Dunno if anyone has seen these, but a bunch of fans put together a series of hour-long episodes intended to carry on the TOS legacy. I guess some litigation with another Trek fan-production company has caused Paramount to revise its policy for fan-produced Trek shows, which is helping Star Trek Continues come to an end after 11 episodes.
I haven't watched the whole series yet, but I loved the Mirror, Mirror sequel episode.
Apparently, according to a friend of mine who is really into STC, the two-part conclusion to the series is great and ties the series into the first movie (Star Trek the Motion Picture).
Anyone else watch these? What do you think?

The mimicry is amazing, but the original characters don't fit in. The counselor character, besides being a totally unnecessary nod to 24th century ship's counselors, is very badly acted. The drama tries too hard to be oh, so poignant, to the point that they overdo it. I've only seen some of the episodes, but the Mirror, Mirror sequel made no sense: most of the crew suddenly realizes what jerks everyone is and reforms? Nonsense. The projected-to-the-Civil-War episode was too obviously just a bunch of Civil War reenactors who wanted to be in Star Trek, and the angst beat itself over my head.
So, it's great as a reproduction, but they're so busy mimicking something else they forget to make their original stuff good in itself.
