11 From our Small-Budget Films Department:

The last two years has seen a renaissance in Star Trek fan films, a subject that is popular with our attendees. All these works conform almost perfectly to the Paramount/CBS Star Trek Fan Film Guidelines.

Shore Leave is please to present nine hours of Alternative films set in the Star Trek universe. Some are follow-on to or are contemporaneous with Alec Peters' Axanar. More are otherwise stories set in his Aurora universe. Some are set in or before Star Trek, some are contemporary with Star Trek: The Next Generation, and one is contemporaneous with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Look our videos in Salon B and watch the Small Budget Film page for an update coming soon.

In memory: Nichelle Nichols

We are saddened by the passing of Star Trek icon Nichelle Nichols.

In addition to her groundbreaking role as Nyota Uhura in the Star Trek series and films, Nichols was known to fans for a variety of roles over the course of her career. Some of her more noted roles include Diane Maza on Gargoyles, Nana Dawson on Heroes, Miriam on Spider-Man: The Animated Series, plus uncounted cameo appearances as either herself or Uhura.

In 1987, Nichols was a guest at Shore Leave 9, in 2001 at Shore Leave 23, in 2007 at Shore Leave 29, and one last time in 2019 at Shore Leave 41.

Nichelle Nichols passed away on July 30, 2022 at the age of 89. She is survived by her son Kyle.

In memory: Kathy Scrimger

We are saddened by the passing of club, committee, and convention founder Kathy Scrimger.

A lifelong fan, Kathy was part of a group of high school friends who, in 1978, together with the members of the Science Fiction Club of Towson, formed a club called the Star Trek Association of Towson (now STAT Club of Maryland) and in 1979, held the first Shore Leave convention.

Kathy Scrimger passed away on July 26, 2022 and is survived by her husband Weston and children Erin and Sean.
