Star Trek: Phase II - Enterprise Fly-Under

I'm a big fan of Star Trek: Phase II, previously known as Star Trek: New Voyages. These are produced by fans of the original Star Trek series, often using scripts written for the aborted TV Series Star Trek: Phase II, which was canceled when Paramount Studios went ahead with Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and also using fan-written scripts, and, in the case of the magnificent two-part episode Blood and Fire, a script written for Star Trek: The Next Generation by David Gerrold, the writer of the classic Star Trek episode The Trouble With Tribbles, which Gerrold both adapted for Star Trek: New Voyages and directed.

The episodes seen thus far have done a brilliant job of recreating the feeling of the original Star Trek TV series from the 1960s, and, in the coming months, it's going to start ringing in changes to cover the transition in the series from what we saw on TV to what Star Trek looked like in the movies. In a "mini-episode" introducing Brian Goss as Captain Kirk, replacing James Cawley, who's concentrating on his behind-the-scenes role, we also see the beginnings of the refit of the USS Enterprise: It's a lovely bit of design combining the best parts of the original series design with the swept-back, wing-like pylons and flattened, rather than cylindrical engine nacelles, and visible photon torpedo tubes at the base of the "neck" between the "saucer section" and lower hull of the Enterprise.

So, here's a lovely "Beauty shot" of the new Enterprise in action.
