I think he likes our "holotable" - it's cozily familiar somehow.

Re: "Polaris"

This looks really cool! And I love the holotable. Are the Burke chairs going to be part of the set as a nod to Trek, or did someone just bring them to the stage as a lark?

I'm sitting here chuckling over the fact that these are your dining room chairs. It not only figures, it's awesome.

Re: "Polaris"

That glass domed station in the middle of the command deck is vaguely reminiscent of the astrogator (or whatever they called it) on the top deck of the Jupiter II in Lost in Space.

Re: "Polaris"

Actually, the whole set is rather reminiscent of Forbidden Planet. Not that that's a bad thing or anything. I also don't think the set is too realistic. There's no one walking around with bandages on and no blood on the set.

Re: "Polaris"

It's deliberately reminiscient of Forbidden Planet, and of coure Lost In Space derived a lot of their design from that film as well. I think, though, that we're eliminating the dome in favor of a disc with some lighting effects work on it - we've got a really sharp guy working on that gag. The dome created a lot of headaches for lighting and causes potential problems with eye-lines as well.

There are bandages and blood aplenty, but most of them are currently on the guy who was holding the camera here.

Re: "Polaris"

I wish I hadn't read this thread. You see I remember reading about this a good while ago and thinking it was one of those things that'd prolly never go anywhere, ultimately. And now it is, and I realized that there's nothing I really watch anymore and that this looks all kinds of awesome.....and I'll have to wait what seems like forever for it to get done.

I love the design sensabilities and the fact that it'll be done like some of the cooler shows I grew up with back in the day. Love my modern stuff, but glad that someone realizes there's room for a different approach.

Other than that, awesome. Cant wait to see the finished set. Good luck guys...really looking forward to seeing this!

Re: "Polaris"

I like the design. It definitely looks like a cross between Forbidden Planet/Lost In Space and Star Trek. And it looks like it will actually be in color, which is very unusual these days.

Re: "Polaris"

Due to an unavoidable schedule conflict, Meghan King Johnson is unavailable to perform the role of Valerie Young in Polaris.

We're disappointed to lose Meghan, but none the less very pleased to announce that the part will be played by Gina Hernandez:



Her recent work has included appearances on “Ugly Betty,” “Law & Order” and feature films “Precious,” “It’s Complicated,” “Wall Street 2″ and “American Gangster.”

Gina currently appears as a nurse on the Showtime hit “Nurse Jackie” and an FBI agent on USA Network’s “White Collar.”

The full casting announcement is here.

In other news, we're on schedule to begin shooting on December 7th, 2009.
