December 25, 2013Christmas Find. (aka Find No. 42).    Star Trek: Encounter At Outpost Alpha Omega.  Christian analogy uses Trek for good v. evil.  Posted April 2011, but was not new then.  Church project.  This is Kid Trek.  Uniforms, rudimentary sets.  Sound quality weak at times, good at other times.  They say it's a film with a message, but I confess the message eluded me until they expressly stated that message, which equated the Federation and Star Fleet with Jesus and the Kingons with the devil.  Mixes original shots with remixed shots from TOS TV and movies. (21:08)
You Tube Channel:  For more Select Star Trek Film Projects for School or Church, see

December 20, 2013Introducing Filmmakers Who Produce CGI Sequences Without Visible Humans.   For the most part, this blog will not list each film, (in many cases there are hundreds of films) but only link to the You Tube or similar channel of the artist who created and posted the films.  Artists are listed in alphabetical order by screen name.  New finds will not be given headlines, nor will new releases be announced on the blog, but I am open to working with somebody who wishes to create a website which does a better job on these works.  Please contact me if you are that person.  In the meanwhile, I will add new filmmakers as I find them, inserting them in alphabetical order, along side the ones already listed and linked.

Find No. 41Star 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)  For more Short Fan Films see

December 3, 2013.    Crossover Film No. 3. Star Trek/Star Wars/Dr. Who Trek (1:30)  For more Franchise crossover Fan Films see

Spooftakular No. 40.   Star Trek X Generation, worst fan film.  Blog 181  The uniforms say Golden Age, but the characters say Silver age... I could just have put it under "Really, really bad stuff" but I don't think it's as bad as the stuff there.  It's more like a 1 than a zero.
Part 1 (8:31)
Part 2 (5:30)

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.
