I rather like that. It's nice to see the use of the movie style wraparound, but subdued so that it's not so obviously a jacket.

Re: From the Era of Captain Robert J. April

Nifty.

But when did it become "Robert J. April"?

Since all main Captains have 'J's in their names.

James T. Kirk
Jean-Luc Picard
Benjamin Sisko
Kathryn Janeway

So to fit the pattern April needs a J.

Not to mention Jonathon Archer.

Re: From the Era of Captain Robert J. April

I would propose Robert Jefferies April.

Nice work, BTW, uniderth.

Re: From the Era of Captain Robert J. April

Well, in the initial format pitch, it was Robert M. April, and later versions had it as Robert T. April (I don't recall if his middle initial was mentioned in "The Counter-Clock Incident").

Of course, there is the tradition of giving cartoon characters a middle initial of J.

Bullwinkle J. Moose.

Rocket J. Squirrel

Homer J. Simpson

Bartholomew J. Simpson

Re: From the Era of Captain Robert J. April

I think he was called 'Robert Townsend April' in something.

Re: From the Era of Captain Robert J. April

Let's not forget one of Star Trek's most celebrated commanders, J.J. Adams.

No, Adams, of United Space Cruiser C-57D.



See, he even has that stray forelock that marks a true starship commander.

I stand corrected.

"I just wanted to tell you both, good luck..."

Of course, wasn't Joseph Adama a lawyer and his son William the commander?
