Something new from the shipyards of Orion

If posting this way is not kosher around here, feel free to lock the thread...I don't have access to a good pichost service that has good bandwidth, so I'm posting a link to my thread at SciFi Meshes with the images. You have to be a registered user to see them, but I'm pretty sure many of you are already:

I'd heard that they were a "paid" host site, so I never looked into them...now that I have, let's try this again

Re: Something new from the shipyards of Orion

And here's the "flavor text" from the original thread:

"One of the primary shortcomings of the Wanderer-class blockade run...er free trader was it's limited cargo capacity, less in fact, than many other transport vessels of it's size class. While most of the time this wasn't a problem for the...independant merchentmen...who utilized such vessels, on occasion, a particularly valuable "salvage opportunity" had to be wholy or partially abandoned because there simply was not enough room to fit it in the ship's holds.

"Eventually, a shipbuilding consortium got the good idea to do something about the situation. Keeping all the 'selling points' of the Wanderer, they designed a new ship that incorporated additional cargo capacity, as well as a few systems improvements of their own. Most notably, they introduced the idea of extending the nacelle length by 50% over standard, allowing for the instalation of additional warp coils. By computer regulating the firing sequence for the coils in a staggered manner, it was possible to increase the effective cruise speed of the new ship by an entire warp factor for the same reliability and fuel consumption, as well as giving the ship a 'dash speed' of 2.5 warp factors higher.

"Thus was born the Marathon-class (official designation) High Value Cargo Transport, which quickly established itself as a boon to traders (and others) who specialized in moving high-priority and/or sensitive carges, and a headache for more legitimate merchant concerns, Starfleet Captains on 'pirate duty' and independant system goverments throughout Free Space."

Re: Something new from the shipyards of Orion

I think you might have the texture on the engines wrapped around the wrong axis. They look compressed.

Otherwise, looks like a cool ship!

No insult intended, but it just doesn't do anything for me. Sorry.

Re: Something new from the shipyards of Orion

^Hey, at least you're honest and took the time to say SOMETHING...

Anyways, since this thread keeps getting looks AND the other one has not yet had a SINGLE reply, here's the next one, the Orion Bulk Freighter:

I like it. I've always had a soft spot for the old FASA Orion ships.
