Welcome to Hollywood-On-The-Colorado, circa 2004:

Looking forward to it...

(you know, I'd be kinda curious to see what the five major cast members look like today)...

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Note that the set for Enterprise entirely skimped on the curved soffits.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Yep.

It's also interesting, looking at the picture from "The Cage," to see how different the curvature of those soffits was than most guesses have made them. Exeter's bridge was based pretty directly on Michael McMaster's fan-drawn blueprints, and Mike extrapolated that they were deeply and elegantly concave - as did, I think, Franz Joseph. The original was pretty shallow and flat.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Your dedication, Maurice, Dennis (and Scott C., The Johnson Brothers, et al.) speaks for yourself. And being relatively silent for the past months obviously never meant, that you (edit: not) also anxiously have waited for this moment in fan film history as we all have.
This, on the other hand, as the only ones who could make this magic moment happen - and with an almost certainty will in a few hours.
Man, am I really that impatient? I surely seem to be! The best for all of you from Platjenwerbe, Germany!
