It's a hobby.
I don't have the resources or the talent necessary to deal with fan films or audio productions, but when I started playing with it I wanted to have a visual aspect, and to do something new.
So working with the massive photo-archives available at Trek Core, I started playing with the idea of using modified, re-purposed images to create a comic-like experience.
This opening section (which will appear over the next several weeks in six parts--a prologue and five chapters) represents the introductory attempt to create a new set of adventures based on a Saber-class vessel, the Marie Curie, which is a science-research ship which (or there wouldn't be any story) contrives, of course, to fall continually into trouble.
A number of minor figures from the Next Generation era have roles in this series, including
Moriarty--the sentient hologram
Bettina Haro--the Bolian whose identity was once usurped by an alien to try to dupe Picard
Nella Daren--Picard's brief love interest he had transferred off the Enterprise
Vash--Picard's ongoing "bad girl" love interest
Phillipa Louvois--Picard's "old flame" who had to decide if Data was just a machine
It's a patische, I'm an amateur, and I'm learning as I go, so if you comment, be gentle.

That said, go below the fold if you'd like to experience my version of Star Trek:
