Australian filmmaker Aaron Vanderkley set a new benchmark in fan film production with the release of his two short films Needs of the Many and The Derelict. These films which are set during the same time period as Star Trek: Enterprise and have captured the imagination and attention of his peers. Needs of the Many received two honors—Best Lead Actor or Actress and Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form—at the Independent Star Trek Fan Film Awards at Treklanta, an annual science fiction convention held in Atlanta, Georgia.

In this episode of Continuing Mission, host Tony Robinson is joined by Aaron to talk about how it all came together, how fans have reacted to his films, and his career plans.
