Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

Okay, add me to the "just a little too much ambient lighting on the ship" crew, but I definitely don't think it needs to be as dark as ENT, either. I do think it could use stronger shadows, which might be why it seems to bright - the color of the ship is too even, with not enough contrast.

That being said, however, I think the clip looks great, and I have to say I really like the opening credits! This is the first time when I haven't thought it looked like Enterprise was 'sliding' across the screen, but actually shooting from the distance and past the camera; good choice to break from the tendency to 'recreate' the credits and to actually improve upon them; I especially like the last shot with De Kelley's credit. Thanks, Prof!

BTW, I also have to add that, looking back at your previous work, I prefer the Scene 13a, where Kirk crosses the main viewscreen, in which you had the planetary rubble still glowing from its destruction; it made it seem more immediate and terrifying, that the rock was still superheated from the weapon. But the final version looks great, too (just without the scan lines - I like to think their viewscreen technology has improved over a Sony Trinitron ).
Star Trek: Reanimated - it's more than just a cartoon!
