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

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?

Watched Them Back to Back
7 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I lived through the era of the original series, and am a long-time Star Trek fan, so when Star Trek Continues came along, I was excited to watch. It's such a treat to see such a faithful fan reproduction done, and I appreciated the storyline in "Continues'" first episode when it came out in 2013.

It's now 2017, and last night, I sat my son down and we watched the original "Who Mourns for Adonais," and right after that, "Pilgrim of Eternity," so he could get the perspective and back story of Apollo from its introduction in the 60s. We both enjoyed seeing how nicely the new story meshed with the old, and carried it on to a very satisfying conclusion.

Star Trek Continues bridges the divide in another special way, too. It takes us from where TOS abruptly ended in 1969, and gracefully transitions the crew of the Enterprise forward to the point where 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture picks things back up. We now have a complete chronicling of Kirk's captaincy, from his first year in command through to his retirement, and eventual demise in a Next Generation film.

Continues is achieving its goal with such love and respect for the fans of the original production, because they are fans themselves. Their fidelity to the original series, beautiful writing/storytelling, sets, costumes, makeup, characters, direction, production, make these new episodes a joy to watch.
