Unofficial art challenge for DS9! (SPOILERS FOR TP: RAISE THE DAWN!)
 
Seriously, DO NOT READ this unless you a) have read Typhon Pact: Raise The Dawn, or b) just don't give a crap.

(and forgive me if this has been done already in another thread!)

I'd like to kick off an unofficial art challenge for:



Come on, you art people - show us what you can come up with!

I'ma kick this off by posting mine! I originally put this in the Trek Lit forum, but there didn't seem to be much interest in an art contest there.

You have to click the post spoiler smiley and type in a title for the spoiler to get the code.

The very nature of this thread kinda kills the usefulness of any spoiler code. At least the thread title has "SPOILERS" in it, so if you don't want to see spoilers for Raise the Dawn, you shouldn't come in here!

As for your contribution, Mojomoe, it does look cool. I imagine that the shape of the station and its features is more an aesthetic choice to echo the original rather than functional. After all, I doubt this thing has anything to do with mining. Not sure what the gigantic glowy bits are for, though.

I don't have it in front of me, but the description in the books does mention the idea of the circles like that, so it does have some similarity to the short description as well :)

I hated the cover of the book showing the new DS9 being that ugly station from the SOTL calander.

I think this would make a great DS9 station.

To be fair, that's stated by the authors in the know to be the station FOR the station.

i.e., that hideous blemish on the cover is the construction yard, not the new station, which has yet to be designed.

I'd love to have specs on the "construction shacks", though.

It says Spoilers right in the thread title. Why would things need spoiler code inside of it? If you don't want spoilers the thread title should've been enough to deter you.

I've read the books, I wasn't complaining for my sakes. I just think that it would be a decent thing to do.

The thread title should have said "Open Spoilers", not to get nitpicky.

Okay, I have to confess I'm tempted to take a crack at this, though probably no more than a rough sketch or two. Unfortunately, I haven't read the novels in question or any other Trek novels in several years. Anybody care to repost any relevant descriptive information about what the new station is supposed to look like? Also, who is actually building it? The Federation? The Bajorans? I assume not the Cardassians.
