Re: "Polaris"

Winging it right now - the rigging on this shouldn't be complex in any event. It's a deliberately simple, mechanical design - we ain't doing Na'vi here.

Hang on, so why exactly did I have to strip naked and be painted blue? I feel violated now.

Re: "Polaris"

Hey, that's pretty slick. Guess I'd better include a docking bay for those things. You given any thought to how many they would have on board?

I was going to post some big updates on the Polaris this weekend but I went to boot up my workstation at home last night and it crashed on startup. Not sure what's going on yet, maybe some bad memory or a graphics card failure, but it will have to be fixed before I can make any further progress.

In the mean time, I do have a couple of new renderings from last week:




This is part of the FTL drive system. I detailed all the internal guts for two reasons: First, because some of it is visible around the edges of the sphere even with the access panels closed; second, because the objects surrounding the sphere relate to a specific plot point in the script. Dennis, you may recognize these as "Nielsen generators."

A few more images will be available in the Fan Art thread as soon as I get them posted.

Well, in a Popular Mechanics sort of way, I suppose.

Whatever works for you.

Seriously, though, loving the craftsmanship here.

Marvelous.

I hope that within the next two to three months we'll be able to put something from the movie online that will include this ship.
