    Interesting - sounds like a focus on Jaza.

    Yes I agree. Would make for an excellent TV show.

    I actually posted that same blurb (although from the S&S Star Trek book page) in the upcoming publications thread a week or two ago. But hey, it's ok no hard feelings or anything.:thumbsup: I just wanted to point out that it wasn't anything new.
    Next month can't come soon enough. :scream:

    Hmm, interesting. I didn't see that, but then again, I don't read that thread. :angel:

    Could I possibly be more nervous?

    No.

    Not possible.

    Would be an awesome show, might get pricy because I think a few characters would need to be CGI (Ree, and one or two of the minor crew that I can't think of at the moment).

    Perosnally, I'd rather go with animatronic pupptetry myself. I'm a huge Farscape and Henson fan, and I think it would be cool to see that kind of tech used for the non-humanoid aliens on Titan.

    Is that a line from the book? Is Norellis getting fresh with Keru?

    :devil:

    The logical thing would be to use a mix of techniques, going with the best method for the needs of each particular shot. For instance, animatronics in close-ups and relatively sedentary shots, CG used when full-length shots of the character in motion are needed. That's how they did it in Jurassic Park. People give credit to the CGI for the realism of the dinosaurs in that movie, but in fact, the vast majority of the dinosaur shots were done with animatronics. They looked like they were really there because they usually were. And the CG was limited to shots where they were moving quickly enough to obscure its limitations.

    Yeah, that seems to be what most things like that do things now.

    Hey I am nervous too, since this will be my first national printed peace.

    I can't wait.

    such is the techniques used in Doctor Who and its spin-offs these days. traditional 'rubber suit' style costumes for the Slitheen for example, with CGI for them running about.

    Jaza is by far the best character in the Titan series (Bajorans rock!) so if it is him I'll be really pleased. BTW, thats one of the best Trek blurbs ever!

    There're a couple of surprises in there just for you, Sean.

    You have nothing to be nervous about.
