Are we talking about this…? I am. It’s not the same Celestia! The new “Celestia” confides to Starshot that Heidi Erstweiler did perish, but she’s been replaced! And the new one has a husband! And is pregnant! She does maintain the fiction that she’s the same Heidi as before, “resurrected”, when addressing the villains, however. Or… maybe what she told Starshot is the fiction? Or, both accounts are true, sort of? Impossible to know for sure, but I’m probably overthinking it. Man, going into combat with the Iron Drone and Sister Fate while pregnant is *bold*. I cringed through half… Read more »

Great comments & thoughts Doctor! I was thrilled (in a geeky way) when Celestia said ‘multiverse’, with my fan-boy head on I’ve always thought that all the different NGC continuities were part of a ‘bigger picture’; you’ve got the main arc that’s run through all the seasons, the championship, the non canon stories (which I’ve always liked to think came from alternative realities), plus the alternative timeline in ‘Bluebird 2020/Play Dead Broken Wings’. Add in the Fail Safe Sisters and there’s a lot of timelines that the 7D can harvest from, which may explain where the Mayor of lock down… Read more »

Darn, meant to say as well; I don’t think you’re focusing too much on word choice. I think NGC’s scripts are so well written that every word is deliberately chosen.

Oh boy, LOTS to talk about here, but perhaps not yet. I agree with Dr_Mabuse that’s best not to talk about the reveals (yes, reveals plural!); spoilers suck. The big talking about is of course, Celestia. First off, has the actress discovered the fountain of youth because I swear she looks younger here. I like her new costume too. I loved her previous costumes but, and this is in no way a criticism, I always thought they were a bit ‘at odds’ with her character as Celestia is so ‘prim and proper’ it seemed strange that she would run about… Read more »

-light bulb over the head moment-
So when the Mayor talked about his ‘connection to this world’ he was referring to the Drone…fascinating (I hope I’ve got that right!)

And now you’ve raised the bar again with ‘violent vassal’ 🙂

So, a couple of random thoughts: -I got kind of a Skeleton vide from the iron drone/mayor combo (just the way the voice sounded and some of the over-the-topness) and it’s awesome -I wasn’t a fan of Sister Fate when she first debuted, but I found her just oozing with menace here. Great job there. -I love the whole “take a heroine as a hostage” scenario at the end. My favorite one is still from Starshots debut in season 4. -And finally, Celestia’s appearance and subsequent exposition was tremendous and offers so much potential for the future (especially how Celestia… Read more »

To me, ceej’s comment about the “crazy time jump” brings to mind 1990s X-Men, when it seemed like half of the characters were the children of other characters time warped back from some dystopian future. It was bonkers.

I love NGC and i love this realese but is anoying to not see the first punches because the actor is blocking the camera. And is annoying because is so easy to fix!!! Please NGC i know that you have to wrap everything fast because time is money. But try to prep some of this things early. It could improve the videos so much. Just ask yourself ” where is the best angle to see this move?” Maybe some storyboard. I know that maybe you do these things with almost every video because they are so well done but sometimes… Read more »

Of course i liked it! Celestia, starshot. Are you kidding?? Is just like am a fan of stomach punches. Every time i purchase a video i hope to see a couple of those at least. I dont have problem if it happens or if its not. I know that each fan is looking for something different in the same video. What it hurts is when something like this happens. When you have some belly punches but you dont get to see it. And when it happens with your favourite heroine UGGGHH. But i still can enjoy the rest of it.… Read more »

First things first: The Iron Drone’s red sneakers are a good look. My anticipation for this video was high, and I am not disappointed. It’s wall-to-wall combat, with a couple of reversals and peppered with literally world-changing revelations. I don’t want to spill any beans, which makes it impossible to discuss those revelations, but I can discuss the combat part. This one’s very satisfying to anyone who enjoys superheroine action, because in addition to lots of strikes by and against both of our heroines, we also get some cool, imaginative uses of Starshot’s power. Each heroine gets more than one… Read more »

I try to keep my anticipation and expectations in check for upcoming videos, but that effort has utterly failed this week. I was already excited to see Starshot again, but add in Celestia’s return, plus the Catherine Marks extra, and this is the most I’ve looked forward to something here in quite a while. Still, as promising as all that is, I’m probably just as eager for the revelations in the ongoing story! After the last episode, which didn’t seem to advance the story at all IMO, looks like they’re going to make up for that with this episode. I’m… Read more »

I can’t believe I didn’t mention this before (although I was already enthused about several things), but the description says that during this battle “colourful commentary” is provided by “the Mayor of Lockdown City”! What?!? We’ve already watched as Lady Victory was snatched from her Unity City home by agents of the Crown Prince of the 7th Dimension, and now we get another link between the main continuity and the Fail-Safe Sisters! As a FSS superfan, I feel like I dropped the ball by not freaking out about this properly days ago. Of course, the FSS series was conceptually similar… Read more »

Good catch there Dr!
I wonder if we’re looking at ‘infinite earth’ scenario where all of the NGC continuities/realties become merged into one? Or is it the 7th Dimension having a cavort?

So I have a few thoughts: 1) We know that Filth killed Celestia or at the very least attempted to anyway. 2) We know that the Dominator played witness to that death and actually had a hand in it. 3) We know that the masked man and his allies learned of that death and told Miss Freedom 4) We know that the Light Superiors hunted Filth down and killed him thus actually avenging Celestia’s “murder” 5) We know that Dominator knows this very fact about Filth’s death 6) We know that Dominator is claiming that she killed Celestia thus goading… Read more »

I wonder if the Dominator (and perhaps other members of the 7th Dimension) know that Celestia is still alive? In the Dominator’s blog it says that she isn’t entirely trusted due to her change of allegiance and given that the 7th D can ‘resurrect’ people (like Alaric and, perhaps, Comet Girl) The Dominator might well have seen Celestia killed and have no reason to think she’s anything other than dead.
It wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility for Celestia’s appearance to be shock for everyone….

I’m counting the hours to us finding out! 🙂

Awesome that Celestia is coming back. She, along with Athena, are the best of the classic roster (and my personal faves). At least 50% of my dreams have come true…

Can we avoid posting personal information about actresses on forums. I know we all love them but we’re only a couple steps removed from borderline stalking and harassment at this point. And given that NGC has already stated that some actresses received unwanted attention which caused some to quite and others to consider it, it would be ashamed if we lost actresses because some of us (not all) are a little too devoted.

And besides; I personally would like actresses to stay with NGC for decades if at all possible.

Do you think we could be seeing even more Celestia in the future? or is this sort of a special one off? just being nosey here 🙂

Whoever decided on the skirt deserves a round of applause (and possibly a large drink or two!) 🙂

They deserve a glass of mud! Take that skirt off! Celestia hot and the more that covers her hotness the worse!

I think we’ll find it’s more like a tunic. I would have preferred a skirt but I’ll take anything that adds more femininity to the combatants.

I am reserving judgment on the “wrap” or “tunic” or whatever it is, although I’m inclined to like it. First, skirts are nice. Second, I love a little asymmetry in heroines’ costumes, and this one looks to have that.

Starshot, Celestia, Sister Fate, and Iron Drone AND Catherine Marks?
The sum of the angles of that rectangle is almost too brilliant to contemplate!

All right! Wow, fantastic… awesome… just… wow!

This would be a huge deal for me if it was just the first appearance of Starshot in the ongoing story, but featuring Celestia’s return to continuity as well? That’s… that’s… wow!

And the members gift? Wow! More Catherine Marks! Again, this would be exciting news by itself.

The return of Celestia is some of the best news to hit the HIP world in the last year. It’s been a while since I’ve had this level of anticipation for a release. Glad you could make this happen, NGC. You guys are the best!
