-The British-made ​fan film, //Star TrekTemporal Anomaly//, was due to be released March 31, 2018, but concerns from [[CBS]] led producer Samuel ​Cockings ​to delay its release, as he explained in a post on the movie'​s Facebook page:+After months of reworking following a brush with CBS over violating its fan film guidelinesBritish fan film //Temporal Anomaly// finally debuts, attracting notice for its 51-minute running time thanks to dispensation by Star Trek’s owner. 
 + 
 +"//Temporal Anomaly// ​has a custom arrangement with CBS which allows for its release with its longer run time," explained producer Samuel Cockings. "This project ​was started in 2013 and created long before the fan film guidelines; to allow its release we got a separate arrangement with CBS."​(([[yout>​DdmU2IprGVg|Temporal Anomaly - A Star Trek Fan Production (Part 1) (2019),]] Power543 Fan Films channel, YouTube, 1/​31/​19.)) 
 + 
 +Originally scheduled  ​to be released March 31, 2018, Cockings ​ran into trouble when he posted his trailer:
  
 > While the intent was to release //Temporal Anomaly// today we were contacted by CBS and are now delaying release of the film until those discussions are concluded and resolved. These have been polite communications and we thank CBS for their approach in dealing with these concerns.(([[face>​StarTrekTemporalAnomaly/​posts/​1008315279320782|Star Trek: Temporal Anomaly Facebook page]], Samuel Cockings, 3/31/18.)) > While the intent was to release //Temporal Anomaly// today we were contacted by CBS and are now delaying release of the film until those discussions are concluded and resolved.

 +===== Getting Attention ===== 
 + 
 +After its release, //Temporal Anomaly// got the attention of the scifi news site, io9, which described it like this: 
 + 
 +> All told, that’s a lot of Trek, such a substantial amount, in fact, that it required a special dispensation from CBS to let it get around certain guidelines the company has set up for fan films. And with designs and character types drawn from all eras of the series, it’s dripping in fan service. Check it out.(([[https://​io9.gizmodo.com/​temporal-anomaly-is-a-star-trek-fan-film-half-a-decade-1832306881?​fbclid=IwAR0dsWQKMvjg_HVDcl79JJM2fu9H7F41BuAsyP-Jjl1PxzcDcMo3psLvUNw|"​Temporal Anomaly is a Star Trek Fan Film Half a Decade in the Making,"​]] io9/​Gizmodo,​ 2/3/19.))
