So why the name Saratoga? I have never had a chance to confirm my theory, but if I am right, it shows some definite historical savvy on the part of Glen Morgan and James Wong.
As many know, the USS Enterprise from Star Trek was named primarily for the USS Enterprise CV-6, the most decorated vessel in United States Naval History with 20 Battle Stars and the Royal Navy Admiralty Pennant to her record.
But what few people, save for the true historians out there, remember is that of the seven fleet aircraft carriers the United States Navy had before World War II, only three survived to see the end of it.
The USS Ranger CV-4 was in the Atlantic, deemed unfit for the rigors of duty in the Pacific.
USS Enterprise CV-6 survived some of the most brutal combat from the early perilous days following Pearl Harbor to VJ day.
The last pre-war carrier to survive? USS Saratoga CV-3.
Considering that Space: Above and Beyond made it very clear it was linking itself allegorically with the Pacific Campaign in World War II, both in tone and prosecution, having the Saratoga name was a very nice touch, one that avoided the sticky-issue of having another spaceship named Enterprise on TV.

Well here it is... my first piece of fanart I made in years. But Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince sparks so much on my fantasy I just have to illustrate various scenes. Especially if I look at DA and what is being made on the subject so far... few artist come close as to how I see it in my mind, so I want desperately show my personal version of events as well.
This little early scene is just too funny not to visualise. As you might notice, what I depicted is not the desperate last visit of Fudge deep in the night, but an earlier call. Perhaps even the first meeting of the two. Tell me what you think!
These 4 layers have been done for a while. My only hesitation to upload this is because it does not yet have a frame to showcase it - and the frame is going to be a pain in the ass! Needs to have proper lighting to remove shadows, needs to hold the 4 layers together but not obscure the lighting, etc... But I'm exploring a few different plexyglass options now instead of ignoring it lol. My fingers crossed that I can be done with this soon.
On the fourth hour of Halloween, my ghoul love gave to me...
...someone who was about to get one heck of a make over!
Now, during Halloween, while you should preferably dress as something scary and spooky, that's not always true. In some cases, you simply dress outside the normal and pretend to be someone you normally wouldn't be.
Raven is about to find out just what one of her uncommon forms is as she steps onto one of Manci's Trick Circles.
Go give a big thanks to when this sequence is over for commissioning what will be a fun piece. ^^
