Trekkies couldn’t get UPN or Spike to save Star Trek: Enterprise, even after they ponied up production money, but a group of Trek fanatics is now trying to revive the original 1966-69 series by making the ultimate fan films. Wired has a terrific story about a the group of amateurs filming new episodes of the classic Trek. They’re led by Jack Marshall (who created the largely Jar-Jar free Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Edit), and they’re working with some professionals with real Trek credits, including Chekov himself, Walter Koenig. (Like he’s got so many better things to do.) You can see the fruits of their labor at newvoyages.com. As Spock would say: fascinating.
