speaking of which, I'm kind of surprised that STC has managed to whip out 3 épisodes in the last year and a half and Farragut has stalled on their one scheduled outing. Surprised since, y'know, both are under the same production house?
They are in reality totally different productions using the same facility and a few cross-overs in the crew but that's the only association between the two productions.

My guess is their Mirror Universe episode will be more in keeping with TOS than DS9 after the first couple of mirror eppies.

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 2 "Lolani"...

Here is a Trek FM podcast talking with James Kerwin and Chris White about working on STC's Episode 3. http://trek.fm/continuing-mission/co...continues.html

What came out is, yes, it's definitely a Mirror Universe story. The target date for release is about June 15th. And apparently there are no direct references to anything outside of TOS.

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 2 "Lolani"...

Star Trek Continues and Vic Mignogna are referenced in the recently released These Are The Voyages: TOS Season 2. The reference is on page 115 in connection to "Who Mourns For Adonais?" and Vic being moved by the episode and years later reaching out to Michael Forrest to ask him to reprise his role of Apollo for STC's followup "Pilgrim Of Eternity."

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 2 "Lolani"...

I have enjoyed both the vignettes and episodes so far. I am looking forward to more as I support any fan production that does the work.

Well they've confirmed it will be a Mirror Universe story.

I have very mixed feelings about this. So far I liked the direction STC was going, but revisiting the past again so soon after revisiting Apollo in "Pilgrim Of Eternity" is questionable. The MU has been done to death in DS9 and ENT and most of that was a waste of time. DS9's first MU story was fine, but the rest were totally pointless. The ENT story's sole redeeming element was that it was entirely in the MU with its characters, but a lot of it was continuity porn.

Another crossover of characters would be tired and creatively pointless. The only way I could see this as interesting is if they manage a story set entirely in the MU with its characters and without any crossover and continuity porn.
Always one step forward and two steps back for fan productions. They made a big leap with their last episode and now they've fallen back on the same ol' fan film/fiction tropes.
That's a pretty bold statement to make about an episode that isn't even made yet. Can't we wait until a production is finished and we've seen it before making sweeping proclamations about its quality?

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 2 "Lolani"...

Whatever they do I think the execution will be fine. I just have some questions about the subject matter. That said I istened in on a recent podcast with the director of the episode and the hint seems to be that it's a self-contained story without direct connections or reference to other productions. Their reasoning is that if this story had been done in 1969 there would be nothing outside of TOS to reference.I'm also getting the feeling that they might be doing an episode set entirely within the Mirror Universe and basically picking up where they left of in TOS after the Mirror Kirk returns to his own universe.

If this is the angle they're taking then I'm beginning to feel more positive.

The two full-length films so far have been good. I'm hopeful. And if I am wrong, well, he who never makes a klunker has probably never experimented.

Star Trek Continues has become the stand-out example, I think, of how the fan films (well, the ongoing ones anyway) should continue to proceed.

While that's a nice anecdote, it's hardly worth mentioning, given what a hack job that book turned out to be.

I think the forth-coming episode will be fun and as I said previously; I believe it will be our best; not only that, I believe it will be by far our best. I am super excited about it! There are going to be some real fun surprises and also a few special guests that we all know . . .
