Re: Scaling the Excelsior Filming Model

  1. I know Bill George personally. I can ask him about the intended size next time I see him.
  2. As I recall, Bill was tasked to build study models for the Excelsior from concepts by others, and when he finished early he was allowed to make his own concept model for consideration. That's the one Nimoy picked.
  3. That's a great theory about the doors, but it's undermined by the fact that we see the Excelsior pointed at the door the Enterprise enters and exits through. http://movies.trekcore.com/gallery/a...tsfshd0608.jpg
