The Buddy System by Rob-Caswell The Buddy System by Rob-Caswell
I kind of developed a reputation for my unconventional angles on known hardware, like the Enterprise, but this view is all too conventional. And that's why I like it. It evokes the view we saw so often in Star Trek: The Animated Series and I have such warm, fuzzy memories of those days. So this is largely an homage to that era... albeit with "contemporary enhancements" as the Enterprise gets some survey assistance from the recently created (our time) Archer class scout, the U.S.S. Rama. A shuttlecraft with some gathered interstellar gas samples circles around to the hanger deck for a landing.

Enterprise model by Aggi (Foundation3D.com) with OBJ translation by Celticarchie. Archer class scout mesh created by Mark Azevedo - www.3dmaz.com. Ship design by Masao Okazaki. Poser/DS conversion and enhancement by Ptrope w/ texture support by Moi. Shuttlecraft by Excaliber Productions. Background by FrostBo [link] . Render by DAZ Studio with Photoshop postwork.

This is such a gorgeous piece of artwork of the Classic TOS Enterprise! The shuttlecraft and U.S.S. Rama really give the Enterprise a grand sense of scale. These really help sell the piece. Awesome art as always!!! :D

Thanks. This one really clicks with me, too. Maybe it's the colors... hardware elements... or both. But it just captures a TOS mood that both seems "right", but I also wish I could have actually seen ;)

I think your comments here are spot on as to why this pic just works so well, and is so evocative. Again, Grand work as always on your part! :D

This reminds me of a scene from the 70's animated series. Nice Work :)

Love this! After all these years TOS is still one of my all-time favorite shows. Great rendition of the Enterprise.
