Mind you, the question is rendered somewhat moot, as the Blu-Ray
images have the computer generated Enterprise, not the real one.

After skimming some of the galleries, it appears that most of the first
season screencaps come from the HD-DVD set, which had only the
remastered effects. However, the galleries for the other two seasons
all come from the Blu-Rays, and the screencap galleries feature both
sets of effects--original and CG. So, a great many of the original
effects shots are available in the HD galleries, with some of the
composites looking better than others.

A lot of those early first-season composites look pretty rough
compared to later episodes!

Are we looking at the same site, Greg?

There's more than "remastering" going on there!!

Again, as noted, the first season screencaps feature only the Remastered/CG effects, but the second and third season galleries have screencaps of both the new and original effects.

There are a great many effects shots in those later seasons that could be used in a variety of creative ways.

The problem, in this particular instance, is that "Corbomite" has a number of episode-specific effects shots featuring the cube and the Fesarius.

You might be able to "create" some new shots be compositing some generic, original-model, HD shots of the Enterprise with the cube, although said shots wouldn't look like the original posted above.

The "splash page" image I posted up-thread is a composite.

Love the elevator doors. It

This is REALLY interesting to see good "fumetti"! The power of good comics layout is astonishingly clear when it's done right.

++++++++++

That's what makes this so cool!

 

When reading JB's TREK comics, I make a conscious effort to imagine them in the style of TOS--actors' voices, sound effects, etc.

This is kinda weird, because now I'm doing the opposite--reading TOS as if it were a comic!

For fun, I occasionally imagine what theoretical comic adaptations of various favorite movies and TV shows would be like. This little project is really hitting that button!

JB - 
do you have a feel for how many pages this will end up being? 

(Not assuming you will finish, but just as an estimate?)

Just wondering if an episode laid out like this would be roughly comic book length (25-ish pages), or mini-series (125-ish pages).

Not a clue! I suppose I could watch the episode, and clock how many minutes in I am at this point, but that would only be a rough estimate, since the length of a scene on film isn't a really certain indicator of how many panels/pages it would take to adapt into this format.

Coincidentally, I was thinking about this yesterday, wondering if I should finish this exercise just to give myself and idea of how many pages my "lost episode" would need to be.
