Watch This: 'Chasing The Infinite Sky' - New 'Star Trek' Short Fan Film
"Albatross welcomes you. Prepare for docking." Sometimes fans come up with tributes that rival the actual work, and this is a great example of that. This new Star Trek fan film, titled Chasing The Infinite Sky, was released at the end of July timed with the opening of Star Trek Beyond. Created by Albert Martinez entirely in his own spare time, with VFX co-created by Ricardo Elliott, the short is about Captain Storm piloting a new experimental ship called the U.S.S. Albatross. It focuses more on space travel than anything else, inspired by J.J. Abrams' visuals, but it's still seriously impressive and enjoyable to watch even if you're not the biggest Trekkie. There isn't much of a story but that doesn't bother me because it's so nice to look at.
Described on YouTube: "I created this fanmade conceptual SHORT piece simply to express my love for the franchise. With a big dream, some green screen and cgi I tried to put together something nice to share. This quick story takes place in an alternate timeline and is meant to highlight Star Fleet's passion for space exploration. Captain Storm has been given a remarkable assignment: to take the Albatross on its first long distance interstellar road trip, utilizing it's newly refitted experimental warp drive." Chasing the Infinite Sky was made by Albert Martinez entirely in his own spare time. And yes, he admits there are a few grammar errors because "I was in a rush to share it with my fellow fans to celebrate the latest Star Trek." Thoughts?
