Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

The large communications array looks like a large mobile subspace radio, if those things at the back of the habitable section are engines. The blue registration and marking seems to recall the UE of the Star Trek universe, but the shape of the vessel makes it clear that this is another universe altogether.

I'm really glad that I asked you to post your UEG stuff here, because I don't remember seeing that other vessel before.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

It is basicly a large subspace radio but not mobile in any way. It normally would end up being towed into place. The colors and markings are ment to feel like the UN.
This is a companion piece the the large dish. This normaly close to a planet. This is an old pic of the original and I've yet to restart it.


And this is the only ship I've finished so far.

The history is kind of rough at the moment.
The M'Aangan race is the first exra-terrestrial life form encountered by the Human race. This encounter took place a few years after the Explorer class ship Christopher Columbuswas thought lost to an explosion. This explosion, instead of destroying the Columbus opened a hole in space and sucked the Columbus into M'Aangan occupied terratory.
After floating nearly dead in space for 18 months a M'Aangan freighter found the ship and towed it back to the nearest inhabited world. Over several months the crew of the Columbus, still kept alive by their failing cryotubes are revived and their ship repared with the addition of Earths first FTL drive. This drive will become known as a jump engine.
The first use of this Jump engine will return the Columbus and her crew to Earth escorted by two Ships of the Royal M'Aangan Navy. Shortly after these incidents the United Earth Government is formed and the M'Aangan become it's greatest ally.

The M'Aangan are a humanoid race. The males are an average height of 8 feet and the females are an average height of 7 feet. Both sexes have deep blue eyes and long black hair, the males keep there hair tied back. They are considered beautiful by many but this could be caused by a pheromone that adjusts to whatever race might be near. They have a very limited control over this pheromone and it is not sex specific. Meaning a male pheromone
can effect either male or female of another race. One of the few known races that this has no effect on is the Sckrow, a small reptilian race. Because of this the Sckrow hate the M'Aangans since they believe the M'Aangan are doing it delibratly.

Normaly a very open race who freely gives it technology to other races. The one thing unknown about their technology is their fighter craft. Pilots for these fighters have never been seen. This leads many to believe that the ships are piloted by remote or have a biolagical brain that is grown within the ship. These fighters have no FTL drive but when needed several of these fighters can be attached to an external FTL drive. This device is called the death blossom. These ships normaly work in groups of five or more.
The weapon systems of thses ships can be slaved together to hit a single target. One ship will move forward of the rest and paint a target. All other ships will lock to this target automaticly. This can effectivly keep the other ships at a safe enough distance while fireing. This can also be used for recon by sending the intelligence to the support craft.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

UPDATE...
Well I decided to have every other dish facing the other way. Just think it looks better. I also added guide wires now all I need to do is texture the support structure.

Started to get work done on the large dish.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

Curious, what's the scale of the structure? The habitable part looks to have many tiny windows or are those just lights?

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

Those are lights. At the time that I first built these I wasn't even thinking about scale. But now that's changed so I haven't come up with an exact scale yet.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

^Oh, doesn't have to be an exact scale. Just was interested in if this is bigger than your average starship in the setting, or something along the lines of a the ISS in size.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

It should be rather large because I was thinking since this for deep space that it would also be able to double for a small space station if needed. Just incase a ship needs to grab supplies or have repairs done. Something like that mainly for emergencies.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

I really like the shape and sense of compactness of the M'Aangan fighter.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

Thanks because that was what I was going for.

UPDATE...
The Primary is saucer is just about done. I can start thinking about textures.

Started to get some of the primary structure in place.

Lovely as always. I hope we can have orbital radio telescopes that look like that one day.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

UPDATE...
Just an image for scale. The size of this thing is much bigger than I had originaly thought.
The M’Aangan Royal Cruiser is 600m tall. Earth 1 is 228.45m long and the Main Structure without the dish is 2074.69m tall.

Something I’m thinking of attching the the central hub of the main dish.

The very early stages of the texture for the main dish. I borrowed the UEG logo from my Earth 1 ship.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

Cool, if that's a "small" space station I can't wait to see a big one!

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

Well then, you are in luck because I do have a very big one that I have to redo.

Re: OT: The United earth Universe.

UPDATE...
More textures for the main communication dish.

Decided to build a new hatch for the top of my Starliner.


Playing around with a bare metal texture for the Starliner.
