Re: "Polaris"

Very nice compositing of the viewscreens. I just think it might be a bit confusing for the operators that they are so transparent - you see the display on the opposite side of the table as well (even though it is 120 degrees).

That would be my thought as well. Cool concept, though! And I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Re: "Polaris"

Yeah, I know that this particular effect falls sort of halfway between "cool because it looks cool" and "that would work," and maybe leans more toward the former than the latter. I'm okay with that in this context.

Thanks for all the kind words. The work is being done by Michael Struck at NEO f/x.

The show is the subject of a writeup on TrekWeb today.

Oops. I missed that Dennis had already posted it.

Given the personnel involved in this production, I really can't wait to experience the final product. The talent is apparent in the stills and, I'm sure, will be on the screen as well.

Looks great. Is it really a "fan film," though?

^Air is propagated throughout the ship using fans, so... yes.

Polaris gang, this looks super-awesome. I look forward to watching the finished product!
