As envisioned, Kirk would be captain for the first 13 episodes, grooming Decker to take the center seat afterward. Shatner would then be hired on as a recurring Commodore or Admiral for a handful of episodes per season.

The long term goal would be, in fact, to replace most of the expensive established cast members with cheaper newcomers as the series progressed.
I had an idea here about the Brick Price miniature (hopefully) becoming finished and how it might be used:
Episode 116 Trek to the future
http://www.syfy.com/hollywoodtreasure/e ... the_future
More discussion here
http://www.therpf.com/f47/anyone-catch- ... re-118067/

I cannot help but remember what happened to the starfighter that Erin Gray allowed to half melt near her vent. That mold does not need be be left outdoors in those hot steel containers. I loved the real space work--and noted the Long March 3 LV, the unused model from 2010--as well as the Ares V model in the new Green Lantern Movie BTW (Brick's also?)

In some respects this is THE Phase II. Minors version became Quindar, then Constitution II (Brick's) and lastly, Tikopai (Cover of Starlog's Spaceships--to SouthBend Electronic Enterprise.)

Here was an idea for the use of the Brick Price Phase II

Now, we are seeing the Phase II stories come to life now here http://www.startreknewvoyages.com/
Here is a way to raise things up a notch. Have motion control if anyone still knows how to do that, and shoot a finished model with some grainy filmstock if possible. Here the episode would be In Thy Image (The God Thing)

But wait you say, that was ST:TMP. Well, wait awhile. First you film it stock, as originally intended by Alan Dean Foster or close enough. But here is the kicker. You have James Cawley play Decker, but Stephen Collins plays Kirk if it can be worked into the script. The first you see of James, he ridges an eyebrow, as if to say--there is something wrong. During an intermission perhaps, you have some blue ray of his character, super clear--in bed, with a different uniform on the wall.

Roles have been reversed, and he forgets his dream. The last we see, TOS Enterprise heads into Spacedock, and the music not picked for ST: TMP is played, and Scotty holds a drawing of the refit--but it is Probert's.

This, as well as kirk's obsession, helps explain why he HAD to be back on board in ST: TMP. A dim memory of fighting this relic of an unknown species, the Vegan Tyranny, the Borg, or the unseen aliens from this episode: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_Stop

So you do The Menagerie story envelope treatment of In Thy Image, yet give it a new, Dr. Who type twist.

In the last New Voyages episode, you see Collins again, this time in a time travel episode. He plays a policeman visited by Kirk and Spock in the 20th Century--a man by the name of Gene.

PS According to wiki--about STTMP "Art director Richard Taylor wanted to completely redesign the ship."

I wonder what it would have been.

More conventional

None of those links lead anywhere that makes sense.

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

The RPF link "works" but just takes me to the front page of the BBS - nothing specifically relevant to this discussion. The Bing link is similarly pointless.

How odd – I clicked the RPF link yesterday and I recall it worked. It was utterly irrelevant to the discussion at hand, but it did work.

It works to take you to the front page of the RPF BBS, at least that's what it does when I click it.

I mean it worked to take me to the "Hollywood Treasures" thread in question, not that it redirected to the homepage, which it did this time.

The post is copypasta from another forum. The other forum shortened the display URLs. Here are the full versions.

Here's an interesting thing about that rounded "E" - credits added in the second year of the show don't have it.

Shatner and Nimoy's credit retains it - but Kelley's credit has the "E" with corners, as does the "Created By Gene Roddenberry" card.

During the first year, the Trek font was not used for episode titles or for show's end credits - at least not during the first part of the year; I'm not sure if that was changed by season's end.

Does anyone know who designed the font?
Richard Edlund designed the Star Trek title font. He was working with Joe Westheimer at the time at his facility over on Seward, where most of the planets and some of the transporter and various other effects were produced.
