    =Star Trek: Expanding Horizon= A Fan Series WIP

    =Star Trek: Expanding Horizon=


    I would like to introduce Expanding Horizon, a fan series. I was hoping that here I could find some recruits to make this work.

    Basically, this is a LONG TERM PROJECT. This means that it probably won't be able to start for years due to factors such as money, resources, my age... But still, it is a goal which I believe to be achievable so why not start planning now?

    I would appreciate starship design tips and such, so that the ship is immediately recognizable.

    In order to sign up, visit The forum.

    Currently monetary compensation is unavailable because of the fact that Star Trek fan productions can not be sold. I hope that those who are devoted enough to work for the satisfaction of creating an amazing fan series will volunteer their time and effort to create an extraordinary result.

    Schweet. I have a weakness for fan films, especially Trek fan films.

    The saucer is looking good so far, what software are you using?

    Thanks, though I don't know exactly what you're trying to achieve, so I don't know yet if I have any ideas.

    Do you have a drawing or something of what your finished ship is going to look like or are you making it up as you go?

    I'm going by the above general specs, but I am, for the most part, making it up.

    First Internal Test

    Well, don't I feel inferior, I tried my first corridor rendering and this is how it turned out... Well I need more practice and a whole lot more detail. More updates to come.

    While i do think the second version is better then the previous version... Saucer wise.... I didn't see on your forum what the overall ship design is... Would you happen to have a sketch? As for the internal render.... you are correct could use some more textures... though the lighting isn't too bad just needs to be tweeked... Which lighting style are you going for? i.e. Sovereign.. Intrepid...Defiant..Galaxy???
    Hooray I'm Gonna Be Sick!
