Star Trek has a long history of encouraging young fans to take an interest in the sciences; but here's a fan project that takes that to the next level. Written by teachers, these fan films not only take viewers on Star Trek adventures, they also teach actual classroom lessons in science, math, art, and social studies.

In this episode of Continuing Mission, host Dennis Castello is joined by Richard Wells, Christina Morris, and Keely Sanchez of Starship Grissom to learn how they are bringing Star Trek into education through unique productions that make use of the TOS sets at Starbase Studios.
