Bringing back to life the Apollo Class

More than ten years ago, when the dinossaurs walking on Earth, there was a group named Wolfpack. They were the first ones to make scifi meshes available, and who inspired me in my 3d adventures. In 1998 Eric Peterson built, between other meshes, the Apollo Class. It isn´t a public release, but I always loved that ship. So, I trying to build my own version. Take a look and tell me what do you think about her.

Re: Bringing back to life the Apollo Class

So it's a forerunner of the Nebula-class starship?

Re: Bringing back to life the Apollo Class

Being a little pendantic, but I was seeing 'sci-fi' meshes on UseNet back in 1989... ray-traced Enterprise variants were all the rage back then.

I might have seen that ship back in the early 90's.

I always loved the Nebula style and you're doing great work on this one.

I took it to mean that the meshes were available for download.

Anyway, very nice.

There was a world before Al Gore invented the Internet, ya know. Some of us even had computers. :P

Thank you for the kind words.
It isn´t a big update, but here it goes anyway.
Added the thusters and started to play with colors.

Re: Bringing back to life the Apollo Class

I was never really a fan of the Ambassador-style line of ships but for some reason this one always worked for me. The weapons pod on top just exudes a certain unique level of un-Starfleet bad-assness, which is probably why I like it so much. You are definitely doing this old girl justice!

And yeah, I miss the old WolfPack stuff. A shame their site hasn't been updated since 1997 - they were some of the earliest pioneers of real next-generation (pun not intended) fan-made designs and renderings. Some of their stuff still holds up pretty well today compared to the more advanced meshes, texture/bump maps and rendering engines that have since been built.

Re: Bringing back to life the Apollo Class

Update time!
The plateau was redone;
- The plateau, the upper structures and sec hull were repositionated;
- the neck won´t have torp launchers anymore;
- the ship is a little longer now, but I believe it makes her better ballanced;
Is it better?
