Voyage Trekkers - Comedy Web Series
 
Hi everyone! I'm making a web series called "Voyage Trekkers", which is a comedy love-letter to Star Trek, about the misadventures of a Captain and his crew. Our tag line is "These are the voyages that don't make the captain's log."

The basic premise of the show is dropping in during the absolute worst moments of their adventures, the events that they're all going to agree upon to strike from the official records.

If you have a chance, we just released the trailer on YouTube, let me know what you think! We're aiming for releasing ten episodes this summer. Thanks!

You have been added to my listing of Star Trek Fan Filmmakers who have not yet released an episode or full story. http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/143.html see (T).

This appears to be a space comedy, but it does not look like a Star Trek Fan film. It sounds more generic. Am I wrong?

Thanks guys.

Barbreader, that's right, it's not a DIRECT Star Trek parody. I wanted to aim just a little to the side so we could have fun with sci-fi in general, and also to avoid all ready trodden material, but it's about 85% Trek. Probably 10% old school Flash Gordon ... :)

We're aiming to release our first episodes this summer, in just a few months!

This looks like it may have possibilities.

"Listen up...we represent the Galactic Union. So I don't care how ugly these aliens are..I don't care what they smell like..I don't care how stupid their culture is..We're gonna keep it professional." :rommie:

I'll definitely be giving it a look!

This week's Fan Film Friday column reviews the final three episodes of Voyage Trekkers' first season of 10 vignettes. In a fascinating twist, the finale allows you to pick the conclusion(s) you want to see. If you want to watch an independent production series that is actually funny, check out Voyage Trekkers:
