Since I'm now getting into doing 3D here's my first ever ArtChallenge Entry! It's a rough concept for Earth's first Mars-Shot vechile. This is a "first draft" so it's very likely going to change, get refined, or more detail. I'm not likely to do texturing on it as I've not mastered that paticular skill. I'm not entirely settled on the "history" of this thing, or where it fits in Trek Canon, but I invision it as Earth's first manned Mars-Shot/landing vessel. The "nose" piece is a landing craft that can seperate from the bulk of the ship (inset), land on the surface, and take off again to redock with the mothership. (Presumably living facilites, refueling stations, and other scientific equipment are already on the planet placed there in previous missions in a "multi staged" preperation for manned exploration of the planet. (Rather than bringing everything needed all at once.) The large cylindircal bits in the back are the engines/fuel the sphere spins on its axis (magnetic repulsion from the rings around it) to simulate gravity inside as well as offering some protection in the case of radiation spikes, the next section is the main section of the ship where sleeping facilities, dining and the head and then the nose is the cockpit.
