Re: Star Trek II: The God Thing

MOONRAKER is definitely the beneficiary of Adam's months on TITANS. But there's a lot of serendipity at work on MR, given that for the first time the Bond people abandoned England to shoot in France, and were able to use Pompidou Centre for some bits, which also fits with the hamster tube approach seen aboard the station and on the ground in Drax's Venice lab.

The Mondrian-style launch complex interior is utterly wonderful, and I could easily see something like that in TITANS if there had been any slight justification to go that route. The 'space brain' TITANS sketches are hard for me to figure out, as it looks like a base made out of rock candy.
