This is great stuff. Reminds me a lot of Rex Morgan MD in terms of reading it - I can see exactly this in my daily newspaper. Well done!

And thank you for leaving the m/arcs in the "power pods" where they belong.. I.e. in the nacelles!
Er, maybe I missed something, but where did you get that from?

Matt Jefferies himself. When he was first thinking up the design he thought (quote) "The engines are dangerous, so they ought to be kept out of the way somewhere." So Matt Jefferies' Original Intent was for power to the ship to come from the nacelles ("power pods" in his notations) and not from a single reactor inside any populated part of the ship. The creator talks about this on the "About" page of the web site.

Back on topic: Pretty nice comic.
Thanks Admiral2- I was just going to make something up , but that sums most of it up. TOS also made reference to them a couple of times suggesting that was the case. I posted a thread a while ago citing quotes from the show. Essentially I just copied every single quote into a PDF and did key word searchs (eg- power- pod- engine- warp- et c...)

And hopefully B.J. can open the rest of the page. It's pretty neat. I wished there was more. Oh well.

No red menu bar? That's troublesome. Why would a firewall block a div called "mymenu" and nothing else?
It's also blocking the top banner (which I very much like!), but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Considering that I work for a defense contractor, our firewall can be a bit overzealous at times.

For the RSS impaired or those who just love Facebook I've just set up a page so you can get new panels right in your news feed. I also set up a twitter feed: https://twitter.com/trekcomic . The more likes, natuarally, the more inclined I am to get the lead out .
