The crew of the Farragut has returned to spacedock with The Crossing, their fifth installment in their long-running series. Green-lit after a successful Kickstarter campaign, which broke the $20,000 mark out of a $15,000 target, it’d been in the post-production phase for just over a year. Initially premiering back in February at the Farpoint Convention, it’d come out to strong word of mouth and positive comments and so we’d been excited to check it out. Continuing with the ever-popular Mirror, Mirror storyline, they expanded both on the TOS episode as well as bringing in elements from their own earlier Farragut episode, For Want of a Nail.

After a successful Kickstarter in 2014 (they more than doubled their $10,000 target by taking in $22,600), writer/director Tommy Kraft and his team have finally delivered a fan film that’s pretty darned good. Their backer community had been a bit worried with the delays (the original release date had been set for December of 2014), but it would seem the wait was well worth it.
A new unofficial Star Trek comic has hit the interwebs, and we’ve gotta say – we’re hooked.
