We're working on a scene where he dances, juggles, plays the guitar, and does close-up sleight-of-hand tricks. It's an important plot point.
Now THAT I want to see!

Skull and brain size certainly aren't any indication of intelligence. Racoons have far greater intelligence than say cattle in general despite being far smaller in terms of cranial capacity and brain size. It's not what you've got; it's how you use it.
While brain size doesn't correlate with intelligence, the ratio of brain size to mass does.

That looks really nice. The nose and brow area are obviously different, the neck thicker, but its' an interesting adaptation of the original design. And are those ears (of a sort) on the bony projections on the sides of his head?

I really appreciate the effort put into bringing the character to life after so long. That's something I never thought I'd see. Look forward to seeing more and hearing how Chris Doohan's performance compares to his father's.

By the way, loving the full schedule for Phase II! In terms of Trek enjoyment, this is going to be a very good year!

I would like to echo this. What a wonderful endeavor.

I, too, see that he's different from the animated character, but also think this "adaptation" is great, and especially makes sense if there is an actual person below latex, rather than it being fully CGI. I honestly can't tell for sure. And I am VERY MUCH looking forward to seeing Arex in the ... er ... flesh? ;-)

I think that, as a non-Phase II person who is also enjoying this... I'd like to remind people that these fan films are ALL done based on donations.

Re: Arex coming to Phase II!

I thought it was kind of funny how James posted this on his facebook page and then the next day trekmovie has it up. Haven't watched the videos yet.

It is an amazing effect. My issues are not with Phase II, but with The Animated Series. The size of the skull is too small for an intelligent being in biology as we know it.
I never gotten the feeling that Arex of TAS had too small a brain case.



"The Practical Joker"



My customized M'Ress and Arex. On reflection, my custom probably needed more brain case, but Arex in TAS was fine!

Re: Arex coming to Phase II!

Ah! Just read on James' Facebook page that the new Arex has lost his tripodal features. (I guess the CGI would have cost an arm and a leg.)

Haw haw haw!

It's not Arex without three arms and three legs!
If they're not gonna do him properly, why bother?

Dreams crushed

Still hoping that JJ's peeps will see the light in time for STXII...

Mind you, he only has two arms after "New Frontier: Treason"... unless the Doc performed a miracle.

I have an old late 70s/early 80s fanzine here that featured a rare appearance by Lt Arex - and the editor and artist of the zine briefly discuss how they drew him with a modified look because they didn't care for his tripodal appearance. I hadn't noticed at first, because he'd been drawn leaning against a wooden fence on an alien farm.
