    It really does seem like a lost Sulu because, I believe, all the other actors are playing new characters. There is no recasting so this feels like it could be a true spin-off.

    That is correct. No iconic roles were recast for this. All of the characters in the short film are new, with the exception of Sulu. Although Admiral Nogura was never featured on screen in any of the movies, he was mentioned in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. This fan-film will be that character's first appearance on screen (played by James Shigeta).

    I have just set up a new Vimeo page devoted to Yorktown. Over the next few months we will be posting new material on this site:

    At the beginning of the film, the crew wear TOS (season 3) shirts. For those uniforms, we asked Joseph Kerezman to design the Yorktown shirt badge, and he didn't disappoint!

    All of these moon shots were added to the film this week by Neo FX, to make it look like the characters are actually on another planet. Original film grain from the Yorktown film was overlaid across the moons so that they blend in perfectly with the original footage.

    Nice. Are you going to apply the same grain to the newly shot material?

    Gotta agree here -the visual effects work here is excellent. I expect no less from Neo F/X, but it's really nice to see all the same!

    from the star trek Wikia entry on this film:

    Having escaped capture by the Klingons, a damaged Starfleet reconnaissance probe crashes undetected on the planet Pahl III. Hikaru Sulu, serving as first officer on the retrofitted USS Yorktown, is sent by Admiral Nogura on a secret mission to help locate the missing spy drone. In order to prevent a catastrophic war from igniting with the Klingons, the USS Yorktown (under the command of Captain Bradley Frame) races against time to quickly find the lost drone, with orders to conceal its existence. At the same time, a terrorist group called S.H.A.R.K. discover the drone's location, and plot to steal the device and use it for their own nefarious means.

    I like how the moons move relative to each other.

    S.H.A.R.K. = Sol Heritage Armed Resistance Korps. They are a terrorist group that want to drive aliens away from Earth and the Sol star system. All of the S.H.A.R.K. scenes were filmed back in 1985/86.

    Thanks for the background info, Captain Atkin. Are you guys doing any "retconning" to tie S.H.A.R.K. back to Peter Weller's character in that Enterprise two parter from season four? Or is S.H.A.R.K. a fringe group of its own?

    Re: "Yorktown: A Time to Heal" - Official thread for the Sulu fan film

    There is nothing to tie S.H.A.R.K. to Peter Weller's character, John Frederick Paxton, in the film (per say). It does tie in nicely though to the goals that Paxton had in Enterprise. There is one line about Colonel Green being an influence on the S.H.A.R.K. members in the film, so that is certainly one way to tie the two groups together. The core beliefs of both groups were influenced by the same man.
