With half of Australia on fire and the heat soaring I just can’t bring myself to draw another snow scene LOL.
As my aircon is reasonably old and even when first installed were placed in the wrong parts of the house to be effective I’m strategically moving from room to room and doing my best to avoid bursting into flames.
So I thought for the TOS one we might visit the unnamed world that fights the Gorn on and appears to be on the warm side and deliver some Christmas cheer instead of a chest full of diamonds and a flying double leg kick.
I know everyone’s favourite character isn’t there but I honestly had to balance the piece and so I could just jam everyone in there – so three from Discovery and three from Enterprise and one rogue element 🙂
It’s that time of year again where I visit all the Star Trek series and get into the Trekmas spirit.
I’ve done this four years running now so it’s a bit of a tradition for me in December. This year I add another show to the group with the upcoming Picard series.
Colin over on Patreon highlighted concerns about Porthos’ poor little paws in the snow and now he has Enterprise issue dog boots. I figured if I was going to take the NX-01 crew ice skating then I may as well bring their favourite Andorian along who would of course be in his element!
I know I’m not supposed to like Roland but it’s really hard not to.
He’s got several cool lines (and one awesome cut scene) and there is a level of complexity about him which is intreaging despite the whole great white hunter routine.
Like yesterday’s piece I find myself wondering and speculating on the motivation. Why he drugged the T-Rex instead of killing it as he originally intended. Surely he had other bullets he could have loaded into that rifle? But he’s made the decision to capture rather than kill which has opened the gates for InGen to try and recoup the expedition. Something I can’t imagine Roland caring all that much about.
To be honest I think you can turn the film off here. The whole ship set up is so unbelievably executed it is frankly mind-boggling that a director of Spielberg’s caliber would mess it up so completely.
It’s such a disappointing ending.
I may, however do one last scribble from The Lost World, but it won’t mean I approve of the scene!
I really love the long grass scene though it makes very little sense why they would run out into the long grass know what’s in there. Particularly RJ who warns them continuously not to go into the long grass yet follows them anyway.
He also throws his backpack off which our heroes later find and use to call for help. did he know he was about to die? Was he leaving the bag for Roland or the others to find in the hope they might be saved?
I should really pop the audio commentary on to see if that’s explained or not.
I think the scene shot from above showing the raptors approaching the group is fantastic, almost shark like and so I had to scribble the attack!
