I must admit I struggled to follow this one. At first I thought it was just because it was a rough cut and the edit was a little clunky, but in the end there seemed like a lot being shoehorned into the story. Between this and 'Torment of Destiny', there is such a stark contrast of New Voyages old and new. Super interesting to see as a fellow filmmaker. Someone on YouTube asked whether there was a scene missing that provided a bit of context for Pike's 'dressing down' of Kirk, and to be honest, that is how it seemed to me as well. Perhaps because it was a rough cut, the tension created through other means (music etc?) would have made Kirk's actions more dramatic to justify Pike's reaction. Otherwise, it just seemed uncalled for and the tone was off with the rest of the story. You don't need to yell someone to prove a point. Overall though, its a fun piece of work. Pulling off a fan film is no easy feat, certainly not at New Voyages level, and even though it wasn't completed, still very interesting and inspiring to watch.
