Wow, it's been almost 40 years since I've seen that show. Did it really look that "Star Trek"? Or was that just how space ships were expected to look back then?

Part of that image shows a conversion to TOS-style tech (something the main page on the bid said wasn't part of the kit). I did a little searching and found this page that has a shot of the ship from the series:

I think the ship has more of a Gerry Anderson feel to it than it does anything from Trek, to be honest.

Sheesh. It's hard to believe we used to have 45 page long threads that went on for eighteen months.

Don't worry about necro posting. I've never agreed with the prohibitions against reviving old topics. Revive away!

I had just about the same thought. :)

I was also dismayed that all of the imageshack links seem to not work anymore. And they say the internet is forever!

yeah, that is one insideous lie !!!
(can't seem to spell scurolous or insideous )
it's been my experience that things seem to last about three years on the internet
unless they have been subjected to extra-ordinary measures :)

That rule seems to vary from forum to forum.

I also post in another forum that currently has 7,203 pages in it's main forum and close to 100 users visiting at any given time, and their rule is the exact opposite. You're expected to search existing threads for a particular topic you have in mind to make sure it hasn't already been discussed/answered, and revive that thread if you have something to add, related questions, etc. If you start a new thread, in short order a Moderator or another member will quickly post links to where it was already discussed.

To me that makes more sense and keeps things better organized.

Just to clarify, when I said "exact opposite", I meant opposite sites like the BBS, not this one. I didn't word that so well.

I think the rules against necroposting are more of a post-TNG / Roddenberry’s twin engine rules. While this is more of a modular FJD kind of thing.

Well, I TRIED to keep it on topic. :)
