That photo (in Reply #27) does have accurate lighting, showing the way a full-scale Starship Andromeda would be illuminated out in interstellar space--*v-e-r-y* dimly!

On my monitor, I almost can't even see the Andromeda model against the background--it has about the same contrast as a black cat in front of a pile of coal on a Moonless night.

Oh, OK. On mine it is dark but still clearly visible in detail.

No problem. Mine (a CRT unit) does have some "burn-in" because a friend gave it to me used (and it works fine otherwise)--"Don't look a gift monitor in the flyback transformer." :-)
