(207) Short Films (Not listed elsewhere)

207   Star Trek VII, Generations has been moved to

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


(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, (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. (3:44). (down as of 8/10/2017)
(3)  his spoof, mixing a new insert with a recut, "Rinse of the Archons" (1:20). (down as of 8/10/2017)
(4)  "For Bill and George."  SpockBoy wants Shatner and Takai to stop fighting.  Here he enlists the First Federation to back him up. (3:29)
(5) "The Morphing Enterprise" (0:40)
(6) "Star Trek Torch" (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:

(G) Star Trek: Chronicles (6:21).  A nice little film which tells a whole story.

(H)  Klingons Plan to Invade Earth (animation) "Klingon Propaganda" (1:52), followed by .  Poster: (1:52) By Bad Monkey Studios
Here are follow-up videos and an article about it, including a translation of both the Klingon and the claim that the human kids in the background of the follow-up video speak Turkish:

Here's the revised Bad Monkey version with English subtitles translating the Klingon:

(R)  Star Trek: The Beginning, a trailer for a Star Trek movie by a fan based on the style of JJA Trek, but not the idea. (1:32), (1:32)

(S) The Legend of Gorath  I watched it here:  It's a series of 2D stills with an audio to tell a the story of  Klingon legend.

(T) Star Trek: The Other Generation Part I (never completed Simms)  Instead, the creator has moved on to an independent space adventure series, "Star Quest".   Here is his You Tube Page:

(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. (6:43)

(AF)  30 Second Bunnies:  Bunnies: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: (0:48)

(AI) Enterprise TCW-Archer Faceposer Example (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. (4:39).

(AK) Nao does Star Trek (0:35)  Sound effects by a robot.

(AT) Star Trek: The Future Begins.  An introduction to the Kirk/Spock/McCoy etc. crew, using both sets of actors and morphing software.  Interesting. (3:49)

(AU)  Star Trek Christmas. (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  (4:35) (Low production, one night in 1992)  Poster: .  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  (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.

The First is a Mego film with some actual animal (a cat?  I'm not sure) from 1992, "Star Trek The Rescue,"  Much of this film is dark and hard to see.  It does tell a story.
