Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...
Not sure if the above was in response to my previous post or not, so let me be more specific, just in case? I was talking about the Phase II
shuttle that was a finished concept, fully fleshed out and ready to go to the model stage. Specifically, the wing mounted "guns" which are similar to the "skis" on the TAS shuttle.
Here's a linky.... http://www.ottens.co.uk/forgottentrek/phase2_1.php
,Just thought I'd throw that out there, for whatever it's worth.
My apologies. I misunderstood and thought you were talking about MJ's early concept for TOS. Yep, his Phase II idea looks more finished although I find it oddly inconsistent design wise with the general design style of the TOS universe even if revamped for Phase II. I certainly don't think it looks consistent with what we saw in TMP. But it is interesting and looks more finalized.
