"Federal Movers", eh? You should have put "We Move Anywhere" on the side.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

I gotta ask, is that Federal Movers ship a part of the Federations "rag-tag fugitive fleet"?

When the Borg wipe out the Federation and hunt the last survivors (with a plan),... sure!

Lokks great, although i would not use colored symbols on a otherwise black and white schematic
Thanks! Good point about the color, I hadn't considered that.

Edit: I updated the above image in grayscale.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

I'm going to cross post this with my own thread, simply because I think it turned out so well, and I know there likely are people reading this thread that haven't been to mine.

Inspired by the description if the "battleships" in Diane Duane's "The Wounded Sky", one of which also appeared in the early "Rihannsu" books as a "Defender-class destroyer". I took some liberties, but given the vague nature of the description I don't know how many. To give you a sense of scale, the saucer section is approx 130% the size of a Constitution-class'.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Ok, this is a second shot at a design I posted up-thread as the "Lewis & Clark." I was never 100% pleased with the design as it stood, especially the neck between the primary and secondary hulls, so I did a bit more work on it. Oddly, it was initially the Daedelus style nacelles that I was dissatisfied with, but those are one of the only things I didn't change yet!


Edit to add:And I noticed as I added this image that I--as I did with the original--forgot to add the sublight engines. Oh well.. you can expect another update soon!
Edit #2: Ok, its fixed. The sublight/impulse engine is there now, though mostly hidden behind the warp nacelle in the side view.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Here's another one. Its a variation on the Justinian design posted above. I see it as a slight predecessor to that class and an alternate to the NX-Class from ENT, which is where I got the idea of naming the initial run after the U.S. Space Shuttles. As an added bonus, I actually remembered to include an impulse engine this time!

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Another great design! The "named after space shuttles" theme was also one of the things, that i really liked about Enterprise (without of course the name Enterprise). Nice to see, that you also included the soviet shuttles in the list.

Thanks! I think I had as much fun coming up with some of those names as I did making the ship. I wanted to try and give it more of an international feeling, which is what I would expect from a United Earth Ship

Edited to add: I'm still not 100% satisfied with the names I chose. Voyager and Orion are US centered names and I wanted more international ones, but couldn't come up with anything else at the time. Suggestions are welcome!

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Those are all good, but I was specifically thinking of names that were related to non-US space programs. Like the Russian shuttles or Israeli astronaut and shuttle crewman Ilan Ramon.

Very cool, Sean. And I'd say you're no more mad than I am, but I'm not sure thats much consolation
