NEW FILM – HOMECOMING
The newest Farragut adventure, “Homecoming,” is full of intrigue, comedy and romance. A 'decompression' story, it is loosely inspired by Star Trek The Next Generation episode "Family," and fans will get to see a more personal side of the Captain as he visits family from his home planet. There, Carter faces issues of personal trauma, family identity and ethical conundrums. We will meet new characters and a new alien race, as well as catch up with the Farragut regulars we already know and love. The screenplay was written and directed by Paul R. Sieber, who also penned our most recent and action-packed episode, "The Crossing" and the fan-favorite, "The Price of Anything."
I'm looking forward to The Crissong and Homecoming but I admit I am sooo excited they're taking the characters in to the movie era!
Apart from Potemkin it's long un-explored by fan films, and the fact that we have 6 episodes, 2 animations a few short films and a sprinkle of crossover appearances as a backstory for Farragut Forward makes the world of this crew significantly vast! We already know these characters.
Not to mention that Farragut have proven they can deliver the required quality to make the series well, I look forward to the TWOK era recreations!
As do I, I wish more fanfilms did the TWOK/TUC/Lost eras! I am excited to see their sets! With Forward, they are using a TWOK style sets, It will be interesting if they choose to go with the retro 70's graphics that were in the TWOK sets or with okudagrams.
I had a bit of a panic attack when I saw they were done after this... and then was very pleased when I figured out they were going for a movie-era thing.
Is there ANYONE else in the movies era right now, besides Potemkin? Tales From the Seventh Fleet was there, but it's long gone. Outpost is pre-TNG but way after the movies, and I believe that's also true of Star Trek: The Continuing Mission. Phase II keeps flirting with advancing to the movies era, but it's taking the transition slowly.
I wonder why it gets neglected.
There were two that fizzled away Lexington and Hathaway both looked promising but nothing ever released.
It will be interesting if the Forward sets will have the ability to be easily redressed to match a TNG era set. after-all the TMP bridge eventually became the TNG battle bridge and others in the first season.

Is there a point to this thread other than as a press release and photo drop? This is supposed to be a discussion board, and the Original Post (OP) usually features a topic for discussion.
Frankly, as-is this thread is a whole buncha nothin'.
Infraction issued to acman73 for spamming.
Is OP a bot? He's not even responding to posts.
He probably got the message and moved on.
Actually the purpose of this tread is just to draw some attention to Starship Farragut. It is not spam, it is not a bot. It is simple, I post things from our Facebook page as it is updated. We are working on a new episode called Homecoming. I am just trying to draw attention and get people to check out us out.
