The writing, acting, and production quality are all professional, if inexpensive. It builds on concepts and ideas that begged to be returned to in prior Treks, but never were. I think it would be a fine first fan film, and anyone could enjoy it. Nevertheless, it is probably a production best appreciated by fans because of how much it draws on from past TV shows and films, bringing things together in ways that make sense. These two characters HAD to meet... they never did.
It reminds us that some of the shows greatest fans were it's actors. I particularly appreciated the scenes where an aged Uhura and a young Tuvok speak. Nichelle Nichols famously wanted to quit Star Trek, and no less a figure than the Rev. Martin Luthur King, Jr. kept her with the show. Whenever people accuse Barak Obama of being a Vulcan, I think of Tim Russ. I refer to Obama as "Tuvok Obama" in my review of Star Trek XI (See Blog 211). This film left me with a renewed sense of gratitude to both the fanatics who keep this show alive and the cast members who cooperate.Our Synopsis
It could as easily have been titled "The Wrath of Charlie X." It bookends The Original Series with the Movie Generations.
Current Production Notes
The production company has gone on to make Star Trek: Renegades (now simply Renegades).
