I don't see the problem, there's no gravity, no areodynamic problems..

Well here I was referring to the use of the movie Enterprise marked with both NCC-1701 and NCC-1701-A.

As for the manuevering I keep saying it's not that I find it impossible. Just frenetic and unnecessary for the ships to be shown moving like that. Since this is supposed to be in the style of TOS. The ship was never shown like that in TOS.

Best analogy is in Revenge of the Sith where Dooku... This 70+ year old Sith Draws his sabre and thanks to the miracle of CGI he somersaults into battle with more energy than we saw in Luke in Return of the Jedi. Even though it is possible in both instances it looks a little out of place and is there not because it needed to be but because someone is trying to show off their effects.

It's a minor quibble but again Cawley and Co. apparently agree that it looked odd because in later episodes the Big E behaves much more like she did in TOS.

I am sure Cawley was just showing off his SFX in that one.

Well I am forgiving on boo boos with a fan project.

As am I. It was a great story and frankly seeing William Windom was fantastic! The actors playing Pike and DeSalle were also stand outs. It was a kick to see Kargh in Starfleet Uniform and a shame that particular wrinkle in history had to change.

I haven't seen a New Voyages/Phase II webisode I didn't like, or convert to DVD to watch.

Yes, Phase II is great. I really liked the last ep when Kirk and the Enterprise Destroy 3 Romulan Crusiers. Awesome.

I've been really liking the Starship Exeter Web Series, as well. Their last episode has been pretty good so far. Again, like phase II we'd of course faster eps. But i don't rush quality trek. Take your time.

Also, Farragut has been pretty good. They just need to work on their acting.

Starship Farragut is pretty good too! They are even doing a "TAS Style" webisode.

World Enough And Time is my favorite TOS episode as far as I'm concerned and I can't wait for BaF.
