November 20, 2012Find No. 11:    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 as a misc. short film, rather than as a comedy. Under (AU), here:

November 17, 2012.  Featured Go! Animators Nos. 30, 31, and 32:
Scarbs Productions

(11:17).  This show continues to be an enjoyable show marked by interesting ideas briefly and well presented.  This episode has better sound quality than Episode 4, although there is still room for improvement in that area.  For the first four episodes of Star Trek Reliant, and other information about this series, see

November 8, 2012    Spooftakular No. 25   Cats in Space   (2:13).  The title says it all.  I thought after the election, hurricanes in the US and China, (they call them typhoons in the Pacific, but still...) and now a Noreaster here... we could do with something that was not merely light, but furry.   For more short parodies and comedies, see

October 18, 2012. Find No. 8:  . Fan Films from Before 1980. under (F)  Star Trek 1977 (3:09)

October 15, 2012.  Featured Go! Animators Nos. 21, 22, and 23:


October 10, 2012.   Spooftakular No. 22  It's a Halloween Star Trek (9:38).  Shot using the costumes at a Halloween party, this is better than it had any excuse for being, although it would probably have been rated as a 1 or 2 if it were rated.  Captain Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Q, R (invented for the film), the characters from The Wizard of Oz, a security officer from the Mobster planet, Guinan, Jordy ... and it's Spock, not Kirk that turns into Elvis... you know these folk watch Phase II.   Inconsistent, but surprising.    For more short parodies and comedies, see

TNA gilt dabei als die erste vollanimierte Star Trek - Verfilmung aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum und zeigt auf skurrile Art und Weise die fiktive andere Seite von Captain Picard und seiner Besatzung.

Fast zweieinhalb Jahre hat die Entwicklung und Produktion des Films gedauert. Herausgekommen ist dabei ein aktiongeladenes SciFi-Spektakel mit einer guten Portion bissigem Humor, das nicht davor zurückschreckt, sich selbst und zahlreiche andere TV-Serien, Filme uvm. durch den Kakao zu ziehen.

Am 17. Mai 2012 feierte der Film auf der FedCon XXI in Düsseldorf Premiere.
