Day 217 - Lt. Commander Montgomery Scott – Chief Engineer USS Enterprise NCC-1701 (Kelvin Timeline)

I do have to say that as much as I appreciate the location shoot rather than green-screening the Engineering section in Star Trek 2009, it’s very hard not to see brewery (or a factory of some sort).

I’m not sure why they that would pass.  I find Uhura’s hallway workstation particularly hard to swallow.  I mean it’s all minor issues in the grand scheme of things but it’s one of my few criticisms.

I wasn’t a huge Spaced fan so I don’t quite have the geek adoration for Simon Pegg as some do but I do like him as Scotty, I think he captures the spirit of the character well.  

I also respect Pegg for speaking out about the infantilism that geek culture cultivates at times and whilst I understand why people thought he was biting the hand that feeds him I ask you to consider what he’s saying and then watch the film Moon followed immediately by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (both released in the same month).  Considering one was an international blockbuster and the other barely got a release I can sympathise with his thoughts.

Original Star Trek 365 illustrations are available to purchase and are posted at 8:00 am Brisbane QLD Australia time.
