Con Mans Spectrum #0 by Alan TudykMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Interesting comic which sets up the firefly-like universe of ConMan's fictional universe. Too bad that the story doesn't seem to progress past issue 1 (maybe do a spin-off? ;-) ) Maybe I should check out issue 1 on Amazon. Con Man is (was?) one of those crowdfunded mini series (now on the comicon channel on Amazon) that

I came across this Trekzone Axanar interview. This is part II, the Alec Peters part, Part I was a bit of a train-wreck. You do get some clips from part I with Alec, but it's clear that Alec shouldn't be doing interviews (or be online really) - the focus should be on finishing these two mini Axanar parts now that the big movie can't be done. By the way, where are the perks? Some perks should

What does it say that I am more excited about web series than what's coming on TV? Here is a clip of some promo/side material to promote Blade of Honor with Battlestar's original Apollo who passed away recently
I love really engaged kickstarters and getting little unexpected notes from kickstarter campaigns. Here is one that came earlier this week from a Dr. Seuss-like star trek book.
The other day I stumbled across an indiegogo campaign for a re-make of the Commodore 64 (along with a handheld companion). Wondering how long until we see Amiga remakes ;-)
Captain Pike, where are you?
It's been a while since we've heard any peeps from the Captain Pike star trek fan film. That's the one thing I dislike about crowdfunded stuff (even if I don't contribute to it) - the lack of information or progress reports. It would be nice to know that the people behind it are still chugging along - even at a slow pace.

[SPOILERS - if you have not see it yet, go see it] A couple of summers ago, while driving around in Greece, I was listening to Trek.fm (best time to try new podcasts is when you are driving a lot!) In one of their shows (the continuing mission) they explore fan made productions that continue the stories set in the Trek universe - and Star Trek Horizon was one of these productions.After a long time
Star Trek Renegades (near the end?)
The Star Trek: Renegades kickstarter, as of this writing, still has about 10 days to go, and they still need another $100k to raise their minimum goals for creating episode 2. The stretch goal for this, at least the first one, is $600k, which I really doubt that they will make. The first stretch goal means that they will also make episode 3 in this round. While the story of Renegades
Captain Pike (Kickstarter #2)

Seems like Captain Pike is back, with a second kickstarter (or is it an indiegogo campaign?) going to finish off episode 1. It looks quite promising, and it's the second fan film (or independent Star Trek production in case people are offended by the term 'fan film') that takes a character from the original Trek series, that we've seen once on screen, and getting their back story. Wonder how
