ST First Contact - New Holodeck Arch?

I was just going over some screen grabs. It looks like they made a new arch for the movie.

Re: ST First Contact - New Holodeck Arch?

considering it was an entirely new ship with entirely different lines then the -D, why is it such a surprise that they made a new arch?

It's entirely possible.

Re: ST First Contact - New Holodeck Arch?

Yeah, looks like a totally new set piece. Has the cross-section of the Ent-E corridors, as opposed to the Ent-D arch, which is more... normal-ish. IDK.

Why even make a new one? A standard across-the-board design is easier on people and technicians.

Re: ST First Contact - New Holodeck Arch?

Joe, please resize the image before reposting it. It needs to be no more than 800 pixels wide, and see if you can't get the filesize down around 100K as well.

Thanks!

Re: ST First Contact - New Holodeck Arch?

Makes sense to have a new arch. It looks like the E doesn't use the big cargo bay style doors like its predecessor or Voyager, so a mega-arch wouldn't be necessary.

Was this Arch ever used again in the other TNG movies after First Contact? I dont remember seeing it.

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure FC was the last use of the holodeck.

Re: ST First Contact - New Holodeck Arch?

It was the only time we saw a holodeck on the Enterprise-E, anyway. The doorway on the holoship in Insurrection had yet another different arch, and there was no use of the holodeck in Nemesis.

I loved the use of the holodeck in FC. It fit.
