How many of you want to see more episodes of the original Star Trek? How many people want to see the series end properly, after its' planned, five seasons? I know I do, and now, you can.

That is right, new episodes of The Original Series are being made! Unfortunatly, it does not feature the original cast. A team of people, along with Cow Creek Films, are filming and producing new episodes, thier mission is to continue, the Five Year Mission.

They currently have two episodes filmed with two on the way!

The Season Four premier, "Come What May," and the second episode, "In Harm's Way."

They have two more episodes planned for a 2006 release, An episode titled, "What Lies Beneath," which will be episode 4:04. The episode preceeding it, 4:03, will be titled, "To Serve All My Days." This episode will be guest starring Walter Koenig! He will apparently be comming back as "Checkov, with a twist." Guest stars for episode 4:04, ar yet to be announced.

The best part is, you don't have to pay to see these episodes, you don't even need a T.V. Every one of these episodes are a available for download, for free, on thier website, http://5yearmission.com/ They are a non-profit organization and are simply doing this to continue the series that was ended so unjustly.

I thought that these people deserved a mention, they are putting in thier time and effort acting, writing, producing, directing, editing, and uploading, these episodes, what do they gain in return, as far as I can tell, nothing.
The episode carefully uses knowledge from the "future," in the story line. As well, they do not, leave the original Star Trek, alone, they continue on the saga, using concepts and ideas from past episodes, for example, who remembers Planet Gateway? It is incorporated into "In Harm's Way."

Allthough the episodes are not high budget, top of the line, Hollywood productions, I know that I eagerly look forward to the next two episodes, as well as the rest of the series!

It looks like the ship has set sail again, Live Long, and Prosper.

The British remake of the original series? That's gotta be good. Right?

I've seen New Voyages. It's really good (and it isn't a British remake, it's a fanfilm). The first two eps (already released) are fantastic and they have two episodes due to be released: one written by two former DS9 writers and another written by TOS and TNG writer D.C. Fontana and guest-starring Walter Koening. :)

I'm having a little trouble downloading anything but the Spanish version. I'm going to try the 2nd episode. I watched the trailer, which is the opening credits. It's a hoot. :p

Owen. I downloaded the 2nd episode. It is so much fun. Very retro. Review to come later.

I watched most of "In Harms Way". This is so much fun, you won't believe it. :D

It references the Gateway planet and the planet killer machines. Some of the actors are a little amateurish, but some are very good. There are surprise guest stars (If I told you, it wouldn't be a surprise. :p) . The sets, music and sound effects are perfect. The costumes are very close. The special effects are similar to the original "Star Trek".


I'm saving the ending for tomorrow. I can't wait. :)

Has anyone downloaded to a DVD? I have a burner but I've never tried it with DVDs. I want to go buy some blank ones to record all the episodes.


OK. All, right. The jig is up. I'm a Trekker from waaaay back, and I'm in "Star Trek" heaven. :p Does David know about this?

There was a piece in SFX magazine here in the UK that two guys are trying to get a new Sci-Fi sitcom off the ground. This might be what you're thinking of.

The tone would be Red Dwarf meets the Royal Navy - but I don't remember what the proposed series was to be called.

I have burnt the episodes to DVD, I have even added in a cool menu that I made all by myself. I even put an sdvertisment for SG-1 on it, lol, that is me.

Give me a minute Hatusu, I will check out the site.

Yeah, I see your problem Hats:D. If you want, PM me your e-mail addy and I'll e-mail you the episode. (Nice and zipped, of course ;))

Sorry, it seems as though I am stumped. lol.

I appoligize to everyone, anyone who wants the episode but cannot download it please PM me (prefferably)I will send you the episodes by whatever method you prefer. I have the video files, and the original Zip files, which are considerably smaller it would be easier to send those, but I am willing to do whatever you prefer. If anyone is looking to burn the episodes to DVD, I created a menu for the episodes as well, I can send you the DVD file and you can use it to burn straight to DVD.

If you are still not satisfied, you can contact the shows producers at [email protected] they should help you, they helped me find a working mirror, when I downloaded them.

However it would be much easier and faster if I sent you the files, I would be willing to do so, all you need to do is ask, there are three options of file types that you can get. As I have said before, the Zip files, which is best for transfering, the video files, I would not recomend this because the Zip files can be unziped easily and boom, you have video files. Then there is the DVD file, it is quite large, around 3.94 GB, however any DVD file will be approximatley this size and this one comes with menus and an SG-1 preview at the begining, I would recomend this if you are planing to burn the episodes to DVD, you do not need to spend time making menus.

Just a note, if you are planning to burn the episodes to DVD you have to have software that will copy a DVD folder straight onto a disc, most will do this, Nero is one that I know of that will. Also if you have DVD playing software on your computer as well as a DVD reader of somesort, a DVD folder can be played on your computer.

If anyone has any questions or problems, please e-mail or PM me with the details and I will help you with it.

Owen, I'll get back to you on copying to DVDs as soon as I buy some. My computer can do that. I think I have the software, but I'm not sure. I'll have to read up on it in my manual.

Ok, I can guide you through it if you want, just give me some details like the software that you have and the harware that you have.

Lets hope so!....

Whats the skinny on this Owen, did they get scripts or ideas from planned episodes storylines from the original series that were never produced?, or did they get the ideas for the episodes from ST books or did they come up with there own ideas?. Any info on these questions would be appreciated...thanx.

As far as I'm aware, the scripts are toally new material - but identical in theme and tone to Classic Trek.

As I mentioned before, I've only seen a few photos so far - I can't downloadthe eps 'cos I'm on a public computer. Looks great though.
