    I like how it starts out with the original TOS Enterprise and then the ship that blows up at the end is the refit Enterprise from the movies. :p

    Star Wars is a Star Trek for someone that never graduated from high school.

    I did like the JJ Abrams films. He went a little nutty with the Sapphire Lens Flare effect but they're still fun.

    I think they're entertaining to watch. It's just not the direction I would have expected them to go with Star Trek. Lately it seems like Hollywood keeps going back to the past with reboots and prequels. With Star Trek, we have the reboot movies with Kirk and his crew, and we've also had Enterprise (prequel TV series) and now Discovery (another prequel TV series). While those are good shows, I think it would be interesting to see more of the period between the original series and the Next Generation (there was something like 70 years in between), or something continuing after Nemesis (movie). For the period in between, I think it would be interesting to see something focusing on the Enterprise B or C - We only got to see each of those once in any official Star Trek show or movie.

    Also, it seems like it's taking them a while between new Star Trek movies. Between the 2009 movie and Into Darkness, it was 4 years, and then 3 years for the next movie. With the older movies, it would usually be 2-3 years between sequels. I also seem to remember reading that Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto weren't interested in making Star Trek movies anymore, but I've heard they've signed a contract and Paramount plans to make more movies. Anton Yelchin also died not too long ago, and I heard they won't recast Chekov..

    I've seen a couple, not bad! A lot of devotion to the original series. I'll have to check the others out.

    I thought they were shut down by Paramount? Maybe just new films. Too bad.

    Paramount did put stricter guidelines in place around the time, but it didn't affect the then current productions, just new ones. Star Trek Continues continued until it wrapped up the story it intended to tell, concluding the Enterprise's five year mission and leading into the refit/movie era.

    There was a series of Star Trek TOS episodes I found that some group had made, but I don't think it was that one.. I saw a couple of theirs but the acting didn't seem quite like the original characters. I might have to check out some episodes from that link though.

    Well, there was also James Cawley's Star Trek New Voyages/Phase II. And while it had some good stuff, including a variation on The Doomsday Machine episode(complete with William Windom returning as Decker), I never felt some of the character acting was quite right.

    I've poked around, some of them are really bad. I mean, fun for the creators for sure. And there was that one, Anaxar I think, that was way to overproduced or something without the heart. 'Continues' is the best one I've seen so far.
