I just came off of a "Let's Bash James Dixon" one.
Funny how first generation Treknical fans and fandom gets the finger around here.
It must be a generational thing in many cases. I was an avid fan from the early 1970s on, and for a while there, all my technical dreams and visions rested on The Making of Star Trek
, the FJ material, and my own personal sketches.
You could see at the time that FJ's drawings were not a perfect match for the show, but they were vivid and engrossing. Now they have huge sentimental value. You can still look at his Blueprints and walk the ship in your mind.
