War is coming to SR-388...
Go full Delta Base Zero on it. Good riddance to SR-388! Every room was practically identical!

All the designs apart of the Renegade story (except for the Escape Pod).
16 of the designs I have never shown before; the others I have, in some form or another.
A lot of the designs have redacted information because they are to be shown at a later date.
For obvious reasons, ships, stations, etc. on this chart are not to scale.
This chart will be edited as I go; hopefully a scale chart will be shown as well.
This started off as a look at the ships I was gonna include in the animation and quickly grew into this.
The planet maybe, but the station at least had different designs for the habitat zones. Although I would take the planet over the station any day. I hate the SA-X. :P
I like the Bobcat. Looks like a Jawa Sandcrawler with a rocket engine.
SAMPSON-CLASS HEAVY DESTROYER
One of the earliest Black Guard vessels, the Sampson class has been on the front lines for the Guard since its inception. Built to be mass produced, the Sampson is equipped with a forward Dual Beam Laser Bank, two Laser Cannons, and a forward torpedo launcher. Although its combat capabilities are limited compared to newer ships such as the Starfleet Constitution-class Heavy Cruiser, it retains high speed and maneuverability than most vessels, allowing it to bring its weapons to bear on enemies quicker. In recent years, this class of vessel is being pulled off the front lines in favor of the newer and more advance Pendragon-class. Even so, the importance of this class to the Guard has not diminished, especially in helping to maintaining sector security in the wake of the Federation-Klingon Four Year War.
During its final decades of service, it would play an important role in the [ERROR 103: CLASSIFIED INFORMATION].
Nice Design there
Preliminary texturing on the saucer. No weathering/damage/etc. effects yet. Bottom sensor dome and bridge turbolift still need textures as well. Still need to model the EVA/Docking doors on the side. Some mesh errors still need to be fixed.
I'm trying to think up of names of fictional/mythical figures that make you think of the word "strong" (whether it be physically, emotionally, etc). For example, Sampson for the Biblical character. For the purposes of this (and to prevent arguments/debates/disrespectful banter), all religious figures are fictional.
Round 2 of texturing. The saucer is mostly done, as the laser banks and a few other details still need to be taken care of. The mesh error still hasn't been taken care of as of this update. Started the neck and the nacelles.
As of this update, there is also a major story change. After a considerable amount of thought and reminder of past experiences in the military, I decided to rectify the Black Guard.
-Name changed from Black Guard to Guard
-Using real world references, the Guard would be a fictional representation of the National Guard, while Starfleet would serve as a fictional representation of the Army. The change also reflect the Guard as a noble group of individuals, whose fate is [CLASSIFIED]
-The previous background of the Guard is no longer valid, but will be saved for another group. This time the Guard will serve as a sort of citizen militia, with members from all the worlds of the Federation, that will maintain security, provide medical assistance, and transport supplies.
-for the member worlds of the Guard to remain equal in power and to prevent any world from gaining too much influence in the Guard, the main HQ for the Guard should be located on a starship instead of a starbase
-the Felgoth, a race I previously reserved for videos and non-canon stories related to Renegade, fought against the Guard in a brief conflict (the Sampson class was conceived during this conflict).
-the first flagship of the Guard was the SS Guardian (CCV-0075) , although by original design a colony vessel, was retrofitted with command capabilities and systems to support the increased responsibilities it would gain (registry change included USS and GSV-0001). Her captain and leader of the Guard during its first four decades was Admiral Gene Isodor.
-Gene Isodor's first name is a nod to the creator of Star Trek. His son is Admiral Russel Isodor, the current leader of the Guard in 2245.
Nice work on that last ship.
There is some heavy visible segmentation on the main-hull and some extreme smoothing-errors around some of the windows though.
Yeah, that helps sometimes. Sorry didn't see your comment. I was just looking at the renders.
There is a reading requirement for my thread.
So here is a sample/concept idea for a vessel page for the Guard Technical/Historical Manual/Chronology. First page would be the ship specifications, history, etc. Second page would be orthos. There is a possibility for a third page that would cover other items.
Lovely little ship.
Out of the eight ship names listed in your sample, I've only been able to positively identify one as a female. (I tried a quick Google search on the last three, but the last two didn't bring any usable results and Toldi seems to be male also. Please do correct me if I'm wrong.) So, if you're still looking for potential names, here's Wikipedia's list of women warriors in folklore.
Sample looks good, btw. Would be interested in seeing what kind of "other items" would be covered on a third page. In-depth look at ship's systems? (engines, sensors, shields, weapons) Embarked craft, perhaps? (on larger vessels)
The last three are Hungarian mythical heroes. You can find them here:
As for the female issue, all of the names submitted to me have been male. Freya I remember from Norse mythology and Athena will be added from Greek Mythology. I'm trying to go with names that invoke the thought of 'strong'. I'm also looking for names that are not commonly known so as to not use the same names that are commonly used. Religious figures are also welcomed (Sampson is a Biblical reference), but I don't want any arguments/debates/disrespectful banter on my thread, so all religious names will be treated as mythical/fiction. I rather that be reserved for one of those other forums.
Thanks for the reference.
She's nearly done. Just a few more texture tweaks as well as building the rooms in the saucer.
Just a short clip. Don't know what is going on with the airlock and the random green sparkles. The nav light isn't that strong and I do have have 2 sided enabled. Unfortunately the blur is also too strong for my taste but then again this was never meant for a finished video. Also the switch from Youtube to Vimeo results in a 1080p video dropped down to 720p.
Started building her a drydock for a construction scene. Only the lights are textured. The rest is temporary.
Separate names with a comma.
