As much as I like this as a fan film, I actually wish it was set in a separate, original universe. Does this need to be a Star Trek fan film, not necessarily. I think it has everything to stand on its own. Just need to design their own, original ships. If they changed their uniforms slightly, removed the colors and just used black. Changed the familiar aliens to be like their original aliens, I think this could work better as a stand alone work.
I tried to show Junior some racism today and it was thwarted by the cops and Whitey.
Of course I'm a creationist. I believe man created god.
