It's simply great, more than just promising. This looks very professional.

When I went to their site, downloaded the first part, not expecting much, to my great amazement this
was well done. Am looking forward to the rest of it !!!

Greetings,

I'll have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this film/animation. Although I question the logic of a ship with only two crew members, especially at that time in history, the story itself captured me and held my attention quite nicely.

Looking forward to future episodes!

Though I question how well the plot will hold together, I was quite surprised by the high-quality animation. That was really a pleasure to watch--which can not be said of, say, Hidden Frontier.

I really enjoyed AURORA, /clap.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':clap:' /> the animation is great and it is an interesting twist..... we have heard about merchant freighters (Harry Mudd, Cyrano Jones etc...) I am looking forward to the next chapters. /clap.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':clap:' />

I would love to see a fifth season of ENTERPRISE done this way since its unlikely at this point that it will return /sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

This is probably the best fan film I have seen since NEW VOYAGES.... the others like HIDDEN FRONTIER I find totally unwatchable....has anyone really noticed how AWFUL the uniforms look in HIDDEN FRONTIER?
I give them credit but............

Might I recommend Starship Exeter for its high quality (especially its never-ending "Tressaurian Insurrection") and The Section 31 Files at DarkerProjects.com for its very high-quality radio programs, which totally avoid the problems of poor costuming and set design? And, of course, I'll be tuning into Aurora Part II.

I have to admit ST Exeter "Tressaurian Insurrection" looks very good, at least it's loads better than their first episode made. Am impatiently awaiting the rest of the episode /blink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blink:' />

Here here!
Yes, Aurora was super awesome.
I wonder if the creator would like to do a video version of The Section 31 Files to accompany the existing audio?

Just watched the first part. Awesome! The banter between the Captain and the Vulcan were handled very well, perfect mix of unintentional snotty and annoying by the Vulcan.

Aurora is an example of what you get when you mix great animation and good writing! I like the throwaway details, like the Andorian and the drunk guy walking away from the bar. A great mix of subtle humour and horror.
