Be curious to see what the actors looks like sans make up.
Someone made an interesting comment on the YouTube video:
And two more very short videos from last year:
More information on these earlier projects, including the Spock prosthetcis:
Yeoman Colt is back! Love it.
You had not seen this before? It's an impressive actress doubling as Laurel Goodwin. I was quite surprised.
Why couldn't they use her as "Colt" in Disco S2?...
Good question. They seem less inclined to use Cage characters now.
Presumably because they were not interested in using Colt at all. Which is fair -- she's not so much an interesting character as she is a straight male power fantasy (the hot young girl fresh out of college with a crush on the boss).
I love this video so much. I always thought the saucer was either chopped up into bits and thrown in a garbage dump or at worst it had been left there to rot and maybe it would turn up in a mission in Online or something (I could visualise some first person shooter type thing where you're moving through corridors in the wrecked saucer while the forest has started to grow back through the ship). This is much nicer. Having it tie into "The Return" is pretty wild, as long as the Romulans don't start raining down disruptors and the Farragut starts getting wrecked. At the end I kinda was expecting a transporter beam and then the grave to crumble.
One, we rarely have seen non-Federation, non-Starfleet vessels, so you can't really say that these ships are "SW ships". I seriously doubt that there is a "standard" design for civilian ships, especially the construction type.
Two, we're looking at a salvage operation. For all we know, those "cables" aren't really cables, but could be used to patch/fill-up/etc. the ship in preparation for lift off. Because, you're right; it wouldn't make sense to use cables to lift the ship, in an age where tractor beams are the norm.
Which is silly and reductive.
A decent writer could easily flesh out Colt's characterization: starts out as a fresh out-of-the-Academy officer, with a crush on Captain Pike. Five years later, you get a seasoned Colt, having had her share of experiences out in "deep space", while learning that, at the end of the day, Pike is just as human as everyone else, and thus comes to admire and respect her captain as such.
No, it's not. It's an accurate assessment of Colt's role in "The Cage." She is there to be a straight male power fantasy of the hot young thang that's got a crush on the boss. She has no hidden depths, no real personality to speak of, no complications or nuance.
Sure. But why do that if you're not particularly interested in the "young-person-with-a-crush-on-the-captain" angle in the first place? Why keep Colt when you can, for instance, flesh out another young person fresh out of the Academy by the name of Nyota Uhura?
I wonder if the ships above Enterprise are supplying power to the salvage operation? Instead of tractor beams, it be more useful to get the ships' power and structural integrity field working enough to move itself, with assistance, into orbit, and then have enough of a field to allow other starships to tow it into warp.
They remind me of the Baxial a bit.
They're pumping helium into the dish to make it float
Oh...thought she had green skin.
The doctor, or the one with the ears....or the one in the furs?
The one in the coveralls.
Yep! They are supplying power - they were definitely not intended to be "tug" ships. We deliberately made it so the cables have no tension in them to try to convey that distinction.
