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?
If you are then I am too because the resemblance jumped to my mind also ...

Excellent work, and I can't wait to see more.

One little nit: Angela Martine (Barbara Baldavin) was at communications in this episode. Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) was nowhere to be found.

I wonder why they didn't just show Uhura taking over for someone. but what was really odd is Kirk just left the bridge in a crazy state 10 mins before and then came back and suddenly everyone forgot he'd been acting crazy. Seems like they continued the visual of Turnabout Intruder but forgot the substance of the epsiode. Especially with McCoy acting so strange.

Both of those are the best as far as recreating the original characters.

Bones...more like Bozo the clown. Spock...an Asian Spock...really?

Some shots of him reminded me of Dr. Smith from Lost In Space.

Re: Star Trek Continues - First Vignette Released

I watched this again, only this time on my TV, and I have to say that I picked up detail that to me, actually gave it the look that very much resembled an episode of the original series. I have to give the lighting and camera guys credit.

I wasn't too sure of the portrayal of some of the iconic characters here, but having said that, I'd a similar reaction to Phase II once upon a time, and I think the actors there matured into their roles very well. As, I imagine, will the actors here.

To me, saying X or Y captured [fill in the Trek Character] properly or not is starting to get like saying whose Hamlet is best. I find room for multiple interpretations.

No good reason why not.

The "Bozo" thing was a cheap shot.

You're right...may as well make Sulu an African American, Chekov should be French and Uhura should be Spanish. After all...no good reason why not.
