Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

An email worm and virus, hgh.exe it looks like, destroyed my computer.

Fortunately I have an external hard drive unit I've been using for Polaris, so I hit Best Buy last evening, picked up a faster and cheaper machine with more drive space (it's amazing how everything doubles or better every year or so) and have reconstructed most of my data files on the new machine.

Cost me a day's delay.

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

I suggest reformatting and reinstalling your old machine and use it as a backup machine to copy important stuff to, I've done so for many years already and it has saved me a lot of time and agravation at times.

Also run a little render farm.

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

Yeah, the new machine's having intermittent trouble connecting with the web, though. Hope that'll be worked out shortly.

Given that's where high.exe came from in the first place, maybe that's a good thing! What are you using for anti-virus software? Back in my Windows days, I was very fond of Eset Nod.

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

I don't know who designed the old Star Trek font, but for what it's worth, the other orthographic change (besides the "E") that took place starting with the second season is the letter "H:" in the first season font, the horizontal crossbar on the "H" was perfectly horizontal, but starting with the second season, the crossbar was slightly diagonal--like the center crossbar on the letter "A." (The old-syle "H" is still retained in William Shatner's credit through all three seasons, however.)

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?

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

The deal with the "H" sounds like the same as the "E" - those opening credits that existed as art from the first season were left alone, but anything new added included the change.

Fun stuff here; it's great seeing the Phase II Enterprise in action! Not to divert focus from Dennis' great rendering, but if I might suggest, this HAS to be the Phase II theme music:



Maybe from 0:38 to 1:13 or so... Yeah, it's the TMP theme but it would so give that late-'70s Dallas (or dare I say Space: 1999?) vibe. If you figure Phase II was going to be relatively low-budget with a lot of then-new video effects, they might have gone with a theme like this. Someone else already put this onto the end credits of TMP, but it might work even better here!

Gag me with a painstick.

And whoever said that Phase II was going to be a low budget show?
