So I've heard that SyFy is doing a miniseries based on Larry Niven's "Ringworld" series. All I've been hearing from those who have received this news, are groans of dismay, mostly because the SyFy channel is notorious for doing really bad adaptations of what are regarded as classics of the genre, usually with the addition of monsters that never appeared in the originals.

Okay, so this isn't technically a "fan" film--it's a slickly produced BBC-TV parody film starring Rowan Atkinson, Jonathan Pryce, Hugh Grant, Joanna Lumley, Julia Salwaha, and Richard E. Grant, made for Comic Relief back in 1999.
It's actually sort of non-canon canon. The man who wrote it, Stephen Moffat, eventually went on to become head writer for the Doctor Who series proper.
Behold--"The Curse of the Fatal Death."

Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness is a four issue miniseries that acts as a prequel to the new film Star Trek Into Darkness. The name is reminiscent of the title of the comic book prequel to the 2009 film, Star Trek: Countdown. Countdown to Darkness was written by Mike Johnson, writer of the original Countdown as well as the limited series Nero and the ongoing Star Trek monthly comic book, which is set in the JJ Abrams timeline, and was illustrated by David Messina, the artist on Countdown and Nero. Countdown to Darkness is a very interesting story and, with what little we know of the plot to Star Trek Into Darkness, does seem to set the movie up in the sense that you want to find out what happens next. It isn't "To Be Continued" so much as it definitely hints at another story, the film's story.
