Re: What happened to the Valiant....

Nothing much to say about the episode, I just want to praise Warped9's model design. I hope we get to see the completed version!

Thanks. You can follow the progress of the model here: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=224998

It is nearing completion. All the major elements are done and now it's a matter of detailing and painting though the colours aren't finalized yet.

Isn't this more a Fan Art topic?

My display of the model was meant as a jumping off point for discussion of what might have happened to the Valiant.

Whatever version you are referring to, the answer is always the same:

"She was destroyed!"

And here's your answer from a "fan art" perspective:

Yeah, it was the only explosion pic I could get my hands on in 30 sec!

I have to wonder if the emitters are shaped like giant tuning forks....
There was an episode of "The Wild Wild West" that did that.

Season 4, Episode 11 "The Night of the Avaricious Actuary"


When vibrations from a giant tuning fork destroy the palatial homes of extremely wealthy businessmen, Jim and Artie are called in to investigate.

If memory serves, that was the episode that Ross Martin broke his leg in a botched stunt. Later that season, he suffered a near-fatal heart attack and had to be replaced by other actors (playing other characters) for about a dozen episodes. After the end of that 4th season, the spotlight on TV violence would lead to TWWW's demise.

Perhaps the tuning fork started it all....

Lesson learned: Tuning forks are BAD!
"Tuning the fork" doesn't have quite the same impact as "jumping the shark".
