Best Star Trek Fan Films

Did you know that there are a several great Star Trek fan made movies and shows spinoffs. Some are based on the original Star Trek series, and others take different spins on the franchise.

Most of these shows have great special effects, sets, and sound. The hard part about watching them for me is to get over the acting, but I believe they're doing the best job that they can (I know I can't do better, so who am I to criticize).

Below is a list of some of the series that are available:
  • Starship Exeter (based on TOS): A story of the U.S.S. Exeter, crew and commander by Captain John Garrovick.
  • Starship Farragut (based on TOS): A story of the crew of the U.S.S. Farragut (NCC-1647), a Constitution class starship under the command of John T. Carter.
  • Star Trek: Hidden Frontier (based on TNG): A story of the crew of the starship Excelsior and its home base Deep Space 12.
  • Star Trek: Intrepid: Federation and Merchant Service efforts to colonize a sparse region of space far from the Federation core.
  • Star Trek: New Voyages (based on TOS): Trying to complete the original series five-year mission of the Enterprise crew. Note: Walter Koenig (played Chekov [TOS]) and George Takei (played Sulu [TOS]) guest starred in episodes.
  • U.S.S. Hathaway (based on TOS): Takes place during the same time period of events in Star Trek II and III.
  • Star Wreck: A series of Finnish parody movies.
