The TOS-TAS era remains my favorite, for many and detailed reasons that I won't go into here So I thought I'd share some of my ship image creations from the last few years. Thanks for viewing!


A Federation dilithium freighter controls two robotic drone freighters in a convoy.








I'll probably upload more later. Keep an eye for updates
All of your work is top notch, but the two above are outstanding!

Re: In Praise of TOS-TAS Imagery (Ships)

Both Arcas-Art (under a not-too-clever pseudonym) and wmconnors mysteriously appearing on TrekBBS at the same time? Suspicious... Is this some kind of attempted shadow coup d'etat by Deviant and "preverted" Artists?

Nice work in both threads! You did artwork for Traveller? Did you do any for FASA?
I did a little bit with them, but not that much. I had a bunch of work in their ST:TNG Officer's Manual, like:

Hi, Rob. Welcome to the BBS.

I've been a fan of your art since Traveller. You even sold me a copy of the MegaTraveller Referee Kit over one of the USENet (or maybe FidoNET, don't remember which) echoes, and threw in an original piece of art, which I'm not sure I've ever thanked you for.
HA! Y'know, I vaguely remember that! What art did I send? And I bet it was via GEnie... at least that'd be my guess?

Seems like you've kept track of my CV fairly well!

Thanks again, folks. I should note - it's important! - that I'm not a modeler. Or rather any skills I have are rudimentary. All these images use models by other creators. My "art" is in the composing and lighting.

I don't have it handy, but if I remember correctly, I think it was from the POV of someone approaching a Type-R Fat Trader. There's a crosshair like they're trying to line up their approach.

But seriously, my favorite Traveller artist (in no particular order ) are you, Bryan Gibson, Dave Deitrick, Bill Keith and Bill Connors.

EDIT: Found the art. It was the Imperial Lines Frontier Transport from the Rebellion Sourcebook.

Wow.... The one with the Archer class is my favorite, but only by a little. They are all fantastic.

Re: In Praise of TOS-TAS Imagery (Ships)

OK folks... some more stew for the kettle

Lookin' out on a strange, new world.... from pretty high up.





I figure Starfleet may build these lil', cheap deep space way stations/listening posts using old cargo pods as the base... the same way the idea was thrown around to use the Shuttle's main tanks as building blocks for a space station.





The Rama visits a remote orbital research facility.




A Starfleet combined operation near a nebula.




An Archer class scout on the ground at a starbase for maintenance.

I love the Archer class, so I'm so happy to see some more art with that design. As for the idea of the little spacestation, very nice!!

And yes, you should be making the new covers!
