Re: The OFFICIAL new Enterprise - Let the critiques begin!

^ Absolutely. I'm all for fleshing out background, establishing enough framework to give a fictional reality a sense of depth and plausibility, and then sticking with it. That's what I do when I write history, it's what I do when I write historical fiction, and it's natural for me to do it when I write SF. I love the challenge of creating "future history". I'm not saying everyone should do it that way, and I know most don't, but it's what I enjoy.

But then, I guess you'd know that.

No... I'd do something stupid like invite 'em all to a roast pork supper and start armageddon.

Well, if they all turned on you at least they'd be in agreement.

You'd be surprised how often we wind up on the same page.

Now if we can just get MGagen in here, we could get a helluva poker game going.

Re: The OFFICIAL new Enterprise - Let the critiques begin!

"Give me a bridge with the same design he created, but with all the delicate curves and ergonomic sensibilities he had to forego so Desilu's union carpenters could bring the set in on budget. Give me that upper ring of data screens dancing with live information from each department, so the captain can absorb the true state of his ship at a glance from his command chair. Give me holographic, heads-up labels that seem to hover in space over the various colorful buttons on Uhura's console, reconfiguring with each separate function overlay she selects, and fading from view as the camera trucks away from her station."

Which we are getting in Star Trek XI! :thumbsup:

Yay!

Oh Lord... this time, Rottentomato™ DumbPost™ score.... 6.1/10

And an extra penalty of one point for spoiling that wonderful MGagen post.

All right, that's not necessary. If you don't have a more thoughtful response than that, don't post.

Re: The OFFICIAL new Enterprise - Let the critiques begin!

I apologize, though I was at a momentary loss for finding any other way to draw attention to the nonsense I keep encountering over the Tomato's signature. To paraphrase the poet, 'He speaks unskillfully: or, if his knowledge be more, it is much darkened in his malice.' I suppose I just need to get used to it.

...but not without a fight.
