Re: Strategic Designs/Cydonia 6 Ink: Any Progress?

So I´m under the protective "newbie umbrella" then, am I?

Yes, the Ships of the Starfleet (especially vol. 1) was/is probably the ultimate book in that regard - I love the foldout plans of the Belknap. In overall scope however, I prefer the Dynamics, alas the rather poor drawings make it less fun to look at than the Mastercom works, IMO.

But still, as I said before, I never liked their assumption of there being some 1600 starships in Starfleet. It´s just completely contrary to what we know from TOS and the movies.

Actually, "Ships of the Star Fleet". Two words. My uncle told me once that that's how they always used to write it, even on the show, until things "changed" in the late 80's.

The Belknap plans are cool. I just wish there were more of them. For ALL the ships!

I think I read an interview once where they said they didnt want to nail things down so much either, but then they said it was just really "Class One' ships only they were talking aabout, so that's cool to me. When you've got so much space to cover, its probably actually not close to enough

I recall hearing he'd had some health issues, but I'm not sure of the specifics.

Re: Strategic Designs/Cydonia 6 Ink: Any Progress?

Shane Johnson has had a health scare as well--he related that over at starshipmodeler a couple years or so ago. It makes me mad how the folks from the classic blueprint era have fallen on such hard times...

Re: Strategic Designs/Cydonia 6 Ink: Any Progress?

Hi, I'll post here the same message I'm putting on my site:
First I want to thank everyone for their emails. You’ve all been very understanding and supportive.
I’ve spent the summer and fall of 2014 (in my free time) reformatting the prints to large poster size 23x35 inch which better fit the scale of the ships (no more overlapping sheets, yay!). In doing so,I invested
in a large format printer/plotter. After extensive testing all summer, I felt that I was ready to start sales. To my horror and frustration the machine decided to give every problem there was to give. It took all day
to output something that should have taken 20 minutes. Anyway, I wasn’t going to try and keep up and inevitably fall behind. So I need to sort this problem out before I can continue. My apologies to everyone!

I really don't want to go back to the overlapping sheets. So I'm at a crossroads of what to do.

Tim

Actually, it's "Starfleet" as far back as "The Minagerie" two-parter.

I always thought "Star Fleet" as two words was a copyright workaround. Paramount owned (CBS does now) "Starfleet" so unofficial blueprints and manuals used the two-word version. I even saw one (I think the USS Ingram blueprints?) with "Official Star Fleet product" on the cover, with "Star Fleet" written in the TOS yellow font! At first glance, you'd think it was licenced Trek.
