Happy Monday Gif-day!

USS Enterprise NCC-1701 D enters Starbase 74

(Since the D is twice as long as Kirk’s Enterprise, this economical re-use of the mattes from Star Trek III, with the D the same size relative to the doors as the A, means that Starbase 74 is approx. 2 times the length, width and height, thus 8 times the volume as Spacedock… (Some like to think Starbase 74 is the same size as Spacedock, and the D is simply entering a different set of larger doors. But one can clearly see in the second shot the doors are the same size as in ST III)).
