Re: M'ress appreciation thread

I agree. The more M'ress there is, the better.

I mean, I'm not into Furry stuff, but one should always be willing to make exceptions.

Re: M'ress appreciation thread

A very unusual find...

M'Ress as drawn and painted by none other than Wendy Pini, artist and co-creator of "ElfQuest"! The description states this was from 1975 when EQ was still a few years in Wendy's future.

I'm not sure if linking an eBay page is permitted, so for anyone curious, just go to the famed auction site and type in "M'Ress" as the search parameter.

(Keep in mind the entry will probably be accessable until early March 2013. After that, the auction will close and the entry eventually disappear.)

No, not a piece I'm trying to auction. I just stumbled across it during a Google search. Neither am I even considering buying it, even at one seventh the asking price. I saved the hi-res photo to my local drive, so I'm happy with that.

Sincerely,

Bill

^ Did they try to cross out the original opening bid of $17? LOL

Well, someone did. But we can't be certain the person who's trying to sell it did so in preparation for this eBay auction. It might have happened in 1975 when it was originally sold.

But it is rather amusing in light of the current asking price.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: M'ress appreciation thread

Last Friday's installment of "Ensign Two: the Wrath of Sue" features a cameo of M'Ress!

http://www.interrobangstudios.com/po...?strip_id=1535

True, it's a single panel and she has no lines, but artist Kevin Bolk (aka K-Bo) includes all the earmarks of the Filmation character design, making instantly recognizable.

Why is she in security instead of communications? Eh, JJ Abrams timeline, different career choice. Besides, wouldn't you want a fleet footed being with naturally evolved razor sharp weapons on your security team?

And yes, I did post the groupie-like response about her inclusion. Might as well play up the goofy reputation I've developed here.

Sincerely,

Bill

P.S. If the mods feel this thread is too old to rate this newest post, you won't hurt my feelings for locking it. As for the original poster, I don't think he's been around for over a year.

Just glad we finally see a proper Caitian in the JJverse, not whatever those Siamese felinoid things were.

Well, to be fair, I wouldn't kick either out of bed for clawing the sheets, but they certainly were not Caitians. And since they were not identified as such via dialog or readable labels, I can just ignore the intent "behind the scenes".

Sincerely,

Bill

We already know there are more felinoid species out there, even in TOS's time, so yeah I just assume it's another race than resembles humans slightly more than the others.

Saying that though, they were cute. The glowing eyes could be a little creepy up close but still.
