Prelude to Doomsday by thefirstfleet Prelude to Doomsday by thefirstfleet
I re-did my USS Constellation and I wanted to do something classic with it. I tried to copy the classic screencap from The Doomsday Machine







Models by me

Glad I found this, and enjoyed this opening shot and was always wild to see another ship like Enterprise that fell and fell hard.

Yeah, it gave this feeling for the first time, that even the mighty Enterprise is just a small speck in the universe.

And what a success you had. It's nice to see the Constellation looking like a starship (albeit a heavily busted-up one) and not a model kit!

You do singularly amazing work, mate.

:music:BA-dump BA-dump BA-dump BA-dump:music:! Such a simple theme. Yet there was absolutely NO doubt that something bad was coming your way. And the soft muted trumpets for the Constellation properly bemoaned the sad fate of a once proud vessel.

Yes :)
I one of the throwbacks,  who thinks this ep is the exception to the "looks better with new effects" meme.  I think the old ones are just fine,  the characters and sound drive this one.  And it nails everything.  Spock.  Kirk is KIRK.  Decker,  not just a nutcase,  he probably more of a starship captain than Janeway ever was.  And Scotty :D  
Kirk:  "If I only had some phasers..."
Scott:  "Phasers? You got 'em.  I had one bank recharged!"  :D
THIS is what a legendary engineer looks like
