I’m a big fan of Star Trek Continues, the incredible fan-produced project to finish the last two years of the original U.S.S. Enterprise’s five-year mission. After three amazing episodes, the crew is almost ready to go with Episode 4. Principle photography is completed, I am informed, and it is slated to debut in the spring.

I am not alone in my love of Star Trek Continues, so it’s not at all surprising to see that the Kirkstarter has already met its $100,000 goal, with two weeks still left to go. But there are some really cool stretch goals on the horizon. I like this one:

“Star Trek Continues is proud to be part of Trek history, aimed at completing
the final two years of the original five-year mission. After mounting a successful Kickstarter campaign, the show is already making waves and attracting guest stars such as Michael Forest, Jamie Bamber, Lou Ferrigno, and Erin Gray – as well as cameos by Star Trek alums like Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn.”
It really is absolutely captivating. Mr. Mignogna is perfect – and I mean perfect! – William Shatner as Captain James Tiberius Kirk, down to body movements and personal tics. »
