Well, the Kirov has already appeared in a lot of places. Why not just picture that and squint a bit.

This ship looks way cool. Love the nacelles and how you kept the classic lines too.

Well done!

Is the New Jersey the BCJ?


If so, I think the class was used for the Federation Commander: Klingon Attack cover - and other variants of the Fed battlecruiser can be found on the covers of both Klingon Border and Romulan Border.


(You can see said covers in wallpaper form here.)

Nice!

Since I asked Icy, I may as well as you also, Vance - could you consider also doing a schematic for the Fed GSX, and if so could you please use the NCC-1821 USS Sakharov? (Sakharov was the ship which explored the Omega Octant for five years, from Y214-Y219 - as detailed in the timeline seen in both the Omega Master Rulebook and Module Omega 5.)

I don't want cover art for its own sake. I want a pretext for Icy_Penguigo to do a CG model.

Yep, this is awesome. Totally awesome. I love it. Keep going!

Also, in case you haven't seen it yet, I e-mailed you high-res orthos of the ship.

It actually has been on a cover that I've done, but it was one of my early works and the model I used is badly outdated now(It was one of the originals from my SFC mod).

Now that I've been undertaking my long-term project of making all new models, I only really have time to make new ships as they're needed. The Fed BCH just hasn't come up again yet. Honestly though, I might just try to make one anyway, since it's a good one to have in the ship library.

I know. That's why I said to tell Steve to put it on the cover of something.

That would be totally awesome.

Re: Star Fleet X-Technology Heavy Cruiser

You had an older hires model that you did of the FBCH. I have a pic somewhere on my old PC's HDD (Along with an old hires D7). I don't know how I missed them while transfering files to my new PC.

Here's one of a CA and DN that I do have on this computer. Bring back any memories?

circa 2002. Do you still have these meshes?

You are correct sir!

The New Jersey class is indeed the BCJ.

Vance is also correct about using the Kirov class. The only difference between the three classes of Federation Battlecruiser is the pair of weapons mounted at the base of the neck. The Bismarck class (BCF) has Gorn Plasma Torpedoes, The Kirov class (BCG) has Drone Launchers, and the New Jersey class (BCJ) has Photon Torpedoes. Otherwise, the three classes are identical.
