October 20, 2011.  Spooftackular No. 2.:    GoatBoyFilms presents: Star Trek: Alpha Strike, Live action, adult filmmaker, Early Golden Age, Star Trek uniforms.  They produced two fan films, one of which is a spoof,  "Misadventures in Space."  http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x60o7_misadventures-in-space_creation (6:10)
You Tube offers a much longer version  which I have not watched:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFt7TgOjeJ0 (1:14:29)

"Beauty of the Razor" is close to TOS in style and judging from the note I have received from the filmmaker, it is intended as an action/adventure drama and not a spoof.  http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xdr3ge_star-trek-alpha-strike-fan-film_shortfilms (13:40)

See http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/41.html for all  of the information I have on Goatboy Films.

October 12, 2011  Star Trek: Eagle (live action, teen trek, highly produced with sets and costumes, Golden Age.) has released their second episode, "The Bismark."

This episode is so much better than the first one it's hard to believe the same people did it.  It was also nice to see a crossover with George Kayaian (of The Multiverse Crisis) making  a guest appearance.  I love fan film crossovers!  And I also see a "Thank you" to Romulan Wars.  Thanks to all involved for an enjoyable episode!

And as of Oct. 29, 2011 it's available to the Trek fan in Brazil and Portugal!  Here it is with Portuguese subtitles:

October Spooftakular begins a series of weekly Headlines highlighting Star Trek Comedies and Spoofs which were found during 2011, well after they were made and posted.  These will be interrupted by new releases.  Due to the release of a major German Language film, as well as recent finds of several other German Language films, I was going to have a mid-month Oktoberfest headline, which would have highlighted newly found and newly released German Language Star Trek Fan Films.  However, the heavy release schedule has thrown off those plans, plus my own research has exposed the ill-timing of this plan, so I will not be having the general German Language Fan Film feature.  The Spooftakular will continue at least through December, and quite possibly into 2012, depending on the number of releases which come through, as well as any discovery of as-yet unknown Star Trek fan parodies and comedies.

October 1, 2011 Spooftakular No 1.:  Ian White Cult Movies  Presents Star Trek Spoof  The two films in this series were done by a British Star Trek Fan a few years ago, but only discovered by me this year.  Each is roughly the length of a one-hour episode, without commercials.  Most aspects of these lighthearted parodies are Golden Age, although a few Silver Age aspects creep into the presentations.  They were sufficiently slick, yet oddball that I had to check to be sure that Ian White was an ordinary Star Trek Fan, not a British comic with his own TV show.   For everything I know about this filmmaker, see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/45.html .  Or, to go directly to watch these amusing films, follow this directory:
