Doug is the man, as is everyone who contributes to SOTL.

3. fizzben - September 30, 2011

4. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire. - September 30, 2011

Ok. Get these ships in a new Animated Star Trek Series.

5. dmduncan - September 30, 2011

That was great!

6. J.C. England, formerly Another Q - September 30, 2011

Fan freakin-tastic! – Nerdgasm for sure!
Thank you all!

7. Scooter - September 30, 2011

That is very, very cool. Nicely done!

8. TrekMadeMeWonder - September 30, 2011


Nice video!!!!


9. John Gill - September 30, 2011

Nice, but the word “CALENDAR” close to the end is misspelled…

10. AJ - September 30, 2011

Absolutely Trektastic.

11. Marvin the Martian - September 30, 2011

I’m glad he animates better than he spells. :-)

12. Sarek66 - September 30, 2011

Wow! Think about that animation replacing the old animated series animation plus Secret of Vulcan Fury, Judgement Rites and 25th anniversary video games. Also for a brand new animated series! Incredible. Do it!

13. classic shots - September 30, 2011

33 seconds and 1:35… make me want to pop in the classic movies! Most of it is really cool but those ones are my favorite.

14. Andrew - September 30, 2011

I agree CGI animation like this proves that Star Trek can suceed as an animated series and since we’re not getting the next Star Trek movie before 2013 at the earliest, they should do an animated series in the meantime.

Seeing compilations of all the series and movies depicited gives me the idea that maybe the animated series could feature all incarnations of Star Trek and tell stories during or after all the shows took place and feature the voices of the real actors.

There could be something for everyone in the series. It’s a cool idea anyway and hopefully we will see an animated Star Trek if they won’t give us any live Star Trek show until the movies are through.

As someone who hated the JJ-Enterprise, I have to say that maybe it was down to shot composition as much as it was the actual design. Because in some of this, it actually looks pretty decent.

17. matthias - October 1, 2011

Great! I hope, they will make a good 3d animated series in the near future. It is possible to produce decent, nice, stunning moments as we have seen here.

18. CmdrR - October 1, 2011

Please issue a 6″ calendar this year. PLEEEEEASE!

19. Holger - October 1, 2011

WOW! This made my day.

20. P Technobabble - October 1, 2011


21. crazydaystrom - October 1, 2011

That was AWESOME!!! The shuttle craft maneuver to haul @$$ away from the Klingon ship @ 1:05 is SWEET!!!
Two minutes of what I really want Trekwise!

23. Slick - October 1, 2011

Super Cool!!

24. TJ Trek - October 1, 2011

I hate to admit it but Trek lovers can really only agree on a few things….Spock is awesome, we still don’t know if picard or kirk was the better captain….and Doug is the man. thanks guys for posting this one. Awesome stuff

25. TJ Trek - October 1, 2011

okey….does any body want to help me get a petition going that basicly says the CBS should sponser a series or a series of semi low-budget animated movies based off these animations an a totally new Star Trek crew having great adventures….I say yes. How about you?

26. TJ Trek - October 1, 2011

Oh…and sorry to be posting like this, but I had to say that this guy MATT is also the man (it must be noted he is the only who actually put this together) that is it I promise, and I will totally understand if I get penalized for this.

27. Phil - October 1, 2011

Nice job…

28. alt-Spock - October 1, 2011

It’s Kirk.
We’re sure.

30. trekologist - October 1, 2011

Almost fainted…… ;) Excellent work!!!!

31. Battle-scarred Sciatica - October 1, 2011

Superb work people.

And it’s definitely Kirk

32. Christopher Roberts - October 2, 2011

Nice. Especially loved seeing the Enterprise NX-01 refit on the move. I hope we’ll see some more of that one day.

I’ve done a couple of tribute videos to the prequel series, which celebrated its 10th Anniversary on Sept. 26th.

Teaser ► (3m 10s)

Tribute ► (8m 23s)

That last one is series wide, covering everything that is ENT… from the beginning.

33. This Is Me - October 2, 2011

Great, great stuff. Being a blueprint/sketchbook fanatic, I’m a big fan of Drex’s site.

Hell, even Church’s ENTERPRISE looked good in that. Almost.


34. TonyD - October 2, 2011

Beautiful stuff. Absolutely beautiful. I’d also love to see more video clips like these.

And now for a little basic math: Kirk > Picard

35. SPOCKBOY - October 2, 2011

God I am SO SICK of overly-dramatic choral music in trailers.
Animations were lovely though. :)

36. Robert Bernardo - October 3, 2011

Very, very nice!
