Normal me: This place seems oddly familiar…
Artistic me: Yeah…like we’ve been here before…
Sports Fanatic me: Are we having collective Deja Vu?
Apathetic me: Who cares?
Nerdy me: Um…this is our blog, remember?
All but Nerdy: Oh! Yeah, right, that. Yeah, got it. Okay.
Nerdy me: *shakes head*
Normal me: Okay, anyway, where were we…oh yes, today’s post, first in a while. Sorry about that. Been rather busy. Anyway, today, we’re going to look at some publicity posters developed for Star Trek: Avenger, were it to ever actually be produced.
Artistic me: We’ll start with the standard posters. These ones are the ones you’d see around series launch time. Typical, somewhat conservative posters.
Nerdy me: First one, the starship showcase shot. Try saying that five times fast.
Nerdy me: After that, we have the minimalistic ones. James couldn’t decide what he preferred to do, so he made a few different versions:
Apathetic me: If anyone cares, the fonts are Vandiana Platin and Eras Light ITC. At any rate, if James ever forgets again, here it is as a reminder for him.
Normal me: Now what kind of a post would this be if we didn’t show you the horrors of previous attempts?
Apathetic me: A much better one, that’s what kind of post it would be.
Normal me: Shut up, no one cares what you think.
Apathetic me: I know, why do you think I’m always apathetic?
Normal me: We’ll discuss the psychology later, now back to the subject at hand.
Artistic me: Yeah, here are some of the old old posters…
Artistic me: It’s been over three years since James made this, now. Can you tell? Ugh. Furthermore…
About two and a half years since James made this one. For those familiar with his work, you may notice this was back in the Mark I Avenger days. Oh, that old mesh…it brings back some memories.
Normal me: Anyway, sorry for that horror show. As recompense, we’d like to leave you with some more pleasant images.Very modern in styling compared to those hack jobs.
Nerdy me: They’re not very “Star Trek,” at least in my opinion, harumph.
Apathetic me: Get off your soap box and deal. It’d appeal to the masses.
Nerdy me: Oh like you ever care about appealing to the masses, you wannabe hipster elitist.
Sports Fanatic me: Ooh, fight?
Normal me: No, this isn’t hockey. Settle down, kids.
Artistic me: Thank you. Now, as we were saying.
Artistic me: In Season 2, the Avenger would be stuck in the Mirror Universe, trying to get back. They’re being pursued at all times and, when they get the chance, they have a bit of fun being belligerent toward their Mirror counterparts, just to tick them off. It works especially well with the captain’s counterpart, who then makes it a personal goal to eliminate our good captain. Anyway, because of the sometimes fun, sometimes rebellious, sometimes devious attitudes taken by the crew, James decided to go with a grunge theme for one of the posters.
Artistic me: This one fits better with the Season 4 or 5 attitude. They’re in the midst of a war, and the fun is all gone. Things are much more serious, especially while they’re on the losing side. Anyway, that’s all for now. There may be more in the works later.
Normal me: And that ends this installment of “A Conversation With Myself.” Hope to see you back soon. TTFN.
