Headline News for November, 2013


November 24, 2013.  Introducing FAN MASHUPS AND RECUTS, a page for many fan-made shorts and stories made of footage from existing Professional Trek and some high-end Fan Trek.  http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/214.html .  This page is not well organized, and I am open to handing responsibility for it to a fan who would like to organize it.  Due to the use of professional Trek footage, these films represent a greater violation of copyright laws than most Fan efforts.   Here is an example, in which footage from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek (The Original Series) are cut together to make a story: Yesterday's Enterprise (Fan Made)  Mash-up and recut of TNG and TOS episodes:
Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmoIvjnPDbI (9:52)
Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2a8Ci1PHrH8 (9:52)
Part 3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-KPAVXENa4 (1:23)

Until somebody steps forward to work on the recuts page, or create a recut website which I can work with, I will add new recuts at the bottom of the current page.

STAR TREK REVIEWED, ANNUAL MISSION ESSAY: YEAR 4.
Four years ago I began laying out this website.  There are now four fan film groups which I would classify has ‘highly active’... that is they produce more than one episode per year. More may be on the way.

In addition, Star Trek Continues has released its first episode, the only fan film which can be said to compete with Phase II for recreating the original TOS feel. Another very high end fan film, Star Trek: Secret Voyage, is promising, but seems to have an unrealistic financial plan. There have been a number of other exceptional efforts this year, including the short, Star Trek: Deception.

Just introduced, I have started giving new Audio releases Headlines. Headlines have been expanded since it has gotten less and less realistic for fan film fans to scan the entire website to find new, minor releases. Headlines will still not include teasers, trailers, pre-announced release dates or incomplete releases. Headlines still mean something has been released in final form. For the most part, the release also tells a complete story or finishes one. However, I have accepted the fact that audio is generally done in the form of an ongoing serial, and as long as the episode is a full story of sorts, it will get a Headline.

This year Star Trek Reviewed has primarily just added new films as they are released, old ones as they are discovered,, and reviews and commentary as they are found, and continued projects begun in prior years. An exception: A list of fan films which are based on The Doomsday Machine and placed under my listing of the TOS episode, "The Doomsday Machine." I would like to expand the links in the subwebsite on Pro Trek beyond reviews, adding links to fan films that reference a that episode. I also made many links to reviews of Star Trek Into Darkness.

The only reorganizations have been the addition of an incomplete page for fan films made with ship animations only, no people (we only hear the people... or maybe not even that) and a slight re-ordering of the listings of Fan Filmmakers who have not released films. I have marked out two-letter listing starting with A (like (AC)) to hold fan films which say they are active when asked but which show little actual results for a long time. I define ‘a long time’ inconsistently.

As always, I hope this website will continue to serve folk who would rather spend time watching Star Trek Fan Films than hunting for them. I also want to thank the many fan film makers who were kind enough to contact me about their releases, ensuring I and hundreds of others who depend on Star Trek Reviewed would not miss their work. Finally, I want to thank the many fan film makers who have provided me with posters and photos to illustrate their work.  For WHY STAR TREK REVEIWED and the three annual essays that followed, as well as the permanent home of this essay, see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/240.html

Headline News for April, 2013



April 28, 2013MAJOR NEW RELEASE from Star Trek: Dark Armada
(Adult fans, live action, green screens, some sets and some location shooting, CGI, Silver Age, Netherlands.) presents, "Nightfall."  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW0XKTysBBY (29:40).  For all of the films by Star Trek: Dark Armada, See  http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/80.html .

April 26, 2013.  The Star Trek: Invincible announcement has been moved to http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/133.html

April 22, 2013  TEMPORARY HEADLINE:  Project Potemkin has temporarily released a rough cut of a live action fan film made at Trek Trax Atlanta over the weekend of April 20-21, 2013.  "Closing Time."  People participated not only from Project Potemkin (Georgia, USA), but also from Starship Reliant (Newfoundland, Canada), Starship Farragut (Washington, D.C. region and Georgia) and the Audio drama, Starship Valkyrie, with makeup provided by a member of Phase II/New Voyages. (Upstate New York)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=200p84H2aUo  (5:16).  I do not ordinarily give Headlines to films that are not in final form, but the very unusual way this film was made (at a Trek Convention) made me decide to make an exception.  I have not, however, watched it and will not watch it until it is released in final form.

ALSO Newly released: from Improvised Star Trek, an improv comedy group from Chicago,
Hlchop! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2bjc6U0tjI (3:11)  This is a love song in Klingon... with the appropriate attitude for Klingons.  For more Star Trek comedy from Improvised Star Trek, mostly audio, see http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/130.html

ALSO new comedy short release:  Star Trek - Bad Days Season 2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8s9aXRL95E (3:11)  It's from Stan Lee.  Yes, that Stan Lee!  (Spiderman et al.)

Part 2 of 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URYmIfih2EA (12:04)
The second longest Fan Film series in Star Trek Fan Film history continues. This episode is slower than most, focusing on crew morale in the middle of a retreat in a war after a losing battle.
