Systems Analysis by Rob-Caswell Systems Analysis by Rob-Caswell
On her shakedown voyage the Clarke sets a new speed record for her tonnage class, reaching the galactic rim in record-setting time. Once there she pulled into the supply and repair depot at Stoffels III for a complete astronautics and engineering systems analysis, as well as a thorough hull inspection. In Captain Peters’ mission debrief, she reported even fewer problems than the engineers had expected after her sister ship’s troubling shakedown.

However their sensors reported a curious subspace anomaly at extreme range, 36 parsecs back. The data signature has aspects of what Federation science has come to recognize as a Preserver subspace blind. Once all systems have been checked out, the Clarke will return to the location, try to reacquire the signal, and pursuer further investigation.

All an excuse to a) keep using this cool Century class model, and b) throw it together with the Nemesis dry dock (awful movie, neat tech!). Plus 8 Distant lights and 17 spotlights - YEE-HAW!!!!

Thanks. I wish I'd made it a LITTLE more populated, but I guess it still makes a nice impact.

Yeah, it's interesting how the anglular dock somehow DOESN'T interfere with her graceful lines.

But then, as LM Ant points out above, maybe that's just a product of my being a bondage aficionado? ;p

That's damn sweet of you, Sir!
Thank you :)

and...wow! 25 lights in one scene??? That's...wow.
But...yeah..how else could the illumination of The Clarke be that perfect?
Cool job again!

"Starship bondage".

:lol: Only you'd make the connection, dear one!

Once I realized I'd need a shitload of lights to make this one happen.... I HAD to do it! Just to try it. Just to see if I could really make it work. Those are the best challenges. They taunt you and you KNOW you won't be relenting until you've wrestled it to the ground..... and gotten it all bound up in a space dry dock! ;p

everybody knows that.
but now I understand why you had to clamp that brave ship into iron:
It wanted to escape from all the glowing lightings!

Ya just keep hammerin' 'em out! Great POV and lighting - you'd have driven the Great Bird to drink with how rarely you stick to the 'standard' plane - and we're all better off for it ;)

No,no,no, I didn't mean it like THAT!! I was complimenting you on pairing the 2 separate elements that work seamlessly together! It was NOT meant to be a comment about a design that has been so compromised by aesthetic decisions that its bound to spend a lot of time getting maintenance. :D
