Or that the extensively refit and heavily modified 1701 was the "Movie" enterprise for Star Trek 1-3? They rebadged some other ship as 1701-A after Kirk & Co. saved the Earth in STIV. It's like nobody actually watched the damn movies.

Or that it doesn't really stick fiddling matter because it all comes down to an artist's taste?


I read somewhere the model maker for the Trek movies hated the refit design and was glad to blow it up in STIII, only to be disappointed they continued with it.

There was a bar here in town that had colored, halogen spotlights aimed in all the toilets. It made peeing rather beautiful.

I mean there's a flying sheet of ice spinning around right in front of your car. Maybe you slow down and change lanes?

i count maybe four seconds

subtract a couple of seconds to assess the situation and you’re not left with a lot of time to react

that of course assumes the driver sees what the dash cam sees

I've lived in and driven in both the Los Angeles metro and the DC metro.

Believe me. I could find a way to move right.

Speed up and swerve into the lane in front of the car to the right.

They had fallen back a bit, and at the point when the ice hits they may not have even been next to the leftmost car at all. They didn't seem to be going the same speed as the cars in the left lane, so I don't think they would have been even. There's also a good chance that they would have seen the ice sheet, too. They would have almost definitely fallen back or swerved to the next lane(which was likely empty).

Or, alternatively, if the car had actually been going faster than the cars in the left lane, I would have hit my brakes. I know that people in this discussion don't think there was enough time, but I am already like a frayed nerve, and I notice things quickly. Having driven in these two areas has made me even more on-edge and aware of my surroundings than I would have been, and I expect that I would have been aware of the ice sheet very quickly(and possibly tipped off by things sliding around the roof of the vehicle ahead when it was driving, or tipped off by a very large amount of snow thereon).

Knowing that there's a flying sheet of ice coming toward me, I think four seconds would have been enough time to take action to get out of the way in that situation.
