Re: Trident

Here are a couple attempts at a TMP ERA Kirk.
I am more happy with the top Kirk.

Re: Trident

Looks very good Sean. I like the new look of him through. Looks more like a middle aged Shatner.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Well I as I have been told not to show the whole image of the ship I
creating for the Hidden Frontier folks. I figured I could get away
with a teaser of her silhouette compared to that of the Titan.

As soon as I can show the whole ship I will post them here along
with the development sketches I did.

So for now enjoy this little teaser.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

I was asked on another site to show a top view size comparision of
Federation One with Cannon ships so here is what I gave them.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Sweet. You have me interested right now Sean. Now I can't wait to see what is in store over at Hidden Frontier, since you gave this tease. I know I'm going to love to see it once its revealed. I can see a lot of different classes involved with this design too. That wouldn't be a Defiant class at the top there? Not the first time a fan inspired designed has a Defiant as an escort or yacht attached to the ship.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

that ship attached was inspired by the Defiant, but is 2 to 3 times bigger
and has retractable nacelles, a large aft shuttle bay for dignitaries, and
also has space for meeting areas. The deflector was most deffinantly
barrowed from the Defiants design. Next to the Miranda class the Defiant
class is my favorite compact design.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

I decided to start designing some of the Titan's Shuttles.
This project is by no means official, unless Marco asks me
to actually design them.

But none the less here is my first sketch of shuttle craft Armstrong
(Not that Armstrong) this one is named after the Jazz performer.
See Titan book one I believe they named this shuttle in that book.

Remember these are just for fun.

^ Not to detract from your work (because it is exceptional) but don't they say that the Titan's Armstrong is a Type 11 shuttlecraft? We've seen them on screen in Insurrection (the shuttle that Picard/Worf are in).

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

It's always good to have additional different classes of shuttles. Maybe the Armstrong is added later on during an important mission.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Here are a set of quick sketches of shuttle ideas. I will be sketching
up new designs based off of these.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

I hope nobody laughs this idea to death, but one thing I loved about "SPACE: 1999" is the ability of the Eagle class spacecraft to "dock" with other ships, especially each other, even while still in flight. Another thing I loved was the modularity of the Eagles; the command module could break off and become its own ship.

I'm wondering if there isn't some design that would allow Federation Starfleet shuttles/runabouts to both (1: have sides of passenger compartments exposed so that the ships could dock in space/flight, and (2: have a more modular design so that sections could be jettisoned/replaced for mission-specific reasons.

One idea I've never seen explored in trek is the notion of a shuttle's nacelles being oriented like the Stargazer: one on top, one on the bottom, only long and thin so they span the length of the ship. Another idea would be if the nacelles were closely integrated into an aft compartment, with forward compartments for command/personnel/cargo.

Does any of this make sense?

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Here is thenext detailed sketch idea for the Armstrong.
This on is based off of the upper left shuttle from my previous
set of mini sketches.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Looks great. Reminds of how the Argo was made to resemble a runabout/shuttle as well. Seems like Starfleet doesn't want a whole fleet of different classes of runabouts.
