That's what we were aiming for.
Best ever. Great job, worth the wait!
Not review-related, but here are a few images related to the production.
Screengrab marked up to show NEO f/x how to adjust the ship path and size after their first pass.
The complete death certificate. Doc Azato made a typo on her weight: it should read 108. One subtle thing I did was to make the fields for her relations just say "relation" as opposed to "father" and "mother", knowing that the Federation would be dealing with aliens and even humans who don't conform to a strict daddy and mum binary.
Michael Buford, who plays Mr. Cutty on Exeter, and friend Nancee dress in uniform correct colors for Mike's final looping session for "The Tressaurian Intersection". They survived the session despite their red shirts.
Those 5 seconds were not too ling! ;-)
(I did notice it earlier).
Love the background information Maurice!
Now I want to watch "Tressaurian" all over again.
I told Dennis he was a "real mother".
He's been called worse.
By me! LOL
I thought this might be interesting for some. It's my original "treatment" for TTI. Josh and I had about 10 of these. Each was an outline for a potential Exeter episode. When we asked Dennis to pen a script for us, he looked them all over and decided to work from this one:
I remember the story outlines you had on the old site. Thanks for posting that.
It was fun to watch. Which is my highest grade when it comes to entertainment. It definitely "feels" more like the Star Trek I grew up with than any other fan film out there.
My hats off to the people who made this possible.
Thanks for posting, Jimm. An incredibly ambitious outline.
But the script, Dennis delevoped out of this has the advantage of offering another enemy. A situation that offers chance of addressing prejudice more clearly.
But nevertheless - what you, your brother and all of the people involved have achieved is just remarkable, outstanding!
And the best fan film ever produced, yet!
Thank you for your efforts and Greetings from Platjenwerbe!
And the very best part of having this completed is that the darned "Whatever Happened to Starship Exeter?" thread will eventually drop off the screen never to be seen again.
Famous last words.
I LOVE the attention to detail! I don't know if anyone else caught this but these screenshots back up the opinion that the bridge is NOT offset.
First we see the bridge from the top (an homage to "The Cage") which shows the external shaft at the rear of the bridge does not line up with the internal bridge doors which indicates the bridge is not offset.
And now my favorite part, in the turbolift we see Cutty and Garrovick talking. If you notice the moving deck indicator, you will see the last vertical movement (from top to bottom) that shows the turbolift has reached the bridge level. Immediately after that, you see the indicator move once from right to left, which indicates that the turbolift slid from the shaft to the right in order to line up with the bridge doors. Excellent work whoever was responsible for that!
Not that I've ever had a dog in the "offset" fight. But how does this back up anything? It's a fan made episode. It has the same weight, officially speaking, as any other fan generated idea.
As I stated, it backs up the OPINION that the bridge is not offset. It may be a fan made episode but it completely captures the look and feel of TOS during the 60's and that's good enough for me.
The turbolift is also not lined up with the exterior...just like The Cage.
Yeah, I did it that way to imitate "The Cage.". It's always looked to me like it was Jefferies intention that the turbolift fit into the cylinder in the back; rotated the way we have it, it would poke out through the hull.
