The Excelsior had an even harder time trying to get through the neutral zone than the Enterprise did.

For a few days, it's been so cold on my side of the planet, that it seemed like I was on Rura Penthe.
*shakes off cold chill*

Getting here as well. It's -8 degrees Celsius now, and -17 is inbound.

Was surprised the Klingons had such little border defense and internal patrols considering how militarized they are...

Remember too this is post-Praxus and so now the Klingon military's hurtin' BADLY for resources prolly, the Klingon military's probably never been weaker, but in the graciousness of the Federation they decided 'No, we're not going to attack them while they are down like this.  That would be most dishonorable and we've NEVER win them over then.  No, we're gonna use this opportunity to hopefully truly show them we can be the best allies they've ever had if they'd just stop with the paranoia.' xD

Althoguh I'm more a militaristic than a pacifist type (no liberal crap for/from me), Starfleet did the right thing. The Klingons would have went full Kamikaze on the Federation's ass, going down in a blaze of glory. If thez had to die, they'd take the Federation with them, 300 style. Although the war would have resulted in the annihillation of the Klingon race, it would have also left the Federation in ruins, easy prey for the Romulans or the then-upstart Cardassians.

I always imagined Rura Penthe as looking a little like Kessel. Potato-shaped. Barely massive enough to hold an atmosphere.

The Klingon judge *did* after all call it the 'Penal Asteroid'.

There needs to be more movie VI fanart out there... it's nice to see this one! :) I use Rura Penthe as a joke so often whenever I'm being sent or dragged somewhere I don't want to go.... :XD: Do you have a favorite Star Trek movie out of the original six, BTW?

Those are great choices! :) I really like TUC too. My #1 favorite would have to be TVH, but TUC isn't far behind. :aww:

I'm going to have to re-watch the film now, just because I saw this render.;)

 

Maybe the funniest part of the story (for me) happens as Enterprise is entering Klingon space... and the crew is trying to bluff it out with the border station staff. As Uhura is stumbling through outdated Klingon, the station staff are obviously wondering just how drunk they are. "Are we hearing this right??"

:iconthefirstfleet:
thefirstfleet Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
I found it offensive that Uhura doesn't speak Klingon alone. Okay, she's probably not perfect, as she is not a native speaker (fuck you Noam Chomsky :D ) but... old printed books? Struggling with simple words? Come on!

Actually asteroids can be spherical if they are large enough, Ceres for example. They probably couldn't retain a thick atmosphere though due to low gravity.
