Re: "Pilgrim Of Eternity" - is it good enough?

I just watched it. I'm really liked it and next time I watch "Who Mourns for Adonais?" I'm going to have this in the back of my mind similar to watching "Space Seed" and WoK. It's a continuation for me.

I know I'm going to get lots of rejection for this, but I enjoyed it a lot more than that movie that came out in 2009.

He was exactly right.

If you're a big fan of TOS, I don't understand why you wouldn't jump at the chance to watch a fan-produced series in that era. There's no way to know BEFORE you watch it that you don't like it, after all.

I keep up with Barbreader's list and watch them all. Some of them are real stinkers, but there's always the expectation that I might enjoy the next one. And there are hardly any in which I don't enjoy something.

Re: "Pilgrim Of Eternity" - is it good enough?

I liked "Pilgrim of Eternity" a lot. I think it felt like the Star Trek I used to watch from my grandparent's rug more than any other fan film I've seen.

But I don't have a personal continuity.

I wish Trek fan films weren't so obsessed about continuity and making 100%-accurate uniforms and sets. It only emphasizes that these are not Shatner, Nimoy, Kelley and the rest that we're watching.

Oh, I don't agree. Seeing the old sets and costumes again is a big part of the fun!

Re: "Pilgrim Of Eternity" - is it good enough?

The Phase II folks seem more inclined to deviate more. Part of that I get from how the f/x are done which (as I mentioned earlier) make me think of TOS-R or a more contemporary production. The STC folks look more like recreating the original ambiance and the f/x, while albeit clean and finished, are definitely meant to evoke the original look.

Casting definitely has an impact. The only one on the Phase II cast that really works for me is Chekov. I just can't buy any of the others as the original characters. That said the STC isn't perfect, but no cast really can be. I will say in general I prefer the STC cast to the JJverse cast. Larry Nemecek isn't bad for what he's doing, but he just doesn't really evoke McCoy. Grant Imihara needs to dial it back some. Haberkorm needs to have his hair fixed.

Context matters too. I'll watch the Phase II productions for the stories because otherwise there's a lot that I find distracting. The STC production, so far, just floors me in how much it feels like the original series. But both productions generally respect the original source materiel.

Hey, yeah, that's a good point about "Adonais." People who read the novels must have similar experiences when they tie in to episodes.

And I too "enjoyed" Pilgrim way more than the current movies. But many people loved 'em, so that's fine too.

Try The Further Adventures of Star Trek Unity, http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/90.html from England. Set after the Dominion war and a conflict with the Borg that was so expensive the Federation could not afford uniforms, this follow-up series to a teen trek series (Star Trek Unity) is the work of film school students in England. It has used the Iconians to explain introducing ideas from other sci fi franchises, from Stargate to Dr. Who.

How could the Federation not afford uniforms in the age of replicators?

Sounds like they wrote in a reason to justify the wardrobe department's shoestring budget.

Re: "Pilgrim Of Eternity" - is it good enough?

The original Star Trek Unity was started when they ranged in age from 11 to 14. The series has continued as they have become adults... I strongly encourage all who do not madly love watching fan films (which means almost everyone but me) to start with "The Further Adventures..." rather than their original series, even though I frankly think Luke Sutton could write better stories at 13 than most people can at 30. The kid series literally sometimes used Crayon drawing for space battles. The current series uses uniforms, greens screens, and has had interaction between animated aliens and live action. The technical growth in this series is the most in any Star Trek Fan Film series.
