I vote for the 2004 motion picture Encarta IV: Dark Hope. Though, I'm a bit partial . Amazingly, I think the visual effects hold up as well as episodes of Voyager that were airing around the same time.

None are really close, though some are pretty impressive. I also like "World Enough And Time" as well as the Farragut shows.

i think the animated farragut episodes are closer to TAS than other fanfilms are to the various live action trek shows.

I tend to agree with Dennis. And most fanfilm producers aren't so self-obsessed as to think otherwise. Contrary to what some may think, most of us are well-aware of our shortcomings.

I'd prefer "limits" to "shortcomings." Everything's a process.

Definitely PHASE II from 'World Enough and Time' onwards. Also agree on Farragut Animated.

Part of the fun for me is watching the various productions improve from show to show. Exeter is a great example. Compare "The Savage Empire" to what we've seen so far of "The Tressaurian Intersection" shows how many lessons were learned between productions.

Our first stint in 1999 is laughable compared to the last film...night and day.

I have to say a toss up between the sadly-unfinished Starship Exeter episode "The Tressaurian Intersection" and Phase IIs "World Enough and Time". Both truly outstanding.

My 2 credits.

Good topic!
I suppose the criteria would be - would this episode
(or webisode, as it were), be good enough to show
on network or even cable television, and keep its audience?
Changes the perspective a bit.

In all honesty, I think WEAT is the only one I've seen that comes close to that.
