Director's Comments

The worlds of Star Wars and Star Trek collide. The crew of the Enterprise D and the Rebel Alliance must join forces to stop their greatest foes' plan to destroy the Rebellion - and the Enterprise - once and for all.

Running at just over half an hour, this is one of my early films, completed in 2005 but produced on-and-off for over three years.

Staff Review

Jonathan Vaughan:
Though it's far from perfect, Attack of the Drones certainly doesn't fail in ambition. The story and scope of the film are very impressive, especially considering the long running time. It succeeds with mixed results. In the realm of visual effects, Drones is most noteworthy. I was quite impressed by many of the space scenes and the transporter effect. Despite this, the film is at times very tedious, due to a number of scenes and much of the dialog being borrowed from the Star Wars and Star Trek films. The voice acting is also mediocre, and the characters sound a great deal different at the end of the film than the beginning, but this isn't surprising given that it was made over three years. Other technical aspects are of varying quality. Overall this is still quite interesting, especially if you're a fan of Star Trek or enjoy Sméagol's other Star Wars films.
