Vic Mignogna talks about the webseries Star Trek Continues with a room full of fans at the 2017 FAN eXpo Canada in Toronto.
Star Trek Continues is a fan-created non-canon web series set in the Star Trek universe produced by a non-profit charity — Trek Continues Inc. — and Dracogen (formerly co-produced by Far From Home LLC and Farragut Films). The series is an unofficial direct continuation of the third and last season of Star Trek: The Original Series, whose visual and storytelling features were reproduced to recreate the same look and feel.
As with all such Star Trek fan productions, use of copyrighted and trademarked properties from the original series was allowed so long as the production was non-commercial. A portion of the funds necessary to produce the episodes was raised through successful Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns, to which thousands of backers contributed.
Star Trek Continues won a Webby Award for “People’s Choice – Long Form Drama” in 2016, a Geekie Award for “Best Web Series” in 2014, and numerous Telly and Accolade awards. The series was very positively received by critics, who praised the quality of the production and stated that the show set a new standard for Star Trek fan films.
After the 11th episode is released in late 2017, the Star Trek Continues series will end.
