Re: On Board the USS Enterprise

It comes out in March, and like I said, I think it's supposed to be more like a guide to the ship not a technical manual.

@JD thanks for pointing that out! Got excited and posted in the wrong thread! LOL.

Seriously, hearing that it has a frackin' CD-ROM makes me think it's a crap project. Forget it.

Re: On Board the USS Enterprise

We've put up some exclusive stills from the Bonus CD-ROM (as I know that's what a lot of people are most interested in!)

Here we go: http://trekcore.com/blog/2013/02/new...ss-enterprise/

So what technology do you want? A downloadable version from "the iCloud"?

A thumbdrive?

A lot of people still use CD-ROMs, though. I've seen a few books recently with a thumbdrive attached and they make a very clumsy package for bookshops and libraries to handle. In my school library, we've received a few thumbdrives to catalogue - and it's really hard to put them into circulation.

^Which is why I had the thought that an SD card would be an easier thing to enclose in a book. They aren't much thicker than CDs.

Re: On Board the USS Enterprise

I'm most interested in the book. I could care less about the CD-Rom. I'm not complaining either. Just being honest.

Re: On Board the USS Enterprise

Hmm, I've been looking at the preview pics over on Trekcore, and I'm just not feeling it ... Tobias' space stuff is usually great, but this indoor CG stuff just doesn't look professional quality to me. I guess I'll wait for what you guys think about the text.

BTW, before Perpetual ran out of money and sold their Star Trek Online license to Cryptic, they had contracted Andrew Probert to design new, additional (vs. the show) Galaxy-class interiors for their version of the game. Mr. Probert later put the concept art he did for them on his website. There was some really neat stuff in there, I would have loved to see CG renders of that material. Sadly it no longer seems to be online now - does anyone have a backup?

Edit: Oh look, here's some of it: http://ottens.co.uk/forgottentrek/th...uld-have-been/

Re: On Board the USS Enterprise

Some media needs to be enclosed for there are those of us without the allotment of 10's of GBs a month.
I am looking at the book. Looks all right but the cg versus clips stands out. Maybe the CD work is different.
