Ok, Worf added as well as the Knight Rider L.E.D. light at the front. I think we are getting close now. I think this is what we are going to get in the new movie. The deflector dish is in front of Worf's face, but I didn't want to run without the deflector. I'm not sure whether it would be safe.

Can Worf's face deflect asteriods and space debris?


I'm thinking of submitting it to the Trek Art Forum


Can we move the deflector dish down a bit? Like Worf is holding it with his teeth?

And can we have an actual Pez candy (or approximation) being shot out of Shatner's mouth (but not obscuring his face?).

This is really coming together.

Thank God we still have a year until the movie comes out. I only hope it's enough time to get this right.

^ I think it would be nice if we hung some Christmas lights around the edges of the saucer section. You know - give it that festive touch.

Let's run that through Canon-Check (TM):

Yep. We're good. Add them.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Moving the deflector into Worf's teeth makes him look rather shocked, which isn't very becoming of a warrior. Other ammendments as suggested. Expect an update with legs and vectoring nacelles.

[EDIT] PICTURE REMOVED AS GEP MALAKAI'S WAS BETTER


I have printed out my design and sent it off to J.J. Abrams. C/O Paramount Pictures, USA.

I have written a very nice letter which I have signed in my own blood. Its slightly threatening in tone, but I think I get my point across.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

What if you moved the deflector dish over so it looked like an eye-patch. That's tough, right? Like Chang?

I'm filling out a writ of habeus corpus for you right now, so we'll be ready if anything goes wrong. As long as you don't end up in Guantanamo Bay, you're good.

I'm just going to assume that jon1701 is your real name...

Its Jon "Danger" 1701.

Yes, danger is my middle name. My mother got a very strange look when she registered my birth.

Oh bloody hell, you beat me to it.

Now with flames! Because flames are kewl.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

I think we need to color-coordinate those Christmas lights with the nacelles and pez pellets. Lets see some of those colored light strings...and give us a little loop to them. It would rock if they glittered...but I don't know how talented you are with animated .gifs

Perhaps we need to move back the submission date to the Trek Art Forum? It's tough to find good Christmas lights in May.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Gep, that shits all over mine.

Much better.

Just need the legs now. And can someone animate the vectoring nacelles? As a gif perhaps?

Really starting to come together now. We'll show those bastards at paramount.

There you go! That's what I'm talking about!!!

The flames look kewl. Let's let Cogley run 'em through the Canon-Check ("Captain! The engines are on fire!" ought to do it....but he's the expert on TOS canon. I'm the DS9 Babe....)...but we are making progress here, I think!

Why, thank you. *wishes we had a blushing emoticon*

I saved the .psd file of it, which I could host if anybody wants; that way, we could all work off a master file without further .jpg degridation. You know. Like the pros.

Edit: What the hell. Here it is.

I've never done an animated gif, but I'm game if somebody could point me in the direction of some tutorials.. Let's get those revisionist Paramount bastards!

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Flames are definately canon. Deflector dishes protruding through the face of a lead cast member are borderline I would think.

I'm not sure about the Pez dispenser. I think I saw McCoy use one in "A Private Little War", but my TOS Season 2 knowledge is a little shaky.

Where the hell is Belar (NCC-1701)when we need him? That guy is the friggin' MASTER of the animated .gif

Someone needs to round him up and get him in here. We MUST have twinkling lights and vectoring nacelles!

Well, it turns out there was a PEZ dispenser gun. It's entirely possible the landing parties were outfitted with PEZ dispensing phasers and tricorders, too.

Just something to keep in mind.
