(1) Quick Picks

1
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:

For Golden Age Fan Film Star Trek,

The most praised group of all the Star Trek Fan Film producers, Star Trek: Phase II (formerly Star Trek: New Voyages).  Although each of their episodes have much to recommend them, 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 their website, and download and watch it: 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! (See Short One Shots in the Table of Contents).

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://www.startreknewvoyages.com/?page_id=407  . Or, watch them both!

Starship Exeter (One Episode) See Blog 21 Starship Exeter, or click on http://www.starshipexeter.com// and watch, "The Savage Empire."  Rating: 5

Also try: "Of Gods and Men" See Blog 24 Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, or click on
Star Trek: Of Gods and Men  Rating: 5

The first Episode of Starship Farragut, Blog 22 Starship Farragut, "The Captaincy" Rating: 5
http://www.starshipfarragut.com//

For a very original but well done take on Trek, follow the Merchant Ship, Aurora and her two woman crew as they make cargo runs and face the challenges of space without the help of a massive ship, weapons, or Starfleet.  Star Trek: AuroraBlog 25 Star Trek: Aurora.  Single episode, beautiful 3D animation, well written, well edited, good voice acting, Rating: 5

For an excellent series, with only very minor technical issues, The Multiverse Crisis, http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/34.html.  I'll put more details here when I give this elevation a Headline.

For Silver Age Fan Film Star Trek, "Star Trek: Intrepid." See Blog 79 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 "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.

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 short films not classified elsewhere, see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/207.html
 [This section is proposed, not yet developed!]

I have only begun going through the comedies and parodies, and have not yet developed a system to rate them.  However,  I can strongly recommend the animated film, Stone Trek. Episode One, The Deadly Ears. Not free, but I can also recommend  Stalled Trek: Amutt Time.

But, be Warned: I haven't watched most of the fan films myself.

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 has done many reviews of Star Trek Fan Films.

(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

(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, Star Trek XI, Blog 211

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.

(4) Overview of Fan Films

Overview of Fan Films

Some of the products of Star Trek alumni, Trekkers, and Trekkies are of stellar quality. Some are better than some of the authorized professional materials. I include "Of Gods and Men" (See Blog 24) as a fan film because it is unauthorized and associated with James Cawley, who is Fan Film's Jacob to Gene Roddenbury's Abraham in the Star Trek World. However, "Of Gods And Men" stars professional actors and is distinguished from professionally produced Star Trek only by the extreme of care and love so evidently put into the project... and the small production budget. Star Trek Phase II is produced by show business professionals, including James Cawley, who worked for Paramount on the later Star Trek series as a costumer, and who appears in both J.J. Abram's "Star Trek" and "Of Gods and Men." The production quality of Phase II films is obviously professional. Phase II has sold props to Paramount. Not yet released Phase II episodes star the Paramount JJ Abram's film's Spock double as Spock.  (No $150 million budget, though).  Some credit James Cawley with saving the Star Trek franchise. However, former cast members and James Cawley are not the only Star Trek professionals who has produced fan films. Starship Exeter (Blog 21) includes Paramount Star Trek alumni, and boasts stellar quality work as well.  Star Trek: Beyond is also produced by industry professionals, and has a significant volume of output of fan films available for viewing. (see Blog 170).

For a Star Trek Time Line, See http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Timeline .  Here is another one from the Hidden Frontier forum: http://forums.hiddenfrontier.com/index.php?showtopic=14711&st=0 .  More timelines:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Star_Trek ; http://sto.gamepedia.com/Chronology   For a map of the Professionally produced Star Trek Voyages, click: Map of the Galaxy via Star Trek or for a map of the Alpha Quadrent, showing the empires in the neighborhood: http://www.scifianddragons.com/startrek/images/maps/Full%20Map.jpg

I am in the process of assigning Fan Film Maker groups into one of three groups.  (A) says they are Actively producing new Fan Films.  (B) says that they may have something in the can they are working on releasing, but no serious plans for more after that.  (B) alternatively would apply to a group which has plans but have let a lot of time elapse since their last film.   A Group partway through a partially released film with more than one year between sections may also be given a (B) if they have no specific release date for their next section.  (C) says the group has Completed all Star Trek Fan Films.  It may still be producing prose, comics, audio shows, or other fan Trek, but it is done with films.

For the location of fan film producers, here is a map which is a work in progress:
In some cases, all I have is a nation, a state or a province of origin, not a city, so many of the markers (e.g. in Germany) are not exact. They are (with the Exception of "Enterprise," "Titan", and "The Way Back") just somewhere in Germany. In many cases, I don't even have that yet. The map is a map of the world. You can move what you see in the window around with you mouse. You can then zoom in on your part of the world to see what, if any, fan films are made in your area.  However, fan film groups in Blog 210 with a two-letter designation are believed to not be active.  Most of these have been removed from the map.  Those starting with A (as in AB) may have some slow work being done, or may be on hold for a short time (e.g., six months).  Some links may also be pre-reorganization of this website.  Check the Index, at Blog 250, to find information about a filmmaker with an outdated link.

Fan production set at the time of Golden Age Star Trek are fan film links and reviews start at Blog 20, with Phase II/New Voyages. (Roughly, 2250-2349 AD.)

Star Trek: The Next Generation("TNG") through late TNG Movies, including Star Trek: Deep Space Nine ("DS9") and Voyager("VOY") and shortly thereafter time line are here referred to as the "Silver Age" Star Trek. Silver Age fan production links and reviews star at Blog 80. (Roughly 2350-2449 AD.)

Fan productions set in the time of the last series, Enterprise, until Spock enters Star Fleet Academy will be referred to here as "Stone Age" Star Trek. Stone Age fan production links and reviews start at Blog 10,. (Roughly 2150-2249 AD.)

Some fan film productions are set 70 or more years after Voyager returns to Earth. Star Trek Beyond is set 160 years after Voyager. Clearly, this is not Silver Age Star Trek. I will call films set roughly from 70 to 270 years after Voyager returns to Earth Bronze Age Star Trek. Bronze Age fan productions links and reviews will start at Blog 170. (Roughly 2450-2649 AD.)

I was originally unsure how to handle fan films produced based on the J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot. I once proposed calling it "Iron Age" Star Trek or "Iron Pyrite Age" Star Trek. But that would not fit my 'time line' based system. I then realized that if I were going to differentiate between J.J. Abrams Star Trek and TOS, I also had to make a distinction between the original time line and Trek set in the Mirror Universe.  I decided to call it entirely by time line for overall classification.

Most fan websites include only a few episodes, and have only one blog here to for their listings.  However, Hidden Frontier is by far the largest website for fan produced Silver Age Trek. It is not created by entertainment industry professionals, although it is located in Southern California.  In 2010, it stopped filming new Star Trek Fan Films, and starting producing audio Trek only.  One final film was released in 2011.  It is also a website which has a clear political agenda, gay rights (or, as they must now be called in some states, "Takei rights."). It has completed an entire fan show series of 50 separate episodes, and has completed filming three new series as well as a non-Star Trek series, some of which continue as audio shows. I will note that the non-Star Trek materials exist, but will not link to them. Hidden Frontier is in Blog 100 , but it's series are in Blogs 101 through, Blog 107. Voyages of The USS Angeles, a fan film series which forms the basis of the Hidden Frontier fan films, is at Blog 107. You can also listen to their new audio series which continues these adventures.

GoAnimate! Is a major website of an entirely different sort.  They have created tools for easy animations to let anyone make animated Star Trek, although their rights to do this ended in 2012.  The work done using Go!Animate has been given it's own website, Star Trek Reviewed - Go!Animate.  This is the Table of Contents:  Table of Contents for Star Trek Reviewed - Go!Animate 

Where to draw the line between major films or groups of small films which get their own blog and small groups of shorts or one-shot shorts that do not isn't perfectly clear. For the time being, that distinction is being made in a somewhat arbitrary manner.

eMBee has been kind enough to provide the following total run times for some select Star Trek Fan Film production groups as of October 10, 2013. The following text is unedited:

Hidden Frontier                      (35:44:31)
    Frontier Guard                    (2:26:56)
Star Trek: Unity                      (9:31:41)
Star Trek: Phase II                  (7:21:29)
Star Trek: Kayaian Films              (5:34:36)
Starship Farragut              (4:29:10)
Raumschiff Highlander                (3:46:33)
Star Trek: Encarta                    (4:02:10)
Star Trek: The Romulan Wars          (3:24:01)
Star Trek: Dark Frontier              (3:14:01)
Star Trek: Intrepid                  (2:17:52)
Star Trek: New Homelands              (1:35:33)
Star Trek: Reliant                    (1:25:09)
Project: Potemkin                    (1:24:57)
Star Trek: Dark Armada                (1:21:08)
Star Trek: Tales of the Seventh Fleet (1:12:37)
Star Trek: Aurora                    (1:03:56)
Star Trek Continues            (1:02:09)

sorted by time, this list includes all series with more than one episode
which i have seen. (i have not yet seen all of Unity or Reliant, but i
have the files so i added them in)
Highlander is sorted before Encarta because i am missing episode 3 which
is not published yet and i am sure it is longer than the 15 minutes
difference.
i also included Frontier Guard, but you can skip them if you like.

Unity does not include the first 17 episodes, so there is actually more.
and of course any series i don't even know about yet is also not
included. (i'll get through watching what i have before i pick the next
one from your lists, unless some series happens to make itself known by
a new release like Reliant just did last month, then i'll pick that next)

also not included are individual films like "Of Gods and Men" and others
of significant length. i can compile another list for those some other
time. (alltogether i have seen about 8 hours worth of those, but that
number is meaningless because it is just a fraction of what is out there

(5) Fan Film Series, Production Groups, and Significant Individual Fan Films with links to their individual blogs.

5  This listing has not been updated in three years.  It always needed more detail on some groups to be more useful.  The user can scan this for Drama or Comedy, live action, animation, mechinima, puppets, or other forms. For Audio, see Audio listings.  Ideally there would be a little additional detail to help the watcher pick a set of films to consider.  I currently list 66 groups of  the over 90 listed in this website which have produced fan films.  Most that are currently producing a film and have already put out significant output ("significant" is arbitrarily defined by me.) do not have their own listings, if they have not produced  a full film.  Abandon projects by groups that have completed projects will be found under the producer's webpage or, in the case of Hidden Frontier, webpages, here.

These Star Trek Fan Films are set in the past, the present day or in the future but prior to the Stone Age which begins 2150 AD (or CE).

Blog 6: Duet.  Drama, live action.  Set in post-World War II Germany
Home on You Tube:  http://www.youtube.com/user/actorwriterdca
Home base is Garden Grove, California.  Film is shot in color before a green screen and changed into black and white as a special effect.

Blog 7: Steam Trek. Historical recreation, live action.   This tribute to Trek and the beginnings of film tells a story which is part 20,000 leagues under the sea, part Perils of Pauline, and yes, part Star Trek, in black and white and in the style of early silent films.  I have also included links to two genuine early silent films so that the reader can compare this recreation to the real thing.  One, a Trip to the Moon, is said to include the first special effects, the second, The Great Train Robbery, the first to tell a story.

Blog 8, Stone Trek.  Comedy, animation.  Several films, Star Trek in the animation style of the Flintstones, but no Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty, Bam Bam or Pebbles in sight.   The comedy style may be Flintstones, but these stories are 100 per cent Star Trek, or whatever other franchise is being satirized.

This is a remake of a Deep Space 9 Episode, but set in post-World War II Germany.  It is not very 'Trek.'  I'm not sure it belongs in this collection.  It has apparently been included in an Israeli film festival on holocaust films.  It raises the issue of how far away from Trek is a film before it's not a fan film.  The connection here is explicit, but I am still not sure that this belongs on this website of Trek fan films.  Comments below are welcome.

My own issues with this are simple.  The value of discussing issues such as war, massacres, strife between species and peoples, in Sci Fi instead of in the real world are that it frees people from their personal involvement and allows them to look at such issues as abstractions.  It also frees the writer of doing the hard work of serious research required of historical fiction.  Setting a story in a real place limited the writer to reality.  And that's how the trouble starts.   A well written bit of sci fi can get past the overwhelming issues of harm and loss and bring the reader, or watcher, to issues of looking forward to a better tomorrow.  So much of recent writing about Nazi Germany and its aftermath is wildly unrelated to historical reality.  The Nazis were very proud that they were going to be the people who rid the world of Jews, and kept careful documentation of their extermination.  That has not stopped Iran, and like nations from claiming it didn't happen.  Likewise, many recent films have a fantasy notion of escape, or ability to rise above the situation in the camps without the individual compromising their integrity as copos or prostitutes.  It is easy to forget the Nazi notion that the ideal man committed violence with no conscience or regret.

My family was not a victim of Nazi Germany, save the way every other American family was during World War II.  Like all young men in the 1940s, my father fought in the war, as did my uncles, and my mother and aunts worked in the war factories.  I have relatives, direct and by marriage, who were involved in the assault on Germany and who witnessed what occurred there when they entered upon liberation.  And I grew up in New York, where many survivors of those camps settled after World War II.  So, while in no way a victim, the distortions offend me.  I have not yet watched this, so I cannot say if this is one of the bizarre flights of fancy or not.  Having said all that, whether good or bad, this film falls squarely within my guidelines, and is therefore included in my collection unless and until I come up with a different defination of a fan film.  I have not reviewed this film, and do not expect to review it for a long time.  However, I consider it ready to be reviewed.  Mr. Andrews has told me he may create an additional Star Trek Fan film, but I don't know if it would be on this order, or a more traditional fan film.

Mr. Andrews has been kind enough to say that the running time is almost exactly an hour, 59 minutes 42 seconds.

When I add up the You Tube Total I get a running time:  59 minutes, 45 Seconds.  That includes 14 introductions and 14 sets of credits, so the actual film is clearly shorter.

The creator is Christopher Andrews of Garden Grove, California.
