Time for something a little more simple. This is the tactical scan screen from Star Trek V - seen as the shuttlecraft (now hijacked) returns from Nimbus III, while Enterprise is being stalked by a Klingon Bird of Prey. Also seen towards the end, as the Bird of Prey approached again, but nobody noticed (if I were Kirk, I'd be thinking "what do we pay you for?", but there is no money in the 23rd century)

This is a very long flash, spanning the entire series of events.

-scan starts
-ship detected
-classification determined
-ship approaches
-cloaking device engaged and ship disappears

lol yeah, thats me trying to pay too much attention to detail (in this case, the real passage of time) that it screws the whole thing up.

Fast foward please.

Yeah, I know - I wish I remembered how to do programs in flash, that way I'd have something you could click to advance it to the next part.

I used to know how, but over the years I just kinda forgot, lol

So it really took 7 minutes to reach the klingon ship.

more like they detected the Klingon ship approaching 7 minutes before it got within firing range.

I screencap'd parts of Star Trek V to make this one, and there is one point in which the display does say 7 minutes to intercept - so I incorporated that here.

Ideally though, if one used a graphic for some Trek project/fanfilm/etc - I would make a bunch of shorter ones, scene specific - But, of course, I cannot upload 5 of the same flash (on different parts) to DeviantART, which is why I made this one long one.

But yeah... I should have made a better example, much shorter

Yeah, you don't see a starship for 6 hours before finally reaching their destination at warp, do you?
Reply

At warp? Nah, it'd get there much faster than six hours.

Well... Spock did detect the ship 1.9 hours before it was in weapons range, though that was a much different looking display. I would love to make that one too... but that would require some 3D, which I do not have (either program or skills).

So... if he knew it was a Klingon Bird of Prey... why did this screen have such a hard time determining that, mere minutes from intercept? Oh well, there were a lot of things about Star Trek V that didn't make sense.

Sorry, no star trek 5...but st producers alway cut the actual time it takes for the ship to get there. For example, within a span of max one min on your tv, the ship actually should reach there in 7 mins. Not making sense am I?

Sure. Just like how in the span of one movie, the Enterprise could go from Earth, to the Neutral Zone, to the Center of the Galaxy, and back. .... yeeeeah.

But then, we dont wanna sit through the decades of travel time that should have taken
