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...
