Flames are definately canon. Deflector dishes protruding through the face of a lead cast member are borderline I would think.

I'm not sure about the Pez dispenser. I think I saw one in "A Private Little War", but my TOS Season 2 is a little shaky.
Well, it turns out there was a PEZ dispenser gun. It's entirely possible the landing parties were outfitted with PEZ dispensing phasers and tricorders, too.

Just something to keep in mind.

Well, on away missions, it never hurts to bring snacks. That's what *I* always say!

Not quite the same thing as a marshmelon dispenser, adjusted for scale, I guess?

OK, that is the most awesomest (is that a word? It is now!) spaceship ever. Until the next kewl addition, of course. Then, it will be even awesomer.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

I wonder if this is exactly what AlboofBorg had in mind when he started this thread.

We can get flames in pretty easily.

Star Trek XI --> writers Orci and Kurtzman --> Transformers --> Optimus Prime --> flames that were never there on the original Optimus Prime.

How about some dirt?

We saw an unidentified shuttle recently in spy photos, and it was dirty and dusty. Most of us assumed (for no good reason) that this meant that everything in Star Trek XI would have that dirty, gritty, BSG look.

So can we dirty the ship up a little?

I'm not talking about battle damage. I'm talking about dirt. Maybe some trash or garbage for good measure?

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

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?

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.


Abrams!

Listen to the fans!!! This is what we want!!!!

That is a sweet ride! Now, if we can just add the sweeping red scanner to the front of the primary hull, and get William Daniels to do the voice of the ship's computer, then we'll have something!
And truck nutz.

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.

Oh my God, this is fucking GOLD! Is there any way that we can have "Lowrider" playing in the background?

This has to be one of my all time favorite Trek BBS moments right here.

Genius.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

This is wonderful.

The Internets have finally offered us proof: an unlimited number of monkeys pounding away on an infinite number of typewriters, given sufficient time, can produce "Hamlet."

But what they really want to do is direct.

I thought the same thing.
This is awesome, great work NCC-1701.

I wish I could make animated gifs like that. I always have problems with the file size being too large. I turned it into an av that I'd like to wear if you don't mind.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Good freaking Lord.

I think my favorite part is when the PEZ stops for a just a moment so the nacelles can move down. Why didn't Rick Sternbach think of this for the Voyager?

NCC-1701, any inside tips on how you did this?

Oh, forget that; any chance we can make this the official image of the Trek XI forum?
