That looked quite good, I contacted them about a year ago but alas no reply. They' were in Birmingham UK, and the bridge did look good.

Few hours to the news now folks...
Sorry Danlav05, I must have missed that somehow. I've not been on here in years. I love it when someone or a group builds a set, I love the look so it'll be interesting to see what they've come up with.

Unfortunately our set ended up being most of a local councils bonfire.

Whoa welcome back! I know this is off topic, but what happened to your fanfilm? is it going to be released someplace?

they could always contact this person and see if his bridge is available?

WHY and HOW did I never hear about this? This had gotta go to a fan film.

What do you mean by 'buttoned-up'?
J.
Meaning the set didn't have wild walls that could be moved so that the camera could shoot into the set from outside.
Ah! No it was screwed together top to bottom, front to back. Took some doing getting it apart as well! The studio walls were only half a metre behind the set anyway.



Okay, Johnny... Dude, if you're not gonna finish this thing, then please post as much imagry as you can. I LOVE this production. I can't even find the images that used to be on the Hyperion thread anymore. It was great stuff. Loved all of it. The set building pics were great. The combadge fabrication was great. The raw ship models..great.

Yep, officially don't like it.. ah well.
Why is it the majority of fan productions feel it necessary to remove the familiarity from whatever they produce? ie: banding on uniforms, or combadge alterations? I get the same feeling with things like that as I do when I see a wobbly set. :/

I never understood why people complained so much about fan productions... you'd think they paid to watch them or something.

You'd also think that they had to watch them. Fan films won't affect the future of Star Trek and you don't have to watch them. So any complaints should be constructive. Then the productions can be improved, the viewers will enjoy it more, and everyone will be happy.

Because if you put something out for public approval, expect praise AND critisim. And I don't think there's a great deal of complaining going on about fan productions, it's just the negative comments are more likely to get disagreed with.

If someone says 'Great!' no one bats an eye-lid.
However say 'I hate this!', and everyone rally's.

Even so, my general critism is that fan productions change what star trek looks like, and therefore I tend to lose the familiarity, closely followed by my interest.

I'm not angry about it, I just have my view... and I enjoy productions that fit my views of what star trek should be.

All the best.

Well, given enough time, actual canonical Star Trek productions change what Star Trek looks like, too. Fan productions don't have a corner on the market for making changes in the Star Trek universe. After nerarly fifty years, the Star Trek universe has changed--sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically.

And, for that matter, after fifty years, even real universes change, too. I'd be surprised if the Star Trek universe exists in some kind of statis chamber--impervious to the effects of time.

Its true that even the cononical star trek will change with time, though with fan productions the longevity is not necessarily gauranteed and coincidentily is more difficult to become familiar with characters, ships, environment, especially if there are changes to what is expected from a certain era. And that's where my reservation lies.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Two new additions to the cast:

We are pleased to announce that actress Larissa Gomes (Saw VI, Saw 3D) and actress/stunt performer Tarah Paige (Make It or Break It, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) have joined the Renegades cast!

Larissa joins the Renegades cast as T'Leah, a beautiful but deadly Romulan assassin.

Tarah joins the Renegades cast as Crystal "C.C." Petronia, a former Starfleet Officer now running with the Renegade crew.

Larissa Gomes
Tarah Paige

I noticed that Tarah has had extensive stuntwork experience. I'm wondering if they were intentionally looking for a stuntwoman for that role.

Absolutely not true. TPTB attribute the return to the TOS Enterprise (JJ Trek) to the popularity they saw in TOS fan films.
