What Changes Would You Have For "LTBYLB"?

Not many changes to be made other than the space shots and that's probably the only thing they did.

Get rid of the stock footage used for the ruins on Cheron and substitute an authentically alien cityscape.

Re: What Changes Would You Have For "LTBYLB"?

I don't know, I liked the stock footage. It made it seem visceral and pounded home the obviously contemporary nature of the message.

I'll be interested to see if they try to sneek in a look of the invisible alien spaceship, however.

^ Wasn't it actually said in dialogue that Bele's ship was invisible?

"Invisible" could just be a euphemism for "cloaked", in which case they could work in a very slight distortion field if they're artistic about it.

I'm pretty sure they were called invisible in the dialogue, but admittedly it's been a while. Naturally, people are at liberty to define that any way they wish.

Re: What Changes Would You Have For "LTBYLB"?

I have no problem with the superimposed images of burning buildings while Bele and Lokai blindly stumble through the Enterprise's corridors. As far as I'm concerned, that's one of the best (and very patently '60's) images of that ep. I say: change it only if you can superimpose even better imagery of the same thing, otherwise, leave it be.

I think they can have some fun with the Enterprise at Warp 10, if they show some imagination.

It would really be neat if the orbital shots of Cheron could show massive devastation of coastal cities from space. That could be a powerful new image to show.

It would be neat if they could also touch-up the self-destruct sequence. The strangely musical nature of the computer during that Cold War-ish ritual was always fascinating to watch. If they can improve the destruct graphics on the panels a bit, that would be a nice touch.

The decontamination of Ariannus will also be a challenge to re-FX. Believe it or not, I'm very fond of the old FX.

Of course the stolen shuttle will have to have different markings than the Galileo.

Gorshin/Belai : Can't you see? We've got stars upon ours!

Lokai : Ask him, Captain. Ask them about how slaves were marked by having the stars upon ours removed! We were feathered and tarred, and then we were de-starred!

Belai : A mere racial legend! We have always had, and have always been glad, for the stars upon ours.

Kirk : Doctor Seuss--your opinion?
