James Cawley, the man who moonlights as Capt. Kirk in his own fan venture Star Trek: New Voyages / Phase 2, is in a bit of a predicament after one of his online episodes caught the attention of the Science Fiction Writers of America. The script for “World Enough and Time” has been nominated for the 2007 Nebula Award; a move that, despite its good intentions, could have Cawley sitting in hot water with Gene Roddenberry’s estate, CBS Corp and Paramount Pictures.

James Cawley, the star and producer of online series Star Trek: New Voyages, has been credited with bringing fan films out of obscurity by securing the involvement of such actors as George Takei (Sulu) and Walter Koenig (Chekov) and original series writers D.C. Fontana and David Gerrold, as well as for the exceptional sets that he has shared with other fan projects. In addition to playing Kirk on New Voyages, Cawley has made guest appearances in several other productions, including a turn as Captain Mackenzie Calhoun in a Star Trek: Hidden Frontier episode.

BY any reasonable definition David Gerrold is a major figure in science fiction. He has published some 50 books and won many of his genre’s highest awards, including the Hugo and the Nebula. John Cusack and Amanda Peet starred in “Martian Child,” which was inspired by his novella “The Martian Child” and opened last month.
But Mr. Gerrold seems destined to be forever remembered as the guy who gave the world the alien race of cute, lovable, rapidly breeding fluff balls known as tribbles.
You know, tribbles — the star characters of “The Trouble With Tribbles,” probably the most famous episode of the original “Star Trek.” Initially broadcast 40 years ago (on Dec. 29, 1967), the segment was Mr. Gerrold’s first professional sale. Most Trekkies love it.

British actor and Star Trek fan John Carrigan is making a name for himself through his involvement in internet episodes of the cult sci-
"Everyone's put such a lot into this," said Mr Carrigan. When you see the sets and the level of acting and the special effects, no way does it fall anywhere below anything you can see on screen today. It had 30 million downloads on the internet without any advertising. Paramount's Enterprise series had three million viewers, so it really speaks for itself how popular what we did was."
