Ok, the "group" shot with the "School girls" is a bit gratuitous, don't you think?

They are a pop-music/theatre group in Japan called AKB48.

Re: Life Sized Enterprise Wasn't a Joke

Geez, check out this post over there:

I see now from perusing other photos from WCBS that it is indeed not constructed to exact studio specs. (Thick neck, balooning lower saucer, possibly too ample lighted dome, etc.) Cables from the ceiling in other shots are clearly visible.
A fairly fidelic attempt and a fine publicity stunt nevertheless….

Also hotlinked, which is a no-no.

(Thanks for quoting it, everyone. )
