STAR TREK: THE NEW VOYAGES


Old school? OLD SCHOOL????? I'll show you old school, SQT.

Are you aware that there is an internet Star Trek television show available called: "Star Trek: The New Voyages?" Then get yourself over to this site and check it out.

Jim Kirk, Scotty, Bones, Mr. Spock are still on their five year mission and they are racking up new adventures. The creative force behind these episodes is James Cawley, who apparently had ties to the original series. Over the last several years Cawley quietly collected props, costumes, and set pieces from the original sets, as well as constructing some of his own, with the intention of eventually doing something around the old show. Fortunately, the ease of digital creation and the distribution wonder that is the internet, made his dream and the dream of all Trekkers possible : to bring back the original characters and to keep the magic of the show alive.

Now I know some of you will turn your noses up at anyone daring to independently put forward new adventures of Capt. Kirk. But come on people, can anyone do a lesser job than the Paramont produced "Generations"? I think this is worth your time, and I think this group is going to explode into public awareness.

If you want more information, and come on..why wouldn't you?...go to this FAQ and enjoy

You know, I am so bad about keeping up with what's being broadcast over the internet. I should keep on this stuff, but...

Anyway, I will have to check it out.

There's another alt star trek producer on the net that's really good, too. I think his show is called Starship Excelsior, or something like that. It's been a while.

I'm not sure if I'm excited about the new trek movie. I love TNG, DS9, Voager and Enterprise but I only like the Original in fact its Kirk who bugs me (I'm a Spock fan).

But I'm intrigued by this series will check it out.

I was so pleased to find the New Voyages, I have to say. I think they capture the drama, charm, relationships, and the wooden acting of the orignal series so well.

Try this site too, if you like the New Voyages and want more Trek:

Sorry. It was Exiter, not Excelsior. Excuse me.


BTW, I made another snarky BSG post up at mine, SQT. I think you'd enjoy it. =)

I love it...I have seen so much on the net that was BETTER than what comes out of hollywood..for Star Trek, Star Wars..this amazing Batman...it blows me away..all this talent...and we still are forced to watch mainstream crap.

I'll never forgive the makers of Star trek for messing the franchise up. Kirk is the man, heroes is what ST needs, I eventually warmed to Picard because there was so much to him and I can relate to the whole duty aspect of him. The others were blah, DS9 finally got good then ended, I do have Colm Meany's signed photo though as he was a most under used character you don't get much better than his 'whispers' episode and he had good chemistry with Dr Bhasar (can't spell) Voyager was embarrassing and then there was Enterprise with Scott Bacula, great casting ....... not! it was like SG1 he'd get captured and beat up like O'Neill every week, he bacame more like Kirk at the end but it was too late.
I will have trouble with anything else that Paramount brings out as I feel betrayed by the formula shows we are expected to like because its ST, oh look a space cloud, oh look a big bloke with a lumpy forehead. I do miss Kirk and Scotty but to rehash it with new actors is difficult, I want a Kirk like new character that kicks ass and sorts out all the problems with his side kicks, no teenage angst, and no problem that can't be solved with a fist fight and weemen to snog, get story lines like Battlestar Galactica and a cast like Firefly, ok my post is finished.

SQT said...

*sniff*

I get a little emotional when anyone mentions Firefly.

I am Out of My League. I like TNG and DS-9 but that's the scope pf my experience.

Scotty said...

Hmmm, worth a look for sure.

And thanks for that 'tabs' link, SQT - I'll try that one out when I'm feeling more adventurous, lol.

You know there was a Star Wars film called Revelations, you'll find it somewhere on the net for download. It was well worth seeing.

If you can weed through the 9 gazillion September 11th conspiracy theory films named "Revelations," first.
