    Winging it right now - the rigging on this shouldn't be complex in any event. It's a deliberately simple, mechanical design - we ain't doing Na'vi here. :lol:

    Hang on, so why exactly did I have to strip naked and be painted blue? I feel violated now.

    Hey, that's pretty slick. Guess I'd better include a docking bay for those things. You given any thought to how many they would have on board?

    I was going to post some big updates on the Polaris this weekend but I went to boot up my workstation at home last night and it crashed on startup. Not sure what's going on yet, maybe some bad memory or a graphics card failure, but it will have to be fixed before I can make any further progress.

    In the mean time, I do have a couple of new renderings from last week:

    This is part of the FTL drive system. I detailed all the internal guts for two reasons: First, because some of it is visible around the edges of the sphere even with the access panels closed; second, because the objects surrounding the sphere relate to a specific plot point in the script. Dennis, you may recognize these as "Nielsen generators."

    A few more images will be available in the Fan Art thread as soon as I get them posted.

    Well, in a Popular Mechanics sort of way, I suppose. ;)

    Whatever works for you. :)

    Seriously, though, loving the craftsmanship here.

    Marvelous.

    I hope that within the next two to three months we'll be able to put something from the movie online that will include this ship.

    ...like the corners of my mind,
    Memories,
    Misty watercolor memories,
    Of the way we were ...

    Hey, Dennis. Any chance you'll be attending Farpoint and showing some bits from Polaris there? I haven't heard anything along this line, but I missed your presentation at Shore Leave. Let me know!

    Just curious... what are you quoting with the "Don't care, don't care, don't care?" (I'm not sure if that ? should be outside the quotes with a "." in side, so forgive my grammar.)
