Re: Generations references

Worf: "I have just received new orders from Admiral Berman to report to Deep Space Nine for reassignment."
In in-universe terms, this probably would have happened. Sisko had a valid reason to request Worf's transfer, and Worf was a unique resource. Starfleet could spare thousands of people for keeping the E-D safe from intruders, but only one Klingon to sort out the troubles at the Cardassian front.

Worf would definitely have gone to DS9 in "Way of the Warrior". Whether he would have stayed might have been affected by whether the E-D awaited him...

It bums me out all the more that the D had to bite the bullet in the film. Those sets and the 6-footer looked amazing.

I still say blow up the ship for wow factor, but undo it with the Nexus. Best of both worlds.

(Say, that's a catchy title...)
I thought the Enterprise-D looked beautiful too including the new lighting on the sets, surely they could've just changed the sets for First Contact? Looking at First Contact, I could never really see it being filmed on TV sets.

Re: Generations references

They already changed them for GENS, so why not again?

Re: Generations references

^ Exactly. One of the excuses used was that the Enterprise D sets had to be struck anyway to make way on the soundstage for the ones built for Voyager. But it would have been just as plausible IMO to have kept them in storage and then wheeled them out again (with modifications) every few years, just like they did with the Enterprise E sets.

The introduction of a new 'hero' ship in 1996 was exciting at the time and I had a sort of "love affair" with the 1701-E for a while afterwards as a result of it being new and different to what came before. But as time has gone on, I've now come to the opinion with the benefit of hindsight that it was a pretty hollow change, and that those sets and that exterior don't hold nearly the same emotional attachment for me as the ones used for the 1701-D.

At the beginning of Generations, the crewman played by Tim Russ does the exact same thing. It always stood out to me for some reason.
Do you recall when? As far as I can tell, after they leave Spacedock Russ never leaves his console.

It wasn't as simple as that though, the sets were largely modified to build Voyager - the corridors, crew quarters, engineering were basically redressed versions of the TNG sets.

Probably just as easy to build a whole new set on different soundstages, purposely built for the scenes in the new film, than to redress the Voyager sets, then put them back again at the end of the summer.
