    I have almost the opposite opinion: it seemed to me like the Spock scream was supposed to meld right into the screaming sound the Vengeance made as it barely missed hitting the Enterprise. If anything, it should have been more abrupt, and should have been almost immediately drowned out by Khan's passing.

    Thus the sound of the Vengeance plummeting out of the sky might be confused with the sound of a thousand demons conjured straight out of the pit of hell by Spock's unadulterated rage.

    I'm intrigued. Maybe this figures into the plot of STXIII?

    Click on the "magnifying glass" at the lower right corner of the image, which will give a slightly larger image in a pop-out. Then click on the "magnifying glass" symbol at the lower right corner of that for the really huge image. (5500 x 2000)

    It is an awesome annotation, and like teacake, it makes me want to live in the future.

    I'm not seeing any magnifying glass, on either Safari or Firefox (Mac 10.8 here). Is it something I'd need to have a Photobucket account to get?

    I don't think so - I tried logging out of Photobucket and what I see then can be seen in the attachment below, with magnify button circled.

    Or we could try a direct link to the image, instead of to the html page containing the image. See if this works.

    Kudos to King Daniel for the annotated image. Well done.

    I also appreciate the depictions of Future Earth, and how attractive they make our planet look. I would love to live there, minus of course the crashing starships. ;)

    Well, this is peculiar. I'm just not getting any magnifying glass, and I don't see an obvious cause: Javascript's on, of course, and I'm pretty free and open about network connections. I tried it again with pop-ups allowed, too, and that's produced nothing. (I took a screen shot just to prove I'm not mad.)

    I'm disappointed that I somehow can't see it, but, obviously it's some issue Photobucket is having with my system and I can't reasonably expect people to put a real effort in to fixing that for me.

    Fear not, Nebusj! I uploaded everything to my Imgur account. Let me know if they work.

    Here's the big annotated version: http://imgur.com/DVLLGdw
    Here's the big plain version: http://imgur.com/K9IKFEj

    Thanks!:)
    That was the news ticker running along the bottom of the screen. There was no audio, sadly.
    Me too!
    Galorndon Core was where Geordi and that Romulan were forced to work together in "The Enemy". In that episode, it was wreckage of a Romulan ship. I guess they've been crashing ships there for awhile!
    Thank you both!:)

    Why oh why will I be dead before the future happens
    So depressing to think about missing everything.

    Heh, this is a bit upside-down. I use Opera 12, and if a feature is going to work with all browsers except one, Opera 12 is more often than not the one which isn't supported. Looks like Daniel has provided a set of alternate links, though, so you should be able to see it all now, one way or another.

    Oh, excellent. The imgur pictures all work perfectly on my system. Thanks for going to the effort.

    I'm also mightily impressed by the production team to cram so much stuff, and so much continuity-relevant stuff, into the margins. The selection of stuff is interesting too, considering that, like, the Menk? Granting that they have a good, meaty story behind them, they're not exactly the aliens who come up if you ask someone to name the top … 75 … species in Trek.

    Definitely much love went into creating the universe the characters inhabit. Another thing to love! :techman:

    Even in the future they're saying the same thing.

    "Why oh why will I be dead before the Federation gets cloaking devices?"

    I loved this movie, and I LOVE this Thread...read it all at work, instead of actually doing my work...

    "Damn it, Jim...I'm Fired!"

    Great stuff, All, but can we, pretty please, get back to Teacake slapping the shit out of Nerys Myk, for whatever reason...

    ...was kinda diggin' it!... :0

    ...seriously, one of the best Threads, thus far...

    No no that was J.Allen doing the slapping. He's good at that, it's one of his things. In love of course.

    Only if you forget to moisturize regularly.
