New Star Trek: The Animated Series Fan Film
Fans who enjoyed Star Trek: The Animated Series will be pleased to hear that it lives on, courtesy of Curt Danhauser.
And Let the Heavens Fall, the first new animated Star Trek in thirty-five years, has been completed and is online at Danhauser’s Guide to the Animated Star Trek website. And Let the Heavens Fall tells the story of what happens when the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise comes across a planet with a pre-industrial civilization that seems to be sending radio transmissions into space. While rendering aid to a crippled courier ship in orbit of the planet, they wonder if the two situations are related.
Created on the Macintosh using iMovie, QuickTime Pro, Adobe PhotoShop and Sound Studio 3, the fan film is a half-hour long and in three parts.
In addition to the newly-finished episode, Danhauser’s site offers an episode guide to Star Trek: The Animated Series, with a synopsis, cast of characters, photos and notes for each episode of the series.
