In a previous article I mentioned my fondness for the fanmade sci-fi series, Star Trek Continues, which came to an end on Monday with the publication on YouTube of its last ever episode, “To Boldly Go: Part II”. I have to admit that I was impressed by the nearly hour-long conclusion to the story began back in mid-October, especially the stylistic nods towards the 1979 cinematic release, Star Trek: the Motion Picture. I honestly didn’t believe that I had that much adolescent Trekkie still left in me but I was proven wrong. Despite my habitual cynicism, I actually found the last ten minutes of the episode, the 11th in the supposed “lost” 4th season of the original three-series 1960s’ show, quite touching. Seriously, what is wrong with me? Is it simply a feeling of nostalgia, the same emotion derived from watching the deliberately Spielbergian Stranger Things on Netflix?
Whatever the case the last episode in the Star Trek Continues series can be watched below along with some background information about the fan-produced show from the main star and jack-of-all-trades, Vic Mignogna.
