Another quality 'fan' production, at least as good as some episodes of the original series.

The enterprise becomes trapped on the edge of a rift in space where alternate universes meet and Kirk finds himself having to contend with both ghosts from his own past and dangers in the present. Impossible to elaborate any further without a major spoiler, but there's a lot of Kirk being Kirk as well as moral and practical dilemmas to resolve - plus some spaceships flying around action!

As I said in a review of another in this series, while clearly a 'fan' creation, it really does have the look and feel or the original (1960s/1970s) series, and the screenplays and story lines are at least as good as many of those in the original. This screenplay was written by the same woman who wrote 'The Tholian Web' of the original series and she both elaborates on and ties up some loose ends from the earlier work.

It is all very well-produced and directed, head and shoulders above others fan productions out there. Vic Mignogna is uncannily like William Shatner at times and could almost be his twin brother. Other actors have developed their performances well, with Chuck Huber as McCoy and Chris Doohan as Scotty particularly impressing. Todd Haberkorn also does very well in the immensely challenging task of having to emulate Spock/Nimoy.

When one knows it all non-profit and made with love for the project, it seems unfair to criticize. I did feel there was a bit too much CGI, which doesn't sit well with the solidity of the rest of the set, and also a bit too much 'story', making this episode a bit episodic in itself and overpopulated with concepts at times. I can understand the temptation to do this, though, because CBS (the Star Trek copyright holders) have stipulated that STC may make only two more episodes as they're unhappy with the proliferation of fan productions in general.

Quality work, really looking forward to the final two episodes, but would caution not to stuff them too full of ideas, on the principle that, generally speaking, less = more.
