Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

Starship Farragut has released their latest episode called "The Price of Anything". It is by far their best effort, and totally captures that TOS feel.

Saw it last evening at John's. It may be the single best Star Trek fan film I've watched.

This episode was very well done. The actors all did a fantastic job in their roles. The best Farragut episode to date. It really felt like a classic TOS episode. The script was well written, the camera work was excellent, and the FX work was outstanding!

Agreed on all counts. Michael Struck shared with me some of his "secret" effects work. His best work was on things you don't even notice. Truly remarkable.

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

I watched last night. Overall, I liked it. I had some issues (which I'll detail later when I've got more time) but for now, well done and congrats on another episode in the can!

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

Definitely one of the best projects to date.

My only regret is that Mike tends to not get enough screen time in Farragut's adventures, but that's probably just my personal impression because she's my favorite character.
OTOH one of my favorite story elements is "opportunities in life and what we make of them" and this adventure certainly did justice to that!

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

I will wait for the downloadable version as streaming has issues right now.

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

As compared to other fan films it's very good. It's not as good as World Enough and Time or The Tressaurian Intersection (even unfinished), but still better than most. I have specific comments, but I'll post them after more people have seen it as I don't want to color anyone's viewing experience.

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

I agree with Maurice. It's certainly the best the Farragut folks have done, but not quite on par as WEAT and TTI. I also feel it falls slightly short of really capturing the feel of TOS. I too have specific comments, but I'll withhold them until more people see it.

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

WEAT is the only fan film I think of as comparable to this one (Exeter is my favorite, but it is - as we continually lament - not finished). I'll admit to grading on a bit of a curve here because of the extent of professional involvement in all areas on WEAT.

The Farragut folks have pretty much built their production from the ground up from within a community of dedicated fans; I've watched them do it over the last six or seven years and I admire them greatly in that regard.

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

It's all a matter of taste, but I felt WEAT was a mess, and they can't even be bothered to finish TTI even after 10 years. I really feel this film captures that TOS feel better than anything else out there. IMHO

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

Oh WEAT has a ton of problems, as I've often pointed out. And I do admire what the Farragut folks have done to build up their production. They've grown spades from the earlier efforts.

They did a great job and this is their best outing yet. I'd like to see them continue to improve, which is where the majority of my feedback lies. This episode does nearly captures that TOS feel, but is just shy of fully doing so for me.

Re: Starship Farragut's "The Price of Anything"

This is clearly one of the best fan films ever produced. No doubt about it. I'm not inclined to compare it with Exeter or Phase 2 any more than I'm inclined to compare watermelons, cantaloupes, or honeydews. I like all three a LOT. This is clearly Farragut's best effort to date, and I'm happily content with that.

Oh, it's objectively provable that honeydews are the best kind of melon by any criteria.
