    They are in reality totally different productions using the same facility and a few cross-overs in the crew but that's the only association between the two productions.

    My guess is their Mirror Universe episode will be more in keeping with TOS than DS9 after the first couple of mirror eppies.

    Star Trek Continues and Vic Mignogna are referenced in the recently released These Are The Voyages: TOS Season 2. The reference is on page 115 in connection to "Who Mourns For Adonais?" and Vic being moved by the episode and years later reaching out to Michael Forrest to ask him to reprise his role of Apollo for STC's followup "Pilgrim Of Eternity."

    I have enjoyed both the vignettes and episodes so far. I am looking forward to more as I support any fan production that does the work.

    That's a pretty bold statement to make about an episode that isn't even made yet. Can't we wait until a production is finished and we've seen it before making sweeping proclamations about its quality?

    Whatever they do I think the execution will be fine. I just have some questions about the subject matter. That said I istened in on a recent podcast with the director of the episode and the hint seems to be that it's a self-contained story without direct connections or reference to other productions. Their reasoning is that if this story had been done in 1969 there would be nothing outside of TOS to reference.I'm also getting the feeling that they might be doing an episode set entirely within the Mirror Universe and basically picking up where they left of in TOS after the Mirror Kirk returns to his own universe.

    If this is the angle they're taking then I'm beginning to feel more positive.

    The two full-length films so far have been good. I'm hopeful. And if I am wrong, well, he who never makes a klunker has probably never experimented.

    Star Trek Continues has become the stand-out example, I think, of how the fan films (well, the ongoing ones anyway) should continue to proceed.

    While that's a nice anecdote, it's hardly worth mentioning, given what a hack job that book turned out to be.

    I think the forth-coming episode will be fun and as I said previously; I believe it will be our best; not only that, I believe it will be by far our best. I am super excited about it! There are going to be some real fun surprises and also a few special guests that we all know . . . :)

    I just watched Lolani this morning and really enjoyed it.
    I was glad to see a TOS story (even if it is just a fan series) address the whole Orion Slave Girl thing. I've always been a little bothered by how casually they seemed to treat it in the series.
    It was really well written, and most of the cast gave good performances.
    I was a little shocked by just how dark the ending was.
    My only minor complaint was that I had a bit of trouble understanding Lou Ferigno, but I understand that is due to issues he has no control over, so I don't hold it against him, or anyone else involved.

    If you watch it directly on the STC page, you can have subtitles by clicking the CC button. Hope that helps!

    Apologies if this has been brought up already, but according to IMDB, Fiona Vroom will be playing a "Green Girl" in Star Trek Beyond, which I think is very cool :)

    I hope Fiona Vroom is cast as an educated Lolani-type Orion and has some intelligent lines. (Probably not.)
