    Brilliant! I know if I had a time-travel capable fleet I'd definitely send a mission to view the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs. I love it!

    But is it just me, or are those the exact same figures inthe exact same poses as your entry last month...?

    Weird. The picture didn't show up yesterday and I tried reloading and revisiting several times. I was starting to wonder if the smiley on the bottom of your OP was it.

    It's awesome :bolian:

    It's not an asteroid; it's a space freighter filled with cybernetic soldiers and a teenaged boy unable to pilot the craft. ;)

    Sincerely,

    lol...

    Here's the 2nd draft. I replaced the crew and decided that they were unrealistically close to the rock -- and also that such a pic wasn't complete w/o a T. Rex roaring defiance at the unfairness of it all.
    I may redo the meteor yet again, but I like the rest better.

    ^I'm unsure about how the T-Rex is standing on the edge of that rock jutting above the water. It looks like he might be trying to keep his balance as the asteroid is blazing through the sky.

    Also, is the team physically interacting with the time period? They would be still close to the blast. Really, I think it doesn't matter how close they are to the asteroid trailing in the sky. Either way, they are fucked unless they are out of phase, or had their craft programmed to travel back to their time just before the blast arrives at their location.

    My point is both are good. I don't care how close those guys are :)

    Yes, they're programmed to snap back right after it hits... The bit of time-energy field still around it is meant to imply a standby mode. :D

    And that was the flattest terrain I had handy, I agree it needs to be adjusted lol.

    :bolian: but not before a bunch of them went into stasis in huge underground cities, and others built a space ark and set out for the delta quadrant, and some...

    ^I googled him. Sounds like a...colorful guy for his time. I liked how he told his..."critics" that he just wrote what he heard :lol:

    I love it!

    It's funny that dinosaur's reactions to seeing a falling asteroid is to stick their tails into the air! :D

    Seriously though... what a great idea!

    ^ [dinosaur geek]They are supposed to be like that. The T-Rex's tail would flex upward when it jerks back its head for balance. Beside, the sauropods (probably apatosaurus in this case) probably didn't wade in water for the water pressure would be suffocating not to mention they weren't around by the time this happened [/dinosaur geek]


    This one got my vote!
