Based on the fact that the ship is far behind the 3000 meter wide cube, that'd be a 500-600 meter long Falcon!

One biiig wookie must be at the controls!
Imagine the shuttlecraft-sized dice hanging in the cockpit!

No one ever said that Star Trek and Star Wars were to scale of each other.

I actually read that there were some other "easter eggs" of that sort in the movie other than the MF as well...however I refuse to believe. [Cool]

When Picard is attempting to deactivate the magnetic interlocks on the deflector, the screen briefly flashes "AE-35 Unit", which was the faulty dish on Discovery in "2001."

And the Borg eyepieces are flashing the names of the major cast and crew in Morse Code throughout the movie.

I'm sure there's other stuff as well.

John Knoll also put what looks like the Ralph MacQuarrie Phase Two Enterprise Study Model (The ugly Star Destroyer-ish one) flying back and forth across the window when Queen Amidala's telling Palpatine that she will be returning to Naboo in The Phantom Menace.

Do you have those images from the link you posted anywhere? If it's the same ones then that will prove them to be fake. Because I know this guy Ares, and he said he made the screencaps himself after the topic was brought up over at SCN. And I couldn't find any such pics on the net.

It's posted in the Treknology section at SCN if you don't believe me. I'm not playing any trick. And if he is he's sure got a roundabout way of doing it.

There's also a seperate unrelated quote from an Easter Egg site saying that John Knoll did do that. Now, it's not an interview with the man himself, but he does little in jokes like this all the time in all of the movies he works on.

Unfortunately, I do not...but when you posted them, they looked familiar.

It's not that I doubt what your saying, but this guy just doesn't strike me as the prankster type. And if it is, what's the payoff? It's not even April Fools, like you said. [Wink]

He might've been fooled, too.

Well, I don't know what it is. Maybe the Falcon is in there somewhere. Can anyone make new caps, to see if it is?

Blast, can't figure out how to edit my post. On the one hand, it looks like a blurry Steamrunner. On the other hand, I can see the Falcon
