Star Trek Phase II- how can I watch this?

I just discovered this, and it looks SO cool, but when I try to watch it online, it pauses for 3 minutes every other minute... it's makin' me nuts! Is there a place I can just buy a DVD of it to play? I saw a place to download it, but it has VCD-PAL-NTSC-BIT-TORRENT-STREAM...all this means nothing to me-

HELP!!!!

Dude! You just discovered us? Why not simply take a knife and plunge it into my heart?

I'm glad you found us. Yes, our delivery methods are clunky. The drawback of shooting in HD is that it requires a lot of bandwidth, so you're going to get a lot of buffering. You can click on "pause" and wait for the whole thing to load while it's paused. Once it's all downloaded, click play again and watch it without the buffering. Or you can watch the episodes on YouTube--although that's not really ideal either.

Or PM me. I can probably hook you up with something better.

And, of course, there's the Fan Productions forum with all the associated Star Trek Phase II topics. There's some good reading there.

I've only been posting here since I got the TOS Remastered & the new movie came out... sorry.
Anyway, you just posted on the other thread, and I figured anyone who so *gets* Trek, I should look at whatever they link to, so I clicked and WOW!!!!!

D'oh!!! That's what my Son said to do.... he's right again. Eleven-year-old know-it-all...
I guess I'm just a bit impatient- the stuff just looks so gorram excellent!!!!

And, of course, there's the Fan Productions forum with all the associated Star Trek Phase II topics. There's some good reading there.
I will peruse!

On the small bit we watched, my Son said, "OMG, they're DESTROYING the Enterprise!!! I don't like this!" (He hated that part in Star Trek III) I think he'll get into it though.

Thanks!!!!

Well, with an eleven year old kid, you might want to start wtih our Sulu episode "World Enough and Time" before you jump in with "Blood and Fire." (I'm not sure what "Blood and Fire" would be rated if we actually had these things rated officially.) I'm not sure I'd let my ten year old daughter watch "Blood and Fire" just yet. But "World Enough and Time" is fine.

And be forewarned: there are Star Trek fans who actually don't believe that I or we at Phase II "get" Star Trek. I don't agree, but I don't want to be dismissive of their valuable opinions.

Re: Star Trek Phase II- how can I watch this?

GSchnitzer, thanks for getting me going on that; I just watched the first ep, and it was delightful! I was wondering if there is a digital copy for iPod; or if there is a download I can Handbrake into one. I just watched the episode at the website. I didn't have any trouble with it loading, though.

What did you think of the writing? Very not bad, as John Spartan would say!

Well, I hope no one will take this amiss, but I was laughing with delight all the way through it. So many fun things! My eyes about popped out when I saw Barbara Luna -- and William Windom! The music, the colors, the energy of the cast and production crew -- it was pure pleasure.

Yes--and that's just the *crappy* episode. You should watch the good ones.

(We actually love *all* our children--including the ones that are somewhat handicapped.)

We're aware that our fan-based episodes can be a bit of an acquired taste. But if you can feel the love we pour into every frame, it's all worth it to us.

Can you believe it's not a for-profit production???
The very essence of our inevitable future of co-operative effort!
OOps! Don't mean to piss off strident Capitalist Starfleet peeps with High-up Ferengi ties....

GS, thanks -- I did see that; thanks! ...I was wondering if there are any that aren't in pieces.

And yes, I can certainly feel the love; it's wonderful.

Not it pieces? Yeah we have them somewhere. I'll check with our IT guys and see if I can find who might be hosting the full, un-broken-down files. (They are just so darn huge and unwieldy.)

I have the same problem. Their website is useless. Fortunately, there's this thing called "Youtube". There, you have to watch an episode in something like eight parts, but at least, you can watch it.
