All Things Star Trek

I’ve heard that many people cant get into TOS because it’s “Too corny.”
Hot take incoming…
It’s TGN, for me, that is so corny I can’t take it. It’s full of cheesy corn & soap opera antics. Over the last few years I’ve really come to love TOS. I used to think I hated Trek en mass, but once I finally gave it a real shot, TOS won me over very quickly.
I’ve occasionally dipped into TNG, thinking I must have missed something when it was actually on air. I love Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner & LeVar Burton. But, TNG is just not for me.
I haven’t tried the other shows.

The random <strong>Pics &amp; GIFs</strong> thread for the Original Trilogy

I love that one too! Think the artist used to post here… or maybe it was somewhere else, but I remember him releasing the sketches for this as it was developing.
My only critique is that I feel like Vader’s head is stylized differently than everything else. More animated compared to the realism of the rest.
It’s a fantastic piece. Worthy of more recognition!

TL;DW It doesn’t necessarily contradict anything shown or stated in the movies.

Yep.
I’d actually hate to see that shot too heavily altered. I really love it.
Could totally do without the burp though.
…Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, I’d like to see the frog n’ mouse dropped altogether in favor of some other kind of more subtle motion/action to bring the shot to life.
So, I guess I would like to see the shot altered, but that backdrop is classic.

I just don’t see any of this perceived “pandering”.
The baby isn’t anymore pandering than the one in Lone Wolf & Cub.
It’s cute, sure. But babies are cute. So What?

I certainly don’t see this pulling any punches that Empire would’a thrown.
I don’t think that statement holds any water at all.

Guess I don’t feel that this was to overly badass or cutesy.

Also, totally rad BTS shots!

‘Coventry City launch a kit to celebrate 40 years of 2 Tone.
Absolute Genius.
With the serious message of Kick It Out. Exactly what 2 Tone stands for.’

The half-time music must be great at Coventry City… maybe better than the footy itself 😉
