    Brilliant! Inspired guest casting, I loved the Romulans, and Nicola Bryant plays the scheming megalomaniac very well!
    Absolutely the best I've seen from them. It's a perfect fit for the end of TOS, and it's a crying shame that the greed of one person means that fan-films will most likely be dead after the Continues finale.

    Their casting for that returning Romulan character was insane. Instantly recognized the character and did a double take. Unbelievable.
    Same here! When she first appeared, for a split-second I thought they must be using footage from the original series.

    The whole episode does such a great job of capturing the spirit of TOS. I can't get over the attention to detail. Really looking forward to going back and watching the other episodes.

    When first in full costume and makeup, Amy had a picture taken on the planet set, made it B&W and sent it to her brother. He asked her why she was sending him pictures of their mom.

    Anecdotes like this make me wish we had more 'behind-the-scenes' or 'making of' stuff from the Continues team. Sure the short bloopers bits are nice, but I want to see the fun, enjoyment, love and nerdy goofing around that goes into their hard work.

    This episode really ramped up in intensity as it moved along, towards a terrific cliffhanger.

    Joanne Linville's daughter is her spitting image, and while she's not quite the actress her mother was (who studied under Stella Adler), she did a fine job, and it was absolutely brilliant casting!

    The planet surface set was awesome, and I wish they'd had it earlier in the series.

    The fight was retro-awesome, but I do wish Kirk or Spock would do the hands-clasped together hammer punch on someone's back! (That was always my favorite attack move, because it is so utterly ineffective in real life! LOL)

    I also would've had the red-shirt die. I would've had the landing party split up, and the Automated Avenger sneak up an kill the red-shirt. Then have Kirk and Spock run to his scream, finding him dead, and no one or no thing around. Then, twenty seconds or so later, they'd be attacked by the AA, and would battle it out just as they did in the episode.

    Can't wait for Part 2 ! Although, my anticipation is bittersweet, knowing it will be the last hour of this amazing series Vic's given us. (I wanna re-watch part 1, but will wait 'til part 2 comes out in three weeks, so it's fresh on my mind.)

    This is absolutely the best ending and send off for Star Trek TOS possible! This series should be considered cannon bringing the total episode number to an even 90. Well done Vic and congratulations! Loved every moment of it.

    Amazing, beautiful and emotional! Made me miss proper Trek and get all nostalgic.
    I loved how they subtly changed the FX style to look more TMP when the Enterprise returned to Earth.. they even had the guy in the space suit who waves to the refit in TMP and TWOK!
    All in all, it was a fitting book-end to the original series and the nods to the beginning of TMP were well done and not heavy handed.

    That was excellent!
    Started getting bored once they got to Earth, but the rest of the episode was so fantastic it more than makes up for the weak ending.
    Although I did like the transitioning between TOS and TMP. That was cool.
    Sad there'll be no more...

    I have to say, on principle I dislike fanfilms. It always seems like such a waste of resources. If you're going to go that deep into sets, costumes, effects, etc-- make your own thing.

    That said, I admire Continues for their restraint. Most fanfilms can't reign themselves in and push things to a ridiculous level. I admire Continues for being able to stay so perfectly on tone with TOS. I'd be a big fan if I get past "Kirk's" voice.

    After 5 decades, I finally feel as if I have some Star Trek closure. What a stellar ending! I actually cried at the end. The scenes with McKennah were so touching, and the speech by Kirk really pulled at my heartstrings. The most beautiful moment was on the bridge though, with Kirk alone in the shadows with his ship. (I really felt like I was looking at Shatner there for a few moments) It felt so full circle...so perfect.

    The sets, the music, the timing, the acting....all fantastic! I'm absolutely amazed at this series and what Vic Mignogna and crew have accomplished. They really pulled off something everyone thought was undoable. My sincerest Thanks to him for putting his heart and soul into making these episodes and completing what was left hanging for so many years.

    Watched it this evening... that was a pretty great and emotional finale to the series. So many hommages and references to other Trek -lore, be it visually (the saucer separation, TMP -Uniform, Discovery and other ship models in the Admirals office), musically (themes and cues from TMP, TWOK,...) or by quoting ideas from novels (loved the Warp -curve bit from the 'Federation' novel).
    This one moved me like no ST episode since 2003... especially the last ten minutes, it just felt RIGHT! Kirk's speech pointed to the current worldwide chaos but ended on an optimistic note.

    There is so much to love in this series and I am grateful to Vic Mignogna and everyone involved that they cared and gave it their best! :-) <3

    Also I haven't seen anyone mention in any reviews online that on Admiral Nogura's desk is a Hugo award, loved that since they won several of them for writing on the original series.

    I want to say thank you all for bringing us TOS Trek back and really ending the series the way I had imagined. Really touching end and final bridge shot with Kirk.... You all should be proud to have done a loving continues. Thank you once again.

    TOS style or new, what is sad is that instead of getting behind something of this caliber, CBS and Paramount would much
    prefer to provide fans, Star Drek (miss spelled on purpose) as opposed to something meaningful to reinforce the brand.
    Continues, gets it and got it with little to no money. I guess Lennon was right, All you need is Love.

    To the cast and crew of Continues, THANK YOU! for providing us that feeling again and filling the void. BRAVO!
    Now where am I going to get my Trek fix. Any recommendations for a good support group are appreciated.

    I can't say anymore than what has already been said.

    If anything, that episode alone should be required viewing for any serious Trek fan.

    Vimeo has all the STContinues episodes also and they are HD, I believe.
