You Tube home:

Hardwire Productions
JJ Enterprise Meets Refit Enterprise (0:37)

This fellow,, VideoSpaceFX seems to do mostly remakes using only CGI and captions.   The filmmaker recommends looking at these:
"Escape of Khan" - Launch of the Botany Bay.  The creator also has a lot of other CGI-only videos. (6:45)  Story is told with captions and CGI.
"Borg Incursion" (Best of Both Worlds) - Enterprise Engages Borg Cube:  (8:18)
"Eyes in the Dark" - Enterprise-D escapes a Tyken's Rift: (2:55)
"Battle of Narendra III" - Yesterday's Enterprise: High quality: (14:54)  older, lower quality version: (15:00)

What if the Organians did not interfere? (4:43)

omnoplea  produced Star Trek: The Battle of Tyra (5:25)

Martok2112 produced, inter alia:

Here are two "Borg Invasion" films to be sorted by creator:

by nitemare  Star Trek XI Borg Invasion(5:53) All CGI.  This short is mostly silent, it show a single Star Fleet ship destroying a Borg cube.  The 5 minute, 53 second short is entitled Star Trek XI: Borg Invasion.  No humans or aliens are shown, just ships and a planet that looks a lot like Jupiter, red spot and all.

Bad as that was, it looks good next to this Borg Invasion by motionflyer short:

Mauricio Duarte Goncalves dos Santos  offers several CGI films, including (1:45)

TaCoskun (2:52)

(1) Chasing The Infinite Sky.  Alternative timeline rendering of Star Trek. from    Alvision 100, (5:22) (7/25/2016).  Ultra Widescreen released 6/14/2017,  Also at (Note aside:  The known universe is believed to be well under 150 billion light years in diameter, so 1.2 trillion light years would place them in an alternative universe.  However, it would be in an alternative section of the ekpyrotic (metaverse) if that is the actual shape of reality.)

Included in a list of Guidelines-compliant Star Trek Fan Films by Syfy:

(2)  U.S.S. Challenger (A Brighter Future), also from Alvision100,

Dr. Robbi Animations, or Robert Ziolkowski, Star Trek Rewind.  In 2409, we see a planet explode and the Enterprise 1701 F go with it, (Silver Age).  Then the film shifts to 2151 (Stone Age) and an attack on the NX-01 Enterprise.  At first, there is a disastrous ending, then a ship appears from the future, time rewinds, and there is instead a triumphant ending.  This happens again in two other timeframes, The film jumps to Sektor 002 in the year 2271 (Golden Age).  Then the film jumps to near Cardassia in the year 2375 (Silver Age). Now it is back to the 1701 F,  and instead of a planet exploding we see space fireworks.  Star Trek - Rewind, (17:04)

  1. Some of my work...

  2. Thank you for the heads-up. You're now in the alphabetical list!

  3. Hi! Great site, Barb. An invaluable resource for any Trek fan!

    Thought I'd toss you the YouTube link to my own Trek CGI animations for your review. Enjoy!

  4. Is this you? ? You seem to have more there than CGI sequences. I'm putting you into my bin of 'to be investigated.' You might wind up here, but I see other places you might also be placed. Thanks for letting me know you exist! I'll look into where to include your work, so that your fellow Trek fans can find it!

  5. Thanks for the private PM. I am temporarily adding you here since you definitely qualify AT LEAST for a listing here.
