We’ve been excited about the Blood and Fire episode of the fan produced Star Trek Phase II series for months. It’s now available – though only if you download it (as of Dec 27, 2008 at least) without an option for a streaming web version – yet *UPDATE** It’s on YouTube we’ve linked the episodes below!!.

Yet though this episode has some of the best special effects EVER for a fan made Star Trek flick – some of the early chatter has been about the 3.5 minute homo-erotic scene. While it’s not my own particular preference – it’s fair to have this considering that the original Trek was full of its own gratuitous scenes and no one can argue that Jeri Ryan’s super-tight outfit on Voyager served any practicial purpose other than to stimulate males of all ages. (That said I wonder if the Star Trek New Voyages ppl could line up someone that would agree to a skin tight Jeri Ryan outfit...)

That small scene aside – this is an AWESOME first part of an episode that is superior to anything i’ve seen yet from Star Trek XI. Too bad this is set for the big screen. Best line – Kirk’s nephew is a ‘red’ shirt – so Scotty say – ‘Relax Jim we don’t put bullseyes on the red shirts anymore!”

 

OHH and it looks like it’s now on YouTube – so here ya go – enjoy

Star Trek Phase II : Blood and Fire…30 yrs later… September 5, 2008

Not far now friends….
More than 30 years after it should have first aired Star Trek Phase 2: Blood and Fire is almost…almost ready for airing..on the web at least.

Blood and Fire is in our opinion the best of the best for Star Trek Phase II. It’s all action and battle against the mortal enemy of the classic crew..the Klingons..

Pursued and damaged by repeated Klingon attacks, the crew of the Enterprise must respond to the distress call from a Federation research ship. In a matter of hours the ship and crew will be consumed by a nearby star and the crew of the Enterprise will be consumed by an mysterious horror that threatens both ships as the Klingons watch and wait.

Yes this is a fan product from the Star Trek New Voyages people but look at the footage from the trailer…it looks fraking amazIng.

Star Trek Phase II Set for a New Voyage February 19, 2008

Looks like Star Trek New Voyages (the awesome fan produces classic trek stuff) is changing its name to Star Trek Phase II.

Now for me personally Star Trek Phase II holds a lot of meaning. I’ve had a copy of Star Trek Phase II on my shelf for many years.

In 1977 Star Trek Phase II would have brought back Star Trek to network TV.

A footnote in Star Trek history, few people realize how close Star Trek Phase II came to full-scale production.

All of the actors were signed except Leonard Nimoy, whose Spock character would have been replaced by a young Vulcan, Xon. Sets and props were designed and constructed. New models, including a never seen model of the U.S.S. Enterprise, were built. A special effects company was hired, and scripts were written, including a two-hour teleplay that would have been the pilot for the series. But, the plans for the network were canceled, and Paramount decided to shift gears to feature film production, shutting down the television series — less than two weeks before the beginning of principal photography. The result of this decision was Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

This is the story of the lost Star Trek series. Including full behind-the-series information on the show that almost-but didn’t-happen. Full of never-before-seen color artwork, storyboards, blueprints, technical information and photos: Star Trek Phase II reveals the vision behind Gene Roddenberry’s lost glimpse of the future.

So will New Voyages recreate what Star Trek Phase II might have been? We can only hope…
