Come on, I could write the response from STC about this.

Let's just laugh about it and let it go.

The thing about the Exeter short was not it was not really shot with the intent to show it - or even, really, to assemble it.

The director and crew had a day's worth of set-up and testing of lighting, sound and camera stuff to do before production on the episode began, and Scott thought it would be more interesting for everyone if they actually had a skit, something with some structure to work with rather than random pages or the actors sitting around the set making stuff up. So I wrote this.

You can see that the set is far from complete; it wasn't a concern at the time because this was just a test exercise.

Much later, after the show had wrapped, I was asked to do a couple of establishing shots of the ship because they'd decided to put the short together. They're just the standard TOS/Exeter flybys with a silly-looking pink planet dropped in.

Re: Second Star Trek Continues vignette online

It's good to know all that, I just meant by "comment" something more along the lines of acknowledgement. The two items are more than a little similar, but you're right - there's not really any way to copyright something like this. I just thought it was interesting that they chose to do something so like what you guys had done.

And still, with all of that...the Exeter piece is awesome.

Re: Second Star Trek Continues vignette online

Personally, I like the idea of shooting some vignettes before getting into the heavy lifting of making a full show. If nothing else, maybe it will help Grant Imahara learn how to underplay for the cameras! Kidding, but not really...I called the two vignettes shakedown cruises and I think that's valid. Everyone gets a chance to do a "live fire" type of exercise, even though the stakes aren't very high. I'm sure everyone involved in both the sequences is doing some serious film study.

Also I think the Exeter and STC vignettes illustrate the difference in tone between the two projects. Kirk has always been the dashing, charismatic, hero type, while Garrovick is grimly competent with moments of brilliance. The atmosphere on the respective bridges reflects that and I certainly don't have any problem with it. If every show is going to have the same kind of atmosphere and crew interaction, why bother? It will be interesting to see how Phase II and STC differ in that regard, but I don't plan to take a preconceived notion into the viewing experience about which is right and which is wrong.

Re: Second Star Trek Continues vignette online

I love the flexibility filming vignettes gives us. We can do a clever exercise like "Delivery," or a comic look at two characters in "The Engineer's New Clothes." We did a test scene on the bridge set in "The Old Guys," and a test of the turbolift set and second camera in "Care for a Lift?" Or we can tell a tale of first contact in "Miscommunication."

To me, the vignettes are much more enjoyable, and easier in terms of getting the cast and crew together. Setting aside all last summer for the 90-min "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky" was frankly exhausting in many ways, and is tying up resources (e.g. the vfx guys, the editor, etc.) as we work to get it ready.
