    Why would it be proto?

    Never noticed that. So awesome!

    I suppose those lower deck spaces, like where you stuck the giant mushroom room, could have also worked and been a little closer to the size of the empty rec room seen in "Joker".

    Time was we'd have thought a starship having a dedicated room for mushrooms was eccentric. I miss those days.

    Heh, I tend to partition TOS off into it’s own thing so the connection never even occurred to me.

    TOS as it's own thing, separated from TMP forward, is the best way for me. I enjoy it way more because it feels wide open and full of possibilities.

    It’s been a long tome since I did that so I’m not sure my memory is accurate, but I believe the placement on deck seven was from TMoST. The “giant mushroom” room is the botanical garden so it was purposely near where it ended up in TMP.

    I should point out relative to this holodeck business that next to the botanical garden is the zoology lab, and those confined little cages the Capellan power cat, mugato, and Regulan eel bird are stuck in were intended by me to be mini holospaces.

    The first minute of the first Star Trek Continues episode “Pilgrim Of Eternity” showed us a TOS era “holodeck.” However, it’s something they never revisted.

    It's a next level kind of meta where a guy does a whole show to cosplay an old show and then inside of that show he has a scene so the FX guy can cosplay an even older show.

    It was fun. I’m a TOS first guy and I also really like Have Gun—Will Travel.

    You might disagree with some of his ideas, but his project still captures the imagination.

    Having a Jeffries tube *up front* might be nice for him on the leading edge, that has a different exterior color anyway.

    STC did revisit the holodeck in the episode "The White Iris."

    Oops, thats right! I forget…possibly because I really didn’t like that episode. It was such a contemporary perspective with the idea that Kirk was somehow broken and had to be “fixed” to be whole. TOS would never have done a story like that about its major character. It was very much a contemporary Trek type of story.

    Indeed a distinctive strain of contemporary mindset runs through STC that keeps the series from really feeling like genuine TOS. Instead of focusing on writing TOS type stories (and the way they were written) they couldn’t resist writing it more like TNG and inserting callouts to later productions to connect-the-dots and show off their knowledge of franchise lore.

    There was a lot I liked about STC, but they needed better script editing, resist the fanboy callouts and ditch the current day mindset. They made creative choices I found truly stupid and even insulting to TOS’ overall vision.


    At some point I want to do a revisit of STC to see how it holds up after not seeing it for awhile. I watched it while they were being released and even contributed to their Kickstarter drive. But I do remember feeling a roller coaster of emotions from “Thats freakin’ awesome!” to “Aww, c’mon! Why did they do that?” There were things I really wish they would have done and things I think they absolutely should not have done.

    At least, unlike TOS-R, they were respectful of the original hangar deck. :D
