Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 3...

^^ My impression/understanding has been that this is a self-contained story that doesn't involve any Prime characters crossing over.

You know it's rather amazing that we're already getting Episode 3 soon and we got Episode 1 only about a year ago.

I hope they can keep the pace up. It really starts to feel like a series when you can get a new episode at least once every 90 days or so.

For a live-action fan production they are just rockin' them out.

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 3...

Their pace is really impressive. I wonder how long they can keep it up like that. I would like to see a "non" bottle show with some elaborate VFX. Those most likely take a lot longer to film and to postproduce.

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 3...

I don't think I would count on too elaborate effects or it wouldn't look like TOS anymore, something they seem big on maintaining.

That said I understand they want to do some planet stories. That can still be challenging because then it involves shooting outdoors and being able to find appropriate locales.

Honestly we are somewhat limited to when we can film due to the fact that the studio is not climate controlled and in the summer months its just too hot to film. Subsequently, we film in the fall and winter and spend the spring and summer on stories and set upgrades.

Well, in TOS, a lot of the planets weren't outdoors at all, haha. I wonder if they'd want to emulate that look as well. I can't think of a fan production that dared emulate the soundstage-planets of TOS.

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 3...

Modern computer f?x could allow them to do things that could have been on TOS only in a more laborious manner. It needs to be said that TOS could have done more elaborate things given a better budget than they had as well as sufficient lead time. We know they used very nice matte paintings and that kind of resource allows for all kinds of imagery. Today you can do that digitally while still having the same look seen on TOS.

I would think it should be possible to put some rudimentary interiors (or exteriors) together and dress them digitally. The hangar deck scene in "Lolani" was a good example. And, as I said, you can still maintain the TOS aesthetic. Perhaps they could also redress certain sets, as was done on TOS, that could allow them to have Starbase interiors or the interior of another ship.

Part of Exeter's first episode took place inside an underground city of Andoria... But if what you mean is more like TOS' Planet Hell soundstage which got redressed many times, but notable for The Cage's planet Talos 4, well...all of the Fan productions would probably create something like that if they had a 6 figure budget handy...

Yeah, I was imagining the Planet Hell kinds of planets when I made my remark.
Though I'm sure even a small partial set with glittery styrofoam rocks could be properly augmented with some good greenscreen work to look like a TOS planet, but with maybe some more realism than the original show permitted (more expansive, some clouds, etc).

Re: Star Trek Continues: Episode 3...

I'm not normally into fan productions, but I have to admit this one is pretty good so far.

As far as 'nailing the look' goes, I really noticed that when I had to go across the house for some reason, and on the way back, seeing the show on screen from a distance, it actually looks like the real thing!

Now that is awesome. And it answers a lingering question. There is no crossover involved. It's strictly a followup set in the Mirror Universe.

And the episode now has a title: "Fairest Of Them All."
