You know when you hear the words ‘fan made’ and you think, ‘It’s great that people care and put lots of effort into this, but it’s probably going to be pretty crap.’ Well think that no more you miserable cynic. Just for this particular instance anyway. Because here is a fan made episode of Star Trek continuing on from the original series and it’s pretty damn good. I want to see more! As the original Star Trek series was a five year mission and we only saw three of that, I expect at least two years’ worth of stuff.
It even has Grant Imahara from Mythbusters and Christopher Doohan (son of James Doohan – the original Scotty.) This is actually a follow on episode from one of the original Star Trek episodes – ‘Who Mourns for Adonais’. The guy who plays Apollo is the same actor from the original episode. I’m not sure if the series will continue like this, or even continue at all but I’m a fan of this fan made fiction.

Here is the episode. Enjoy.
