Re: Star Ship Polaris

I've got to say, this is one damn fine looking ship.

Got a few renderings to post over the next couple of days, starting with this one:



Still need to add the door and some other details, but the EVA pod bay is nearly done.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Well, I built the exterior of the pod bay, not the interior, hence the pitch black hole beyond the hatchway threshold. I can build it if you want me to, but I will probably wait until the rest of the ship's exterior is finished. No sense holding up delivery of the entire model for something that appears in only one or two brief shots.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Oh, I agree - I'd been assuming that interior areas of the vessel were something for other folks to work out as we got to them, based of course on any concept art you want to contribute. And we really do want to move forward with the ship exterior animations pretty quickly. Everyone's excited about working with this design.

And I neglected to say how cool the detailing of the pod bay area is right now. What you do is never what I expect. This thing really looks like it could work IRL.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

I do give a fair amount of thought to how these things would actually function in addition to how they look. Helps to maintain the suspension of disbelief.

I'm making steady progress now that most of the detailing has already been worked out in 2D. I know you guys are chomping at the bit for it and I'm trying to squeeze in as much work on it as my other obligations will allow.

Should have more updates posted by tonight.

So are you guys going to have "pod bay doors"?

You need to add a mat that says "welcome".

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Actually, that would be kinda cool. Based on the script, I can think of a couple of crew members who might find it amusing to paint "WELCOME" on the deck outside the pod bay.

Or not.

I'm reminded of Joss Whedon's comment about Zoic, where he'd ask them for a ham sandwich and they deliver a whole pig.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

The amount of detailing is bordering on preposterous. I wonder if Captain Logan can slip her into STO on the sly somehow?

She's completely gorgeous. I love the mola mola type ship orientation. I can't wait to see this in action.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Does anyone remember the old Gilligan's Island routine where the castaways would hear something on the radio and one would react and wonder aloud about it and then the voice on the radio would answer them?

So I was looking at the first picture and marveling at the well-crafted detail. "I wonder," I whispered to myself so no one else could hear, "what's supposed to be under those panels?"

I then scrolled down to the second picture and there was the answer. I kind of chuckled, but the hair on the back of my neck stood up. Well done, Vektor, but ... cut that out.
