    Not a full fanfilm, but still damned impressive work.

    EDITED DUE TO OP FIX: Umm. That’s Interlude, not a Star Trek II anything. Suggest you edit your post and fix it

    Ah yes, I'd been this before. From a series perspective it undermines the Spacedock reveal in TSFS.

    Also, where are Kirk and Co. coming from? They beamed up to where to get that travel pod? Would they not just beam onto Spacedock? (Course, in TWOK why don't they just beam to the Enterprise in the first place?)

    Typical of fan videos whoever did this has not understanding of directional continuity. First the ship is going screen left, then screen right, then screen left, then...Argh! Fans! Spend a half hour reading something about the basics of cinematography.

    My main reaction is that not one CG shot looks like a plausible match for model photography, of which there is quite a bit of course in TWOK.

    Beyond that, most of the new shots lose the scale and weight of the ship by placing it much smaller in the frame than the original shots, the lighting is bland and the animation is dull and slow - except for one shot of the shuttle backing into the torpedo bay at about five times the speed I'd back into a parking space.
