I’m still absolutely thrilled at what a perfect pastiche of the original Star Trek series this fan-made project is.
This is a sequel to the original series episode “The Tholian Web,” and written by the same writer, Judy Burns. It also has echoes of the Next Generation episode “Second Chances.”
Previous episodes here.
Nice! I didn’t think we were getting another one after the terrible new fan film rules came out. I guess this is the last, one, huh?
It was a pretty good one, all in all. I guess this is as fine a candidate for final episode as any—beats the hell out of Turnabout Intruder as a finale.
I was a little lost at first because I had very foggy memories from my recent Enterprise rewatch of the episode with the Defiant in the mirror universe. I couldn’t even remember if it was an Enterprise episode or maybe a previous Continues episode I’d forgotten, but I thought this followed on those events somehow. Turns out it was just another Tholian Web sequel, with yet more weird consequences of stuff that happened in that interphasic space. Very fruitful plot stuff, that interphasic space.
The producers say we will get three more episodes:
That’ll be 11, fewer than the 13 they wanted to make, but at least we still have some more to look forward to.
Oh, that’s good news!
