Dennis has relatives in from far-flung parts of the U.S. and Europe this weekend. Dennis just now checked in here.
Dennis is awestruck. Dennis needs to find something new to say about Vektor's
work other than I Absolutely Love This, but Dennis doesn't know what that would be right now.
has forwarded to me very cool sketches of the landing boat...well, landing
in months past, and I really like them - there's a Forbidden Planet
vibe to the whole thing, and it's important in how we've approached staging the upcoming location work and some of our recent green screen work. As far as the way the landers dock with Polaris
itself - Vektor
had design drawings from aridas sofia
and a sentence or two in the script to work from.
As the size of Polaris
became settled, I decided that providing a pressurized hangar space would be impractical and unnecessary. The original idea was that the landing boats would be embedded in the saucer area of the ship. Vektor
did something far more clever and visually arresting than that.
