though the truth may vary, this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore.
This is illogical.”
Captain Sulu enjoys a spot of tea, hot I would presume.
I really want the Excelsior’s cutlery (and the Enterprise’s for that matter) and I really enjoyed how Star Trek 6 let us see some more of the general more mundane aspects of serving aboard a starship. Federation blankets, Enterprise plate sets and of course mashed potato pots!!!
It just shows the attention to detail which I love.
I think, when one has been angry for a very long time, one gets used to it. And it becomes comfortable like…like old leather. And finally… it becomes so familiar that one can’t remember feeling any other way.
In my version of the [Star Trek IV] script, originally, when they all leave to go back, [Gillian Taylor] didn’t leave. She said if anybody’s going to make sure this kind of disaster doesn’t happen again, somebody’s going to have to stay behind, which I still think is the ‘righter’ ending. The end in the movie detracts from the importance of people in the present taking responsibility for the ecology and preventing problems of the future by doing something about them today, rather than catering to the fantasy desires of being able to be transported ahead in time to the near-utopian future society of the Star Trek era.

What do you think? Would it have been “righter” to have Gillian Taylor stay behind at the end of Star Trek IV rather than coming forward in time to take care of the whales?(via trekkiefeminist)
"New with the Voyager that we didn’t have on the Enterprise was a removable shuttle bay door. And inside, Tony Meininger build a wonderful miniature set. [.] So we’ll be able to do shots were the door is there or the door is out. Then we’d have to put an animated wipe to show the door opening like any roll-top garage, which, indeed, it is."
