Re: Does TOS Still Look Futuristic to You?

do you guys know if that long-rumored 2001 vfx book by a guy named larson is anywhere near publication? I remember corresponding with him about it several years back (possibly on the hobbytalk.com website), and it is some kind of full-on labor of love, done with a lot of cooperation from Trumbull, and based on something like 80 interviews.

When i was editing a big article on 2001 back in 2000, I thought I was going to get a trip out to see the Ordway archives. Seriously SERIOUSLY bummed me that didn't happen.

I hadn't picked up LOST SCIENCE due to the price, but maybe now I will have to reconsider.

Looks more futuristic now compared to futuristic stuff that is out now which looks all too similar to the present.

yeah, the future is never what it used to be, but it should've been in this case.

It's pricey, but well worth it.

Re: Does TOS Still Look Futuristic to You?

It has a dated look about it now. But it has its charm. Futuristic? Yes, I still buy it as being in space.

I tried to like Enterprise but one of my beefs was it had too much of a TNG era feel to it. I wanted more TOS era buttons and toggles.

And every time I come to the conclusion TOS is so outdated it's cartoony, episodes like Trials and Tribbleations and In a Mirror, Darkly proves just what a classic it was and still is.

I couldn't agree more. Science fiction seems to have lost the ability to imagine the future. Even in the NuTrek films, the scenes on Earth look a lot more like 2030 than 2259.
