A group of fans from the Netherlands are hard at work making Star Trek fan films and proving, once again, that Star Trek fandom crosses all borders. In this episode of Continuing Mission, host Dennis Castello interviews Robin Heirt, the executive producer of Star Trek Dark Armada, to find out what it's like to be a Star Trek fan in the Netherlands. Robin also talks about the learning curve they went through making their past episodes, why they decided on the post-Voyager era as “their Trek,” and their plans to turn Star Trek Dark Armada into Star Trek Batavia.
