    This is a heads-up on a Finnish Star Trek/Babylon 5 spoof that has just been released this week.

    From the Web site:

    Finnish with optional English subtitles. More info and download links available at http://www.starwreck.com .

    I've watched the trailers and this thing looks very weird but incredibly well made! I'll definitely be watching it tonight!

    Well Marko, you don't have to worry about the weirdness. This feature created by your countrymen is extremely well made! I just hope the acting isn't a depiction of the typical Finn... [​IMG]

    The storyline truly is over the top with every character we've met in both original series having been exagerated and twisted beyond belief, but not beyond recognition. The settings are also extremely humourous, going as far as including actual washrooms and vending machines on the bridges! And what these guys have accomplished in the special effects department with their makeshift digital studio (a.k.a. "the living room") is simply astounding! Even the virtual camerawork was extremely well made with no jerky motions and maybe only a couple of awkward camera positions (the Kickstart's tractor beam grabbing hold of the Emperor's shuttle for example -- the beam is hardly visible).

    The production team have produced a milestone here. In the past, the creation of such movies were only within the reach of major motion picture studios with deep pockets. But now, one group of individuals has accomplished a true first: an independently produced volunteer-based feature length sci-fi thriller (okay, a spoof [​IMG] ) containing highly credible special effects that rival the output of major motion picture studios.

    Everyone who's into sci-fi should watch this movie at least once! It's great entertainment and a sight to behold!
