*I* am making no promises. I'm just doing my part of this as speedily as I can in hopes of getting it out sooner than later.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Isn't it funny how unimpressive the main viewscreen looks now that we live in the era of ginormous flat-screen displays? I remember being very impressed by the displays on the bridge when I was younger, but the modern home theater with plasma, LCD, or even organic LED technologies makes me feel like we're nearly at the point where we can check the "been there, done that" box for that aspect of Star Trek.

I wonder what other cool presentation technologies we'll have by the time the final act is released?

That for me is also a period reality check that I find myself running into more and more often.

I thank you sir for your hard work! Even the few frames you have released have put a smile on my face. Please let us fans know if there is anything we can do to help. If we have to help pull this last Act out of drydock we want to get it out. Thank you again DS9Sega!!!

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I enjoyed it when the effects people on TNG realized that the main viewer ought to be represented as a three-dimensional "space" beyond the front wall of the bridge - shooting from the side the image would show the profile of the person on it rather than flatten out. They weren't consistent about this - but then, sometimes I have trouble setting the aspect mode on my cheap DVD player.

Dementia's a terrible thing.

Hey, it usually took two of us to reset a monitor on Polaris.

That would be because the person resetting the video from behind the set couldn't see what was happening. Oh, yeah, and dementia.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Well, dementia may have been involved in coming up with a wiring scheme that required putting the monitors on one side of a piece of plywood and the control units on the other.

Nah, that's how it's done in Hollywood! But you're expected to have a union technician to push "Play" and "Stop".

Well given that you were in fairly demented company, I think you're excused.

Were they demented before or after the shoot?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

There was kind of a synergistic dementia on set.

That's a fairly apt description of the environment.
