Sorry, in the picture, thats not the USS Churchill. The Churchill is destroyed, and is a Miranda Class Starship.

The USS Achilles is pictured. Its an Achilles Class Starship, first seen in the game DS9: Dominion Wars.

Re: Star Trek: Dimensions Episode 1: SACRIFICE

A very professional production, especially for a first episode. Some minor differences in the recording quality of some of the voices, but I've heard worse. Sounds effects and music were very well done. A nice, full episode with a great cliffhanger ending. Sorry to see another Trek production (fan or otherwise) focussed on war, but your premise is different and interesting.

Some nitpicks:
  • Glad you didn't start with "Space...the final frontier"
  • Is it me, or did they abandon ship with a bit too little provocation? The Phasers were low- was there something else? I think the ship should have been a lot more beat up.
  • I like Bill Nye, but I seriously doubt his scientific acumen will be as revered in the 24th century as it is now... or was 10 years ago...
  • Don't care for the cutesey councilor. In fact, I find some of the crews' dialogue to be a little too familiar, especially on the bridge. I've always liked the intelligence and professionalism of Starfleet officers, and straying from that seems kind of un-Trek to me. But that's probably just me.
  • "... torture our guests..." should be "... torture our HOSTS..."
  • Aren't there any other outstanding Starfleet Captains to mention beside Sisco and Picard? (You also get Kirk and McCoy in there later). Starfleet is bigger than what we saw on TV.
  • The captain complains that he isn't an explorer or diplomat. I know most Trek fans these days like Trek for the fighting and explosions, but Trek, and Starfleet, are supposed to primarily be about exploration and diplomacy. War was supposed to be against 24th century humans' natures. DS9 remembered that in some of their best Dominion episodes.
  • "cowboy up"- too contemporary.
  • "aw, it's the least we can do for our fearless leader." She's talking to the CAPTAIN? Again, too cutesey, disrespectful and familiar.
  • It's LAKOTA not Lakotia.

Sorry- I really did enjoy it, and I look forward to future episodes.
I'm going to try and get a mention of the show on our next podcast.
