The Enterprise reconnoiters an anomalous object that has drained three emergency power stations. And in the process, Captain Kirk must take on a being he never thought he'd see again: Apollo. Now visibly aged, Apollo wants to live out what years remain to him in peace. But can he really lay aside his imperative for worship? Or will he always remain a positive menace to everyone around him? Written by Terry A. Hurlbut

Did You Know?


Michael Forest reprises his role as Apollo from Star Trek: Who Mourns for Adonais? (1967) . Although the story takes place only a few years after the first encounter with Apollo, almost fifty years has passed in reality - the age difference is explained by having Apollo's life energy being drained by the The Realm.

When the Enterprise is shown firing the photon torpedo at the object in the opening scenes there is some sort of large satellite visible in the shot in front of the enterprise, probably from a set up from a different episode FX shot. See more »


Paladin: I'd like you to take a look at this gun. It's handcrafted to my specifications. Balance is excellent. The trigger responds to a pressure of one ounce.
Captain James T. Kirk: I'm quite familiar with the piece. Perhaps we could talk about this.
Paladin: I rarely draw it unless I mean to use it. Care for a demonstration?
Mr. Scott: Freeze program. Was she everything I promised, sir?
Captain James T. Kirk: And more! I've never seen a holographic program this detailed before. I swear I can almost smell the gun oil.

A fine, fun effort, looking forward to next episode

An obvious labor of love, "Star Trek Continues: Pilgrim of Eternity" brings the flavor of the original Star Trek series, and adds a couple of things from Star Trek:The Next Generation, too.

The low budget production isn't that far behind what the original producers did on 35mm film. While the lighting and acting left some room for improvement, the sets and sounds of the Enterprise were spot on, and many of the effect shots are actually better than original.

The stars of the show were outshone by the return of a guest star from Star Trek, who commanded every scene he was in, and shared a tender scene with his real life wife.

If you loved ST:TOS, you will enjoy this work,overlook the flaws, and look forward to the continuing missions of NCC-1701 and her crew.
