(207) Short Films (Not listed elsewhere)

207   Star Trek VII, Generations has been moved to http://startrekreviewed-tvandmovies.blogspot.com/2012/01/movie-7.html

Short Films (Not listed elsewhere) was previously referred to as Short One Shots.

(A)  "Star Trek: Academy Training" Home made kids movie 1989.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40C1-tMJvXE&feature=related (10:21).  Remake of Ballance of Terror as ad-libbed by 9 year olds on a TOS bridge in TNG uniforms.  If you cut the title and credits, it would be under 10 minutes.  Filmmaker used VHS tape, and gives a lot of details of how this was made.  See also his channel,   http://www.youtube.com/user/startrekfiero#p/u

(B) Star Trek - The Enterprise (2:02) is a short animation by a French film maker. No voice but the written words are in English. Too short to rate.

(C) Star Trek Klingon Hamlet taH pagh taHbe' (To be or not to be)(3:22)

(D) Star Trek 11 - The Last Hope(9:44) (1991)
I watched this an it seems like a parody done for parody's sake by TOS original actors. It might be some kind of predecessor to the game, Starfleet Achademy. It has an introduction by Roddenberry, in the year of his death. Then two recruits do imiations of Shatner and Nimoy (although they are not playing Kirk and Spock) and are supposed to be recruits on a training mission with the TOS crew in their original positions, although with no advancement in the 25 years since the series began. Perhaps it was a 25th birthday celebration for TOS.

(E). The captains blog - Jean-Luc alone at last...(1:11) OK, I'm not sure this shouldn't be in Blog 246, because the only things that make this film 'Star Trek' at all is that it is shot on a TNG set, and the man giving the brief lecture is in a TNG uniform and is the actor who plays Jean Luc Picard for British fan films. Similar voice and profile to Patrick Stewart, but clearly doesn't follow the same work-out routine.  Get thee to a gym (or at least get a bicycle) Jean-Luc!

(F)  SpockBoy, a number of short films, vis:
(1)  Sepia Trek, Episode 1,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_m6qNgEfCs (4:42).  Mixes new special effects, browned footage, and silent movie style dialogue plates to create an interesting film.
(2)  his short 3D animated film, Trektoons, Episode 1.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCZVBKJErwA (3:44).
(3)  his spoof, mixing a new insert with a recut, "Rinse of the Archons" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt7wCqAmiV4 (1:20)
(4)  "For Bill and George."  SpockBoy wants Shatner and Takai to stop fighting.  Here he enlists the First Federation to back him up.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1e9LeLKNlQ (3:29)
(5) "The Morphing Enterprise"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9vWARxP1pM (0:40)
(6) "Star Trek Torch" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FAynFz5SYw (3:00) Collection of shots signifying the passing of the torch to JJATrek, posted on March 17, 2009, before the release of his first movie.
Also posted on his You Tube page are numerous other very short videos (under 1 minute) and gag reels from Star Trek.  This is his You Tube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/SpockBoy/videos

(G) Star Trek: Chronicles  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo4EOQjkfjY&feature=related (6:21).  A nice little film which tells a whole story.

(H)  Klingons Plan to Invade Earth (animation) "Klingon Propaganda" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6zDg0dKygE (1:52), followed by http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6rzMICSYuM .  Poster:

(AD)   Star Trek: Into the Abyss (The Film That Should Have Been) Combinations of original animation and film from a game, this Fan-made short is what one fan thought would have been a better Star Trek 11 (XI) than what J.J. Abrams did.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtxhDRqsaUw (6:43)

(AE)  Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan done in 60 Seconds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=is6_Wos09Gw (1:00)

(AI) Enterprise TCW-Archer Faceposer Example  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEzzlPEv2EA&feature=player_embedded (3:50)  This shows what you can do with Mechinima, and it doesn't tell a story, but it is amazing.

(AJ) Star Trek Explosions: The Fan Films.  Mostly taken from Phase II or New Voyages, OGAM, Raco Films (Star Trek v. Batman) but it's just a lot of stuff being blown up with CGI.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nt6RtZUdpk (4:39).

(AK) Nao does Star Trek http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3Rs_w6wwnO0 (0:35)  Sound effects by a robot.

(AO)  Star Trek Achievements (misspellings on both the posting and in the film).  A tribute film, not a story.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7koTGg8uzI (4:37).  Reverent.

(AU)  Star Trek Christmas.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1H7EY_Ba8o&feature=related (3:42).  Although arguably a parody, comedy, or crossover film with Dr. Seuss, I think the spirit of this short is in it's title, and therefore chose to place it here.  A review:  Fan Film Friday: Star Trek: ‘Merry Christmas!’

(AV)  Star Trek The Rescue  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ko00reJSzRU  (4:35) (Low production, one night in 1992)  Poster: http://www.youtube.com/user/RaKaanDetritus#p/u .  Toys are moved around, some in stop motion, some visibly by hand, and voices, and sound are added to tell a story.

(AW)  TNG 999   https://vimeo.com/54849000  (6:12).  I'm not certain if this is just poorly done or intended to be comedy.  At any rate, I placed it under other short films.

(AX)  Compilation of short bits from Star Trek Fan Films in the works in 2005, many of which were never completed or released.  TrekUnited.com - 2005 Star Trek Fan Film Campaign Video #4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fzqul5MBu9w  (3:20)
