    Hard to believe she's in her mid-seventies now, but at least she's still with us unlike so many other cult TV stars over the decades. She was like the Nicole deBoer of her day in more ways than one. :)

    Gorgeous Enterprise wallpaper, man...and I really like the new "Doctor" avatar.

    I could picture him in one of the new TREK films. Admit it. So could you. ;)

    oh most definitely... he'd be awesome to see in Trek :D

    Oh, and a quick size comparison, just so you can imagine the scene from my WP in your head... all to scale :eek:

    Yeah... Captain Archer would be wetting himself if he came face to face with the Excalibur... it's gun ports are bigger than the NX Enterprise lol

    The Excalibur's main weapon, fires an energy beam around 135 meters in diameter... to put it bluntly, one shot would not only engulf the NX Enterprise, but pretty much vaporise it given the sheer destructive power we saw in the Crusade series...

    Wow.

    That thing is enormous. At first I thought it was an Andorian cruiser until I took a much closer look. For a few moments I was wondering..."why is Enterprise firing on an Andorian ship? Earth and the Andorians are allies." :)

    Isn't most of the neck on the Excalibur hangar space? I remember seeing fighters dropping from bays on the bottom of it. I think most of the crew areas are in the "fins" and the area where they intersect.

    I love that ship, though. Very cool looking.

    the hanger area is under the main 'lip'... shuttles fly in and out along the base of the 'neck' area, where the protusion comes out from the center along the underneath of the main neck towards the front...

    i'm guessing there isn't anything at the extreme front, aside from stupidly huge gun barrels lol... but i think the main 'neck' area is inhabited, as we saw shuttle cars and tubes travelling for miles in the show on a straight line...
