OK, The internet apparently ate my reply.
I just finished watching part 1. While it did have some slow parts, I think it is a good first outing. Overall I liked it.
At first I did not like the office building setting, although once they met the insurance guy, it took on a sort of hitchhiker's guide vibe that was nice, but not really trek like to me.
I noticed a couple of costuming issues, first being the sizes. The doctor seems like his is a size too small, and the bridge crew seems like theirs are all a size too big.
I also am noticing allot of fan films seem to have actors with beards, which is not only out of place in TOS, it is out of place in anything trying to be a retro 1960's TV show.
The sick bay set was a little off putting, clearly it was in the same office building as the insurance company. The least they could have done was cover the plugs and thermostat.
