I was sitting here thinking I haven't posted anything relevant here for a while, so let's see... what to say:
Q) Is the Federation a parody of The Federation from 'Star Trek'?
A) No, and yes. In actuality, they are an homage
to the Federation from 'Star Trek' in that they are a grouping of planets joined for common gain. That's about where the similarity ends. The Federation as depicted in Starship Moonhawk
and The ADventures of Milea
is an organization bent on pacification at any cost. They aren't inherently evil, per se, but their methods for attaining peace in their little corner of the galaxy might upset our sensibilities on the subject.
Q) Is it just me, or does Admiral Cobalt look just like Johnathan Frakes from Star Trek: TNG?
A) Yes, and actually, I threw this question in as a joke.
Q) How big is the Starship Moonhawk?
A) My official statement on the subject is that the Moonhawk
is approximately 12,500 feet, or just over 2 1/2 miles long. On a side note, Rachael Harrison, the pilot officer, jogs the length of the ship and back from bow to stern in two circuits every day. She almost never uses the ship's gymnasium.
That's it for now. Watch this space for more interesting stuff about the series!
