Re: Embrace or Reject?: "Space as treated like an ocean.
TWOK depicted both of these notions of a sea and 3D did it not?
The approach towards each other of the Enterprise and Reliant, just like two sailing frigates, passing to fire upon one another.
The battle in the Mutara Nebula was conducted entirely across 3 dimensions. Spock even alluded to 2 dimensional thinking before the Enterprise is manouvered through the 3 dimensions to ultimately defeat Reliant.
Thank you! Yes, it did. And towards the end of the movie it actually does use some 3D effects to make you feel as if space is all around you.
And, space is an ocean. The analogy is entirely correct.
