I'd have preferred the D-7 to be on about Green 35 rather than Red 35:-

There's Klingons on the Starboard bow,
Starboard bow, Starboard bow,
There's Klingons on the Starboard bow,
Scrape them off Jim!!

Kinda of a weird title. Somehow I love the angel of the action scene.

Acid test means the test of pure gold: you put acid on the stuff, and if the acid cannot dissolve it, it is the real deal.

April was originally portrayed by Roddenberry, his face edited unto a screenshot of (I think) Pike.

He was supposed to have a role in Axanar,  but that was talk from a long time back,  the script may have changed by now

Incorrect.

Robert April was originally voiced by actor James Doohan (Scotty) in the TAS episode "The Counter-Clock Incident," and you'll find proper images of both the young (30s) and old (75) April in that episode.  That picture was a bad Okuda photoshop that was done for the original edition of his book The Star Trek Chronology: The History of the Future, aka the "Okuda timeline."

Um...
Not talking about past ,  fellas
Talking about present,  and who they planning on perhaps using in Axanar,   which starts shooting principal photography in a couple weeks.  April is the first captain of 1701 ,  and we may see her at some point in the story.  At least it's certainly been teased

If you want technicalities, Admiral Charles Rasmussen was the Very first Commanding Officer during her Shakedown Cruise back when the Enterprise was just designated NX-0002

 "Arm lasers and acceleration tubes".

 "Baptism of Fire" would've been the title I used, but "Acid Test" is probably better, since it is the less likely someone would think of, and yet just as apt!

I'm growing quite fond of this version. The markings on that tall bridge dome sall it to me.

It's the end of the Nacelles for me- the second pilot version is the one we saw in the original through stock footage in the god old days before any half assed remastering, so that version is the one that makes me nostalgic

Not the type of Acid test I saw coming. Remember, not the brown Acid. Nod 

Looks great Dave and I like the darker gray on the D7 there.
