Great job PixelMagic! It would be nice to see that shot (or something like it) in the movie.

it makes logical sense to tow it into space like that to prevent possible mishaps... (think tugboats)
Not many shallow waters/fellow ships/docks to bump into. This sort of thing could be done to test the engines or something though, who knows.

Anyway, it's a cool image, and that's what counts.

I just congratulated you there, but I'll do it again here: Congrats, Daniel! I think you can be proud of yourself.

Nice! Looks cool.


(I could point out that a ship which can slingshot around the sun at warp 10 could probably handle getting to orbit without needing any help, but who wants to open that can o' worms?)
Nope...the original ENT was never designed to be aerodynamic. Can't fly or maneuver within an atmosphere. The saucer was always said to be separable, which is why they did it in the pilot of TNG, but even THAT only had limited maneuverability within an atmosphere (see the big-ass wreck in Generations).

Re: My Star Trek Fake Footage Contest Entry

Just congratulated you on TrekMovie, Daniel, but I wanted to come over here so I could personally berate you for admitting that this was a fake. Could've finally put the whole thing to bed by confusing it in rumor and lies so much that debate over "Built On Earth" would've been impossible. GG, D.B. GG.

Seriously, the quality of this is amazing.

Do you really think he could have got that by Vreenak?

Congrats Daniel .

In my opinion that video clip was a winner for both technical/artistic ability AND content -- It looked fantastic plus it put to bed the argument that the Big E couldn't have been constructed on the ground.

Generations was an emergency landing, and I'd say it was a very successful one, what with no one dying. Plus Troi was at the helm. I'm sure the saucer could do loopdy-loops in the atmosphere on a good day.

Oh, no, not a chance. Good Lord, no. But did you notice that there are still people who believe Tom Cruise is going to be in the movie?

A Daniel Broadway campaign of disinformation could have been an extraordinary success at hopelessly confusing all conversations on "built in space" topics until they had no choice but to go away and die as the ought. Obviously, no one who reads TrekMovie.com would be fooled for a minute... but the rest of the Internet? Victims waiting to happen.

Didn't we see the Enterprise maneuver in Earth's atmosphere in "Tomorrow is Yesterday"?

See the book "The Making of Star Trek" by David Gerrold. I'm pretty sure it's considered somewhat definitive on the subject. Jeffries knew what Roddenberry's limitations on f/x were and ran with the "no atmosphere" rule (short of what was shown in "Tomorrow is Yesterday", I suppose). The grey lady was never intended to be flown in an atmosphere for ANY length of time short of the accidental post-time-travel dipdown in that episode which led to the destruction of Captain Christopher's jet, and she would NEVER be capable of LANDING on a planet.
