Last Stand by KillaBC Last Stand by KillaBC
The USS Kelvin is attacked by unknown forces by a star after coming out of a black hole.

I haven't had much time for doing much, it's exam season but hopefully I'l be responding at a much more regular basis.

This is amazing...

Wish they'd used TOS designs in the actual movie, don't get me wrong, We still love the new redesigns, but it's ashame they didn't make use of any of the designs that were already there, escpecially when with modern film making technology they could have fleshed them out and presented them in a way the limitations of TOS never could have.

That scene should have looked like this.

I liked the '09 scene, though something different doesn't hurt? :D

Yeah, but I've always wanted to see the TOS ships get some glory with new effects...

Me too though there seems to be the thought that if its a TOS ship it has to look like it's actually been filmed in the 1960's. That's why I like guys who put there own spin on it. Makes it fresh and shows how far ahead these designs actually are.

I noticed that about the "remastered" series. They just replaced the scenes with CGI, without changing the movements, the camera angles, or anything else. I found that seriously annoying.

I would love it if they made a new series set in TOS's timeline, but made the flyby and action sequences dynamic. They actually did that (somewhat) in the Mirror Universe episodes in Enterprise, with the Defiant. I would also like to see ships like the Dreadnoughts in action.

Has anyone ever made an accurate mesh of the U.S.S. Star Empire? It was a TOS ship made by a militaristic faction of Starfleet in the Diane Carey novel, "Dreadnought!". It was based heavily on the Dreadnought's design.

I've never seen the Star Empire before though I am aware of it. It may be worth while doing a bit on internet searching to see. Though there are plenty of Federation class models floating around.

I found a "blueprint" file showing the Star Empire, but they gave it an octagonal primary hull instead of hexagonal, as described in the novel.

Holy crap! How the hell did you do that? I drew the USS Kelvin and it looked like a upside down floating toilet.

I used a 3d model and did a lot of post editing in Photoshop. ;)
