…how many issues is this mini-series?

••

Three. Quite accidentally, my Romulans "saga" has paced out 1, 2, 3.

Which is why I chose it for Old One's (Or, more correctly, Middle Age One's)
ship.

+++++++++++

I MUST be off my meds or something.

I noticed the resemblance to One at some subconscious level when that first cover was posted, but I cannot friggin' believe that I didn't make the connection.

Too cool.

Several sources have suggested the NCC-1701-A was another ship renamed, mostly by way of explaining how it could get built so fast. Now, me, I really have no problem with the idea that in the 23rd Century we should possess the technology to be able to throw a starship together in the time it takes to press a couple of buttons -- but others seem to think otherwise, and so we have the Yorktown "explanation".

+++++++++

We don't even know how much time passed between the trial at the end of IV and the epilogue.

The only reasons people use the "Yorktown" explanation are the seemingly short time it took to build a new ship after the trial, and the ship's seemingly early retirement in ST VI. Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise says it was a newly-built ship that was renamed Enterprise before it was presented to our heroes.

Sure, it took 18 months to redesign and revise the Enterprise for TMP, but we never get any info as to how long it takes to build a ship from scratch based on an established design.

Also, the treatment of the "A" in ST V--where it's depicted as something of a just-purchased-lemon--plus the references to it being "new", indicate a brand-new ship.

The idea that the A is a new ship that just happened to be ready in time to be named "Enterprise" certainly fits with some of the details -- especially if she went out without a shakedown cruise.

Which movie has the "20 years old" reference? I can see the scene in my mind, I just can place it in context.

SEARCH FOR SPOCK. When the Fleet Admiral (Morrow, I believe) is telling
Kirk the Enterprise is being mothballed.

JB, in Star Trek III: "The Search for Spock," when asked by
Kirk about taking the Enterprise back to Genesis, Adm.
Morrow says, "Jim, the Enterprise is 20 years old. We feel
her day is over."

Kirk meets with crew and tells them, "The word is, 'no.' I
am therefore going anyway."

Damn. I love peeks like this.

I love the reflections in the last panel. That is one shiny floor.

Well, it's done! Finished the third issue today.   Now all I have to do is the 10 page "feebie" for the trade paperback, and my "Romulans Saga" will be complete!

Well done JB!  By my calculations it took 14 days or so to finish.  That is impressive. 

I can't wait to read this series (plus the Angel special).

So about 2 pages a day that is quick work.  Were you really feeling it this issue or was it more of a need to get it done kind of thing (since you are working on Angel and I am sure other projects)?
