Absolutely amazing job, was looking for a wallpaper based on this exact scene! Although I have to admit I was a bit disappointed you didn't title it: "Two-dimensional thinking", to add to the NerdGasm-factor.
I don't know. I really like how JJ pulled of the reactor-room scene. I mean, yeah he directly quoted TWoK, but I think that was the point. The point is, it did what it was supposed to do. It made people cry. Myself included.
Beautiful render of some truly glorious nostalgia. The Wrath of Khan was one of those sci-fi epics that dared to be timeless, and it succeeded beyond most people's expectations at the time. It's amazing there's never been another Trek movie quite like it. Maybe First Contact comes close...very close, although many fans do prefer the Next Gen crew over TOS.
Let's hope the new Star Trek 2 coming in 2013 lives up to the legacy of the original.
Sometimes you have to venture into the heart of darkness in order to find the light on the other side. I like to think of it in terms of Dante's Inferno and how he went down into the bowels of hell before rising up to Heaven.
Ahhh---I can offer some enlightenment here for you. (Navy Veteran here)
The term "Mister" is gender neutral when addressing a Naval command officer on duty, particularly on the bridge of a ship. It is considered to be very respectful and professional. Not all women like it, and many chose to ignore the convention, but it is a proper practice. Being called "Mister" is an earned privilege regardless of your gender.
Similarly--if you are the commanding officer of a ship you are called "Captain" even if your earned rank is less. if say Commander Spock were given permanent command of the Enterprise, he would be addressed as Captain Spock; yet if he held the same rank/pay-grade and was a teacher at the academy he would be addressed as Cdr. Spock.
