My first new entry in a long time... After the Virginia Tech Shootings, I was asked to donate a piece of SF art to a charity group attempting to raise money for 32 cleft lip surgeries, one in the name of each of the victims (the other two artists were doing fantasy and anthropomorphic pieces). The art was a premium if you donated at a certain level. So, I went to work - I did a Phase II style ship, so as not to appear to be "ripping off" a design. It was a hospital ship, completely unarmed, and I felt it needed to memorialize one of the victims. Dr. Liviu Librescu was a professor of Engineering at Virginia Tech. When the shooter arrived at his classroom door, he blocked the door with his body to allow his students to have a chance to escape via the window. Dr. Librescu was born in 1930, thus the NCC number. Edit: The original version of this model is pretty old, but the rendering was created specifically for the contest.
