That was great guys! Keep it up! I'm sure somebody will pick on the eyeline issues with Kirk in the corridor, but it's such a minor thing. Can't wait to see more.

Great Work! I got chills seeing Chris Doohan playing his father's character. I wish he had been cast in JJ's Trek as Scotty!

Re: Star Trek Continues - First Vignette Released

That was fantastic.
Vic did a great job in the subtleties of Kirk. the hands, the smirk, even the way he sat in the center seat. it's the little things that add up to a very nice overall performance.
What can I say about Chris? It was chilling to wonderful to watch his performance, and hearing his voice gave me goosebumps.
You're father would be proud.
Terrific job.
The whole cast, in what little we've seen so far, all turned in really solid performances, and the sets and costumes look beautiful.
I really can't wait to see more of this incarnation of TOS.

So great to see/hear Chris doing such a good job with his father's character. I also love Grant's Takei-voice.

...And am I crazy, or does the guy playing Kirk remind anyone else of Jack Lord?

Re: Star Trek Continues - First Vignette Released

Amazing... the lighting was simply fantastic... well directed, and certainly captured the feel of Trek in the late 60s.

GREAT performance by Vic Mignogna as Kirk as he really captures a lot of Shatnerisms without going overboard. Todd Haberkorn seems to have a nice feel for Spock, and Chris Doohan has Scotty down cold.

Great stuff guys!!!

Well done! Doohan is spot on! I really liked Kirk and Bones as well!

I can't wait for more of this.

Re: Star Trek Continues - First Vignette Released

The CG model of the Enterprise and the rendering are as good as any I've seen in a Trek fan film (or, for that matter, when the ship was created this way for those Star Trek: Enterprise episodes or the Remastered series.). Of course, every single version of the ship created by a different artist has its own little variations from the model as it appeared in TOS. But this is an excellent recreation and the lighting is very evocative of the original. Congrats to Gabe Koerner.

For a first effort - and a short vignette- this compares pretty well to any other Trek fan film out there so far. The performances are generally on a good level for fan films, and the lighting, camera work and general tech credits are fine. The costuming is about perfect, which is what one expects from John Broughton and his folks. And speaking of the Farragut Films crew and their dedicated labor, what we see of the sets here is stunning (full disclosure of bias: I did a little of the work on the bridge...a very little).

Good effort. I wish these guys well.
