    And what a serpent it is! I'm trying to work out what/where everything is - Is that the bridge on the left, shuttlebay and impulse engines at the front, navigational deflector at the top, warp nacelle at the bottom, and sensors or an embarked craft on the right? Amazing! :bolian:

    So which race in the UFP designed this? To my eye there's a definite "non-human" vibe to it. In fact, at first glance I was seeing Giger's derelict from the first Alien film.

    Interesting! I'd love to see an angled view to see how those curves work vertically.

    Atolm, are those pics supposed to be different? They both look like the same view to me.

    First I thought this is supposed to be a Son'a or Breen design. Well it still could be if one or both species were co-founders of the Federation in another timeline or something.

    There are three connections wich look like this could be a modular design. Or at least like some parts, like the ring thing on the right for example, are moveable.

    Would make a good alien gun too. Like a Goa'uld weapon with starfleet plating.

    Thanks. Your assessment is slightly off, this will help:

    Thanks :)

    Thanks :)

    I was thinking the Selay designer worked with Dr. Ja'Dar of Billana III to create a shape that could "ride the wave" effectively within the Soliton phenomena.

    Here are some roughs:

    Sorry about that, the internet on my end is a tad screwy, so it looks like I uploaded the same image twice accidentally.
    Thanks! and good ideas, but those are all used as stabilizing structures from handling the "wave" effect.

    lol :)

    Yeah, that design would confuse the hell out of everyone.

    General: "Well did you capture the bridge crew?"
    Special forces team: "What? you beamed us into the broom closet! Get us out of here!"
    General: "Whoops!?"
    :p

    Selayan naval architects? There's an interesting thought! Well, it's been 35+ years since their world applied for UFP membership. And even not having it doesn't stop their citizens from trying for and getting dual citizenship. Right?

    I'd really like to see someone expand on the tech in the Aliens universe, especially human civil and military craft.

    Well a while back I designed a TOS drilling machine that could have been used for Dilithium mining

    Sounds interesting. Please share it if you're willing. Would be interested to see your take on the Aliens universe. Especially gear/vehicles for the USCM, if you were so-inclined.
