First, I need to deal with the latest eviction threat.
I've really gotta get a better job...
Okay, I think I've got a plan to keep a roof over my head. If nothing else, it'll buy me some time. Might play hell with my already horrible credit rating, but all I need is an extra day or two.
This is the sort of situation that plays hell with the creative process, y'know?
We artists work best when we're suffering .
Probably why I've been so creatively bankrupt the last couple of decades - I'm too damn comfortable.
I'd also like a peak at those. I didn't mind ENT's ship interiors too much, although they needed at least some colour, but the NX'x exterior was way of base.
I like the design of the NX-01 on its own. As a precursor to the NCC-1701 and her ilk... it doesn't work well for me.
You married Christie Brinkley, too, huh?
No, Sela Ward:
(well, some people think there's a resemblance)
Well, there's suffering and there's having a gun held to your head. The only creative thought I've come up with in the past 24 hours is how to get out of this mess.
Funny, you don't look like Forbin .
Lucky man! (I wish I had Sela Ward ... )
I think it might be time to update the cross-section...
I respect your skill, but dayum, that Reeses is ugly AND makes me want chocolate!
No, peanut butter!
Eh, waddaya want from a kitbash made of Dick Tracy's Space Coupe, the Jetson's car, and some Space Shuttle boosters?
Get your peanut butter out of my chocolate!
Hey, I see her inner beauty. I like it! :thumbsup:
Suffering is highly overrated. It does more to stifle artistic work than to inspire it.
I've also gotta say, Forbin, that U.S.S. Reese is pretty ugly, but your rendering of it is gorgeous. Great artwork.
I too would love to see any designs for the NX-01 that the production team might have come up with, though from what I've heard B&B didn't bother looking for anything new- they decided right off to re-use the Akira.
by the way, Captain Robert April...
Constitution Class question: Those windows on the bottom of the saucer- I'm looking to design a lab with an optical telescope looking down through one of those windows. Does that sound like something one might find down there? Just looking for an informed opinion.
A-FRACKING-MEN!! Can't really get inspired about deck layouts when you're in survival mode.
I guess, although since I've pretty much got that entire level dedicated to the ship's weapons systems and security, it wouldn't really fit with my version.
And since all you'd really need is a sensor feed, an actual optical telescope would be a waste of valuable space.
You're PROBABLY right, but I'm not sure- might'nt there be SOMETHING an optical telescope can do that sensors and scanners can't? Can we really know, considering this is make believe 23rd century technology?
Besides, the telescope-like device looking down through the window might be a dedicated scanner that the lab in question could direct at whatever they wanted to- though, looking downward out one of those windows, it would have a very limited range of movement.
This might fit the bill of what you're considering.
From the new CGI model of the upcoming remastered Star Trek...
I'm guessing that little doohickey that many of us never knew was there until very recently is now canon, and yes, I will be including it into the plans at some point.
Looks to me like a directional sensor, for high level sensor scans. Probably only has a relatively short range (no further than. say, standard orbit over a Class M planet to just below the surface.
No, that's not what I had in mind... and I would guess that's the ship's main phaser or a photon torpedo launcher. If so, not a very elegant solution to where the heck do those weapons come out of. So wierd!
According to research in other threads, that was indeed meant to be the main phaser emitter.
Effects never matched the doohickey, though.
