WIP Concept Design
Hello people. Ive been lurking here for quite some time and admiring all the discussion going on. You have some good stuff going.

Now to the point. First off, I have no clue where this thread is supposed to be put:confused:, so Im making it here and hopefully a Mod can move it to where its actually supposed to go >.>

I am a scifi fan and, to some small degree, both engineer and artist having had many classes in both realms. This added to being brought up on TNG on as well as classics like Babylon5, SG1 on, and Firefly got me into the ship designing mood. Now I have tried this a few times to work out the bigger, stronger, badder most new people have:rolleyes:; but that feeling never went entirely away. So I came up with a concept ship that goes something along the following. If this is the right place, I can add a pic or 3 later on.

What I need from this community is help.:)
I have come up with the major design, interior and exterior, but lack the modelling program/skills to make it look good.:klingon: Failing that, an Okudagram or blueprints of some form would be nice... or at least a program to help me make them.:techman:

Well, most longtime lurkers figure out that the artists hang out in the fan art forum. As for modelling your ship, have you tried Sketchup from Google? it's free and has a pretty easy learning curve.

Re: WIP Concept Design
Thanks, saw the art section and I dont know why I didnt make this there...
I'd actually like to entertain any questions you guys have for me about this ship to better flesh it out more. [should I move this? how?]

Im also hoping to eventually come up with some sort of plot/storyline and "recruit" some willing posters to participate in a sort of pseudo-story. I tried something similar on memory-beta or -gamma and it went well.

I think you'll get a lot of help in the Fan Art forum - I'll move it over there.

Welcome to the board and good luck!! :)
