Star Fleet Video Files
Do feel free to download these as described below, but you can also find them on my YouTube channel - assuming YouTube hasn't been sued into oblivion by the time you read this! You can find my channel here.
Although these clips are in a streaming format, please right click on the images and "Save Target As", then play them from your hard drive - especially if you're going to watch them more than once (it's a bandwidth thing). Enjoy!

The videos below are from other sites rather than being "home grown"...
- Brian May Star Fleet Project Video Clip AVI (1.29MB)
- Star Fleet Project video different, and better, than the one I had - this one's RealVideo and longer, and it includes good bits of footage from the show in between Brian's disembodied head! Originally from Queenzone.
- Small French Intro Sequence (MPEG, 1.4 MB) at Meganimation under Bomber X.
- Espen Solheim's Star Fleet page was
a new page for 2000, put up with the express aim of
providing RealVideo streams
of full episodes. So far so good, too. Not reproduced here for the time being.
- Big Dai-X and F Zero One contain many more video and sound files from the various versions of the series - definitely well worth a visit!
August 31st 2002 With some new hardware at my disposal, I've reviewed the Star Fleet video clips that were available here and have decided that they need refreshing. So you'll now find that the majority of the files here are WMV format to save on space. As it's a streaming format some quality does get lost, but the resolution is relatively high and the overall result should be better than the older AVIs.
Another byproduct of this new hardware is the new multimedia section in Other 80s Stuff. It contains more than a dozen video intros for old school cartoons which you might enjoy, so go and check it out!
August 20th 2002 Hosting an entire episode finally red-lined the site's bandwidth, so it's no longer available - sorry!
Until SFXB was etablished on its current server I was only able to offer a few of the video files I had on my hard drive. The position is now very different. If you've visited the gallery you'll have noticed that I sometimes linked to images, rather than displaying them here. Reason being, that for some reason I couldn't get permission to show them directly. This also applies to some of the videos above.
However, I am going to host them here because the bandwidth required to support a video download isn't insignificant. So although I could link to them, I don't want to pass on that traffic to another site now that I have enough resources (hopefully!) to cope with it myself. The originating sites are credited.
Note that you'll need RealPlayer for a couple of the files. The other videos are in formats which the standard Windows Multimedia Player will be able to cope with; one other video uses Quicktime.
