STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION Era Ship

Posted in Sci-Fi, Star Trek with tags , , , on 21/01/2012 by patrickivan

This is my first real attempt at a next generation era ship. The main reason being all the curves and getting everything to blend. So I started with a small runnabout type ship. Something with a moderate range, decent multi-tasking capabilities, modestely comfortable for a small crew, and fast.

I really did want to see more of TNG style ships but alas, they went the way of the E-E after the D was destroyed. It was a shame, but oh well…

Here’s today’s work.

A little more progress on the warp nacelles. Very curvy. This is taking a lot more time.

Update: 27/01/2012

The curved consoles with chairs are inspired from one of Probert’s concept bridges for the E-D.

Posted in Humour with tags , , , , , , , on 11/01/2012 by patrickivan

Ford neighbours reported seeing the Hamburgler skulking around the Ford house in Etobicoke today. The Toronto Police Services responded swiftly but reported to only find Mayor McCheese sitting on the couch watching TV.

Mayor McCheese could not be reached for comment.

 

UPDATE: HAMBURGLER ARRESTED AND UNMASKED!

Mayor McCheese made sure that no ONE stole his burgers! Not on his watch and certainly not from his McDonalds!
