Here's a trailer they premiered at Comic Con this weekend: http://youtu.be/TpIpykYuhB8

Even keeping in mind that this stuff is all still unfinished, I have to say it looks kind of bad. I guess I was expecting something that's at least on the level of Star Trek Phase II, but this looks far more amateurish than that.
Yeah that looks pretty bad.

Wow, it takes a lot for me to think something looks bad, and that does look bad. I know this isn't a big budget project, but the effects in this are pretty bad. I've seen a lot of other webseries with better effects.

Well, that's disappointing. (And I'm not talking about the visual effects, which, for a low budget project, are passable if not particularly good.)

The effects get better as it goes on - I swear I saw some kind of clipping in the end of that ramp launch sequence.

The acting matches the writing. I'll just leave it at that.

Re: "Space Command"

I believe this is not actual footage from the show, which I don't believe has started shooting yet. It looks like auditions and screen tests and in-works effects shots.

I suspect they may have felt they had to show something since it's been a year since their successful Kickstarter campaign, but I think this is too low quality to have been screened at this point.

Re: "Space Command"

According to the latest Project Update, principal photography hasn't started, so this has to be stuff done especially for Comic-Con and maybe test footage and audition footage. The special effects look kind of Babylon 5-ish, which is fine with me. There's really not much there yet to form an opinion on.

Re: "Space Command"

I am going to reserve judgment for there next trailer. Yes, this teaser was not very good but I will give it a pass because they probably were trying to get something quickly together for Comic Con. It is not a great first impression but the jury is still out as they say.

Seeing what you guys just posted does make me a little more willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Re: "Space Command"

I do wonder if it would have looked different if Drexler were still with the project.

Those early effects look like they are still from the time when Drexler was involved.

Re: "Space Command"

Still I don't think that trailer would have pass Doug's approval.

Will, in 50 years, be thread talking about Drexler's vision for Space Command? Like there are threads about Roddenberry's vision for Trek?
