were a bad idea, they just look like people in badly made tree costumes.

    Is it worth a watch? I looked through the character list...nothing inspiring.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,187 ✭✭✭✭IvySlayer


    Intro is rubbish, effects are awful.

    The characters are stock characters. I could write a better dialogue.

    The CMO wtf was that, a 'British' accent? Stop trying to be like McCoy/Doctor with your dry sarcastic wit. And he knows the Captain from the Academy!

    Ohhh a Captain that brushes with Admirals, how original.

    The CoS that brushes with the soldiers? Reed and MACOs all over again...

    FOUND ANOTHER ONE.

    Yes. This one is called "Star Trek: Odyssey", and it's a "web-series"...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_Odyssey

    Season one has 5 episodes, and season two has 3 that I know of.

    It's a web series, so I'm posting the first part of the 1st episode.

    EPIC SPACE BATTLE looks nice at the start.

    The bad guys look like Braveheart Celts.

    I could never have the patience for fan films.
