You should have him on again, he was excellent. Reminded me a lot of Glenn Morshower.

And thanks for the kind words. Still proud to be a member of the Phase II family.

Re: Phase II "Going Boldly" (new vignette)

Maybe I need to be brought up to speed here on what Phase II means... why the TMP nacelle design on the TOS ship? Didn't the new design make its debut in TMP?

Re: Phase II "Going Boldly" (new vignette)

Perfection I say. In fact I did on Youtube as well.

But this just proves again that Phase II is, to me, the flagship of fan films. As much as I loved James as Kirk this new guy is great and brings his own flare to the role. And to finally see the Phase II Enterprise brought to life in a logical and interesting way makes this old Trek happy. I've heard about the ship ever since I was little and like it. Also, the way she was filmed with the Wrath Of Khan music is a great homage. The shot in both the Motion Picture and The Wrath Of khan, where we see the ship move in above us, so majestic and breath taking, is my favorite Star Trek shot off all time. It was good to see this Enterprise in the same manner and makes you love the old design and the refit all at the same time.

I give this an A+

The old, planned but aborted Star Trek Phase II revival series from the late 70s had an updated Enterprise. Ultimately, the series was scrapped--but The Motion Picture was made instead. The Motion picture also had a new Enterprise, too, of course--but it was a bit different from the Enterprise that was planned for the Phase II series. So the Phase II Enterprise is not the TMP Enterprise (although they are similar).

We are postulating that there was a refit before The Motion Picture refit. They are trying out the new engines and the new photon torpedo launcher and some new docking ports, but this isn't "the refit" that is being completed at the time of TMP. You can see that most of the ship still retains its TOS look. This is an earlier "halfway between TOS and TMP" refit.

Kinda like the Enterprise seen in the initial TMP ads?



Also, great video. I agree the effects are really well done, especially Arex.

I'm not sure about the pylons simply "plugging into" the secondary hull like that, but a minor nitpick.

That's the ship!

I love what James and company have done in advancing the story and timeline. And I have a lot of respect for James for bringing Brian Gross on as Kirk. I love that he isn't trying to channel Shatner. Looking forward to Bread and Savagery...and more...

Wow, very impressive! Love the P2 Enterprise, makes a lot more sense than the "original" version. Acting and production values all very good, as we've come to expect from recent P2 efforts, bravo!

Re: Phase II "Going Boldly" (new vignette)

Great job all around here!!!
As for the issue about simply plugging the pylons into the secondary hull.....
I have no problem with that. That's how you attach the nacelles on the kit models. Prototype imitating art imitating prototype, you might say. It's been a while since I had one of those, but I remember that one nacelle on my model would sag a bit. Couldn't fix it then, but it'd be a snap now.
I'm looking forward to seeing more from you folks.

So what were the events that lead up to this that caused deaths and damage to the ship? And it did it occur in one of the not yet released episodes..
