AND use Jein registries for the ships in "Ultimate Computer".

I guess it's unavoidable. But at least they won't work a flashback graphic of the Republic into "Court Martial" to show that she would have been a Constitution, too...

I hope.

So TOS is going to come out on HD-DVD? I thought Blue-Ray was where it was at?

The Okudas decide most of the nitty gritty details, so I'd expect to see most of the 'conjecture' in the Encyclopedias become canon. Or revised canon, rather.

So here we have our first Jein registry.

Or at least the first new Constitution registry that goes explicitly against the idea that there are about a dozen ships named consecutively from NCC-1700 upwards. While some of the registry here is obscured, the second digit isn't 7 (although we can still choose whether to think of it as 6 or 8, I guess).

Well, it is 6: the registry no doubt is the Jeinian-Okudaic NCC-1672.

But we can pretend it is 18something if we wish to think that this batch of ships began with NCC-1700 and had at least somewhat systematically registries higher than that. Although a fat lot of help that is, when NCC-1017 is already reconfirmed, and "The Ultimate Computer" looms around the corner.

I'm just hoping it won't look like the NX-01.

Of course, I'm still hoping that it will look significantly older than the Constitution class, so that at least there will be no way in hell that it'll be confused as the class ship for the TNG's U.S.S. Hermes. (And yes, I believe that the Antares being the first of it's class, as mentioned in the Encyclopedia, is just a mistake).

I don't find this surprising at all, considering that Okuda is playing a significant role in the "remastering" process. Even leaving that factor aside, the Jein Constitution registries are invariably to be found in all contemporary licensed source materials, both "fiction" and "non-fiction." This is clearly the "official" stance that they intend to stick by.

i just spent an hour looking at Youtube clips of the FX for DOOMSDAY MACHINE-R... I must admit, it hugely impressed.

[Smile] wow. It also, oddly enough makes me horny...
