Indiana Star Trek fan is back with a short video.
We love praising Star Trek fans and their creativity on this site. It’s one of the best things about being a part of the fandom; seeing all the neat stuff that they can create. Dating back to the rise in popularity in the 70s, Star Trek fans have been one of the leaders in fan-made and fan-designed accessories and collectibles.
One fan turned his entire basement into a Star Trek and Doctor Who-themed wonderland. We talked about Todd Spann early last year after he was covered by his local news channel for his in-house creation.
He did a full tour of the basement on his YouTube channel, “The Todd” (named after the infamous Scrubs character, no doubt) and it was impressive as heck. Now Spann is back with a brand new video that fully embraces much of his basement.
Todd Spann didn’t just stop making a Star Trek short film.
Spann’s Star Trek short film embraced almost every aspect of the basement, save for the Doctor Who section. There was even a minor cameo for eagle-eyed science fiction fans, as it’s the activation pad for the Stargate portal. A recent addition to the long-time Trek fan’s house.
So if you’re following along, Spann has a near-accurate recreation of a Starfleet bridge in his basement, as well as the TARDIS from Doctor Who and now the stargate portal from the film and television series Stargate.
Spann is living every science-fiction dream in his house. Clearly showing that with some time, some dedication, and a real passion, you can make things like this in your own home. Fans like Spann really do make fans like us proud with his dedication and devotion.
I can’t wait to see what he does next.
