Which starship designs were created for this film? -- Connor Cabal 16:09, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
I removed an erronous reference in the entry which claimed that designs for the film appeared on the cover of Starlog #2. That magazine featured no such cover. I also revised the entry to eliminate speculation, clarified notes on the production based on interviews for Philip Kaufman and material from the book The Art of Ralph McQuarrie, which discusses Planet of Titans and attributes the design of the Enterprise for that film to Ken Adam.DS9Sega
Removed text Edit
I removed the following text as speculation:
While the actual reasons for Paramount abandoning the project are unknown, most likely it is because the executives didn't like either Bryant and Allen's or Kaufman's scripts. Some speculate that the studio thought moviegoers had had their fill of science fiction after Star Wars became a huge box office hit, but that the subsequent success of Close Encounters of the Third Kind altered their thinking: but this is mere speculation without evidence to back it up.
