Phase II FedCon Vignette - Amusing

I got a good laugh out of this Phase II vignette, which I haven't seen here before, so I thought I'd share it:

Obviously the Enterprise crew has better luck with ACME products than Wile E. Coyote!

Kind of a backhanded slap at the movie people who gave Mr. Cawley a cameo.

It's hard for me to read a vignette that depicts destruction by an Acme product as representing a serious form of criticism. I wonder how Abrams et al. took it.

Re: Phase II FedCon Vignette - Amusing

Nah, a joke would have been to cut footage from TOS the original ship it blowing up the fanfilm ship in turn.

I thought it was inoffensive. And they got the relative sizes of the Enterprises right!
It made me want to see a video like this 2009 Fedcon intro, but with the two Enterprises teaming up.

According to posts I've read here, their "Origins" script had the working title of "Eleven Sucks."

Re: Phase II FedCon Vignette - Amusing

Kudos to Mr. Tobias Richter for the CGI--which includes not only the TOS Enterprise but the ST '09 Enterprise as well.

Our original thought was to have the TOS Enterprise restore the timeline by arriving on scene and destroying the ST '09 Enterprise--with full phasers and photon torpedoes. In the end, we thought that would be pretty mean, so we went in a "silly" direction--with the help of ACME.

No harm, no foul--just silliness.

Here's the "making of" video. It's mostly a cool close-up look at Tobias Richter's excellent new movie Enterprise model while James Cawley just sort of boos and hisses.

Re: Phase II FedCon Vignette - Amusing

Honestly, I don't get the hate for the nuTrek ship design. It looks like the Enterprise to me. Sure, not the one I grew up with, but it's still the same ship. And the interior design is fantastic.

And yet from the clips that were released from that unfinished production, they were still going for a similar take on young Kirk as in the Abrams' film. But then again, it's really hard to judge from one little scene.



Unfortunately, from this little clip, the Pike in "Origins" is not nearly as interesting as the one in the Abrams' films.
