$162,000 is an impressive sum to raise for this sort of thing; why on earth did they set the goal so high, though? $200,000 seems unreachable -- not to mention excessive, for this sort of thing. Tim Russ is a capable filmmaker; why not raise that much and produce an independent feature suited to that budget?
Not sure the "Star Trek following" needs to be rebuilt. If the success of Abrams movie (not to mention the rest of the franchise on home video and on television) is any indication, its doing fine.
