    The article is interesting enough but not entirely accurate. The film and its production art was discussed in some depth in this old thread "Planet of the Titans Revisited" <link>.

    Well done. For a 9 minute clip, it engrossed me FAR more than I would have expected.
    Very, VERY well done.

    It's Longfellow. Though I got a word wrong in it. My fault and I didn't notice until just now. :-/

    Not to mention my favorite Trek starship ever, the movie Enterprise with the cool new nacelles. Life am good. :bolian:

    It's not the movie Enterprise. It's the TOS Enterprise with Jefferies-designed Phase II nacelles and some visible airlocks and other details.

    Having rewatched it a bit, I probably could have done without the TWOK music and the nearly-shot-for-shot recreation of the ship exit from the end of TMP. Your mileage may vary of course.

    I did like how they threw in a literal mention of "Phase Two," and in a perfectly acceptable, diagetic and non fanwanky way.

    Mileage always varies! Nothing wrong with that.

    Exactly! They basically tried to combine the best aspects of both designs.

    Both the TOS ship and Jefferies's Phase II version? Yep.

    As far as the ST:TMP Enterprise is concerned, I don't see a single element from it incorporated into this version. I may be missing something.

    I noticed that the exterior bridge dome still has the one turbolift shaft, which is consistent with the interior set.

    The only remote TMP connection I could identify is that Tobias kept the artistic element of a of a grill pattern on the impulse engine, rather than just a flat illuminated plane like during TOS. But that's pretty superficial.

    The impulse engines ever never illuminated on Star Trek. TMP was the first place we saw that.

    Just got around to seeing this. I really liked it. :techman:

    The fruit salad on the Admiral's uniform worked really well is a comment I haven't seen in the thread yet.

    Arex was great. The whole look was awesome. A very promising intro to, um, phase two of Phase II! ;)

    P.S. I liked the implied backstory of what Phase II means: the next phase after Phase I in the new engine test. Who gets credit for that idea (apologies if I missed it in the thread)?

    I was surprised by how well that worked actually.

    Any sign of a download? I want to watch this on my TV. :)
