    Sorry, that was a typo on my part. I meant to say the networks and the celebrities(who have thoughts of committing such a useless experiment)should take their cues from those like the late Stanley Kubrick and Harrison Ford.

    [LEFT] While y'all are talking about celebrities, Cutty has a thought about Act 4...but clearly no one's interested in that.

    Very nice graphics there, Maurice. More of your work?

    Yeah, I designed most of Cutty's station. Since I used to do video game design, including starship controls for some space combat simulations, I designed them to actually be functional.

    Maybe so. However, former Vice President Chaney has not had a meltdown like Gibson and Sheen have.

    Well I'm interested! My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention over what that picture might mean!

    OTOH, neither Gibson nor Sheen has shot any friends in the face and gotten away scott free.

    As far as we know.:shifty:

    Huzzah! I LOVED that game!

    Those displays look like they work AND they look like TOS. Nicely done.

    Agreed.

    Everytime I hear the argument that the original Enterprise wouldn't stand up to scrutiny on the big screen, all I have to do is look to fan films to know how wrong that assessment is. :techman:

    The fan film set has not been built that wouldn't be laughed off of the big screen, sorry - no matter how cool the retro graphics are.

    Fans already buy into TOS, so of course they'll be pleased if the old designs are rendered well. Trek fans are not anyone's target audience at the multiplex, so the assessment that these things "wouldn't stand up" is the correct one.

    My point was: these fan films are very impressive with little to no money. A big time director with a $150 million dollar budget could make those 60's designs shine.

    In your not so humble opinion, which, accompanied by a quarter, won't get a lousy cup of coffee.

    Captain Robert April, I would like to quote the following.

    "My compliments to you, sir."
