Re: Fringe

John Noble is awesome. He is one of those actors that it seems like we should know him for far more many roles than merely Walter from Fringe and Denethor from The Two Towers! I agree. I looked up his work on Wikipedia and was surprised by how, comparatively, little he has been in. It looks as thou...

Re: Is there a "missing" Gene Roddenberry series?

Coincidentally in the right moment I am watching for the first time EFC and Andromeda. Enjoying both. EFC I am at the third season and Andromeda around the middle of the first. EFC just finished its run on the UK Freeview "Horror" channel (for some reason they class all sci-fi as Horror, ...

Re: Is there a "missing" Gene Roddenberry series?

You're right of course. In my brain Andromeda came before E:FC, but it's the reverse that is correct I keep thinking the same. Not sure why. It could be that Andromeda was more widely shown on tv over here (unless you had cable/satellite). EFC season 1 was shown on the regular channels but they nev...

Re: "Sacred Scale" Star Destroyer - well nearly

Amazing. Why am I not surprised! I presume that the Zvesda and Revell are the same kit? I know that they have swapped products before. Can't understand why this is a limited edition though. I would imagine there is a major market for a 2 foot long Star Destroyer. I had a look at some of the close up...

Is there a "missing" Gene Roddenberry series?

A few years ago I can clearly recall reading about plans to make tv shows based on two different concepts from Gene Roddenberry. One of these was Andromeda starring Kevin (Hercules) Sorbo which had a five season run and is being discussed in another thread. The other was linked to Bruce Boxleitner i...

Re: To Light or Not To Light - That is the question

2. the scale I build is 1:2500 and 1:1000. As far as I am concerned, someone who can manage to put lighting in a 1:2500 Enterprise-A is a master builder! I don't consider those sizes worth my time lighting. I can't recall if Johnny Lightning ever released a "cloaked Enterprise A" ie a tra...

The nest question is who will do a blockade runner to go in the docking bay and a tiny Millennium Falcon to hide on the rear of the bridge tower.....

"Sacred Scale" Star Destroyer - well nearly

At the risk or incurring the wrath of the gods of Star Trek by mentioning Star Wars at AST, I thought I would flag an alert that Revell have released a 1/2700 scale kit of the Star Destroyer https://www.revell.de/en/products/star-wars/star-wars-episode-iv-vi/id/06052.html I've seen prices ranging be...

Re: To Light or Not To Light - That is the question

is the amount of satisfaction one experiences after completing a smaller model greater than or less than when one completes a larger build? More or less when it is lighted or not? Or are they the same? My focus in nearly all subjects is small scale. So for Trek its 1/2500 (although I do have a numb...

Re: Andromeda

Yep season 5 was like a completely different show and the weirdness really began at the end of Season 4 where Dylan Hunt appears to meet himself in a long dark corridor. That was a real WTF! moment.... There is a "play" written by the show's developer, Robert Hewitt Wolf that can be found ...
