I was sure someone had already said that in this thread, so I went back and looked. Not only did someone already say it, but it was you!

That's good shit actually. I got a Pulsar Kinetic for my birthday, and a friend of mine has had his self-winding watch for forty years, still haven't failed him. It was one of the first ones, they started making them in -55.

He's solar!!! When's the last time you saw him running in the dark?

Oh wait.. whenever someone calls red alert, they shut out the lights now. Bad for him.

Off the topic, is anyone else pissed by the fact that in all post-DS9 Star Trek productions, the call for red alert is accompanied by shutting off the lights on the ship and using only red illumination? does this make sense either way? you see your console better but its difficult to make out the borg drone across the deck? Actually the bridge in ST 1-3 had extremely dark normal bridge lighting, which i found even more annoying. They spend a lot of money on sets we can barely make out and actors we cant really see that well. Although some actors thats a plus? ok, peace out

Having just recently watched The Motion Picture, the Enterprise's bridge had the same process of dropping the light level at the onset of red alert. As she approached the V'Ger cloud, the ship goes to red alert. The bridge lights are dark, red lights are flashing, and the main viewer is flashing the alert screen. After everyone runs onto the bridge and takes their stations, Kirk orders, "Normal illumination, Engineer." Then the lights go back on.

I do recall that now..
Of course when they walked on the bridge in "Wrath of Khan" it was dark as hell, i remember the best light was on Shatner (it seems he had a spot over him while he stood at the turbolift being offered a tranquilizer by McCoy)

Generations angered me the most when the Enterprise D, our bright and happy child-carrying flagship was completely dark (on the bridge, alert or not) in the corridor outside the holodeck, ten forward, and the quarters. the only time i could appreciate it was in scene with windows because the amargosa star gave everything an awesome sunset look
