    Titan Designer - This is more of an observation than an issue with the aertwork (which is phenomenal, BTW).

    Wasn't B-4 a Romulan design based on scans of Data when he was disguised as a Romulan in the TNG two-parter that had Leonard Nimoy as a guest star? Based on B-4's actions during ST X, and where they found him (on the Federation side of, or in, the Neutral Zone), I always thought he was a poor copy of Data rather than one of Soong's creations.

    Obviously, I could be wrong. If anyone read the novel, it might appear there, but I didn't think there were any other models except for Data and Lore.

    Also, will Lore be "good" in this universe given that it is a mirror universe, or will he be even more evil and intent on ruling mankind (and wiping them out when necessary) rather acting as some subservient android like Data (in Lore's opinion)?

    Just some thoughts. Like I said, nothing against the artwork and I could be completely wrong on B-4's backstory (I didn't read the novel and the movie didn't say if it was Soong's work or not - at least that I can remember).

    The fine line between continuity and fanwank.
    ^You know, I've never heard that explanation before, but it makes sense and makes me hate B4 slightly less.

    Well here is the first image of my next Dark Mirror Starship.
    For this one I figured I would work my magic on a Classic.
    Here is the Dark Mirror Version of the 1701. No Bloody A,B or C, just
    The Good Old Refit .

    This is also the first time that I have attempted to use a Aztek pattern.

    Enjoy.

    With a physical 6ft model being made for the Star Trek Tour
    Gene Rizzardi has asked me to do a color call out for paint using
    Pantone colors, so I figured I would delete the out Gallery Image
    and post the updated schematics for the Titan with a little
    alter color scheme for the model.

    Physical model of the Titan, eh? That should look really nice, I'm thinking... :)

    It does, but I can't show any of the photos until after the tour opens.

    Titan Designer - Do you have a fore and aft view of the ISS Enterprise (refit)? She looks great, but I am wondering what her weapons layout is (maybe 3 torpedo tubes rather than 2, or even 4 of them, 2 piggybacked on the placement of the original 2).

    The only minor quibble (and I mean minor) I have is the paint job on the primary hull. It is hard to make out the ship's designation with the yellow paint coloring underneath. Perhaps if you move it down so that the yellow starts below the ship's designation and then sweeps up sharply (similar to a Bat'leth for lack off a better comparison) that might minimize the problem.

    Otherwise, great work! :thumbsup:

    I am currently working on the side view. Think of the starship in Of Gods and Men, I am adding a weapons platform kinda like that of that ship.

    Well here is the completed side view of the I.S.S. Enterprise.
    I took an idea from the internet film Of Gods and Men. The main alt Universe ship
    has a weapons pod simular to the one here.

    Here is my first 2008 sketchbook dump.

    The First page is actually four pages of starship concept sketches
    With the bottom two designs being cristined as the Scorpion Class
    and the Tiberus Class

    The Second Set is a set of character studies of the Star Trek TNG Cast.
