Into the first five minutes now. Man it felt good to see a Constitution class refit again. As Scotty might say, "Aye, the Lexington is quite a beauty." :)

It's that damn accent of his makes "Lexington" sound just like "Potemkin"....

LOL I wouldn't know. Southerners actually say Potemkin pretty darn close to the Russian pronunciation. :D

Woops! Sorry about that. With the exception of the Enterprise-A, who will always be my favorite, I see all Constitution class ships as a thing of beauty. Especially Potemkin.

I'll write a review a little later, but I want to say how refreshing it is to watch a movie era film. In addition I really like the Captain. He's not a cookie cutter copy of Kirk or Picard. It's one of the reasons why I love Intrepid as much as I do and Hidden Frontier before it. The characters were original. There's no captain more original than Captain Daniel Hunter played by Nick Cook. Captain Gregory would be a close second.

As far as The Night The Stars Fell...loved it, Nicely done. I won't spoil the ending, but I was glad to see it end the way it did. A total surprise. If this fan film stays in production, I think maybe this episode could be what Space Seed was to TOS.

As far as a score, relative to other fan films, I give this a 7/10 +1 for that great ending, for a total of 8. Thanks Potemkin team, you just earned a new fan.

Pardon me if I've missed this previously, but what native resolution do you shoot at?

Thanks, Halliwell! We really appreciate your feedback, and I'll pass it along to the cast and crew!

This episode was shot in 480p, iirc, using the Panasonic. Future episodes/vignettes have also been shot on a Sony Handycam at various resolutions.

Maurice, here's why I like Vimeo over You Tube:

Both are captured at 480p, and yet the Vimeo looks a whole lot better to my untrained eye.

And Halliwell, thanks again!

That's really surprising, especially since I uploaded the same source file to both sites. @(#*$&^ YouTube!!!

When permitted by the filmmaker, I like downloading the episodes best, Vimeo Second, and then You Tube, but I let the episode load as much as I can before viewing. Know this about You Tube: It doesn't necessarily pick the highest possible resolution when you view it. It could be that you could set your You Tube video to a 480 resolution. When I didn't touch the resolution on TNTSFFTS, the You Tube video was set on 'auto' and downgraded me to 144 from 480. In fact, I tried to move it up to 480, and it wouldn't do it for me.

Actually, I had deliberately set the resolution to 480. I always slide it to the top when viewing an episode on line. Those screencaps are comparing apples to apples.

J. Alec West, who runs our Mirror/Download site, is setting up the episode for download in a variety of forms. It should be on-line for download in a couple of days.
