How cool is this. Star Trek New Voyages just beat out Galactica for best online webisode!


Monday, November 26, 2007, TV Guide announced the winners of its 2007 Online Video Awards with Star Trek: New Voyages named best in the "Sci-fi Webisodes" catagory. The inaugural Online Video Awards honor the best professionally produced programming and other entertainment content that aired online, or in other digital media, between January and October of this year.

Chosen by fans, Star Trek: New Voyages won out over nominees such as the SciFi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica," the USA Network's "The 4400," and "Afterworld," a $3-million animated series produced by Santa Monica, Calif.-based Electric Farm Entertainment, for MySpace.com. Unfortunately, in light of the Writer's Guild of America strike, the planned televised awards show had to be cancelled. The cancellation of the ceremony in no way dampened the spirits of cast, crew, and fans when they flooded the website forums with congratulatory posts.

"I am still shocked, amazed, and humbled that we were one of the four shows nominated, but to have actually won - what a great thrill. This award is dedicated to everyone who has worked so hard to make New Voyages a reality and to all the loyal fans who voted, because none of this could have happened without you," commented Executive Producer James Cawley upon learning of the award.

Over 1.75 million votes were cast in 18 separate categories such as best TV Comedy Webisodes, TV Drama Webisodes, Animated Web Video, and best Sci-Fi Webisodes. Votes were the deciding factor in most categories, but TV Guide Editors were able to choose the winners in some categories. Rich Battista, Gemstar-TV Guide's chief executive officer said, "It's exactly the right time for the Online Video Awards. ...there is a wide range of innovative and high quality Web-only programming currently being created and we're excited to be among the first to single it out for recognition."
