I thought the episode was terrible, and blame could be on the directing and the script. Scenes felt forced which at times were laughable, and I'm normally forgiving when watching these projects because I know it's a fan film. This episode just felt as if they had to complete something out of the can just to see what they CAN do. I'm a BIG opponent to retroactive characterizations, meaning importing 21st century sensibilities into a series or production who couldn't look that far ahead into the future. The dialogue for the women cast members are too 2013 for me, the lines should be how the lines were in the 1960's. It comes off laughable when Kirk, whose dialogue is true to Shatner from 60's is chatting with a woman who CLEARLY is speaking dialect from 2013, it doesn't flow- -it's like those SNL skits where characters are definitely in the wrong place at the wrong time. You can't have the males speaking in one way and the women talking in another way--it's silly. I'm all about being a progressive but Star Trek had it's own unique way of getting that across but yaking it up was more in the line of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Donations are the least of STC's troubles, it's the amatuer writing is where they desperately need donations.
