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



I have been contacted by Johnathan Connor, he is the chapter president for USS Karme,
a chapter of STARFLEET, International. They are represented in the fictional world of Trek by the Luna-Class.

He needs a completed logo for their chapter.

So here is a set of first passes that I have sent him to look over.

Shit. The Phoenix is loose again!

This is what happens when you use the M'Kraan Crystal to power the warp core!

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

These are all great illustrations, but for a logo, I think you need to think simpler. I like the phoenix, but personally I'd smooth it out a bit. The other thing is that most of these have way too many overlapping elements. The first one alone has five parts - Starfleet delta, phoenix, moon, ship, & arrow/ribbon. My favorite of the bunch would actually be only part of the second one - keep the phoenix behind the moon, and remove the ship & ribbon. One last thing is the NCC number is not quite centered underneath the name.

I don't mean to ruffle your feathers or anything. I really do like the illustrations, I just thought you'd want some constructive criticism.

B.J,
Constructive Crits are fine. As I stated this is the first pass. It is up to the client to let me know which one to go with and to simplify if needed. It is all part of the creative process for me.

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



I don't remember if I ever posted these Orthos of the
Titan that Ellery sent me a long time ago when he was
creating the model for the book cover. So I figured I would post them now.

These are the same images that I sent to Gene Rizzardi when he was making
the 6ft model of the Titan. Also these were used
as a base for the Starcraft resin kit that is out as well.

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

Yes, this has always been a fantastic and worthy addition to the pantheon of Trek ships.

Out of curiosity, Sean, even though it's been -- mentioned -- on screen (in Nemesis), it's never been actually -- seen -- on screen, and hence, not completely "official" by most people's criteria. Has Paramount sanctioned this as an official design for the vessel, considering its existence on book covers and being generally accepted by the fandom? Or do they still reserve the right to replace it with something by someone on their own payroll? Can't remember if this was ever discussed in the early days of your design or after you won the contest.

Well John Van Citters the President of CBS Consumer Products did commission a 6ft model to be used in the Tour (He also praised the design), and Cryptic did include it into the Star Trek Online Universe, so I guess won could say that it has be accepted as almost-Cannon. But I guess until they decide to put her on screen we will never really know.

I am just glad that people have grown to love her. Either Cannon or not I am glad I got to be part of Trek in one way or another. I just hope that one day that I may be able to
work on something Official for them.

This is still one of the best Starfleet designs in fandom, and was (IMO) rightly chosen as the winner in the competition.
Looking back at it all, how does it feel now? The entire concept of one of your designs being a near-official Star Trek ship?

Surreal actually. Going from not being liked when first chosen to being accepted. Granted it hasn't got me any jobs with design studios or film studios. But I have got a lot of freelance commissions from fans and got to meet a few Writers, Authors, Actors in the fields via email. That has been nice. It sounds weird, but I even like the fact that Wil Wheaton actually sent me a congrats email.

Who knows maybe one day I will be asked to do something more in the field and universe of Trek. I would love mean love to work on a Official Show or Movie or Game as a contributing concept artist.

One can dream right.
