I just saw the premiere at Phoenix Comicon. While I had a couple of minor nits with the story, the acting, sets and production values are top notch. Excellent work!

Just finished watching it on Youtube. Astoundingly good for a first episode, and I'm pumped for the next one. I really enjoyed it, and I think they did a great job of capturing the feel of classic Trek.

I swear, Chris Doohan is possessed by his dad's ghost!

Kind of like Karl Urban is possessed by De Kelley...

Oh, and Marina Sirtis as the computer voice? Brilliant casting choice!

Nice to see Michael Forest again. Have to admit I need to rewatch as the on-again, off-again hairpiece threw me as it came sorta out of nowhere in sickbay (the first time, iirc). Strong -- has hair; weak -- balding, I suppose.

You had Jamie Bamber...Apollo from Battlestar Galactica in this thing? Wow! Nice bit of trick casting!

That was pretty good. I may post more after I mull it, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The TOS episode with Apollo wasn't a favorite of mine, but this was a good follow-up!

Initial thoughts:
Vic's got the Kirk swagger and mannerisms, and sometimes I thought I was seeing Shatner. His voice itself threw me a bit. Same with Spock, but I figure it's just a matter of getting used to.

Mr. Doohan brings the warm and fuzzy feelings!

Ship's counselor in TOS? Shows promise! (If bare-breasted Kirk told her to turn around while he changed, would she sneak a peek still, and would fans here be up in arms about sexism? ;))

And that computer voice sounds familar! Loved it.

Effects were great, in that they were good! By that I mean there was care to remain consistent with the look and feel of the original series.

I'm sure I'll revisit with a more critical eye at a later time, but for now, let's just say I want to see more. :techman:

Re: Star Trek Continues "Pilgrim of Eternity"
Great job folks. Solid cast, excellent production values, and the cinematography and lighting was spot on (maybe one or two quibbles about certain shot selections).

Looking forward to seeing what's coming out down the road.

Re: Star Trek Continues "Pilgrim of Eternity"
As much as I love the Phase II offerings this was easily the most complete Star Trek fan film I have seen to date.

Between the solid story, set pieces, sound, and acting it will be hard to top for another production just from a professional look.

While Phase II look almost TV ready this felt like an actual studio shot episode of Trek.

Re: Star Trek Continues "Pilgrim of Eternity"
I was afraid that people were just waiting to tear this apart, no matter how good it actually was, because of their personal feelings or biases. Not to mention that Paramount and Skydance spent $190 million making a film and that was still torn to shreds by fans. But I think that STC has stood and delivered. Everyone has their own opinion and personal preferences when it comes to any production. But, this production has made it difficult indeed for the petty minded to be petty.

"Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year's time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody. No, let us devote our life to worthwhile actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings" - Andre Maurois

Re: Star Trek Continues "Pilgrim of Eternity"
The cinematography is amazing in this. Phase II looks like video, and lighting, colors and framing are off in it many times, but this looks like it's been filmed in the 60s and then remastered for blu ray like TOS-R. Excellently done.

And again, that Shatner Kirk is amazing. He's got his mannerisms down to a tee. That's very nice for a change.
