As Oden Knight said in the video where I found this, these people should be in Hollywood making trailers.
Something this got me thinking about though that bothers me. It seems like the community are the only ones that do anything to bring new players into the game. I see TOR and ESO advertised all over the internet, even on this site, but I never see STO advertised anywhere. Sure they do events like the Delta Recruit but was that advertised anywhere or was it up to us to tell our friends that it was a good time to try the game because of the bonuses? This is why I really want to see people like ValikinFX and Timber Wolf do well because it feels like they do a lot more to bring new players into the game then PW is ever going to do.
Very nicely done!
Very professional looking and much more captivating than the "official" Iconian war trailer IMVHO.

My name is Allen, and I am the guy who created this video, and many others!
I'm and thrilled that you guys enjoyed this trailer. This one took me about a month to do, mind you I took my time on it and was rather busy with work.
I am currently working on another trailer for the community, for the Season 11 announcement that was just made. I saw they made their own trailer, but I'm going to crack my fingers and see what I can for for this one.
There is more videos that I have done, and if you guys and gals want to check them out,:

Stay tuned for my version of the Season 11 video!

Thank you very much! And I hope that my next one for Season 11 won't disappoint!
Just watched a bunch of the videos on youtube- these are amazing! The shots of the ships are so beautiful and I love the background music that goes along with it. Have you entered the screenshot contests, because these shots are FAR better than the ones that won, i'd rather have yours on the loading screen any day!
On another note, I once saw a couple of videos on youtube of someone using demorecord perhaps, to make an episode set in STO, have you considered doing something like that? And have you ever used a voiceover for one of your trailers?
I hope that you keep making these wonderful vids,

I'd say you need to contact Perfect World about having you make their trailers but that didn't turn out so well for the Continuum. Awesome job on the Star Trek VI video.

AAAICT - I have actually entered into the Screenshot contests. I've entered into the current Iconian War contest, which has a lot of good submissions, so it's a crap shoot there lol. The last one I did was the "Selfy with Harry Kim" Contest. I'm not exactly sure how some others were picked over mine, but it's really no big deal. I enjoy doing screenshots and videos
eaglescoutdjb - They are aware of the stuff that I do, funny enough. I'd love to make trailers for them, but at the same token, whether it's to make them for Cryptic folks, or because I feel like it, the audience in both instance, that being the STO community, seems to be enjoying them. That to me is what matters the most, and actually makes me happy.
