Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

^I think it was Cogley making a comment on how the Enterprise that the folks here were "remaking" should have a sombrero instead of a saucer section. The sombrero was a staple of all Enterprise redesigns to follow, and eventually it turned inot sombrero-izing everything that moves.

Ok, I have been laughing my ass off at this thread, particularly at all the artistic absurdity lol.

You guys truly are masters.

I'm gonna sound like a total moron though. Where did all this sombrero stuff come from?

At first I thought that it had to do with Mexicans being portrayed in the new upcoming movie. Then I thought maybe it had to do with the trailer and the saucer section of the "new" Enterprise.

How close am I? am I totally off?
It all started with this:

Should the "re-imagined" NCC-1701 have blue warp nacells as the Enterprise NX-01 and C through E have? I'd personally like to see it.
Then Samuel T. Cogley said this:
Samuel T. Cogley wrote: View Post
The port nacelle should be blue, and the starboard nacelle should be hot pink.

And the blue nacelle should be played by William Shatner.

Anyone ready with the photoshop?

Let's do some pre-vis.

Listen to the fans!!! This is what we want!!!!
Then...
Samuel T. Cogley wrote: View Post
NOW we're getting somewhere. Can we put Worf's face where the deflector dish should be? You know, to scare away villains?
Samuel T. Cogley wrote: View Post
Look at it again. The portly nacelle doubles as a Shatner Pez dispenser.

He shoots Pez out of his mouth at hostile incoming.

Can we add that?

(Or maybe Smarties, instead, since the nacelles are round.)
john1701 supplied the next prototype for the yet-unnamed Sombreroprise:


Samuel T. Cogley then added "And can we have an actual Pez candy (or approximation) being shot out of Shatner's mouth (but not obscuring his face?)."

PKTrekGirl chimed in, pointing out that she thought "...it would be nice if we hung some Christmas lights around the edges of the saucer section. You know - give it that festive touch."

Gep Malakai added teh lights and flames:


There were already plans to add vectoring nacelles and twinkling lights to the still-in-development Sombreroprise, but Samuel T. Cogley came up with the most important post in the whole thread:
Samuel T. Cogley wrote: View Post
And is there any way we can make the saucer section look more like a sombrero? Or maybe put a sombrero on top of the saucer section?
With that post, a legend was born, and NCC-1701 christened this new creation the Sombreroprise:

Where the hell is Belar (NCC-1701)when we need him? That guy is the friggin' MASTER of the animated .gif
Where he is? Funnily enough he was already working on an animation of the new Sombreroprise. Here it is:



Oh, and that was very charming, PKTrekGirl! Thank you.
Samuel T. Cogley then suggested that the eyes be added:
Samuel T. Cogley wrote: View Post
I'm wondering if it needs Cookie Monster eyes, either on top of or just underneath the saucer section. (With one of the two pupils swirling around.) Too much?
NCC-1701 added them and we ended up with this:


EliyahuQeoni then added a couple more items to the almighty Sombreroprise:

Well, since the Fuzzy Dice seemed to be a popular addition, I added them to the larger image & threw in Mr Fusion at no extra charge

Indeed. Very well done, 26138! Next time someone asks about the origins of the Sombreroprise phenomenon I'm just gonna link to your post.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

LMAO that was great!!!! Well, here's to the Sombreroprise. I for one am looking forward to the movie.

The best animation was the Sombrero Generations, and NOW I understand the Menorah! hah hah

The LCARS blueprints were just awesomeness though.

If there's ever a convention here in Toronto, I'm going just to wear a Sombrero lol

At least it was a post that actually added a new pic to the thread.

Nah. You didn't kill it. The thread just occasionally experiences a lull. Then, just around the time we think it's dead for sure his time, it suddenly rears its sombrero clad head, and lives on.

You admitted to pirating Photoshop. By board rules, we must all shun you.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

lol..... wait, its actually still for sale?! I though that was all people did any more was crack it, i thought adobe would have gone out of business because they obviously don't make enough money to support their poor frail little business through other products that people actually want to pay for. and besides, if they didn't want us to crack it and such, why did they make it so easy to do in the first place?
