Very cool! I really dig seeing these pages without the dialogue yet. When we
don't have the words, it accentuates how much is conveyed in the facial
expressions. It's like watching a movie with the sound turned down, which
I've been told is great way to grasp the visual "language" of a movie.

That's Sarah April, isn't it?

Thanks for sharing with us!

I love the panel layout and the use of the black gutters.  Your recent ST work has gotten me to rent all of the TOS on DVD.  I really hope you continue to explore this universe!

April's Enterprise in all her glory! Yeah, baby!

And I, too, think that is indeed Mrs. April. Had a feeling that Boyce's appearance in CREW # 1 was more of a fun cameo than a flaunting of TAS-canon.

I like the idea of a Captain having a romance with his chief surgeon. Lots of interesting story possibilities there. There's enough K/S material out there, though. We don't need Kirk/McCoy stories!

While I don't feel particularly married to TAS, I see no real reason to
specifically contradict it either, if staying canonical serves the needs of my
story.

In the end, tho I slip in bits and pieces from other episodes, and even other
iterations of TREK, what guides me in CREW is "The Menagerie".

"April's Enterprise in all her glory!"

She should still have that "new ship" smell, no?

Curiously enough, there is a reference to something like that in the script!

+++++++++

As it should be.

Also, if that is indeed Mrs. April, you once again prove your ability to make a cartoon character "real". Looks great.

I like the idea of a Captain having a romance with his chief surgeon.



Funnily enough, when TOS went off the air, I started writing short stories
about my own starship, in my own universe.* In the first draft of the first
story I set up a romance between the Captain and his Chief Medical Officer,
but I ended up rewriting the story and eliminating that element.

(And this was in Ye Olde Days, working on a typewriter, when "rewriting"
meant retyping the whole story!)

I wrote about a dozen such tales, each about 25 pages long. One of them I
was considering recycling for CREW, but decided against it.


*Almost 20 years before the fact, my ship's configuration had much in
common with the Battlestar Galactica!

They kind of flirted with that Captain-CMO romance thing on TNG, and I
have to wonder, knowing how fond he was of recycling ideas, if Roddenberry
hadn't had that particular animated episode in mind, even on a
subconscious level. Of course, if it was David Gerrold who added that
element to the story, then it's even more likely that the Robert/Sarah April
thing was the inspiration for the Picard/Crusher tension.

One thing I have to say -- I am grateful to Roddenberry et al for
constantly tweaking and tinkering. Kirk's Enterprise was quite different
from Pike's, and that gives me a lot of leeway in drawing April's!
