Another ship I’ve been meaning to build for some time, though this one changed drastically in design every time I thought about it. It certainly does have a lot more behind the cockpit than in front, and doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but it will.
When I was in the sixth grade I was in a play that was a horrible combination of a Star Trek parody and something about basketball I never really understood. I can’t remember if I lobbied to get the part that I did or if it was just assigned to me but I was “Spock”. I already loved Star Trek at that point and put everything I had into playing the Spock parody. It was a silly play acted by sixth graders and I’m sure my portrayal was awful, but it gave me an odd connection to Spock that I always looked back on with fondness. For those of you who don’t know, Leonard Nimoy passed away this week. If you’re finding out here you must have been at some secluded camp or something, I don’t know. Mr. Nimoy was a brilliant actor and seems to have been an insightful and wonderful man. He will be missed by the scifi community. To me he was the inspiration for TAG, but he has been the inspiration for so many and I’m sure will be for years to come. Live Long and Prosper.
