I wish Enterprise had been set on a Daedalus-class. I know, I know, some people despise the ship design. But I think it’s brilliant and would have been great to see in action…
I’m ambivalent about the Daedalus design, but I still also wish “Enterprise” had been on a Daedalus-type just to be true to the established history. Of course, “Enterprise” takes place before the Federation, before the Daedalus, but it would have been more true to Trek to have it be some sort of proto-Daedalus or proto-Enterprise design, rather than the proto-Akira claptrap they went with.
(The producers actually wanted the exact Akira design for “Enterprise”, with no alterations whatsoever! Fortunately others (maybe Drexler?) convinced them to allow for a “retrograding” of the design to make it appear somewhat older and clunkier. Phew.)
While I agree that it would have been more Trek history authentic, (I also have a respect for the Daedalus class), I’m glad they went with the design they did for the NX-01. In “Beneath the Raptor’s Wing” and “To Brave the Storm” novels they discuss the Daedalus and NX class ships in detail and why the Romulan war pushed the production of the Daedalus design but how the NX was a superior chassis. I like the Daedalus in general but have a hard time finding the ship aesthetically appealing. Does anyone know if Sisko may have served on one or what relationship he has with the ship? There’s a model in his office…
No, Sisko never served on a Daedalus ship. All the Daedalus class ships had been retired by the time he entered the academy.Source: startrekships
Hello all, so this is my dad, and he’s planning on cosplaying as Rescue Captain America at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
Here’s the problem: He’s 53 and he thinks he might be too old to cosplay. In addition, he thinks he’s not buff/handsome enough to pull it off a Captain America costume. So even though he’s put a ton of work into his cosplay, he’s thinking about not taking any of it with us.
I’ve set out to prove him wrong, so tumblr, please help me show this retired Air Force officer that he makes a great Captain America!
Your dad is awesome and cosplay is for everyone!
He’d make an awesome Cap! Go for it Daddio!
He makes an awesome Cap!! I’d take a pic with him if I could go this year!

Astrophysicists have discovered why high-power X-ray light is so often detected around black holes, when its gravity apparently prevents light from escaping . Their research revealed that gas being sucked into a black hole passes through a region 2,000 times hotter than the Sun and is heated up so much that it’s inevitable for high-power X-rays to be released.
