New old star trek!

If you are a fan of the original Star Trek, you MUST check out Basically, a group of fans got together and are going to make 4 new episodes that follow the end of the original “Captain Kirk” version. Only 2 are completed so far and I’ve only watched the first one. Effects are a little cheezy, but so was the original. Props are amazingly accurate. This is not a spoof, but a serious effort. They apparently were able to get some veterans to help with production–William Windom, who played Commodore William Decker in the original series “The Doomsday Machine” episode reprises his role in a small part. Walter Koenig, “Checkov”,� has a part in the next episode I think and George Takei, “Mr. Sulu” will be in one too.

I don’t really like the actor playing Spock, but the Kirk and Bones are ok. Not sure about Scotty since he didn’t say much. In any event, it’s a must see.�
