Okay! I hope you all enjoyed the first episode of Federation Star Defense! As I mentioned last week, we'll be taking the next month to get a head start on Episode 2. (Final scripting, set building, photos, and a finished comic buffer.) We will return at the beginning of December. See you then!
(In the meantime, I also have an installment of Planescape, my drawn comic, to finish. Off I go!
Oh... on one other subject, if anyone knows of any great Lego-sized LED lights (battery powered), that would be awesome. They'll be for interior lighting on the Intrepid, so the windows can be lit from within when it's photographed. I did a little on that this episode, because I stuck a flashlight inside, but it was a little too bright and focused (and
also too big for anywhere but one spot).

patience is a virtue:
Wow @Brickvoid, patient little bugger aren't you...

That is the current plan, yes. I will let you all know if anything changes!

Have not taken photos with them yet, but I think they will do pretty good!

"Do it" a good Capt's phrase, even better than "make it so" but I still like "Let's get it ON!" ;)

I remember there being some joke about Picard or some other crew memeber appearing to say "Worf speed", instead of "Warp speed". ST:TNG was well thought out! :D

@Pyradonis Yeah... that did occur to me when I wrote it, lol. But I thought it would be an amusing play on Picard's thing and that won out.

I use that technique a lot, BrickVoid. But nothing beats a practical effect! I'm pretty sure I can get compact lights that small. I was just wondering if any Lego afficionadoes in the audience had something to recommend :)

"Make it go!" - haha, I'm sorry, but it makes me think of the Pakleds. :D

It might be easier to just photoshop the lighting in. Unless there's some special effect you want it to convey, a decent image editor should be able to do a fairly good lighting job.
