Mutarada and I made this video. Some think we have too much time on our hands. You decide!

Awesome! Quite well done. But if we're going to maintain the integrity of the order, shouldn't it begin with The Voyage Home, and get all the way to Undiscovered Country before going back to the first two?

Re: Alternate Star Trek II Main Titles

Looks great, but if you want to get really nit-picky in the interest of details...

It should be "Bennettfilm Productions". The main "Star Trek" logo could use a little tweaking to take a bit of the horizontal lines on the S and T off the left side and add them to the R and K on the right to center the text a little more. The crawl text should be a little more bold and should be re-worked to 3 paragraphs instead of 2.

Very cool. Though it should probably be "creating life on dead planets; destroying every microbe on living planets" instead of "recreating life on lifeless planets" (there's no original life to recreate).

Perhaps a tilt to Earth and a wipe to the simulator room too?

I'd tilt to a shot of the Enterprise in space, to preserve the surprise of the simulator scene.

Re: Alternate Star Trek II Main Titles

Yeah, I thought Earth might be a good compromise because it's not like we're tilting to San Francisco. Or maybe it's a tilt to a grid of the Neutral Zone on the main viewscreen, the whole titles sequence was in the simulator room.

Yes, a 1960s styled optical zoom out, similar to the opening of "Where No Man Has Gone Before" would be good.

But alas, the program I used only renders Star Wars title crawls and nothing beyond that.
