Fan Trek Episode Debuts

A fan-produced "lost" episode of Star Trek, subtitled New Voyages, "World Enough and Time," has debuted online and is available for free download at the Magic Time Web site.

The episode, starring original Trek star George Takei, also premiered at a theater in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Aug. 23.

The movie was made by New York uber-Trekkie James Cawley, who also plays Capt. James T. Kirk, and his group of friends, who have been creating episodes of the original Star Trek, picking up the mythology after the events of the third and last season of the original series.

"World Enough and Time" was co-written and directed by Marc Scott Zicree, who wrote episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. It centers on a mishap that strands Sulu (Takei) in a temporal anomaly for decades.
