There is elegance in simplicity, which I apply to the bridge design. I like the D-style, with chairs for the Captain, XO and (empathic) Diplomat. And, the variable geometry warp nacelles and atmospheric travel would probably require functional streamlining. I kind of like the arrowhead design for the saucer section. Although it may not be possible, what if you combined that design with an Oberth-style body? The Oberth was the coolest design, although it was probably the most impractical one. And, please don't abandon the Observation Lounge, behind the Main Bridge! Could all these variables be combined into a design for the Vesta-class ships?
I read on his website that new pics will see the daylight sometime in october.
you know what the worst thing about that is? i wont get zero sum game until mid november... i think i'm gonna lock myself in a dark room to not be able to look at the pics. or else, i'll die of excitement during the wait for typhon...
^ goddamn. why a magazine that you cant get a hold of in europe? (and no, britain isnt europe...) love the pic though. albeit small, but still nice
You can! Just join an official fan club. Germany turned their fanzines into a translated version of the mag!
The Aventine is beautiful! A logical evolution of the familiar design. Too bad you and Sean were not allowed to design the Star Trek Online ships which just look like cheap kitbashes of AMT models.
you could ask a british member to buy you a copy and ship to you at cost...
Can buy it in Ireland, and we're in Europe.
And the UK is also a member of Europe and a European nation!
oh, c'mon! is there a global anti irony movement this week or something? every ironic remark i've written this week has backfired...
At least we're finally getting orthos...
Yes I got my copy last night and read and looked at it this am. Loved the art and the changes Mark made. Still falling in love with this new lady.
I couldn't get too good a look at the sample image, but it looks like he changed out the "Defiant-ish" wedge prow for a more Ent-E/Voyager saucer...is that correct?
Thought it killed me to switch away from September's great shot (pre-refit Enterprise) the Aventine is featured for this month in the SotL calendar.
Yeah, and it is a nice picture.
Er...not to nitpick (yeah, right), but how did we arrive at a mass of 321,630 tons?
Are we going to 'officially' find out what the Aventine's bridge will look like?
i'm sure we will. but when is another matter. since Mr. Rademaker has finished the ship now, maybe he'll do some interiors as well.
Have they talked about the Aventine over in Trek Tech as well, or is all "uncanon" ship discussion done here in Trek Lit?
some consider the treklit books soft canon, but the opinions differ quite a bit. truthfully, its safer to say that the aventine is uncanon.
