Super-authentic ‘Star Trek’ fan series warps into Kickstarter

“Star Trek Into Darkness” was a monster in the “Star Trek” franchise. It made over $460 million worldwide, more than double its $190 million budget.
That’s great and all, but to be honest I had a better time watching a humble fan-made episode in a Web series called “Star Trek Continues” that was shot for some $40,000.
For fans of the original “Star Trek,” this tribute has mind-blowing authenticity. Now it has beamed into Kickstarter with a campaign to raise $100,000 to make three more episodes.
Produced by Farragut Films and DracoGen Strategic Investments, the nonprofit series stars Vic Mignogna as Captain Kirk, Todd Haberkorn as Mr. Spock, and features the late James Doohan’s son Chris in his father’s role as Scotty as well as Grant Imahara of “Mythbusters” as Lieutenant Sulu.
