    Can anybody in-the-know confirm if we are still on schedule for a Feb 14th release for the next one? I really am greatly looking forward to it.

    Finally saw this. Technically impressive (I especially liked the unstable-looking Praxis in the Klingon sky), but the story ran out of momentum once they reached Kronos.

    I'm also disappointed that what began as a "real" Phase II (as in, the unmade 1970's sequel series) episode was turned into ENT-TOS-TNG Klingon continuity porn. I wanted to see what was originally planned for the Klingons before their TMP/TNG re-imaginings. I like my fanfic to ask "what if...?" rather than to connect the dots.

    What a great episode. Good pacing. Good use of supporting and guest characters. Very interesting story and fantastic graphics with a lot of really nice touches.

    The fist fight at the end put me in mind of a 1960s Batman fight. I was expecting a few POWS and THWAPPs. But now that I think about it - that's not a bad thing!

    It also was nice to see a mix of Klingon men and women both imperial and augmented but I also wish that it was possible to include more female Enterprise crew. I miss Chapel and Rand and it makes me sad that Ilia's role in the opriginal story gets handed over a yet another dude. It was great fun to see Peter take one for the team in the bar though.

    Very well done to everyone involved.

    Thanks! Everyone on the crew - pre, shoot and post production worked their butts off on this one!

    Rand appears in "Bread and Savagery". Chapel was cast but she morphed into a Danish scientist who is a product of Nazi genetic engineering. Not sure what's happened since last June, but you never know who's going to show up! (Ilia was changed because it's established by canon that she is not on the Enterprise until TMP.)

    Found it very enjoyable to watch (for some reason I can watch this much more than the actual TOS show).

    One of my favorite lines was when Kirk asks Peter to be a distraction and he just sort of glare :) Then when he returns saying he should get a reward or something like that: lol: (I'll admit my laugh for it is that I'm assuming that the character is still gay and thus unconformable for two reasons)

    They are probably very busy with their regular job(s), but I'm really starting to wonder when they are going to release 'The Holiest Thing'.

    I'm sure this webisode will be worth the wait, but it been over 2 months...


    I thought Kitumba was an interesting webisode.
    I think it's really great that the fan series Star Trek Phase II uses scripts from the Phase II series that never was.
    Both Kitumba and The Child are original script for Phase II, Kitumba was originally a 2-part episode and we all know TNG's first episode of season 2 The Child. That script was also based on the Phase II script.
    It is really fantastic that we now know how The Child was meant to be, thanks to the Phase II fan production!

    Greg posted a later update from James on the "Holiest Thing" thread.

    This one was really enjoyable. Admiral Sheehan was a highlight. If I hadn't already known Gil Gerard was in it, I would have been looking at him and thinking, "Where do I know that guy from?" But there's this one magical moment where he says "Nononono" and for a second he's totally Buck Rogers!

    Only thing is, I wish the front of his tunic could have been made just a little longer...
