Re: Exeter "The Tressaurian Intersection" Grading & Discussion Thread

It was fun to watch. Which is my highest grade when it comes to entertainment. It definitely "feels" more like the Star Trek I grew up with than any other fan film out there.

My hats off to the people who made this possible.

Re: Exeter "The Tressaurian Intersection" Grading & Discussion Thread

Thanks for posting, Jimm. An incredibly ambitious outline.
But the script, Dennis delevoped out of this has the advantage of offering another enemy. A situation that offers chance of addressing prejudice more clearly.

But nevertheless - what you, your brother and all of the people involved have achieved is just remarkable, outstanding!

And the best fan film ever produced, yet!

Thank you for your efforts and Greetings from Platjenwerbe!

And the very best part of having this completed is that the darned "Whatever Happened to Starship Exeter?" thread will eventually drop off the screen never to be seen again.

Re: Exeter "The Tressaurian Intersection" Grading & Discussion Thread

I LOVE the attention to detail! I don't know if anyone else caught this but these screenshots back up the opinion that the bridge is NOT offset.

First we see the bridge from the top (an homage to "The Cage") which shows the external shaft at the rear of the bridge does not line up with the internal bridge doors which indicates the bridge is not offset.



And now my favorite part, in the turbolift we see Cutty and Garrovick talking. If you notice the moving deck indicator, you will see the last vertical movement (from top to bottom) that shows the turbolift has reached the bridge level. Immediately after that, you see the indicator move once from right to left, which indicates that the turbolift slid from the shaft to the right in order to line up with the bridge doors. Excellent work whoever was responsible for that!

Not that I've ever had a dog in the "offset" fight. But how does this back up anything? It's a fan made episode. It has the same weight, officially speaking, as any other fan generated idea.

As I stated, it backs up the OPINION that the bridge is not offset. It may be a fan made episode but it completely captures the look and feel of TOS during the 60's and that's good enough for me.

The turbolift is also not lined up with the exterior...just like The Cage.

Yeah, I did it that way to imitate "The Cage.". It's always looked to me like it was Jefferies intention that the turbolift fit into the cylinder in the back; rotated the way we have it, it would poke out through the hull.

I remember reading somewhere that the original bridge design was supposed to have the turbolift in the rear so that it would line up with the external shaft but was changed for filming reasons. When they filmed the Captain in the chair at an angle, they wanted the turbolift doors in the background in order to see people using the lift. Not sure if there's any truth to that or not it makes sense.

That's always the explanation that's made sense to me, yeah.

It looks to me as if, in WNMHGB, the helm station in some shots is rotated to halfway between the turbo and communications, rather than lined up with communications.

Re: Exeter "The Tressaurian Intersection" Grading & Discussion Thread

I finally watched it yesterday. I enjoyed watching it in one lump. Needless to say, I liked the whole production and feel. Decent acting, sfx, costumes and so forth kept me in the show for it's duration. I am glad they were finally able to finish it and release it after all this time. To me it was worth the wait.
