It's the launch of the new Federation Star ship USS Wallace. Everyone is excited, they depart for their first mission. When trouble arises back at the station, the USS Wallace joins the battle.

I hope you enjoy the movie, we had fun making it. There are a few errors, this is our first time making a movie like this (all blue screen) etc...

Thanks!

Good, very good, in fact SUPER GOOD!

I liked everything, except the Captian's acting, so I gave it a 5, can't wait for Episode 2. Bravo *claps*.

Well, um, the visuals were good. That's really the extent of anything positive I can say about it. Sorry.

yea, i agree, the visuals were nice, but as for the story line.. it was ok. Only part i didnt like was the Captain and his weird facial expressions... I really didnt get why he was looking crazy the whole time...

Hey, when we first made the movie, we meant it to be funny! I guess we have to make it more clear.

Basically, the captain is over confident. The ship stalls right when its launching, the tactical officer is a moron and axidentaly blows up the entire station!

Hehehe..

I agree with all the folks... good movie.... but... the captain looked like Mr. Bean Jr. Maybe you could use that in episode 2... just a thought...

ok here we go.

First off I gotta give you guys credit. It was a pretty good film. But there are somethings that were unacceptable. For example. the captain's acting was rediculous. He shakes around like an old woman with parkensins disease. Why is that.

Also the captains eyes move around in his skull more than an animated PIXAR character.
But it is genious how you are setting this up like an old 80's science fiction sitcom. It'as a different and unique aproach.

But most of all I LOVE IT when the captain says "damn it your an idiot!"
That is the most realistic reaction I have ever seen in a film. Good job.

But sorry I have to give you a 3 simply becuase the captain was annoying to me. But it really was a good project I await ep2

PEACE OUT

When we made the movie, we were trying to make it so it was funny. (ie, having the ship stall, the captain retarted, the tactical officer blow up the station etc...) But we didn't capture it that well.

It look's like the captain/people are serious at some times, yet stupid at other times!

In episode 2, we have come up with an idea, to make this all clear. Thanks again for all your input!

awe MAN! I wish I would've know the captain was acually supposed to be retarded! I would have given you a four. I just thought he couldn't act.


LMAO!!! That makes your film sooooo much funnier!
No hard feelings about the three. I just didn't know.

I still think he didn't play the carachter retarded that well, he was too smart and was too much into his stupid facial expresions. And I just noticed the voice changes from begining to end. But don't be mad I said all that about him - I still gave you a 5 cool

Better than any of the real Star Trek episodes! (I'm not much of a Star Trek fan) I think it would have been better if the actors juiced up the comedy a bit... I was almost half way through the movie before I realized it was supposed to be funny!

Well...
"Hy enterprise, i'm the guy on the screen. Were being under attack. Oh now.. Ahh.... How sad. Well, i guess i'll just go back to drama class and learn how to act better, and speak better!" I mean, come on. The rest of the movie was good. but, some of the parts had the worst acting skillls i have ever seen in my life.
