Headline News for November, 2011

November 27, 2011.  Star Trek: Intrepid has released a short, very personal film, "Confessions by Firelight." You can download it here: view it on You Tube Here: (5:45) or on Vimeo here: (5:45).  To view it as part of the totality of the story of Star Trek: Intrepid, and watch the rest of what one of the best acted and best written Star Trek Fan Film producers has to offer, go to . (Life action, adult fans, Silver Age)

Also very personal, Go!Animate's MattyG Productions has produced Star Trek: Recovery or Star Trek: USS Recovery (both are used)  Original Time Line, set after the destruction of Romulas, but uses the animation characters created for TOS.  The panel displays look like TNG or beyond.  Click here for webpage:  MattyG Productions  This is a set of short videos in a continuing (or single) story.  I found the first two slow, but after that the story picked up.  The show also brings in the subject of dealing with addiction, which is a very appropriate use of Star Trek.
Eps. 1  Promises:  (6:27)
Eps. 2  Maiden Voyage:   (13:14)
Eps. 3  Burn the Constitution   (5:15)

A Review: Star Trek: Aurora
A discussion in a Florida General Circulation newspaper, the Tampa Bay Examiner, of the first four parts:

November 6, 2011.  Spooftackular No. 3. Star Trek: Trailer Trek. Live Action Parody of The Doomsday Machine.  It identifies itself as being in the 23rd century, which would make it Stone Age or Golden Age, but the uniforms mix Silver Age and TOS movie era. Completed in 1998, it won the "Golden Reel Award" for special effects at an annual film festival at Northern Illinois University.  It was shown on a local TV station in DeKalb, Ill. in 2001.  Since then, it has been remastered and put on You Tube.   You Tube Home:
