Wow! Never saw that shot before. Pretty cool!
Yeah, that shot was created first for publicity---basically an early announcement--"This isn't going to be just staring at the view screen with jaws agape."
There was another one showing the Reliant megaphasers hitting the torpedo bay, and I think it was the tie in movie mag that showed Reliant venting blood like plasma...
These were just ILM showing what it could do
The cut scene between Data and Picard discussing a bottle of wine is one of my favourite scenes in all of theatrical Trek. I find Nemesis is improved immeasurably if I watch that scene immediately after the credits roll.
Agreed, but it would have added a lot of heft to the themes of the film. Genesis = new life. You've got Kirk dealing with his son (a new life he and Carol created) so it would be a great thematic counterpoint if Khan had a son that he sacrificed in the name of revenge.
[Edit: I didn't know that Ex Astris Scientia does not want thier pictures used outside their website]
^^ Please notice that the bottom picture is "flopped" / reversed / mirrored. Strange, I only do recall having it seen like this (i.e. Starlog and other magazines)
Similarly, I'd seen the shot below a million times and only now noticed it's the close up section and the primary hull is obviously missing.
As originally conceived the initial attack was far more devastating--knocking the saucer clean off!
A link to a very rare deleted scene from First Contact.
One of the few!
I think he was making a joke, Maurice...
Yes, I sure was! Sorry for the confusion--7 months after I posted it!
Maybe you should have winked.
I suspected it might be, but people here parrot so many ludicrous claims that it's difficult to know what's real and what's earnest!
That clip was posted (a while ago, actually) on actor James Mapes' website, as part of his demo reel (which includes a deleted scene from First Contact).
Here you can see the original video: http://www.jamesmapesactor.com/demo-reel
I'm hugely surprised that Paramount would give an actor access to a deleted scene that they themselves never offered for viewing.
That's better than what we got on screen--but with a still, you can take your time.
In the lower photo (also on my Starlog mag)--the reliant is venting plasma, not sparkles.
Looking at how both shots look--you can understand why I consider STII to be a slasher film--spawned by bloody horror films from the late 1970s-early 1980's
