Just watched some awesome fan films...

Worth a look

This one features Original cast members from TOS, TNG and Voyager - its the best...


this one is as good as it gets for TOS - the sets are brilliant


and a decent series here:



they are all worthwhile but acting is below par at times and FX very cartoonish. Sets are very good overall

^^ Of Gods and Men was really cool.  Put together by the same people responsible for Phase II (the fan production).  Haven't seen the third one on your list .  Will have to check into that.
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

If you want to know how much of a star trek geek I am, I have the Technical Manual.  :)  Apparently not worth too much though.

Well, Scotty didn't even think of it as a punishment. Who started that fight?  At least Scotty finished it.I also liked the episode By Any Other Name where Scotty gets the Kelvin alien gunned out of his head with that old bottle of scotch.

I was simply reminded by Slarti''s reference to a Technical Manual, not implying that such a thing would ever be a detriment or turn off to Scotty.

 ^ I have that old Tech Manual, as well as the Enterprise Blueprints also by Franz Joseph--    this'll age me but does anyone remember the Giant Poster Books?   They were folded posters with a scene from the show on one side and a bunch of neat trivia and stuff on the other.   I still have a few.

I used to have the Enterprise Blueprints. And i remember some giant poster books from the mid-1970s-those the ones? I had the one with a big photo of the Tholians creating their web, and another of Spock giving the Vulcan sign. I should have held onto all that stuff.

Those were the days my friend, I thought they'd never end....
 
Always loved the technical journal reference by Scotty after the knock out, slug out brawl with the Kingons.  Started over a reference to the Enterprise being a garbage scowl if memory serves me correct.Smile

Does anyone actually speak Klingon?  That person will truly win the geek-fest grand prize.

^meh...I learned Latin, which will only come in handy should I find myself in ancient Rome.   Which would actually be pretty freaking cool.  My interest in ancient Rome is probably why Bread and Circuses is one of my favorite TOS episodes (I knew there was a way to keep this post on topic).  Cool
