    HA! Y'know, I vaguely remember that!;) What art did I send? And I bet it was via GEnie... at least that'd be my guess?

    Seems like you've kept track of my CV fairly well! :lol:

    Thanks again, folks. I should note - it's important! - that I'm not a modeler. Or rather any skills I have are rudimentary. All these images use models by other creators. My "art" is in the composing and lighting.

    I don't have it handy, but if I remember correctly, I think it was from the POV of someone approaching a Type-R Fat Trader. There's a crosshair like they're trying to line up their approach.

    But seriously, my favorite Traveller artist (in no particular order ;)) are you, Bryan Gibson, Dave Deitrick, Bill Keith and Bill Connors.

    EDIT: Found the art. It was the Imperial Lines Frontier Transport from the Rebellion Sourcebook.

    Wow.... The one with the Archer class is my favorite, but only by a little. They are all fantastic.

    OK folks... some more stew for the kettle;)

    Lookin' out on a strange, new world.... from pretty high up.

    I figure Starfleet may build these lil', cheap deep space way stations/listening posts using old cargo pods as the base... the same way the idea was thrown around to use the Shuttle's main tanks as building blocks for a space station.

    I love the Archer class, so I'm so happy to see some more art with that design. As for the idea of the little spacestation, very nice!!

    And yes, you should be making the new covers!

    This is my favorite. Gives Star Trek a "space is big" feeling rarely conveyed by the special effects of the various series.
