Moving the deflector into Worf's teeth makes him look rather shocked, which isn't very becoming of a warrior. Other ammendments as suggested. Expect an update with legs and vectoring nacelles.




I have printed out my design and sent it off to J.J. Abrams. C/O Paramount Pictures, USA.

I have written a very nice letter which I have signed in my own blood. Its slightly threatening in tone, but I think I get my point across.

Oh bloody hell, you beat me to it.

Oh well. Here's my take on it, at any rate:



Now with flames! Because flames are kewl.
the pictures are missing, what did you guys make?

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Two weeks ago I took my family to Disney World, so of course when we were in Epcot's Mexico pavilion, I *had* to pose with a sombrero! Please excuse the crappy camera phone pic. My youngest son looks like he's trying to eat the sombrero!

That's from close to a year and a half ago; it's hard to say. An earlier, unanimated version of this, possibly.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Just when i think this thread cant possibly get any more badass and hilarious...the link to "Sombreroprise" appears.

I've loved that thing since the first time I saw it on YouTube.

The Sombreroprise video is the repository of all that is great and wise in human culture.

Nah, it's perfect as it is! I love the fact that the thread has evolved in Sombrero Central, yet the original premise is occasionally returned to.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

I love the Blue Warp nacelles title myself. As a matter of fact, I ignored the thread for months, thinking it would be filled with canon maniacs raving about the fact the the alternate Enterprise has blue warp nacelles, all the while wondering why it managed to remain on the front page.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Did you guys start at the beginning to see it's evolution? Its epic!

Also, highly recommended is the Spock Should Constantly Be Shouting thread. Again, you have to start at the beginning to appreciate all of it's cheesy goodness.

And, of course, last but not least, the Robau thread. We really should all kneel before the greatness of Herkimer Jitty for starting that one!

That would be quite correct; the same image with fewer silly things on the ship.
