I agree. I didn't mean that as an insult to Cawley. I have great respect for the man and his work. I also agree about Spock. I haven't seen any of the newest guy. But the original was the best. He pretty much nailed Spock's character to a "T". But you have to remember that these guys are not professional actors by any stretch. So the fact that they do what they do is impressive enough in my book.

I still have to watch those phase II shows or whatever they are called. I have the link on my computer but I've never taken the time to watch them. People seem to like them.

The production values of the episodes have gotten better and better.

Even if the actors don't look much like the originals, they still portray their characters closer to the originals than the newbies did in jj-trek (except for Karl Urban of course) So far, my favorite episode is "World Enough And Time" starring George Takei as Sulu. Followed closely by "To Serve All My Days" starring Walter Koenig as Chekov. For me, nothing..especially jj-trek...beats good ol' Star Trek The Original Series!!! I think it's great that somebody took the initiative to produce top quality continuation episodes of what may possibly be the greatest sci-fi adventure ever undertaken. Abrams should have taken a similar route, in my opinion. I commend them on their fantastic work and look forward to new episodes as they are completed.
I think Star Trek Phoenix is the only fan series produced whose acting doesn't absolutely repel me. including Star Trek Odyssey.

Agreed. I was impressed. Don't know why he's not on the new one.

Watch them in order and you'll appreciate the improvement in production, acting, etc.
