Quotes

Captain Garrovick: [narrating] Suplimentary Captain's Log. I've decided to remain in the area rather than return the captured device to Starfleet. Tressaurians are ruthless and agressive, but attacking a starbase and destroying a starship indicates something much bigger at work here. What is this device and what do they intend to use it for? Cutty thinks my past with the Tressaurians has affected my judgement. I wish I could be sure he was wrong.

THE SEVEN YEAR WAIT ENDS - - The episode is now complete!!!!
2 June 2009 | by anderbiltSee all my reviews

THIS IS THE YEAR - - the long wait for the final act of The Tressarian Intersection has been appended to the collection of acts on YouTube, and the episode is available to view as a single file now on YouTube. It's an exciting wrap up to a well-done episode of this all-too-brief series, SEE IT ALL now.

As per my original review, this effort and the first episode put out by this crew stand apart from other fan films for a number of reason (in no particular order)

* the premise involves a different ship and crew, logically extended from the known Star Trek universe. We know the USS Exeter from TOS "Omega Glory," left adrift with a dead crew in orbit around an earth-analog planet. The creators here strive for a more full- bodied homage to TOS by creating a new crew and mission, rather than simply having fun by pretending to be Kirk, Spock and McCoy.

* the voice of the writing is true to the approach of the original series, about a collection of well-rounded human characters, flaws, baggage and all, inside the military structure of Starfleet, dealing with the dangers inherent in the prickly politics of UFP.

* fault-finders will have problems with the acting, obviously not professional quality, but you have to see it as a labor of love and let the writing propel you along. The visual effects are meant to emulate TOS, and they're true to the feel of the original show. In "The Tressaurian Intersection," you're also treated to some things not seen in TOS, from the wreck of a whole devastated planet to the blown-up shards of a destroyed starship.

Do yourself a favor, go to YouTube, search "Starship Exeter" and watch the full 51 minutes of this show, complete and intact.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: One "Exeter" worth 100 New Voyages IMO

This gets ten out of ten ONLY because there's no "11." If you have to judge pieces by how well they hit the target they're aiming at, this film nails it!! There isn't a single piece of fan film other than this, that has the sufficient mix of writing and production expertise to enter the ballpark of the original series in its prime. I include New Voyages, and I also include the star-filled indie project Of Gods And Men, which had a hard time punching through its subpar script IMO.

The Starship Exeter group's second film, unfinished, is more satisfying to me than anything i've seen, and actually better than about a half dozen actual TOS episodes if you want to press the point. Please see it for yourself.
