    They were using Kelvin timeline stardates and ship designs (with TOS nacelles to make them "transformative") in Prelude to Axanar.

    Apparently flathead screws are beyond 23rd century tech.

    Given their "quality" how is that surprising?

    And the Ares inner Hull/Deck walls are made out of poorly painted plywood too.

    There's a surprising amount of excess paint on the top edge of the chair too.

    Quality!!! :beer:

    Egad, I have a ton of ancient screws in my cellar from the previous owner (NB we have lived here since '95; the previous owners were here for 42 years and the house was built in 1896 or 1897 or 1914 -- depends on who you talk to) which are in about the same shape as those screws.

    You think I can become a contributor if I send over the old screws (there are nails and some spiderwebs mixed in there for free) in a pair of coffee cans?

    Don't forget the Donor Store. Alec had to get his inventory from somewhere, and as you recall, patches purchased through the DS were shipped quickly.

    As for that Captain's Chair panel... seriously? That's the best you can do?
    It's clear all the competent help left the production a long time ago.

    Why use 4 screws when you can use 6!! I really don't understand three screws on the smaller ends and no screws on the long ends; WTF?

    They need a 3d printer to make various greebles to cover stuff like that. They don't even have to be competent 3d artists. they can just minecraft their way through it with someitng like the 3d slash website.

    They. Don't. Know. What. They. Are. Doing.

    And Alec wasn't there... some minion just sent him the pictures.

    Wouldn't a thin strip of double sided sticky tape be sufficient? Much tidier too!

    That’s how having 2 degrees in theater pays off.

    Thin Velcro is often a good solution because it allows you to easily lift the panel and get to the equipment under it.

    I used to use a lot of magnetic tape around the factory but I think in this case a nice funding program would be in order.
