It's SO good to be back on the bridge

Star Trek Continues E01 "Pilgrim of Eternity" from Star Trek Continues on Vimeo.

Apparently I'm not the only die-hard fan out there. This, at last, really is the real "next generation".

It's astonishing what you can do with modern technology. It's ... perfect. In absolutely every detail, music, lighting, the look of it. A tiny bit CGI-ish and green-screeny here and there, but otherwise, note perfect.

And the acting, though a bit patchy, is amazing in places. Vic Mignogna appears to be just channeling Shatner's Kirk. In fact, I'd say it's just pure Kirk. Every twitch, flicker; the walk, the shoulders, way he sat in the chair. It's almost creepy.

And yes, the reason the guy playing Scotty looks so familiar is that he's Christopher Doohan.

This seems to be their first full hour-long episode, but there's more here. And it has received rave reviews, so we can hope for more.

I had no idea this existed. Thank you.

OK, Miss White, how did you get yourself onto the enterprise? At 30:40 of the Apollo episode, there you are, listening to Apollo sing and recite poetry. Either it's you or your identical twin sister. How?!?

That's pretty cool. The intro credits was very nicely done.
