This is a massive year in review podcast that covers a LOT of fan films that were released in 2023, with interviews with the filmmakers. The panel gave 359 glowing reviews! The 359 section starts at 50:34 if you want to jump ahead. (Apologies...I had no idea they were using the video from the interview or I would have looked at the camera.)

Adam, Ben, Bill, and Wynde of my favorite Star Trek podcast, The Greatest Generation were nice enough to do some VO for the film--so I sent them all copies on DVD! Ben and Adam opened the box on the May 22nd episode (the video version is linked above), and Wynde even cut in some video from the film and the site! Thanks again for being part of the project everyone! 

If you're not already listening to the podcast and you're a Star Trek fan, you should subscribe. And also subscribe to Ben and Adam's other hit podcast,
