    Star Trek Guard (Story + Art)

    So.....

    Long story short, read this link:
    https://renegadeinitiative.wordpress...new-beginning/
    (Personal stuff comment on the blog, not here.)

    It contains a long post of what I'm doing at the moment. There's a lot in there and a majority does not need to clog this thread. Since there will be a lot for this story, picture and writing wise, I decided it's own thread would be necessary. The other thread will be just for other unrelated Trek stuff.

    Also makes this next picture and description easier to understand where it is coming from. So without further ado (a due?)....

    STAR TREK GUARD 2017

    Some info and stuff about the interior of the USS Sampson...



    Oh yea. Since I started writing my story, I decided the Sampson will have a larger role so she needed to be rebuilt. Several of my designs are also due for an update and I'm working to keep things consistent across them (i.e. same size windows, airlocks, decks of 3.5 meters, etc.).

    Originally she was suppose to only be seen in the prologue, but I decided I wanted to keep her around a bit longer. Her back story is still mostly intact (built during the Felgoth Crisis, command by then-Captain Russel Isodor, who is now in charge of the Guard and at the rank of Admiral). The prologue opens up with her current captain, Andres Trector, who took over for Admiral Isodor years earlier. The planet they are in orbit of is a familiar one, one you won't be expecting, and will touch on an issue I think is important and relates to today.

    EDIT: Amendment. Since I've been rethinking how ranks and such work in the Guard, Andres won't be the rank of Captain and instead will be at the rank of Commander. He will still be the highest ranking officer aboard the ship, but since the Guard is more citizen militia orientated, Starfleet officers with the rank of captain and above will still take charge in most situations if it is necessary. Isodor will have one of the higher ranks (undecided if Admiral will be highest rank or something along the lines of Commodore), but will still be lower than Starfleet's highest ranks.

    The Guard ships answer to the government of the world it is assigned to rather than the Federation as a whole, but will have a bit more say in final decisions. There will be very few instances where they 'outrank' the local government. Also Guard ships are made up of vessels from the Federation member worlds, so it won't be just Starfleet-type designs only, though there will be some mixed technology ships (Starfleet-type ships with Vulcan warp rings). The Guard is also more for worlds who can't maintain a stable space Navy, so they are very unlikely to be around Earth, Andoria, Vulcan, or Tellar Prime to name a few as they all have capable fleets (obviously).

    There are some other things, but it's late. Sleep time...

    Starterd work on texturing the pylons. Probably may end up redoing the UVs though....

    More work on textures. RCS thrusters installed. Still need to work on the intercoolers, UV map a few of the grey sections, and work on the internal mechanism of the bussards.

    So a quick look at the Guard fleet, comprised of ships I've designed over the years (some I've posted before, others I haven't).
    They are all going to be redone so there will be consistency between them (window sizes, deck height, etc.).
    The ones that say "-type" don't have a name yet.
    Stovas is there even though she isn't a Guard vessel (privately owned by Glenn Stovas).

    New design. Someone will probably bitch about the bussard location but don't give a ****.

    Wow, very original design!

    I actually love the idea to have the bussards there instead of on the saucer as in the Steamrunner, it looks much cleaner this way in my opinion, and it respects more the original idea of nacelles as dangerous parts which have to be away from the living areas.

    Yea I figure they are far back enough to not pose a danger to the rest of the ship, plus the low profile of the ship means they can still operate efficiently without having full line of sight forward.

    So when I made this ship, I couldn't think of a name while saving the file. So, I typed the word "Toch" thinking I completely made up the word. Apparently it's an actual name belonging to several people. So I choose one from the list that I felt was most appropriate for this ship:

    Okay I only got a little bit done today. Worked on the endcaps a bit, basing them off the Daedalus-class (these ships are suppose to be set in the year 2245). Also added some sensor dish/dome things on the bottom of the saucer, an idea I borrowed from my Watcher-class design. Not seen in these renders I actually slightly lengthened the connection between the front of the nacelles by 3 meters. Haven't decided if I want to hide the inter coolers like the Daedalus, have only the insides ones exposed, or have a style similar to the NX. Also need to decide what to do with that aft pod. It's really only there to balance out the design, but I figure it might have some functionality with the warp nacelles, maybe help with the warp bubble or some technobabble. Also to note is that because Guard ships are small, they will have visible escape pods or at least some sort of indication of where they are.

    Bit more done. Built interior components for the bussards. Added a sort of sloped cover to the end caps.Quick mock up of intercoolers.

    So since I last update this:
    -New deflector housing
    -Worked on the AWACs-type module
    -Spread out the nacelles a bit to balance it
    -relocated the "laser banks" so that they are on the bottom of the saucer (laser will be used as an acronym because you know how the military loves its acronyms)




    -This ship has 3 decks
