Give NASA a break. It's not completely their fault. Their recent budget cuts has been a killer. I would say that Lockheed Martin hasn't done anything because they don't have enough of an incentive to bother, but the rumors go that they have been building trans-atmospheric craft for the U.S. Air Force in secret. Craft that are super fast, and super secret.

Well, either not at all or not anymore. Good job!

Pffft, NASA has not impressed me for years. And considering they have the damned Brookings Report, which I hate with passion, I have no respect for NASA to begin with.

More booster engine detailing. I've also optimized most of these parts and the polycount has actually gone down since the last set of renderings.

My own research, and it's right there page 215, I believe. It pretty much says, "hide anything we find from them, they'll go crazy otherwise" So, that makes me have no respect for the all mighty NASA.


Anyhow, I look forward to the next images.

I'm not normally a stickler about staying on-topic, but I'm having a really hard time seeing what bitching about NASA has to do with my thread.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Man, those engines are fantastic. I can't wait to see this thing moving around.

Slightly off topic, but is the Polaris film something that will be publicly released when it's done, or is it an actual show pitch?

Can't wait to see some more.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

As I understand, it will be an open release on the web.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

We haven't really started to address distribution yet; there are a number of possibilities. But it is a stand-alone short film rather than a pilot-presentation.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

So, in other words, we shouldn't be expecting it to air on, say, the SyFy channel, right?

Oh yes, Polaris, airing at midnight, right after that awesome lead in by Man-panther VS Wolfgirl.

If the makeup were really good, I could get into that one! But since this is SyFy, they'd probably "make do" with Woochie brand nose pieces and Rubies' grease-paint.

Sincerely,

Bill

That was an early script title that was rewritten to sex appeal to the teenage demographic.

Besides, it's Wolfgirl; because everything is better with vampires or werewolves...

BTW, will there be any werewolves or vampires on Polaris?
