    You are breaking several people's rules...

    1. No holodecks...what the hell...did it anyway ;)
    2. No crossovers...what the hell...did it anyway ;)
    3. No Picard in gold...what the hell...did it anyway ;)

    I'm sure Picard finds the TOS bridge more to his liking without some ditzy woman "feeling" in his ear all the time. :D

    Hmmm....Women feeling in my ear...I'm sensing a Ferengi moment. :rolleyes:
    How can that be...I'm a TOS man!!!

    The frigthening thing is Picard might fail commanding a TOS era bridge exercise. If you're about to be blown out of the sky then it is not an opportune time to call for a conference! :lol:

    Technically TAS introduced the holodeck in "The Practical Joker." Anyways maybe as a holodeck exercise I should have had Picard face the Gorn. :D

    Re: TOS movie what if...

    Funny, i have done exactly the same thing.

    I have got an outline of a trilogy of fan fics to start of an April legacy.

    The start is a whole backstory to how April got the Enterprise, the fic ends as April gets the enterprise and gives the order to leave spacedock.

    The second pics up as the Enterprise runs a shakedown, encountering problems en-route such as; computer glitches, turbolifts going to wrong decks, power being lost on the bridge for a few seconds, introduction of the 'The Cage' type uniforms that replace my own uniform design for the series etc etc. - Basically putting a little humour and 'Not everythings perfect' type thing that TFF tried and that 'Enterprise' seems to be lacking, i havnt seen Ent since episode 5 so...

    All i have done is put Humans in a real life situation, working out the bugs in the system type of thing, afterall, its a new ship, things are bound to go wrong, nothings perfect even in 23rd century.

    The third installment is the official mission...

    Those are the three big fics, the trilogy, they explain everything, get everything swinging, with a kick. The next lot of fics are stories, of course, about the universe and everything trek such as politics, war-fare, social sciences, human nature and the like.


    It also has to do with art as i am using image sampling for various scenes, im wont reveal the cast as yet, but pho-manips of the past that i have have cropped up occasionally explaining some stuff. ;)

    I wont reveal Aprils character profile just yet though... :D

    That seems more like a Tom Paris thing to do instead of Picard.

    Re: Never seen TOS scenes...

    I was fearing that you had gotten a little too soft on the idea of rules. :lol:

    But if you decide to have crossovers and holodecks in some future pic, let me suggest a new rule...turn the holodeck safeties off. :D

    Great shot 4MM! :D

    Two questions though:
    What are the names on #5 and #6 shuttles? Can't make them out.
    Is the formation a little tight, or are the Starfleet's finest flying the ambassadors in an airshow before landing? :D

    Correct. The grain made that harder to read than I realised. Here's the clean one:

    NCC-1701/7 Galileo, /6 Columbus, /8 Magellan (explorer)

    It's definately a sloppy formation but any looser and you'd NEVER have a chance at making out the names. Besides a nice tight formation is less of a mental challenge because you can use visual references off the ship your following to maintain precise relative position. Although we might have to forget that #6 and #8 are flying on instruments, I won't tell if you don't.

    Re: Never seen TOS scenes...

    It was discussed earlier way upthread, but here's my take on the TWoK uniforms. I still don't like their design yet here I've used a softer command gold, Spock is back in science blue, McCoy's life sciences division is more easily distinguished by being green, and finally Chekov in security has a darker shade of red than the regular support services.

    Re: Never seen TOS scenes...

    One reason why the various uniform colors worked in TOS was that the shirts themselves were so simple. However, I think that with the much more elaborate jackets of the movies, the colors would have been a bit much, especially on the big screen. But, it's cool to see as a "what if?"

    Sidestepping a little, but what if TNG had followed TOS' ideas more faithfully...

    The TNG shade of gold is rather uncomplimentary and so I opted for something closer to TOS sensibilities.
