Do you find having to do a TOS-TMP transition a hindrance, or are you having fun with it?

••

This series was my idea. Even as I pitched it, I knew it would be set in a transitional time period, but I did not see that as a problem. Heck, there will even be a few shots, albeit small ones, of the chopped and channeled Enterprise in this series. If I can draw that, I can draw anything!

(Well, maybe not the Sta-Puft version from the most recent movie!)

Just draw the "real" Enterprise, then stretch and distort it in PhotoShop. That way you don't have to draw it!

The more I think about this project, the more I want to see what sort of logo you come up with.

Kirk and Spock are all over the place, and with this series you apparently throw the spotlight on the member of the one member of the "Big Three" who doesn't often get it.  If this project sells well enough to justify followups, I'd love to see you do one for Scotty.

Heck, I'd even like to see you maybe do a miniseries with each issue focused on one of the secondary characters.  Sulu, Chekov and Uhura should be good for an issue each.  A two-parter for each of them with a cool cliffhanger would probably be fun, too.

I guess what all this amounts to is "PLEASE KEEP DOING TOS COMICS!"

JB,

What do you mean "chopped and channeled"?

It's a custom car term. Here's a standard 1954 Chevrolet…

…and here's one that's been chopped and channeled…

Missed this thread. The McCoy stuff looks great. Very cool idea for a mini-series.

At least the movie Enterprise looks great, unlike the car in the second pic!

I must respectfully disagree.

One of the reasons I took to referring to the movie version as "chopped and channeled" is that the redesign shows the same kind of sensibilities that are to be found in hot rodding -- ie, the focus in is making it look cool, rather than practical.  As I have noted many a time before, there was something about the original Enterprise that broughtt a kind of verisimilitude to the whole thing.  The design couldn't really work, but it looked like it could.  It was solid and blocky and strong.  The "refit", in contrast, looks (to my eyes anyway) overworked and delicate.  Even frail!  (Some of the people who have worked on the movies have complained that the ship, from some angles, looks like a duck -- and it does, but that is not a fault to be found in the original design.)

Somewhere along the way, both in terms of design sensibilities and stories, the people in charge of TREK forgot about being military.

Typified in Next Gen where the Enterprise is chock full of families!

With a bridge that looked like the lobby of a Holiday Inn!

Also -- seriously now -- can we really imagine a military organization that would opt for fitting out its uniforms with padded shoulders?
