I'd love to have your thoughts!

Could a Mod please delete the above post? I had to remove it because no matter how much I edited it, the HTML code I had used in trying to explain the YouTube linking messed everything up.

Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this ship! I came across it on the Concept Ships blog a while back, before I signed up here, but didn't know who designed her. Great job! Any chance we can see a set of high-res orthos of this beauty?

That's some bangin' Mass Effect music! :lol:

It's actually Two Steps From Hell, isn't it? But I always associate it with ME.

Anyway, looks really... interesting. Takes some getting used to, but I approve.

Glad you like her :) Oodles of extra material here, including orthos: http://crossovercomic.com/index.php?...nus&folder=big

Like I'm sure I probably summed up before, I'm not exactly a huge fan of your design. There are things that I like about her, but there are also some things that I just don't find aesthetically appealing. Composition/quality/rendering wise though, a good job was done, but she isn't going to earn a spot as one of my favorite designs.

The prologue for CrossOver sounds pretty interesting though. Does the story behind the Masters have any basis in an actual legend?

Now that I think about it though, if a ship went missing, would a search not be made (not unlike how the Enterprise was sent to find the Columbia in the original pilot)? It also seems very clear that either spacecraft managed to survive the crash, or the survivors (or the descendants of the survivors) managed to build their own craft, so am I to assume that the craft carried on board aren't FTL capable, or capable of sending a distress call to the nearest outpost, nor did no-one on board who could engineer an FTL drive or a sub-space communication equipment with enough range survived?

The design of the ship doesn't look like any Federation vessels I've seen (in fact, it looks more like a flying city, not unlike Atlantis), so I'm guessing this is not set in the Star Trek universe.

I'm trying to imply that we get many of our historical legends from stories about this world, but that the distinction between it and Earth was lost long ago.

A search was likely attempted, but proved fruitless. The sun is a "rogue" star, and as such does not appear on any maps.

The ship was demolished in the crash, and the survivors lost a good deal of technical knowledge in the following generations.

A powerfully charged magnetosphere prevents ascent beyond a certain altitude.

Quite correct. It's a colony ship, specifically a penal colony ship, though I didn't want to get into that with the prologue. I also didn't mention that humans are not the only race the Masters brought here. Other "aliens" live below ground or along the border.

This is all subject to revision, so if you see any holes please let me know. I'm trying to nail down a final draft of the script by the end of the year so I can start story boarding...

You mean like a rogue black hole, that doesn't stay in one place like most stars, but meanders throughout space? That could be a disaster waiting to happen. It's going to one hell of day if the star collides with another star, or encounters a rouge black hole. Not to mention rouge comets. Probably safer from gamma ray bursts though.

If I see any holes or inconsistencies, I'll be sure to sure to say something. Inconsistencies are one of those banes of any series, which is best avoided as possible.

So true. Don't know if your down for a 40 page read, but the current version of the script is here: http://crossovercomic.com/media/extr...lay_v0018b.txt

Me neither, but thanks in case I decide to give it a go.:)

Always looking for feedback :) The story is admittedly a tad convoluted at present. Mostly looking for ways to imply exposition rather than saying it outright, and most importantly add a human element with characters people can relate to. Also humor. I don't have near enough humor.

Thanks! Those are some pretty images you have there. I applaud you for taking the design in the direction you did... it's fresh and unique, yet totally Starfleet.

Remove the spaces in the bits between the brackets in the above line. Also, don't try to edit a post that you've used the above on. The bbs software will eat the embed.

Cool, that's what I was going for :) Took me a while to think of a configuration I hadn't seen before. I think I'd have had a better chance in the competition if I'd gone with something more traditional, but in retrospect I think I'm happier having made something unique.
