    Thanks Mike. And let's not forget how much luck played into the Battle of Midway. Seriously, we got lucky as well as having brilliant commanders.

    Now in a story, that is a tough one to show when you are trying to show how brilliant your commanders are (on both sides).

    But great to see another fan of the big Pacific sea battles Mike!

    Sure our side was VERY lucky, but the luck wouldn't have mattered without superb leadership and the valor of our sailors and aviators.

    On the subject of luck, it's reported that the biggest question Napoleon would ask when someone was being recommended for promotion was "Is he lucky?" :)

    The latest from Tobias RIihetr. The Klingon Space Docks, where the D-7s are being built.

    Stunning. Fits perfectly with the wedge profile of the Klingon ships. Gives the impression they build that facility to build a LOT of D7s, which I'm sure they will. ;)

    Glad to see that someone else remembers "Midway"... I watched that film over and over again as a kid. I remember the scene you are speaking of, and hearing this has me jazzed!

    Honor Harrington??? Egads, you're giving this history and sci-fi fan a total nerd overload. I totally, agree - not copying - but just the kind of research you are putting into this film leaves me in awe. I am thrilled to hear what you are doing!

    I think that those final DS9 massive battles are at a time apart... they make logical sense for a massive Federation with a history of some 80000 ships (not that all of them are in commission, mind you!) allied with several other forces. Such a battle would not be feasible for the Federation, any more than a battle like Coral Sea, Midway, or Leyte Gulf would have been feasible for Commodore Dewey.

    Yes I agree. Different times. The Federation is about 80 years old at the time of "Axanar". It is 2245. So the Federation is much smaller. Even in TOS we get the sense that Starfleet is a small force.

    And many of the same forces we know of historically are at play. Maybe the Klingons see the Federation as a growing threat and that is why they went to war. But they did attack the Federation and this war will determine if the Federation survives.

    Christian, Richard Hatch and I have a meeting today to discuss Richard's character, and especially the costuming. We will see new Klingon costumes, and some pretty spectacular stuff for Kharn, our main antagonist (Richard).

    I can tell you the hardest part of writing the script has been the Battle of Axanar itself. Just trying to get it right and make it interesting.

    Thank you for your support!

    Absolutely brilliant looking.

    But I'm curious as to why y'all deleted the Kelvin style window viewscreens.

    Just to make it look less like the Kelvin.

    Have to admit that I liked that design element of the bridges from ST XI. There are moments where it really works.

    As for the drydock design: habitat space at the core, fuel pods in the outer ends of the "arms", I'm guessing here?

    That is the general idea, yes. Habitat and offices in the center, fuel and building materials at the outer edges where they canĀ“t cause havoc and are easily resupplied.

    I have been given permission from Alec to post my original sketches of the U.S.S.Ares that
    I created before any Adobe Illustrator Images were done. As you can see from theses original Pen & Inks
    I wanted to go with the under slung nacelles.

    Love the designs
    So for curiosity sake since you are using The updated Jjverse pre narada cannon designs does that mean they are also up scaled in size as well. I believe the jj kelvin was something like 600 meters compared to the jjprise 750 meters
