+ the cost of filming in California as compared to Canada.
I know - widely off-topic, but:
My favourite explanation/theory for that is:
Of course Starfleet doesn't have the death penalty for traveling to Talos (remember - they all did in that episode)
Everyone in Starfleet thinks they have the death penalty for traveling to Talos. Because - you know - Talosian illusions.
That's the Talosian way of secluding themselves. Basically everybody who knows about Talos - once they're thinking about Talos - suddenly has the illusion of "don't go there under death penalty" ("Don't think about a pink elephant"-style). Very similar to "the silence" from Doctor Who.
Oh, Starfleet has lots of death penalties in the books. They just happen to come and go as the situation warrants. This week, it's something relating to General Order 7. Next week, that's sorted out, but it's either slap the death penalty on violations of General Order 4 or risk the loss of everything we hold dear. And then that gets sorted out, but you really need to put fear in the hearts of those who wrong Sub-Clause 4711 in Bylaw 227.
Of course, it seldom works, as death threats are like flypaper for those who think they live forever. So they do have to kill Harry Mudd every second offense or so. It's convenient he does have this thing with immortality, endless copies and time loops, then.
Yep. It's still in regular naval usage across the planet.
i'm super in love with these new romulan (maybe zhat vash) warbirds:
More like aeroshuttles than ships
they might be small, they almost look like modern fighter jets. but they also look like a reasonable evolution of the valdore type warbird...
They look like modern fighter jets because they were designed by John Eaves.
The guy needs to expand his influences.
I like it...
I like Eaves' work too, but you can't deny that's he a little....one note. Even Sternbach, who I would class as more of a technical artist than a designer, eventually grew and expanded his style over the years. Eaves has been doing the same darn thing since he started working on Star Trek thirty years ago.
Doug Drexler needs to be brought in. I'm telling you guys. Drexler.
Is Franz Joseph still alive? Checks....no. Damn!
TBH, FJ was somewhat one-note as well. He did a lot with the same 4 or 5 parts.
That image isn't loading for me.
Yes, and I'm OK with that.
Mileage and all that jazz.
But he was the first - that gives him a pass.
I would actually like to see more than just a silhouette of the Curiosity class. I mean, yeah, it's like a mini Sovereign with the engines going straight out, but I still want details, dammit!!
I too am curious about the Curiosity class.
Curiosity killed the Kzinti.
thankfully i still have eight lives
We seriously need spacecraft that look like steam locomotives. Or ocean liners.
That was public service, though: fans in possession of one or two ATM kits could build their very own destroyers and tugs!
