    i have to make a new Seven award. I must have deleted :cry: and the server as you know lost it. Three award categories this week. One clearly is cloaked ;)

    Wow, that is gullible @Laura Cynthia Chambers
    Torres: "What's wrong with him?"
    Neelix: "I told him we're being invaded by invisible slug creatures that will devour any full Human that moves. He's been like that for hours now."

    You had me at puke green shirt @Cutie McWhiskers
    Bored, Ensign BrownPukeGreenShirt decides to watch his favorite TV show.


    For our entertainment(or gross out) award @Mr. Soak
    Jonas: There are two giant salamanders here, and they appear to be mating. Should I inform the Captain?
    Neelix: Should you tell him, or shall I?

    Talking dirty: @Triskelion
    Paris: I can't believe these idiots routed their duotronic attenuator through a monaxial polaron amplification circuit using a magnetic constriction algorithm to modulate a steady state actuation sensor. Everybody knows you have to route a duotronic attenuator through a monoaxial polaron amplification circuit using a magnetic constriction algorithm to modulate a boolean actuation sensor!
    Janeway<com>: You mean you can't find the On switch.
    Paris: It's not blinking!

    D.A.R.E to not puff leola: @Nerys Myk
    [​IMG]
    TORRES: So then, Neelix gave me the ground Leola root....
    CHAKOTAY: I think I see my spirit animal...


    continuity award: @Herbert
    Jonas: Gah! I think I found O'Brien's missing spider

    Simple yet satisfying @Herbert
    Paris: Those lights are blinking out of sequence.
    Janeway: <offscreen> I see.
    Paris: What should we do?
    Janeway: <offscreen> Make them blink in sequence.

    And now she'll break your neck award, @2takesfrakes
    "B'Elanna, do you remember that time you went into Pon Farr?"

    Photoshop award: AC2T
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    In plain sight award. I mean he said "bridge"...oy... : @JirinPanthosa
    JONAS: La la la, just wandering around on the Bridge, minding my business. Definitely no treason going on here.

    Tuvok dreams of visiting Stonehenge...

    ...Tuvok is then threatened by an old foe in some other show...

    [​IMG]
    ...the Doctor blows his whistle, Tuvok wakes up, and then goes to fight some Klingons...

    Janeway: "Listen, I know you just socked it to the Klingons, but must you play your favorite music video all over the ship as a victory dance?"
    Sulu: "So it's rubbing you the wrong way? Oh my!"

    Mistress Janeway: "Report, Mr. Paris."

    Tom: "It appears to be some kind of unusual nebula."

    Mistress Janeway: "How so?"

    Tom: "It's all blue and has unusual properties."

    Mistress Janeway: "Explain."

    Tom: "Well, there appears to be universe-creating energy built up into quantum strings that have flagellum and are localized into two circular spheres side beside; like two really big blue balls, waiting to unleash their pent-up energy in an explosive event that will get quantum strings everywhere."

    Mistress Janeway: Her eyes widen and she squirms, "Mr. Paris, set a circular pattern inside the nebula at the highest possible warp we can get, even if it may take us apart."

    Tom: "For how long?"

    Mistress Janeway: "Ooohhh, about one to three minutes," she gets up and walks fast, "And come to my quarters immediately!"

    Tom: "Why?"

    Mistress Janeway: "We're gonna make lizard babies."

    PARIS: Captain, we're approaching a nebula. It's a very unusual one, that has properties we've never seen before. Should I take us in?
    JANEWAY: Nah. Let's go around it. We'll probably end up either pissing off or accidentally killing some energy life form.
    PARIS: ...Crap, I'm in the mirror universe, aren't I?

    MULGREW: Stop bragging that you were in the better Trek. Your character barely did anything!

    JANEWAY: "You're not such a hotshot, so you drove Kirk around for a few years, big deal! I solved the Amelia Earhart mystery!"

    SULU: "Phhhhhhfffft! I conspired against Starfleet, assaulted a security officer and destroyed his workstation, then I piloted a Starship I helped steal out of spacedock against the explicit orders of the commander of Starfleet, helmed said stolen starship to Genesis in violation of Federation policy where it was blown up. Then I took part in a botched rescue attempt and was brainwashed by a Vulcan fanatic. After all that ... they made me captain of the newest ship!"

    :) Depends on the image and underlying problems. In Photoshop, with 3rd party tools like Topaz ReMask 5 to make masking less of a chore, simpler edits take 2~15 minutes to do. I tried something bigger with Sulu's head and Sheldon, but after an hour I decided to swear and use cheats because I wasn't able (or was too lazy) to find a similar camera angle of the same area to get at the bridge set to put in place of where I wanted sheldon's head to pop out but that bit of set is in the background that isn't easy to manually recreate with Photoshop's tools. The text bubble helped hide big problems I didn't have the time to blend in... but copying and pasting existing scaffold, rotating, flipping, using dodge, burn, and smudge, etc, to blend took forever and it still didn't look sufficient for use (regardless if I overlooked a few mistakes or not).

    Even then, such as Tuvok in front of his quarters' window facing outer space, the masking tool isn't perfect with a ton of fringing so I have to manually go in and erase all of it carefully. And then I look for darker backgrounds if I can't remove the fringing fully (ReMask is good but on darker colors the fringing becomes a problem as it can't tell where one object ends and the other begins), since lighter backgrounds would reveal the fringing. Tightening up on the mask controls to refine the edging also helps save time. Or I'll take the lowest layer and do a manual lasso select with slight feathering to get around fringing (e.g. Tuvok's hair). There was once an image of Riker, Geordi, and Data on the briefing room where I put in the Doctor's TARDIS and galaxy (7th Doctor opening credits). I didn't realize I overdid the masking and removed Riker's shoulder in the process and of the three characters, he was on the right, but not so close to the edge that he'd be overlooked. Yet that's the one I screwed up on. Fringing on all the briefing room windows was a HUGE chore so I gave up on trying to use the roller coaster POV shot... the Dr Who credits were far better anyway, even without Riker's shoulder... :eek: :D

    I should download the HD version of that scene once I find the episode and redo it with screencaps from a McCoy story (in PAL, 625 line for the extra vertical resoluition) and then use the remade image as my wallpaper... on the image above, I remember spending almost 5 minutes carefully removing haloing from around Data. It's not perfect but comes close...
