The idea that fan films cannot be creative could only come from somebody with a very limited view of fan films. I invite you to come to Star Trek Reviewed and watch the following:
Steam Trek:
Stone Trek:
Star Trek Aurora:
Turkish Star Trek:
Stalled Trek:

I have limited myself to what I call "Golden Age" films... but there are many more unique and creative efforts.
Get back to us when you have something that is not a comedy.
Star Trek Aurora is not a comedy. But I'm sure you'll find some reason to eliminate that, too.

In audio Trek, look at Star Trek Outpost.

In Silver Age Trek, many people think the forth episode of Encarta is what Voyager should have been.

Star Trekz Empire tells the story from the Klingon point of view:

The fact that you had to eliminate comedies shows you acknowledge that some fan films are very creative and original. I'm sure you'll further acknowledge it by making up reasons to eliminate more of these.

Every time you say a fan film doesn't count you prove yourself wrong again.
Is that the same logic as "when a woman says no, she really means yes"?

I know Aurora isn't a comedy (your link leads elsewhere, btw).

These comedies and parodies may be good, but when I think of Star Trek, I don't think of comedy. Humour and fun, yes.

If a Star Trek comedy/parody is what you try and sell as creative, then I'd much rather stick to Phase II and Continues and Exeter and all the other fan productions that try to tell good stories within the confines of the setting of TOS - and usually they are doing a great job.

You probably see it as one, but this isn't an attack on these comedies. I enjoy them. But they aren't a what I would like the fan productions try and do if they were allowed a free rein by CBS.

And, but that's probably just me, I like to see Kirk and co. in these stories not some other characters. I enjoyed TNG, DS9 (which I think is the best of the 24th century shows), VOY and ENT, but I'm done with them.

Phase II and Continues give me a lot of what I like; they make my fan-heart pretty happy - despite my whining in this thread.
