Best Of Star Trek In 2008 – Fan & Independent Productions January 1, 2009

by TrekMovie.com Staff , Filed under: Books,Fan Productions,List , trackback

Yesterday we covered the best ‘official’ Star Trek productions from Paramount, CBS and the official licensees, but they are not the only ones putting out content for Trek fans. Many other fans (and professionals) produce Star Trek for you viewing, listening and reading pleasure and here are our favorites for the year..
 

BEST INDEPENDENT & FAN STAR TREK PRODUCTIONS
 

 

Best Fan Film – "Operation Beta Shield" (Hidden Frontier & Intrepid)
Most of the buzz in independent Trek films in 2008 has been around the completion of "Of Gods and Men" and the recent Phase II episode "Blood and Fire, Part 1." Both were well received here at TrekMovie.com, however, both are intended to be combined with work coming out either before of after 2008. So for our best fan film, we chose a "Operation Beta Shield" which was a very Star Trek-like international cooperative effort between the teams behind Hidden Frontier and Star Trek Intrepid. Together they created an intriguing story set after the events of Nemesis in the 24th century with a combination of new characters and familiar ones (like Shelby from "Best of Both Worlds"). To be sure the acting is a mixed bag, and it is shot entirely with virtual sets, but many of the effects and costumes are excellent. While clearly identifiable as ‘Star Trek’ this could not be confused with a professional production, which is actually part of the charm. Unlike the previously mentioned ‘big’ fan projects, the Hidden Frontier productions are done without big name professionals and famous Trek veterans, which is another reason for getting our ‘best’ nod. “Operation Beta Shield” and the other episodes from Hidden Frontier are ‘fan’ films in the truest sense. Another reason for recognition is that in 2008 Hidden Frontier put out seven episodes, and effort like that is very commendable. [Download OBS at hiddenfrontier.com]

Best Fan Audio Production – Star Trek The Continuing Mission
Audio-only adventures are a big new growth area in the form of fan made Trek and our pick of the best in 2008 actually arrived on the scene on Christmas 2007. ‘Star Trek The Continuing Mission’ started off with the excellent "Ghost Ship" featuring the ‘guest voice’ of TOS actor Lawrence Montaigne, and in 2008 they have delivered two additional episodes. The show is set before the TNG era on a TOS movie era ship, the USS Montana, that has moved forward in time. Each episode is well edited with music and sound effects and the voice acting is quite good. For fans of the no-longer produced Pocket Books audio books, these fan produced episodes are good supplement. [continuingmission.com]

Best Podcast – Treks In SciFi
Nearly every week for three years, Rick "Rico" Dostie has entertained fans with his excellent Star Trek and science fiction themed podcast. With more than 200 podcasts, Rico has looked at episodes and feature films from all versions of Star Trek, offering his enthusiastic commentary and presenting good interpretations. Listening to the podcast is like getting together with friends and watching episodes, with Rico showing a real love for all things Trek without being gushy or silly as many podcasts are in the world of fandom. The podcasts feature product updates, generic science fiction news, Trek news, and especially episode commentary. There isn’t anything quite like Treks in SciFi, a unique and fun podcast worth checking out. [treksinscifi.com]

Best New Fansite – My Star Trek Scrapbook
Frederick McLeod has been a Star Trek fan from the beginning, and his website offers truly unique and wonderful scans and photos from Star Trek’s past. The website features everything from MAD magazine scans to classic Trek advertising, newspaper clippings to unusual articles. It is a Star Trek history buffs dream website, excellent in both content and quality. [mystartrekscrapbook.blogspot.com]

Best ‘Fan’ Art – Mirror Universe (Devorah Sperber)
The New York art exhibit "Mirror Universe" by Devorah Sperber featured amazing bead and spools of thread art of favorite Star Trek characters. The amazing renditions of Kirk, Spock, the Enterprise, and the TNG Holodeck were among the items of art created by Sperber who became a fan by watching reruns of TNG on Spike TV in the early 2000s. Sperber’s art represents how Star Trek inspires its fan’s creativity and ingenuity in the arts and sciences. [See full TrekMovie story] [Mirror Universe – Caren Golden Fine Art]

Best ‘Fan’ Art (digital) – USS Kelvin in HD (Tobias Richter)
Veteran German CG artist Tobias Richter, owner of The Light Works, is well known to many fans who follow digital art, but wowed the rest of the Trek community recently with his set of desktops and animations of the USS Kelvin from the new Star Trek movie. Tobias’ renderings are so beautiful and so detailed, they could easily be confused for the real thing from ILM (even Vreenak might have a hard time making the call). [See full TrekMovie story w/ video and desktops]

Best Non-fiction book – ‘Star Trek’ (Ina Rae Hark – BFI)
Star Trek fans got a real treat this year from Ina Rae Hark, author of "Star Trek" an academic text which is part of the BFI Television Classics line. Hark, a fan and professor of English and Film Studies at the University of South Carolina, avoids the mistakes of most academic endeavors in that the text offers a critical discussion without being boring or elitist criticism. Hark appreciates Star Trek, and although discusses its thematic flaws, she gets why Trek is popular. The book offers some new interpretations of all five television shows, and features good writing and color photos from various episodes. Fans may not always agree with Hark’s opinions of the shows, yet the text is both interesting and full of new ideas that will delight even those who know all the trivia.


Hark’s Star Trek text

Best Viral Video (Music) – Star Trek Rap (Those Arent Muskets)
The ThoseArentMusketts.com comedy troupe took the net by storm earlier in the year with a bit 80s nostalgia in the form of a Star Trek The Next Generation Rap. This entirely not safe for work and not very PC song, still shows a lot of love for the the Big Ent D and crew.

Best Viral Video (Mashup) – Trek Through Time (Kelvington/Spockboy)
There have been a ton of mashup videos done in 2008, inluding a Sombrero-ific entry by TrekMovie.com. Many of the best have been done by our pals Rick Kelvington and Paul ‘Spockboy’ Sibbald, with their best effert coming last in their vision of a matchup between Doctor Who and Star Trek The Original Series.

Meh.

It’s okay, but nothing really stands out from this group.

2. Holger - January 1, 2009

A lot of action in the fan made sector. Hats off to all who produced these things in 2008.

3. USS TRINOMA - NCC 0278 - January 1, 2009

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! This will be the year of STAR TREK!!! Second, I believe with the Quantum Mechanics scenario, all fan based Star Trek stories should be canon.

Uhhhh not that Dr. Who video again. Blah!

6. James Heaney - Wowbagger - January 1, 2009

Dammit, Prooth! You’ve stolen my thunder again!

Seriously, though: congratulations to everyone, particularly to Sebastian Prooth, who puts out a wonderfully well-produced audio drama (and is a neat guy to boot!). A well-deserved award, and those of you who don’t already listen to fan audio drama should give it a shot.

7. fred - January 1, 2009

I was totally shocked to see my blog selected for inclusion on this list!

Thanks so much for noticing and for the honor!!!

I like Treks in Scifi, but I’d also recommend “Make it So” which is a very funny Trek podcast done by a few English fellows.

9. Jefferies Tuber - January 1, 2009

I don’t quite understand how a shuttle approaches the shuttle bay while the Kelvin is using Impulse power.

Anyone care to technobabblify that one?

10. Andy Patterson - January 1, 2009

Wow! I love really well made fan Trek projects! Fun.

Wow Hidden Frontier beats out Cawley and crew and Farragut???? Now we know who owns those scandalous and quite comprimising Trekmovie staff pictures

that was a wonderful trip down memory lane. thanks for the blogging. very awesome indeed.

any chance we will see any Star Trek Poster Books in the future? i had all of those when i was a kid but my mom sold them off in a garage sale when i was away in the military.

14. P Technobabble - January 1, 2009

I appreciate all the fan-made productions simply out of that shared love for Star Trek. I applaud all of them. They’re playing in one of the most fun playgrounds of all time!

#9 – Jefferies
My New Years Resolution is “no technobabbling”, so I’m gonna have to pass on answering that one…

15. S. John Ross - January 1, 2009

Cool stuff. These days, the fan stuff is my favorite Trek.

16. James Heaney - Wowbagger - January 1, 2009

#11 Andy Patterson: I second that. I *love* those vids, and have had them favorited for years.

17. Shat Hands - January 1, 2009

Absolutely loved the TNG rap

very rube but LMAO!

18. Diggin' up Bones - January 1, 2009

#9 No techno-babble from me. It looks like it would approach from “above” and aft of the vessel, safely over the ion stream or whatever.

19. C.S. Lewis - January 1, 2009

I especially appreciate “My Star Trek Scrapbook” and thought I might do one like it myself. Recently, while cleaning out my late parents’ home, I found boxes full of old newspaper clippings; magazine articles; audio tapes (of Ruth Berman and David Gerrold for example, giving a talk at our library in the mid 1970s); tapes of star appearances on talk shows like (e.g. Merv Griffith); and some of my own stuff from my club and Star Trek Welcommittee.

And speaking of fan films, does any one here remember that original fan film made by a guy who also built his own sets? It was covered in an amateur film-making magazine ca 1975 but sadly, I can’t find it. The guy filmed it on Super 8 or some 16mm stock. I can find nothing on the web about it… I guess if it happened before HTML it doesn’t count, lol!

Sincerely,
C.S. Lewis

Ah James….stop it. Stop it. No really. You’re the man. That’s very nice. I appreciate it. I’m no richer for it but I’m glad they’re enjoyed. That’s what makes it nice even though I haven’t figured that money part out yet.

21. sean - January 1, 2009

‘Fornication is the only way to make the next generation’. Oh god, I haven’t laughed like that in a while. Definitely NSFW, but good for a chuckle.

The ‘Operation Beta Shield’ trailer…yeah. Oh fan films, will you ever cease to entertain in completely unintentional ways?

Can’t remember the title of that fan film, but it was shot in Super 8 and was covered in an early issue of the late Don Dohler’s original indie CINEMAGIC magazine (before STARLOG bought it out). I believe the piece was reprinted in the 1980s in a paperback book by Dohler called FILM MAGIC, which collected some of the old CINEMAGIC material.

23. CMX54 - January 2, 2009

PS: Here’s a cover gallery page of early CINEMAGIC issues. Check out the cover of issue #6. The fan film was called PARAGON’S PARAGON.

http://www.geocities.com/unifan2001/Cinemagic.html

24. CMX54 - January 2, 2009

PPS: Oh yeah, this fan film was mentioned earlier on this very site (check out post #23):

http://trekmovie.com/2008/02/18/new-voyages-heads-to-phase-ii/

PARAGON’S PARAGON filmmaker John Cosentino was also a creature maker as I recall, who contributed at least one monster suit to one of Don Dohler’s films, probably THE ALIEN FACTOR. I think he also wrote for Dohler’s CINEMAGIC magazine at some time or another (as did I).

25. Nick Cook - January 2, 2009

Unexpected, but yay all the same! Thank you Anthony!

26. Keep the Faith - January 2, 2009

re:13…

Thanks… I do plan on doing entries on the ST Poster mags soon. I already posted one cover and will do all ofthem, plus some articles from them as well.

re: 19… And I have the issue of Cinemagic with Paragon’s Paragon, and plan on scanning the article and posting it very soon. I think it’s neat that fan films have been made that far back, and interesting to see how far they have come,

31. C.S. Lewis - January 2, 2009

CINEMAGIC! THANK YOU SIR! You don’t know how long I’ve banged my head on my computer monitor trying to recall that name! (Actually, since The Tressaurian Intersection was announced…)

Sincerely,

^30 Fred

What a wonderful new year surprise, finding you two researchers par excellence! Thank you and thank you again. In junior high, I built a plywood “Sensor Hood” from Spock’s station that was to be my first set piece for my own film, inspired by this effort. Sadly for my directorial debut, I hadn’t considered the problem of BUDGET :-)

But now that it’s been resurfaced, perhaps our esteemed webmaster will write an article on Paragon’s Paragon. What say you, Mr Pascale?

Sincerely,
C.S. Lewis

33. Steve J. - January 2, 2009

Fred,

Your Star Trek scrapbook site is wonderful! Brings back a lot of memories. I thought I was the only one who saved stuff like that — Star Trek ads, articles from newspapers and magazines, etc. I have a file folder full of stuff like that, mostly from the mid-1970s to present. I have a page-size ad from Life magazine from ca. 1967 about buying a new Magnavox (I think) color TV to see all the glorious color on Star Trek. I be happy to share any of my stuff with you!

34. PookaKnight - January 2, 2009

Is it too late to nominate USS Tamerlane’s The Last Night of the Year for best fan comic?

35. screaming satellite - January 2, 2009

Fred –

cool site – you should have got shatner (circa 1979) to drop kick your a**hole stepdad – what a bastard.

36. trp - January 2, 2009

Hmm, it appears that “Blood and Fire” will not qualify next year either, based on the criteria above. There may be a reason that part one is actually called Episode 4, and part two is Episode 5 . . . . .

–R

37. Dr. Image - January 2, 2009

Beta Shield? Costumes excellent? What’s with the glaring light gray trim on the Federation uniforms??
It’s amazing that with all the work put into these things, they get something so simple so wrong.

38. Jman - January 2, 2009

Hidden Frontier has done a good job with out big name help.

#25. While you should be proud of your work, this article talks about the Best of the Best of 2008. Your little production is nice, but it is not a fan production in the sense defined here nor is it really a mash-up either, at least the kind of mash-ups listed here. Not to mention that it is not from 2008.

•••

I have never liked Hidden Frontier because they look so bad. I understand the need for virtual sets and how it saves on costs and production time, but they look like bad local television effects from the 60’s and 70’s. I can’t get past this and look at the stories for whatever merit they may hold.

•••

Did James Cawley’s production have big names in its first two episodes? I cannot recall of the top of my head? And before Topin took over for Spock, were any of Cawley’s actors, “professional,” actors?

•••

While other fans may be grooving on the U.S.S. Kelvin, I hate it. I love the detail. I love the pseudo-retro look to some of its parts, but taken as a whole, I am not a big fan of it. I think the design would have been much better with a single pod, either above or below the saucer.

As for the deflector dish, an “Enterprise” era type saucer based deflector, or a dish hanging below the saucer could have been added.

40. Kirk's Girdle - January 2, 2009

Re: 36 USS Tamerlane

Very nice. I don’t read comics, but the drawings are very crisp, simple yet dynamic, with just a touch of the old anime / manga look thrown in. Plus, the story, from what I scanned of it was, looked very interesting.

Well done.

41. Kirk's Girdle - January 2, 2009

eh, pardon my speakings. English eh, is, eh, my first language.

42. Clive - January 2, 2009

@32–I tried liked crazy to find the guys behind “Paragon’s Paragon” when I was writing my new book on the history of fan films, “Homemade Hollywood: Fans Behind The Camera” [PLUG] Available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Amazon, etc. [/PLUG], and I couldn’t find them anywhere. I have no idea if they ever managed to finish the flick. Also MIA is the crew of “Yorktown II,” the 1987 fan film that George Takei starred in that was never released. I even asked Trek designer Andrew Probert (who did some design for them) and he has no idea what happened to that flick. If anyone can find me some new info on them, I’d love to highlight your findings on my fan film blog, fancinematoday.com.

43. PookaKnight - January 2, 2009

40. Kirk’s Girdle: I’m just a fan, but I’m sure the creator would love to hear your kind words!

44. Anthony Pascale - January 2, 2009

yes it is too late to nominate a web comic but we should have that category next year, and (at least with the fan stuff) we will try to involve the fans more in nominating and/or voting on the various productions…there are just so many it is hard to keep track. If there is one area of Trek coverage I want to improve here it is the fan stuff, but we do our best.

“What’s with the glaring light gray trim on the Federation uniforms??”
Creative choice on the part of HF’s producers. They consider it a variant. By contrast, you’ll notice that the Intrepid costumes have the standard trim.

46. PookaKnight - January 2, 2009

44. Anthony Pascale: Alas! Oh well, here’s to the future fan comics of 2009. May they be as entertaining as the ones from 2008!

47. CMX54 - January 2, 2009

C.S. Lewis:

My pleasure! It was fun digging around in dusty memories about those early fan films. (I used to see lots of them at cons and fan clubs in the early and mid-70s.) I knew CINEMAGIC and Don Dohler very well.

I remember the first convention I attended, in Detroit in 1972, somebody walked up to Gene R. and showed him an 8 x 10 black and white glossy of the Enterprise bridge. He looked at it, smiled, then looked again and said, “Hey, that’s not mine!” It turned out to be a photo of a fan film set, but I’m not sure if it was from John Cosentino’s PARAGON’S PARAGON or not, but in those days I knew at least a few people who tried to build their own Enterprise bridge for a fan film.

I made a few fan films back in the day myself, wrote about making them and was published…but they weren’t Trek films. My budgets were too low for anything resembling Trek sets and costumes.

48. CMX54 - January 2, 2009

Clive:

It shouldn’t be that hard to find somebody from PARAGON’S PARAGON. Just check around the old Don Dohler gang in Baltimore. Maybe George Stover could be of some help, he is easy enough to contact.

Though I understand your issues with HF, I have to disagree with our assessment. Despite the challenges facing that team, they have produced not just a handful of episodes, but entire seasons of content. As someone who has helmed his own microbudget productions, I’m amazed at that enormous achievement.

Hats off to you, HF.

52. Lord Garth, Formerly Of Izar - January 2, 2009

Sorry don’t buy it . Someone either has ccomprimising pics, a relative on the staff or the voters were hard core Next Gen zeolots crying in their sleep over the death of their era. Anyone watch The latest Farragut Rock and a Hard Place. Did you see the shuttle landing sequence???? Looks amazingly good. Plus it has evil Fu Manchu sporting Ottoman Commie Klingons. Wins hands down on both those accounts not to mention the funny sequence with the thrown klingon knife.

Fu Manchu Commie Ottoman Klingons – 1
HF – Zero

McDonald’s sells more burgers than anyone else on the planet. Windows comes loaded on more PCs than any other operating system. This does not make either good.

Quantity is never a replacement for quality. My comments stand.

55. CMX54 - January 3, 2009

Thanks for the memories, Fred! Great site you have there. :)

FWIW, I enjoy and appreciate most of the fan films to one degree or another, just because I know how incredibly difficult and expensive backyard/basement filmmaking can be. However, I’d like to see some of the fan film folks branch out and make films of their own in universes of their own creation. Ultimately, it’s far more rewarding to “do your own thing” because it will stand or fall completely on its own merits. But in either case, good luck!

Urm, not sure why that comment is directed at me, but I was involved with Beta Shield, which while certainly not as polished as Phase II or Farragut, most certainly is a fan video, and is from 2008.

58. Robert - January 3, 2009

Star Trek: The Continuing Mission is a breath of fresh air. I had not heard of it before so following the link I found and downloaded the three episodes available. The audio series format forces the listener to be attentive to the story while their imagination handles the VFX. Usually we’re so busy watching a film and enjoying it’s visuals that the story itself can be lost in the background.

The voice acting isn’t Hollywood caliber but it’s not bad. Besides, Episode 1 “Ghostship” is worth downloading simply to here the sexy sounding computer voice at 21:07 saying “Warning: Structural integrity failure in 45 seconds.”

I look forward to more from the crew of the USS Montana.

Happy New Year, My Son !

I thought that Mego thing with Rosie O’Donnell and Denny Craine was one of funniest Trek parodies I’ve ever seen. I think Trek parodies should be a category.

61. Rico - January 4, 2009

Thanks guys for mentioning my podcast! It’s something I love doing every weekend. I also cover “Star Wars” at times and other Sci-Fi. But Trek always gets top billing. Again, thanks for the nice comments about my show.

It’s cool to see Treks In Sci Fi and Rico mentioned here. The show every week is awesome, and Rico does a great job for all of us geeks. AWESOME! Rico’s not afraid to have many of the listeners contribute and comment. He also has a great forum going with some very cool people that participate. I know it’s been a bright spot in my geeky life. Come check it out. Happy New Year!

64. Feathers - January 4, 2009

Treks in Sci-Fi is a well deserved winner. I only found it this year but it really is unique and very Trek centred. Rico knows his Trek and other genre shows an is always worth a listen. The forums have a good bunch on board too.

Good choice I say!

65. Mikey87 - January 5, 2009

To be honest, Operation Beta Shield was unbelievably dull and didn’t seem to flow. I really didn’t like it and I have to say the quality of Hidden Frontier Productions has dropped of late.

66. Sotirios Moshonas - January 8, 2009

Hi, Everyone:

For Mr. Pascale:
– Sir, Please give yourself credit for creating the “New Star Trek Trailer” that you created when the news came out that the new star trek movie was coming out on Christmas Day 2008.

Earlier in the year 2008, when I was in Europe, your trailer was a big hit there. All were expecting the classic, famous ship making a comeback.
Thank you for your creation.

For PoolAKnight:
– USS Tamberlane lives on! I have read and watch your comics. It is totally AWESOME! I apologise for the shout. Your stories rock! Keep up the good work. Yes, it does remind me of great japanese magna comic books.

I hope one day that the USS Tamberlane, NCC-510, will meet her future sister, the USS Tamberlane of the the 24th or 25th Century for a timeline story. That would be awesome.

Keep on trekkin’ and I hope one day, you will create a story in memory to Gene Wesley Roddenberry and his wife, the first lady of Star Trek, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry.

Thank You and Take Care.

One Short Note:
– Mr. Pascale — Thank you for 2008. An honourable mention to Uno, the beagle who won the Westminster Dog Championship. It was related to Porthos, the lovable Beagle on Star Trek: Enterprise. Everyone’s favourtie character.

Second — for Kudryavka (Laika) the first living creature who went into space and never came home. That was 50 years ago when her ship, Sputnik 2, re-enter orbit and burn up on 14 April, 1958. She started it all. As Mr. Tucker said — “Boldy Go Where No Dog Has Gone Before”

Thank you for your time, Mr. Pascale.

Peace, Life Long, Happiness and Prosper.
