Start Trek continues

No this isn't about the eye-blinding lens-flaring of the last two films, but a fan made continuation of the original series, apparently with cbs's blessing.  It's a testament to the dedication, talent and willingness of people to see their dreams unfold.

This is a fan continuation of the original series, with apollo making a re-appearance.  The crew is the same crew but naturally played by all new actors, including the son (chris doohan) of scotty (james doohan) playing the role of... scotty!  Michael forest reprises his original star trek role of apollo, with marina sirtis off next generations as the voice of the computer! Priceless.

Only 1 webisode's been made so far, but they're hoping to raise $100,00 by the 6th November to produce another 3 webisodes.  To date (24th October at 13:03 hrs UT) they have raised $68,858, so only another $31,142 to go.  So if you're a lover of all things trek, or sci-fi or just wish to poke one in the eye of the executives who cancel everything, go over to their kickstarter page and pledge: anything from $1 all the way up to $3,000 - which gives you:

"THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE SULU: Personal set tour guided by Grant Imahara ...  This is a standalone level and does not include any other level in combination. Backers will be included on our special backer page on the Star Trek Continues website. We will thank backers at this level in the credits of the episodes supported by this Kickstarter..."
But to re-wet your appetite for hopefully more, and if you're one of the few who haven't seen it yet, the following link will take you to their youtube channel so once more we can: boldly go where we've boldly been with a boldness no previous trek has bowled over!

But if you're too lazy to head over...
