That's pretty funny! I wonder if the captain's chair will have built-in satellite surfing buttons or will it still be a remote? With that big dish up there, the crew should be able to get BorgTV channels pretty clear.

Just kidding! Jason, this is really great stuff!!

I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to keep that feature at all, but I suppose a long range sensor array is as good a function for it as any. Form may follow function under normal circumstances, but in this case function may have to give way to form.

I guess those are the housings for the guns, right. Having trouble seeing the gun turrett. It looks like two impulse engines for the ever-helpful "full reverse" mode we often use for emergencies.
Those are, indeed, just the empty housings. I don't think "turrets" is an applicable term as it implies something articulated or rotatable, but "emitters" would probably work. Either way, they are yet to be added.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Just wanted to say, Everybody is commenting on what that could be down and in front of the bridge area, and there has been soom good thoughts, but on most of your starships we are use to that area being just a lighted area that shines on the name and numbers I believe, so of course I am fine with that.

And as some have commented I too liked the Delector Dish on top as it added even more to the possiblity that when the saucer seperates she can be even more self sufficient, along with the weapons and mini nacell ect. Of course it is up to you if you put that back on, but it was a good idea

I'm getting a lot of feedback on the elimination of the aux deflector dish, mostly that I should find a way to keep it. I have to agree that it is a somewhat necessary feature if the saucer is going to be capable of operating independantly at warp.

I'm in the process now of restoring the aux deflector and making some modifications to the forward pulse cannons to blend the various lines together. I should have some updated WIPs to post later today.

Sorry gang, as usual, real life has managed to interfere with my plans. I'll try to get those updated WIPs posted tomorrow.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Vek,

I missed this beauty. Thanks for bringing her back.

Any chance you'll do anything further with the Vanguard?

By the way, I still maintain that your Grandeur design would have been lightyears ahead of the Sovereign Class mess John Eaves "designed."

I plan to do some significant work on the Vanguard as my next project after the Grandeur is finished.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Well, it's been a very busy day and I didn't managed to squeeze in much modeling time, but I did manage to get this far:




Ignore the missing deflector dish and the messed up thruster quads. I'll get to those when I can.

I'm guessing this would be hilarious if I knew the whole story... is this a ref to some other, possibly long-standing, on-board (ahem) DISAGREEMENT? Possibly from some "bowling alley" thread I gave up trying to follow ages ago?
