TNG Fan Film.

Free carpet samples. Lounge chairs. Lots of computer monitors. Some nice, polished wood. 

For some reason, no one has gathered these items for a Next Generation-based fan film production. Throughout the decades, amateur productions have been predominantly set on 23rd Century Constitution-class vessels. In more recent years, productions like "Star Trek Renegades" has reached past the shows of the 24th Century and "Star Trek: Horizon" has looked "back" into the 22nd Century. But there are no current fan web series based during the seven-year television run of TNG. 

Phillip, Daniel, and Darren put on their "fan production" hats and explore why there is this "gap" of fan productions for Next Gen. They discuss whether TNG has a unique fandom, whether there is a lack of enthusiasm for Enterprise-D based web series, and whether something like "Red Shirt Diaries" can be done for the "lower decks" of the NCC-1701-D. Join Earl Grey as they delve into what role they would play in a TNG fan film and how "ENSiGNS" can only be made possible through supporters like you.
