About Star Trek Continues
a fan-created non-canon web series set in the Star Trek universe produced by a non-profit charity — Trek Continues Inc. — and Dracogen (formerly co-produced by Far From Home LLC and Farragut Films). The series is an unofficial direct continuation of the third and last season of Star Trek: The Original Series, whose visual and storytelling features have been reproduced to recreate the same look and feel.
As with all such Star Trek fan productions, use of copyrighted and trademarked properties from the original series is allowed so long as the production is non-commercial. A portion of the funds necessary to produce the episodes was raised through successful Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns, to which thousands of backers contributed.
Star Trek Continues won a Webby Award for “People’s Choice – Long Form Drama” in 2016, a Geekie Award for “Best Web Series” in 2014, and numerous Telly and Accolade awards. The series has been very positively received by critics, who have praised the quality of the production and stated that the show has set a new standard for Star Trek fan films.
