Quotes

[first lines, subtitled version]
P-Liiton tiedeupseeri: I would like to suggest, Emperor, that you reconsider your plan. The scientists are comparing it to Russian roulette. What theories we have on phenomena like the maggot hole indicate a tendency for continually increasing disturbances.
Keisari James B. Pirk: So what else is new. Can we pass through there?
P-Liiton tiedemies: Our ships weren't designed for twist pressures over one googol fluxoms.
Keisari James B. Pirk: So in other words, you don't have a clue.

I am Astonished!
20 October 2005 | by gilliesSee all my reviews

You have to see this movie. The opening scene was so amazingly professional that i thought i had downloaded the wrong film. But, the opening joke was so terribly cliché'd that i realized i got the right one.

I honestly could not tell the difference between the graphics in this movie and in a real start trek movie. Its simply amazing. I'd love to know what they use for CGI tools and how big is the rendering farm.

The scenes on-board the space ships were great, the sets were totally believable (much better than an original STAR TREK set, and most were BETTER than a ST:TNG set.) The acting was very good, the jokes were funny, the only thing separating this movie from a Hollywood film is a little bit of je-ne sais quois.

All in all, the most AMAZING amateur film i've ever seen, they should give these guys $10M and a team of 5 Hollywood (o.k., maybe new york) writers, and see what they can do in 3.5 years, rather than 7.
