Oh my goodness. This is a frackin' fascinating, passionate, tasteful and stunningly beautiful piece of work.

I guess those of us who are doing or have been doing USS Enterprise deck plans would love to see their results in such three-dimensional CGI animation.

Bob

P.S. The Klingon Battlecruisers look much better than these did in TOS-R

Impressive work with the interiors. The feeling was like walking though interactive exhibits at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry.

Re: A CGI tour of the USS Enterprise.

Gorgeous! The ONLY thing (that I could notice) that he got wrong was the actual structure of the hex-grilles. And that's such a small detail, that I think it can be excused. I'm willing to bet he consciously chose to do it the way he did it for technical reasons. I'm sure the poly count for doing it the real way would be astronomical.

Also, I loved the clips of the show playing on the screens. It made the whole thing easy to sit through. I was uneasy clicking on a 10 minute video, but that went so fast....

I loved it. I can't gush enough!

Re: A CGI tour of the USS Enterprise.

Well done I've got to ask, what was that thing that flew out of the ship at the end?

Re: A CGI tour of the USS Enterprise.

That was, frankly, moving. Would that it preserved the feeling of Kirk's speech at the end and didn't go to outtakes and meta/ironic references. I am ok with seriousness of tone when it is warranted and works, as it does in this almost poetic, short film. But again, to focus on the main thing, it was moving. That show and universe have given me so much joy and inspiration over the years! This really reminded me of it.

Thanks for doing this.

This is AWESOME, Alan!!! My only request: is there a downloadable version? This one is a keeper...

Nice touch having your own cabin... I'm jealous!

Spock launching at the end was the only 'less than perfect' part. Perhaps a piece of video from the show would improve that... like you did with the vid screens throughout the ship... [Sorry, I'm getting old and cannot remember the term for the "time capsule" jettisoned at the end.]

I feel inclined to disagree. The flight deck, its proper illumination and the correct amount of windows were also much better than in TOS-R. If the shuttlebay scenes in TOS-R would have looked like that, I would have probably made lesser use of the angle button of my remote to switch to the original shuttlebay footage.

Thank you sir.

The object comes from an earlier version of the video (maybe version 5 or 6, this current one is version 10), when Enterprise had gone off the air and it was unsure if Star Trek would ever come back in any form. It says "Star Trek Lives" on the side, and is also a reference to the first post TOS fans of the 1970's.

Please allow me to clarify my earlier post:

The scenery was very gratifying. It was the look of Spock specifically, that, in my sole opinion, could have looked a little better. I felt that part could have been better by taking stock footage of Spock launching something and placing it in the splendid set created by our friend, AR. Much as he did on view screens throughout the ship.

This does NOT mean I do not appreciate the masterful work produced. Merely constructive commentary... nothing more.

That was obviously a labor of love. Well done! It encapsulates many magic feelings that decades of knowing Star Trek inspires in me.
