Most of Act 3 was done months ago, but I went back and incorporated an exciting new Star Trek subplot now that I own all of the available QMx 1:6 scale figures from The Original Series. Those aftermarket puppets cost me a whopping $2,269 for Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, and Sulu — plus their 1:6 Captain’s Chair for $109. QMx was supposed to produce Chekhov but they never released it. No Uhura either, but I did find a special edition Barbie version of her that works for $135.

I say Uhura “works” because in the POSERS universe, it becomes apparent that there are different species of POSERS. The Phicens, the Hot Toys, the Barbies, and a few other brands — all in various stages of evolution. Look for that to become part of the story eventually.

On September 23, 2021 I received three 3D printed 1:6 scale Star Trek chairs from a fellow Trekkie in Glasgow, Scotland. They’ll look fantastic in my USS Enterprise bridge scene. They shipped via Royal Mail and arrived here in Portland faster than the USPS can get something here from San Diego. Dunno how that’s possible, given Customs and all.
