Just Discovered – Star Trek: Of Gods and Men

After perusing the inter-webs, I happened to stumble onto something I thought you’d all enjoy.  It’s an independent fan film that brings classic Star Trek  actors Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig back together, along with fan favorites Tim Russ (Tuvok), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim), and many others.  The film was made with virtually no budget in 2006.  For long-time fans that’s not what’s important.  It’s the fact these actors were willing to put something together for the 40th anniversary of the series and take no money for doing so.

The story takes place in an alternate dimension, which explains how all these characters meet up.  It should be noted that not all the actors reprise their famous roles, some simply wanted to be part of the film, so they play different roles entirely.  Here’s a teaser trailer for the project.

The movie was directed by Tim Russ in three acts, back in 2006.  The first act was released on December 22, 2007.  Today you can watch all three acts on the official website.  The reason for the significant delay was due to the special effects.

Regardless of what you think of the series as a whole, you have to appreciate everyone who was involved with this project.  Talk about being real diehard believers in the franchise.  So what do you all think of Of Gods & Men?
