    What's an ortho, and what does it have to do with Star Trek Online? Or am I getting the wrong end of the stick here?

    This is the best I can think of. It doesn't have everything you're asking for, but it's got a lot of stuff.

    I think the Excalibur would deserve some nice art on its own.

    Ooooh! I REALLY like the Magellan!

    Orthos are short for orthographic diagrams or schematics, generally showing between 4 and 6 non-perspective-distorted views of a particular vessel giving a fairly comprehensive idea of its configuration. These usually include at least one side view (provided the ship is not asymmetrical), a front view, rear view, top and (sometimes) bottom views.

    An Ortho is an image of the ship from every direction - both sides, top, bottom, front, back.

    Unfortunatly I haven't done this for any of the ships in STO, althought I thought someone had over on the STO forum.

    Can you even generate orthos in-game? I don't think the camera can be set to not show perspective.
