Never seen TOS scenes...

I really would have preferred if McCoy had been in "Where No Man Has Gone Before."

Re: Never seen TOS scenes...

Yeah! We're back to pics. Bones listening to his "first" of many ramblings by Spock.

You chose a good expression...seems as if he's ready to jump in as soon as Spock takes a breath...if not before.

Re: Never seen TOS scenes...

what do you do to get your screen captures so sharp? Are TOS DVD's that good, or is it you?

Re: Never seen TOS scenes...

Firstly, to my eternal regret I'm not yet set up to make my own screen captures (thats coming eventually) and so for now I have to rely on what I can donload from the net.

However, there are two basic things working in TOS' favour I believe. Firstly the original episodes were filmed on celluloid as opposed to videotape as is done today. This makes for a greater likelihood of having crisper original images. Secondly some years ago Paramount invested in getting the original episodes digitally remastered and cleaned up as well as having some colour correction and enhancement I believe. If screencaps are taken off the remastered episodes then that would serve to llow for pretty crisp pictures I would think.

Unless someone out there more knowledgeable than I in these things can set me straight and explain that I'm full of crap.

Ulimately what I don't like about my last pic is that I've had to graft McCoy's head onto Piper's body and even though I tried to correct Piper's body shape to some extent it's still not satisfactory. Paul Fixx (Piper) was older and had a rather different body form than DeForest Kelly who was leaner and had better posture.

History 101: Captain Picard uses the holodeck to visit the Kirk era...


And then decides to indulge in a little fantasy...


I'm bending my own self-imposed rule here because I find some of TNG tolerable and I was curious to see what it could look like.

actually I have to disagree here for the first time, I like the natural colours of the early uniforms, the later ones look classic yes, but the Cage ones have their own definition of classic and the tan looks perfect.

oh and thank you, now they have to dubb the line again, where Dr. Piper says he came as representative for McCoy (yes, the German TV solved the problem that Piper was just a guest character)

Re: Never seen TOS scenes...

^^ Well the original command shirts were always meant to be green, but some weird photo freakout changed the colour to tan/gold and so I'd just thought I'd let folks here see what the production crew and cast always saw.

You know I saw a thread once that talked about why the uniform colors had changed from TOS to TNG and it was brought up that Patrick Stewart didn't look good in gold... Now I believe it!

Very cool images though.

You are breaking several people's rules...

1. No holodecks...what the hell...did it anyway
2. No crossovers...what the hell...did it anyway
3. No Picard in gold...what the hell...did it anyway

I'm sure Picard finds the TOS bridge more to his liking without some ditzy woman "feeling" in his ear all the time.

Hmmm....Women feeling in my ear...I'm sensing a Ferengi moment.
How can that be...I'm a TOS man!!!

Re: TOS movie what if...

Posted by Warped9:
I even toyed with the idea of just such a short story where April brings in folks like a young hotshot engineer named Lawrence Marvick and a rastafarian like computer systems geek with wild untested ideas called Richard Daystrom. April would have fought committees and other departments all trying to horn in on the program and intent on making the new class of ship something almost totally divorced from what it supposed to and should be. He would have fought with people who would like the new ships to be "dreadnoughts" and superweapons.

Just some idle musings on my part.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have our prequel movie.

The frigthening thing is Picard might fail commanding a TOS era bridge exercise. If you're about to be blown out of the sky then it is not an opportune time to call for a conference!

Technically TAS introduced the holodeck in "The Practical Joker." Anyways maybe as a holodeck exercise I should have had Picard face the Gorn.

Re: TOS movie what if...

Posted by Captain Robert April:
I wrote up a story for Pocket Books' Strange New Worlds contest involving April's first trip out on the Enterprise (I'll not go into the details at this time, since it may make it in one of these years). In it I included a rather striking bit of history to explain why April was assigned command of the Enterprise.

The two folks I'd forgotten to include in the mix were Marvick and Daystrom. I'll have to rectify that in the next rewrite.
Funny, i have done exactly the same thing.

I have got an outline of a trilogy of fan fics to start of an April legacy.

The start is a whole backstory to how April got the Enterprise, the fic ends as April gets the enterprise and gives the order to leave spacedock.

The second pics up as the Enterprise runs a shakedown, encountering problems en-route such as; computer glitches, turbolifts going to wrong decks, power being lost on the bridge for a few seconds, introduction of the 'The Cage' type uniforms that replace my own uniform design for the series etc etc. - Basically putting a little humour and 'Not everythings perfect' type thing that TFF tried and that 'Enterprise' seems to be lacking, i havnt seen Ent since episode 5 so...

All i have done is put Humans in a real life situation, working out the bugs in the system type of thing, afterall, its a new ship, things are bound to go wrong, nothings perfect even in 23rd century.

The third installment is the official mission...

Those are the three big fics, the trilogy, they explain everything, get everything swinging, with a kick. The next lot of fics are stories, of course, about the universe and everything trek such as politics, war-fare, social sciences, human nature and the like.


It also has to do with art as i am using image sampling for various scenes, im wont reveal the cast as yet, but pho-manips of the past that i have have cropped up occasionally explaining some stuff.

I wont reveal Aprils character profile just yet though...
