I've noticed with HF Productions and other fan film groups that they have often used the ST Voyager opening sequence as a template for their own opening sequences. And with first-person shooters or WWII video games, I think this template has been overused. The Odyssey and Helena series have changed slightly by showing scenes form the season in the opening instead of having the same footage over and over.

Does anyone else feel that fan film producers should turn to something different?

Personally I think it would be great if Odyssey used something like this:
Alternative Odyssey Sequence

And that actually sorta goes back to the TNG opening a bit and, by extension a slight bit, to TOS.

All the series' titles are great as they are imo. Although I personally like it when the characters are included, if everyone did that I'm pretty sure someone would wonder if they all seem a bit "samey" and should they change.

The style is imitated as it works well, shows off the ship and the "majesty" of space exploration.

In a broad sense, I think Odyssey should be the show that imitates it because like Voyager the Odyssey is in an undiscovered region of space never even approached by the Federation (let alone other races from our galaxy). I don't think it fit Federation One unless it was more aimed at its journeys in diplomacy to other worlds. But in a way, both Helena Chronicles and Odyssey have gone into a different branch than space exploration.

Both series have ships being pursued by determined enemies, both ships feature young crews ill-prepared for the situations they're in. That is why I'd prefer the example alternate opening in my initial post because rather than focusing on the ship and its voyage of exploration it focused on the characters themselves because as much as their journey is a test for their ship it is also a test on the people who man it.

Well, some good points but if they'd done that from the start it would give the game away icon_wink.gif
