Star Trek: New Voyages (2004)
Very good effort by James Cawley and company!
I downloaded the two episodes available. The "Pilot" was good, especially a first effort by a mostly amateur crew. The second was much better; I eagerly await the third episode, hopefully out soon.
I know from a local newspaper article that James Cawley is a Star Trek fan and has collected many original props and sets of TOS.
I would like to see these guys continue to grow their capabilities and episodes. It seems likely that they will continue to improve.
They have been getting (according to the New Voyages website) some advice, writing, moral support and even some original TOS players: Walter Koenig, William Windom and a guest appearance by Barbara Luna.
Remember, this group of actors and their associates are providing these episodes free and are supplying the sets and props themselves! View the episodes for the entertainment, and, if you must be critical, make it constructive, not snide remarks and the like. These people all have other careers and activities that support them and their families. An example is James Cawley being an Elvis impersonator, so it is only logical that he may resemble Elvis more than the 1960s image of William Shatner.
I wish this troupe well; I sincerely hope they have fun doing this and get that sense of personal accomplishment and satisfaction that all "volunteers" get when providing a public service. The old Vulcan Maxim: "Live Long and Prosper" comes to mind!
