There's loads of weird stuff you'll find on the Alice server...one of these days I need to clean it up.

*I think* William Shatner came to visit what was then Stage3 Research and probably also the Entertainment Technology Center. Not sure of the reason for his visit. Could have been to give a talk or collaborate on a project. I honestly don't remember.

Is it just me, or is Kirk getting bigger each year? (Just kidding)

I didn't think it was possible to recreate the bridge of the Enterprise with alice.... that's a huge feat in my book. If anyone has the file, I would like to see it myself.... unless if it has to do with those bulky VR helmets!

Default William Shatner/Star Trek Bridge in Alice - 11-03-2006, 02:13 PM

Just a few points of clarification:

Yes, we did create a version of the original Star Trek series Enterprise bridge, and William Shatner "stepped inside" it via Virtual Reality headset when visiting Carnegie Mellon University. Here is a screenshot:

starTrekBridge.jpg

Shatner was at CMU researching a book he co-authored with Chip Walter entitled "I'm Working on That: A Trek From Science Fiction to Science Fact," a book about what the sci-fi series predicted, and what has really happened since then, in the science behind that science fiction.

On a personal note, having been a huge Star Trek fan as a kid, I was very honored by this visit. It's cool when you get to meet your boyhood idol; it's even cooler when it happens because he comes to visit *you*!

..........WHOOOOAAAA...... that was made with alice?!

.................That's the sort of thing that brings a tear to my eye... .... and yet, I now wonder: If the original Enterprise bridge can be made, what about the Enterprise-E?

This one for those who don't know the letters...
