Star Trek: Aurora is an animated film that is set in the year 2270, right after Kirk's five year mission ends. It does not focus on Starfleet, as is the case with most other Star Trek shows, but rather, it focuses on the adventures of the Federation's interstellar merchants.

Story was written, directed and animated (as 3D computer graphics) by Tim Vining, with hair modeling by Kozaburo and a Romulan warship by Sean Kennedy and Atolm.
