To commemorate this he has created a brand new animated episode which features Scotty in the lead role. On the way to pick up Captain Kirk and Science Officer Spock from a peace conference, U.S.S.

July 8, 2020New ReleaseShocker from Artifactsofmars. The USS Yorktown arrives at planet Tau seti E for a routine  mission to the colonies but is met by the governor warning of lunar phenomena and electrical shocks harming the colonists.  He wants the visit kept quiet, but Cpt Roger Murray refuses, citing that his crew must operate openly. A crew dispatched to the surface finds a probe and traces it back to a geologist named Fred Granger, a womanizer more interested in pleasure than the shape of the planet. Science teams on the planet and its moon learn that a dangerous electrical potential is building between the two and an electrical shock victim is brought aboard, having been attacked by an electrical creature. The captain of the Yorktown faces a potential disaster which may destroy the colonies if he cannot find a way to stop it, and the data supplied by the uncooperative geologist is of no help. Will they survive?

Transporting down to the surface, the teams soon find that others have been there as well, and recently. Although the anthropology team tries to avoid contact with the primitive people there, a member is hit by a giant poisonous creature and is rescued by them. Meanwhile, the Kongo leaves orbit to investigate a huge asteroid on a collision course with the planet. Made primarily of volcanic glass, the object is long & fragile, and the crew must find a way to tow it to a safe orbit. They appear to be fulfilling an ancient prophecy about saving the planet from 'the sky sword', unless they are destroyed by an alien ship from an empire of reptile-like marauders first.

(1) Quick Picks

Quick Picks
Don't want to waste time reading reviews? Just want to know which fan films to watch first? I've already found these Quick Pick Treasures:


The most viewed Star Trek  Fan Film is set at the time of Enterprise.  Try Star Trek Horizonhttp://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/15.html.  The film has been viewed over 10  million times as of February, 2019!


For Golden Age Fan Film Star Trek,

The two most praised groups of all the Star Trek Fan Film producers, are Star Trek New Voyages aka Star Trek: Phase II and  Star Trek Continues.

Star Trek New Voyages aka Star Trek: Phase II   Although each of their episodes has much to recommend it, you might start with "World Enough and Time" which is their third episode.  Go to  (Blog 20) Star Trek Phase II or Star Trek New Voyages   for discussions and reviews, or directly to these websites, and download and watch their films:  http://www.startrekphase2.de/en/4x03_world_enough_and_time.php   http://www.startreknewvoyages.com/?page_id=378  Rating: 5.  Also, the best fan film I have seen. In one additional note, this Fan Film Group has such enthusiastic followers that it has a Fan Film about New Voyages/Phase II's Fan Films!

If you are very shy about taking on a full-length film, you could also start with their excellent short vignette, "Center Seat." It's here: http://stnv.de/en/401v_center_seat.php. Or, watch them both!

Also recreating TOS, Star Trek Continues, the second episode entitled, "Lolani".  It was filmed in late 2013 was released February 8, 2014.  View it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mOpmIFTxkE (50:46) or here: https://vimeo.com/86215323 (50:47).  With Portuguese subtitles, here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKE-x5i8leo (50:46).  For their other offerings see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/27.html

Ever wonder what Star Trek would look like if the guys who produced the Yogi Bear cartoon made a Star Trek movie?  Wonder no more: Check out the 2-hour animated film, "The Paradise Makers,"
http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/70.html.  Yep, they retired together and got bored, and this is what they did.

For an excellent series, with only very minor technical issues, The Multiverse Crisis, http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/34.html.  The second film as of 2/25/2018, Completely remasted from the original film, Incident at Beta 9 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VG6OtuFIXEw(54:08).  Much technically improved!

For Silver Age Fan Film Star Trek, "Star Trek: Intrepid." See Blog 109 Star Trek: Intrepid

OR click on:

Star Trek: Intrepid
but watch the episodes in this order:
Heavy Lies the Crown
Transitions and Lamentations
Confessions by Firelight
Machinations
Where There's a Sea
Turning Point
A Stone Unturned

Speak Czech? Or, if not, willing to handle subtitles? If so, I can recommend two fine films:
"Patriotka," https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wC_D939D7YY (13:56). (Also with Portuguese subtitles, here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qe8Xfl3_jKg (13:56)  Rating: 5.  In full compliance with the Guidelines and Star Trek canon.  For more Star Trek Fan Films from the same film group, see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/141.html.
"Star Trek: The Metrensky Incident". Rating: 5. See Blog 85, Star Trek: The Metrensky Incident for both download instructions and instructions on how to run the film with the subtitled language of your choice.

Also excellent: Audio Drama "Outpost" (formerly Star Trek: Outpost.)  You'll find links to that and dozens of other audio dramas here: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/247.html

Set after Enterprise but before TNG, Prelude to Axanar was created as a fake documentary about the subject of what was to be a full-length film.  Due to a CBS lawsuit, it now seems highly unlikely the full-length film will ever be made, but Prelude to Axanar is still worth viewing.  Find it at http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/14.html.

Like Comedies?  I recommend "Stalled Trek: Amutt Time".   A friend of mine who is a comedy lover says this is the best of all Trek comedies/parodies.  For more information on this original series parody, see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/50.html.

[proposed section]Other Quick Picks:  The following films are all very good, rated 4 or 4.5, but lack a single element that would move them up to a 5.  That element might be poor quality sound or picture at places that doesn't interfere with viewing enjoyment, or a great, well-told story with no 'message'.
For example,

Star Trek Deception.  (Adult fans, live action, sets, costumes, green screens, CGI, Silver Age, Cheshire, Northwich, UK) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALGLRd5RyA4 (8:30)  Exceptional short film. For more Star Trek Fan Films from this team see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/157.html

Eleven choice recent Fan Films by Syfy (All fit the Guidelines released by CBS):  http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/11-star-trek-fan-films-ranked

 [This section is proposed, not yet developed!]

I have only begun going through the comedies and parodies, and do not expect to develop a system to rate them.  However,  I can strongly recommend the animated film, Stone Trek. Episode One, The Deadly Ears.

For a time there was an animated suite at Go!Animate which made it easy to create Star Trek Fan Films.  Most were not made with great finesse, but three of the best filmmakers called themselves RoTV, http://startrekreviewed-goanimate.blogspot.com/2011/10/rotv.html, Solarbaby, http://startrekreviewed-goanimate.blogspot.com/2011/10/solarbaby.html, and the still ongoing production which includes a recent live action film, The Federation Files by Glen Wolfe, http://startrekreviewed-goanimate.blogspot.com/2015/07/glen-wolfe.html.  Here is a Table of Contents for Go!Animate Star Trek Fan Films: http://startrekreviewed-goanimate.blogspot.com/2011/10/table-of-contents-for-goanimate.html

But, be Warned: I haven't watched most of the Star Trek fan films listed on this website.

I've sorted out websites that have films from ones that don't, and found films on You-Tube, Vimeo, and other video-hosting websites that have no websites of their own. I'm optimistic that much of what I've found but haven't watched yet is very good! However, know that I have removed a few films I have glanced at for sexual content. I have created a separate "Adults Only" website for Fan Films with explicit sex and violence.  Links to that website, rather than links to those fan films, are in the appropriate places in this website.  I'm trying to put links to every fan film which does not have that kind of problem which I can find below, organized in a useful way...   I have put aside plans to review most films until a later time.  If  I do more reviews, I want to inform you about what's good to watch... what's good to skip.... and enough about why I think so so that if your taste differs from mine, you can watch what will make you happy. Where I've found easy to access reviews or review threads on the fan films, I've included them.  Randy Hall of SciFiPulse did many reviews of Star Trek Fan Films, but sadly they have been taken down.

(3) Rating System

Rating System

NOTE: except for Quick Pick Treasures I no longer rate films because it's simply more than I can do while keeping up this listing.  I encourage you to write a review of any fan film you watch, and tell me.  Put it in a blog or elsewhere on the web and I will link to it as long as it is about the film, not the actors or people you are angry at, it is suitable for reading by children (unless the film is in Star Trek Restricted), and is in reasonably readable language.

I use a 6 point rating system. From best to worse, the rating system is:
5 - Excellent, wonderful -- as good as the best Star Trek made by anyone. It does well on all these: 1)Well written, 2) well acted, 3)enjoyable use of sets, background, CGI or other special effects, 4)entertaining, 5)well directed, 6)well edited, 7) it makes a point of some kind or explores an idea of political, scientific or social scientific interest... whether I agree or not, and 8) it provides a low level of suspension of disbelief beyond that required to watch and enjoy TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY. A 5 has all of these traits.
4 - Very Good, Entertaining, has 6 or 7 of the 8 points.
3 - Good to OK. It is a matter of taste. It has 4 or 5 points of 8.  If you like Star Trek, it's probably worth a try.
2 - Not so good to watch. It has something going for it, but it only hits on 2 or 3 of the points, or is weak technically (see below). I recommend watching NovaScienceNow on PBS instead. Neil DeGrasse Tyson will give you The Cosmic Perspective. If it makes you feel better, he opened the show on August 18, 2009 wearing an TOS Starfleet captain's uniform...
1 - Hard to watch. It may have something good about it. Either it has just one or zero of the eight points, or it may just be technically so weak that it's hard to follow. but you'd be much better entertained by reruns of most made for television classroom lecture shows. Can I recommend "The Western Tradition," (http://www.learner.org/resources/series58.html) introduction to physics (http://www.learner.org/resources/series42.html) or a nice course in Algebra (http://www.learner.org/resources/series66.html) or Statistics(http://www.learner.org/resources/series65.html)?
"Really, Really Bad Stuff" or 0 - ... this stuff is worse than hard to watch.  It's aggressively bad, and it has no redeeming qualities.  These films are not given their own webpages, but are listed here: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/209.html .  They do offer us one redeeming quality... they make us appreciate the serious but failed efforts that may be rated a 1 or a 2.

EXTRA CREDIT for just plain fun!
LOSE ONE POINT if the quality of the sound and video make watching it difficult, TWO POINTS if it's so bad it makes it hard to follow.
LOSE ONE POINT for including non-Star Trek science fiction or serious literary sources (e.g., it treats Hamlet as history, not a play) in the stories, TWO POINTS if the non-Star Trek materials are from fantasy or other non-reality based and non-Science Fiction sources (it includes magic, vampires, aliens who defy the laws of physics like Superman or Star Wars).

For a better understanding of the thinking behind this rating system, read these Blogs:

(240)Why Star Trek Reviewed? (and later essays called the Annual Mission Statements)

and

(241) What is Star Trek and why are some people so enthusiastic about it?

Or read my review of the J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie,  http://startrekreviewed-tvandmovies.blogspot.com/2012/01/movie-11.html

All rated fan films represent significant work. All rated fan films beat out watching meaningless trailers, teasers, credits for films that don't exist. Fan films websites listed under Blog 210 have no product. But these websites can issue a single full episode and can get any rating. This website is for viewers who want to watch fan films, not people who want to create them. Videos listed in Blog 209 are bad enough that my assertion that anything rated is better than just watching trailers and looking at banners is violated. The purpose of the ratings are to help the viewer not to degrade the creators, all of whom have clearly worked hard and lovingly.

FOR CREATORS OF FAN FILMS: I am trying to include the physical location of all fan film productions so that people who would like to be involved can contact a fan film in their own part of the world. That is also why I am including fan film websites with no product.
