    Sounds good. If I can do anything to help, let me know. I'm one of the folks on programming this year, and I'd be happy to pitch in.

    Dennis,

    Send me your e-mail addy or home addy. I have the perfect main theme for you and incidental music. You might get alot of milage out of alternates as it were, with all due respect. Send me a consent form and a PM and I'll get back to you. I compose science fiction music and have the perfect thing.

    Sincerely, Jim Caserta

    He only got that raised eyebrow because I had a hand in his pants...to hook up on the battery for his collar lights... really!

    Later I moved the battery to inside his sleeve, all for the sake of decorum. Yeah, that was it. ;)

    I always thought I look kinda like a special needs person in that pic. Of course, some would argue I am.

    That's a big gun!

    Right, I forgot, taunting is only advisable if you're Jack O'Neill.

    Well, I'll be sending you a postcard with my atomized remains.

    ^Hey, I recognize that "scope" on top of the gun. It's a combo flashlight-radio originally in bright yellow plastic, right?

    Heh. I just bring it up because I build a pseudo-Aliens Motion Tracker out of one of those many years ago. Funny to see it pop up in another homemade prop context.

    Yeah, it's an interesting gadget that doesn't really look like a flashlight so it makes a nice basis for a prop. DS9Sega has come up with some even cooler stuff to use for scientific instruments. for our upcoming shoot.

    I do hope that first contact phaser rifle wasn't an expensive kit or anything...

    Why? It'd be a long way from the biggest set or prop expense we've had, and we're putting it to a good use.

    Cannibalising props into other props is a long-standing tradition. Trek did it all the time. :)
