ACTION SEQUENCES TAKE CENTER STAGE IN EPISODE ONE!

The studios attempt to produce not only a dramatic plot line to the series, but also a series with some action packed scenes to feed the parched throats of Trekkies looking for a little more excitement in fan productions, seems to have struck a nerve recently when the series was previewed by some SciFi fans in California this past weekend.
If the high marks on their reviews weren't about the sexy actresses playing their parts, it was certainly for the visual effects presented in the episode. Two reviews gave the studio "high kudos" for bringing back "the boogie man feel to the Borg" and especially for presenting the Borg Queen as a "nasty villain." 

Series producer/creator/director, D. R. Quintana, says that the series at this point has crossed over a ton of hurdles, making the studio believe that the world-wide release for the series just may be around the corner. The studio has aimed for a winter release, but fans are pushing for a fall release via email to get the series launched; something the studio is considering.

"We've had to do a little bit of this and a little bit of that just to make everyone happy," said Quintana. "I've come down to the conclusion that Trekkies are just picky 'sons-of-bitches' who won't ever be happy with anyone's contribution to the Roddenberry universe. I've receive emails all of the time from Trekkie trolls who are shooting down the series and they've never seen it; giving heavy weight against us for something they just don't like, just out of principle for attempting to do something different. It hasn't swayed us at all, but it has certainly showed us what we're up against in dealing with bonafide Trekkie trollers."


The California reviews did provide a strong acceptance to the "twenty something" performances throughout the first episode; providing a glimpse into Captain Kirk's statement of "galloping around the cosmos is a game for the young, doctor..." statement in Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan. So, even thought the cast of the series has primary roles filled with veteran actors pretty much in their late 30's and 40's, the reviews gave high marks to the younger cast members who provided solid performances within the first episode.

Quintana added, "We're hoping to embark on stories and plots filled with a wide variety of angles that will catch fan by complete surprise. In a vast landscape where there are many people who want us to succeed as well as many more who want us to fail, we feel like we have nothing to lose by continuing ahead. If people were so impressed by Paramount's dying attempts at re-booting Trek through high octane action CGI junk and bad storytelling, then I am sure we will lose nothing by releasing a better "thought out" and well rounded series to fans on the Internet."

As of today, no release date has been disclosed by the studio.

  1. I searched the internet and found interesting articles concerning your Minotaur episode. After seeing a positive review, posted by a good friend from California, I am patiently awaiting the series launch this winter.

  3. I watched the sneak peek footage on the DVD again after reading this post and I'm sorry that I didn't report that I did notice some interesting technical details from STOS that looked like part of the Minotaur's bridge! I am truly getting the feeling that your series is planing to knock us out with some interesting nostalgia from previous shows and that makes Minotaur a bit more appealing to wonder about.

    Good luck to your team. I too am excited to see what you have planned for us.

  5. I for one recently became a fan, I became aware threw a post at myspace, ST-Beyond Series, I spent 2 days watching 21 episodes, actually 20, episode 3 was missing, I couldn't not watch all the episodes, they were there to consume as eye candy for a Trekkie, I've sought to get the 5 DVD ST-Beyond Series but there unavailable, I'm told they will again be available for a good bargain and Minotaur will also be offered for the same bargain next year, I'm all in, keep up the great work actors and crews
