Do you have your own website or compilations for sale. I had a nice collection of your work from Renderotica until my Frakin' external fried itself! Can't even remember the names of your gems! Thanks.

Yeah, I'm always happy to get away from the "saucer+nacelle" formula.

Very true :)

Another thing to explore. Don't know how, if, or when it happens in the TOS universe, but I play Star Fleet Battles and there was the time before the Federation became standardized... where each member race operated their own ships in service of the Federation. That is at least until a majority of the Orion fleet flew off to form the notorious pirate cartels. After that came the standardized hulls and multiracial crews :) Be cool to explore that period before the saucers came to be :)

Didn't SFB focus on new/unique designs just for adversary ships? Like the Kzinti and Gorn? Or did they start going into areas like Vulcan, Andorian, and Tellerite ships in attempt to keep new stuff flowing into their product line?

Just the racial ships.. Kzitini, Gorn, Lyran. They did an Early Years set up... not sure if they included any of the National ships (Vulcan, etc) though. For new stuff they did different classes and variants, then started adding new races.

Not too sure about the Odin model, I cant tell which way up it is! Very nice Uranus though. :)

I figure "up" is defined by the shuttlebay having a "lip" and not a "canopy".
Was it your design, or did you just do the modeling?

axeman3d Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
lol. It's half and half I suppose. The basic shape was made by someone else but it was a work in progress sketch which only showed the basics from the front upper quarter. The rear end with its shuttle porch and the underside and much of the detail is me.

Cool ship - very 'Boeing.' Not sure about the aztecing, though - it gives it more of a "Chris Foss" than a 'Trek' look, to me.

Great pic, though ;). Your usual superb use of color and lighting.

Does the Odin class have a bowling alley? :D

I ask 'cause I'm trying to determine when Star Fleet stopped using photon torpedo trackways for recreational bowling and when they started adding dedicated alleys to the plans for new ships. (There are rumors of a horrible accident in which a party of bowlers was fired into space during a weapons control test, but it was hushed up.) :-)

If you make the photon torps spherical, then you can have them serve double-duty!

And the ship's bowling team in vacuum suits could be the backup emergency launching system!
Translated from the Klingon: "How in Kalis' name are the earthers getting that much twist on their torpedoes??" :D

Excellent point of view right down to look of the hull! Even the glow off the planet sets this off too!

I guess that's always my goal - to make something recognizably TOS, but that we've not previously seen. But obviously my results in meeting that goal vary. Glad this one clicks with you!

There needs to be a Garumba model so this Taranis and my Taranis can have an epic fight scene... just so we can settle who wins the name :p
