Re: "Planet of the Titans" Revisited

Vulcan interior hallways concept drawing.

Star Trek shuttle concept sketches.
McQuarrie labels the corridor as Vulcan, but the curve makes me think Enterprise interior.

Concept sketches for the Vulcan planet surface.

A spooky spirit lives in the rocks. A character gets sucked in and interrogated.

Concept sketches for Vulcan planet and docking platform.

The planet is burned out--they've ruined the air quality to the point they have to live underground.

A concept drawing of a character viewing a hologram.
It would be interesting to know how much of this Vulcan stuff was the artists just blue-skying and now much was informed by the script under development.

The final image, with the hologram, looks like a Vulcan who's being restrained...but who can be sure?

In fact, the burned out nature of the planet in the sketches above makes me wonder if it's not Vulcan at all, but the titular Planet of the Titans. Curiouser, and curiouser...
