Thanks much, guys!

Actually, the open back is for module attachment/hitching. It also extends if needed, adding length extension sections to the bed, attaching at the point of the dark seam.

And, horatio, I have to disagree with you about John, eh. Aside from the fact that he is a very good buddy of mine, objectively I think his designs are brilliant, esp. the stuff that was not seen on Trek. John had to come up with like a bazillion versions of ships over and over (no idea how he did that), but ultimately B&B would pick stuff that went with there sensibilities and likes, so it all sorta followed their curvy take on vision.

I have seen some of John design's that never made it pasted B&B that are so cool and unique, yet didn't “fit” with what B&B wanted. John the real deal, IMO, and then some.

Thanks again, my friends!

day of the dove...

Or as the ol' Vulcan proverb goes; Only Nixon could go to China.

Inspired by the TOS episode: Day of the Dove and a fav rare cruisin' side-by-side scene in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Pss.

Here's a pic that me wife sneak-snapped (no as pics allowed) of me getting me SOTL spread signed by The Shatner. He was pretty cool, and said “Oh really? Very nice.” when I told him that was my artwork for SOTL. I also mentioned that I built all the ships for his myouterspace.com website, and he said, “Is that so? Good for you.” Nice words from, me Cap't me Cap't.

BTW, that “red shirt” I'm wearing says “EXPENDABLE” across the chest in the classic TOS font, of which Patrick Stewart's son, Daniel, upon reading it, was kind enough to empathically tell me; “You do know, you are not expendable.” He seemed kinda kindly-serious about it too, not sure if he was in on the fun of the shirt. But I assured him I knew I wasn't and we had a nice chat about “The Inner Light,” me fav TNG episode. Very sweet guy, as were all the Trek peeps. And OMG, Brent Spiner is frakin' hilarious! He could do stand-up no prob and C and I told him we'd be there if he ever did. He's a complete unbridled zany goof-ball and super sincere (even though he (comically) claims not to have a single sincere bone in his body), and super laid-back and approachable. I love all those qualities in a person. John de Lancie was quite the card and super nice, too. And Avery Brooks, what a purely loving spiritual guy! He was so moving and encouraging in all he had to say. He looked a little thin and a tad shaky though, and kinda mentioned in passing twice he was “Just trying to stay alive.” So not sure if he is going through something right now in regard to physical health. If he is, my prayers are with him.

And OMG, this one guy in this classic Godzilla suit, AWESOME! (I'm a huge Godzilla geek though). I included a pic of that guy as well.

I just had this wild idea: Could you recreate all exterior scenes from the new movie and cut them together so that in essence... you know, the movie would be the same, only with "our" good old TOS ship? Just imagine how it would be, I think it would be amazing!
