Into the first five minutes now. Man it felt good to see a Constitution class refit again. As Scotty might say, "Aye, the Lexington is quite a beauty."

LOL I wouldn't know. Southerners actually say Potemkin pretty darn close to the Russian pronunciation.

And for those wanting a higher quality resolution than what YouTube provides, here's the Vimeo link:

Woops! Sorry about that. With the exception of the Enterprise-A, who will always be my favorite, I see all Constitution class ships as a thing of beauty. Especially Potemkin.

I'll write a review a little later, but I want to say how refreshing it is to watch a movie era film. In addition I really like the Captain. He's not a cookie cutter copy of Kirk or Picard. It's one of the reasons why I love Intrepid as much as I do and Hidden Frontier before it. The characters were original. There's no captain more original than Captain Daniel Hunter played by Nick Cook. Captain Gregory would be a close second.

As far as The Night The Stars Fell...loved it, Nicely done. I won't spoil the ending, but I was glad to see it end the way it did. A total surprise. If this fan film stays in production, I think maybe this episode could be what Space Seed was to TOS.

As far as a score, relative to other fan films, I give this a 7/10 +1 for that great ending, for a total of 8. Thanks Potemkin team, you just earned a new fan.

Pardon me if I've missed this previously, but what native resolution do you shoot at?

This episode was shot in 480p, iirc, using the Panasonic. Future episodes/vignettes have also been shot on a Sony Handycam at various resolutions.

Maurice, here's why I like Vimeo over You Tube:


Both are captured at 480p, and yet the Vimeo looks a whole lot better to my untrained eye.

And Halliwell, thanks again!

That's really surprising, especially since I uploaded the same source file to both sites. @(#*$&^ YouTube!!!

Re: Star Trek -- Project: Potemkin "The Night the Stars Fell from the

When permitted by the filmmaker, I like downloading the episodes best, Vimeo Second, and then You Tube, but I let the episode load as much as I can before viewing. Know this about You Tube: It doesn't necessarily pick the highest possible resolution when you view it. It could be that you could set your You Tube video to a 480 resolution. When I didn't touch the resolution on TNTSFFTS, the You Tube video was set on 'auto' and downgraded me to 144 from 480. In fact, I tried to move it up to 480, and it wouldn't do it for me.

Actually, I had deliberately set the resolution to 480. I always slide it to the top when viewing an episode on line. Those screencaps are comparing apples to apples.

J. Alec West, who runs our Mirror/Download site, is setting up the episode for download in a variety of forms. It should be on-line for download in a couple of days.
