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.
