    Default Intergalactic Photography

    Greetings.

    In the course of our research assignments and journeys dictated by the Vulcan High Command, T'Pol and I sometimes have time to pursue more esoteric interests, such as landscape photography. We'll share our collaborative efforts in this thread. Neither one of us can individually take credit for any specific photo, as it is very much a collective effort.

    These photos will generally come from Minshara-class planets (those resembling your Terra in biological support capabilities) in solar systems similar in configuration to to your Sol system.

    If other warp-capable members wish to contribute, we look forward to it.

    The first photo was taken at a large lake on Procyon-6 (the 6 being the zero-based index of the planet from the star). This is a binary system. The photo was taken in the late Spring shortly after the second sunset, just as the planet's primary satellite approached the planet due to the gravitational pull of Procyon B. We would have taken more photos, but we heard the eerie whistling howls of the wa'gashes in the distance, and had to depart the location quickly.

    Nice photo! Been a while since my last trip away from Sol.

    On a recent visit to Hunjib, a colleague and I stayed at the hilltop lab overlooking the Sarl Canyon. My quarters were near the observation deck. From there, one night, I watched this survey ship. I am quite pleased with the new telephoto attachment for my Vuldak.

    Aesthetically pleasing. How did you manage to get such a clear shot in that thick atmosphere?

    wtf
    damn trekkies

    ps: technically an 'intergalactic picture' 'd just show us the space between galaxies, or the trips by themselves, not planets. But I guess it's an arguable point.

    True, just like with intergalactic travel. You travel between the galaxies, but you don't go to any planets or solar systems inside them, lest you exceed the clear limits of your predefined type of travel.
