Blow me away by thefirstfleet Blow me away by thefirstfleet
Inspired by TWOK (obviously, duh) and the epic song Blow me away from Breaking Benjamin

Fire your guns
Its time to run
Blow me away
I will stay unless I may
After the fall
We'll shake it off
Show me the way






Models by me

One of the most well known Halo songs in existence, and most people probably don't even know Breaking Benjamin MADE it for Halo.

I haven't played the game, but I like that song.

Did you know a hit from a mega-phaser has energy equivalent to 2 atomic blasts?

Just a suggestion. I know its not canon, but it really gives it some depth: Try and make some representation of the phaser beam in your scene. it may be a line-shaped light or an actual glowing and illuminating beam object. If the starships are just slightly showing that there is an effect nearby, it really makes it look much more real and much less like the post-process addition that it is. You sort of did it with the explosion after all, why not stick with the idea?

I see what you mean: the phaser beam illuminating the ship!

ID would have been good if it wasn't a TWOK remake. Why couldn't the villain really be John Harrison, a new, original enemy, a rogue S31 Agent... so much better...

The moment when Reliant started shooting, we didn't see both ships in screen together, did we? The viewpoint cut from Reliant's port-side phaser blasting, to a shot of the side of Enterprise, with the phaser beams smashing into the engine section.

 

This gives me an excuse (like I need one) to go watch the film again. For maybe the 1,000,561st time.

Well, it came as a surprise for me when I finally got to see a photograph of the 1701 filming model under normal lighting. Based on Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock, I thought the ship was coloured blue!

My only critique of this image is that the Reliant looks like it is too close for that firing angle to work without going through the saucer of the Enterprise... From what I remember of TWOK the Enterprise was rolling away from the Reliant when it was hit there and that rollin/turning motion opened up the "accessibility" of that part of the hull

I have to admit, I used only screencaps, not the real video, for reference.
