A week from today the new Star Trek parody webseries Red Shirt Diaries premiere and TrekMovie has a couple of clips, including an exclusive, plus all the details on the new show.
Red Shirt Diaries coming next week
As TrekMovie first reported in July, The Red Shirt Diaries is a new Star Trek comedy webseries set on board the USS Enterprise during the five year mission. The show is presented as the personal video blog of Ensign Williams (played by Victoria Robinson) who is a member of Starfleet Security. Each webiside will take place during the events of one of the original Star Trek episodes, starting with the first episode "The Man Trap."
In this exclusive clip from episode 4 "The Naked Time" Sulu drops by Ensign Williams’ quarters.
As you can see from the clip, members of the crew will appear in Red Shirt Diaries, (with the exception of Uhura) they will be off-camera or cropped. Here is a clip from episode 5 "The Enemy Within" with Williams dealing with (half of) Captain Kirk.
Each episode will be 3 minutes long. The first season of Red Shirt Diaries will cover the first 10 episodes of Star Trek, but the team behind the show hope to return and finish up the the rest of TOS season 1 with a second season of webisodes. Episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Monday starting next week.
