5. Go to their page and inform them they were tagged
6. You have to legitimately tag 10 people (I'm doing this in a separate journal entry)
7. If you can't make the rule up as you go along, then what's the point?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Let's start with some healthy self-promotion -- What is your favorite picture (by you, of course) in your gallery?

I really cannot pick just one. Tongue Smiley  My group crew portraits come to mind as the process in making them complicated enough it's a wonder they turn out as good as they do.  My individual crews/characters because I just love making characters.  The starship ones I've chosen because friends have commented on them, and I get a kick when I do a picture of a starship they haven't been that keen on, but the like it in my picture. Of course, my character Amy and Robyn, I love this two because they have evolved from what I initially though of them, into characters in their own right, with in a sense their own lives.

2. Since turnabout is fair play, now what is your favorite picture by me from my gallery?

How can I pick just one from :iconmylochka:'s locker, Heart  love her Seven of Nine, Helen Noel and I love how she can take an alien race from Star Trek that I dismissed as a cheesey allegory and make me go...'oh, well actually they are kinda cool'.(I'll be adding more thumbnails to this when I got a chance)

3. In the original run of Star Trek, there was no grand final episode to celebrate the end of the run.  If you were create a special last episode for Kirk and crew, what plot elements would you include in your script? Reading

A Romulan fleet has been in unknown space for years, it has been going around the Federation hiding in uncharted territory - the plan to launch a surprise attack on the other side of Federation space, away from the Romulan Neutral Zone.  The Enterprise happens to be deep space exploring and comes across this fleet, they can't take them on by themselves, so without being discovered by the Romulans they have to head back toward Federation Space to warn them.  The Romulans discover the Enterprise and pursue, damaging it, the Enterprise seeks refuge in a system with a dilithium mining station.  Echoing his negotiations with the miners in "Mudd's Women", Kirk has to convince these miners that the Romulans are on their way and persuade them to out-fit their ships with weapons and join the Enterprise in a stand against the Romulans.

Earlier Kirk and Spock should have a disagreement, one that is not resolved and later they are separated from each-other and their is a cliffhanger as to if they will ever see each-other again. Yes, fuel for the Spirk slashers, but there you go.

Enterprise is damaged in Romulan attack, miners come through...Kirk and Spock re-unite with a hug and disagreement resolved.  Enterprise's damage prompts her return to Earth for TMP refit.


4. Pretend that studio executives have decided that there should be a new Star Trek series and have picked you to come up with ideas for a pilot episode.  What idea for a new series would you pitch?:funnydance: 

I really don't think Studio Executives deserve to hear my pitches.  Plus, I've kinda stopped thinking of Star Trek in terms of 'a TV show'.... It. Is. REAL!!!! I created it...and it is REAL!!!  I'm an Institutionalised Fanboy.  Just make Star Trek: Outpost exactly as it is in the radio-drama, but as an animated show like Star Wars The Clone Wars.

5. How do you feel about the J.J. Abrams Trek movies? Facepalm

I feel they just don't offer anything new or fresh to Star Trek. Stringing together a bunch of scenes ripped-off from other movies and adding a bunch of quotes/references from various Star Trek films/episodes is NOT film-making or storytelling.  The first film was a mess that was boring and insulting to the mass audience, let alone the fandom. The second film was simply the writers giving the finger to everyone who pointed out all their mistakes from the first one.  So I'm just marking time until the rest of the fandom buys a clue.

6. If the events of "Where no Man Has Gone Before" had not happened, how would the presence of Gary Mitchell have changed the relationship between Kirk and Spock? :monkeyinthemiddle:

I think there would be more conflict between Mitchell and Spock, not the playful banter that Spock and McCoy enjoy, but a real clash of personality between the two, with Kirk caught in the middle.

7. Back to art -- Imagine some aspiring young artist is picking up Poser or DAZ Studio for the first time.  What advice would you give him or her? :sneakpoke:

Keep plugin' away at it. Don't give up. There is nothing like having an outlet for you creative ideas, it's rare that a day goes by and I don't have Daz Studio open for something.

8. If you could magically develop one new artistic ability (such as suddenly being able to sculpt perfect likenesses of cats or something equally useful) what gift would you wish for? 5 seconds hug

The ability to ask the girl at work, whom I have a crush on, out on a date, without scaring her or being rejected...there is a real art to that.

9. What's up with these kids today? I mean, sheesh, back in my day....OMFG pointing

 ...you couldn't just put an (i) infront of something and instantly make it look cool.  Toys were real toys and not a flat slab of tech that could be mistaken for a place mat at the dinner table.  If you were out and you wanted to make a phone call, you needed to find a big red box and remember the number of the person you wanted to call...

10. To best please my watchers, what sort of render should I do next? Green ladies? Blue ladies? Helen Noel looking cute? Sulu in a Volvo station wagon with a Boston Terrier wearing Spock ears? Poke!!  :poke: V2 :fastpoke: v2

Mylochka is really tempting me with 'Helen Noel looking cute',  however I would like her to do a completely new 'original crew in the Star Trek universe', because you can never have enough fan-made starship crews populating the Trekiverse(s).  Any era she likes, but no establish in TV show ship or characters (with the exception of a favourite character crossover). I want portraits, groups shots, ships shots, adventure shots, posters, fan fictions....I want the works.

My Questions & tags to follow...oh Cliffhanger! :pokeback:

Thanks for playing!  Great answers. :)
Lovely selection of favorite picture from you and me.  Glad you chose several.  Who says there only has to be one?  It's not like this is Highlander...
 I love your Last TOS episode idea -- Want to see it! Having the Romulans as the Big Threat always opens up the opportunity for some soul-searching and conflict for Spock because of the relationship between the Romulans and the Vulcans.  I like that your plot lets us see ol' JTK having to use his wits to persuade.  That's when I like him the best. 
My new series idea is an animated series too.  I want "The Captain Sulu Show" in full and glorious high quality 3d animation.
I feel your pain on the Abramstrek.  They're flashy and pretty but so short on substance.  They really don't stand up to a second viewing while by contrast forty some years later I'm still watching episodes like "Balance of Terror" and enjoying aspects that I'd missed on previous viewings.
Yeah, that's the Gary Mitchell thing that intrigues me.  I think it would be a much more intense situation.  Eventually, one of them would have to go... Probably wouldn't have made for as good of a series, but would be great for some Alternate Universe stories, I think...
Good luck with your girl!  Yes, romance is a skill, an art, and a bit of a crap shoot... Sometimes I'm amazed that any of us ever manage to get together at all...

Hey Mylochka,

My pleasure. :D

Well, we've both done so many pictures now, it's really tough to narrow down faves. :D

They (the Fandom) tend to portrait Kirk as this action hero most of the time, but really when we look back at the series, it's his diplomatic skills and cunning that get him out of situation, more often than not. :)

The Captain Sulu Series was a no-brainer to me and it was a complete travesty that it was never made except on audio, comics and a game.

Yeah, after spending several months on the official 2009 forum bashing the movie and pointing out the flaw (whole thing), and getting back just lame defends like 'it's made Star Trek cool again' and there's me watching TOS and Enterprise, thinking; 'it was cool in the 60s, it was cool in the late 90s early 00s, what's the problem', and I'd watch TOS and all the stuff that I was moaning about that was missing from 2009, was so completely evident. :facepalm:

Gary does strike me as a disposable character, though I think some pre-Where No Man stuff would be interesting. Gary getting jealous  as Kirk draws closer to Spock...it's so Slashy I know, but those Spirk boys and girls kinda have a point. ;P

Thanks, this one kinda sneaked up on me, wasn't really aware I had a crush and then blam!  A few weeks back the penny dropped! :cheerup:
