Star Trek Constitution Rebuild Part 5

I have finished my rework/rebooted Constitution class, as of today I am finished other designs I want to work on, just to recap, this is larger then the official scale of the Connie, I had to enlarge it to address so many issues, this is 1311.5 ft long or 399.7 meters, I posted basic image here before, for these I used Ali Ries wonderful and scenic space art with permission for these WIP images..

I hope you like the design.

Star Trek: Edge of the Federation

“Edge of the Federation”


I dusted of my U.S.S. Enterprise model and with a nice background image by dadrian on deviantart. A much needed break from my own designing, my appreciation for concept artists has grown to such heights, how the likes of Syd Mead, Doug Drexler, Rick Sternbach, do it I cannot say.. But I applaud their work all the more.

Blake´s 7: Liberator DSV

Liberator


Deep Space Vessel

In 1978 a new British science fiction series aired on BBC 1 called Blake´s 7 and like Star Trek was very popular with science fiction fans. another common theme with Star Trek is it had a very small budget and at times looked it, but that did not detract from the top story and character development of the two main men, Blake and Avon.

The star of the show was also the Liberator, I loved the design from the moment I saw it on my TV screen back in 1978, watching with my father who had called me into the living room to watch. I liked Blake and Avon as they battled over control of the crew as they entered a guerrilla war with the Federation (what? the federation, they are the good guys in Star Trek, what happened? I remember thinking, ah innocence) the lovely Jenna, the cowardly Vila, the powerful Olag, the insightful Cally and the ships interactive computer Zen.

Worst part in the series was the destruction of the Liberator, as legend would have it, the series was not to be taken up again and so the ship was destroyed in a climatic end, once the show was renewed enter the Scorpio nice design or at least interesting, but no Liberator.

Again a design I like a lot, It was destroyed in the 3 season as far as I remember and I lost interest in the show from that point on and I was sorry that the actors playing Blake and Jenna left the show and it stopped working for me even then, as Avon needed Blake for the character to work.

Why has there been no fan film made based on Blake’s 7, I think it would be a lot easier than Star Trek
