The first test image of the new Antares class model I'm working on. The backsides of the nacelles and part of the lower hull aren't finished yet, but it'll be in Freestuff eventually.
Built in Hexagon, rendered in Poser 7, background by NASA.

Over a decade ago, an on-line friend and I concocted a Trek parody taking place aboard a freighter. At that time we opted for a "unique" design, but in retrospect, the Antares class would have been well suited. I wonder if anyone had the bright idea to make the "cargo drones" from "More Tribbles, More Troubles" into manned vessels (before the Remastered release went that route)? I suspect more fans would have opted for the "Huron" that appeared in "The Pirates of Orion". What different or "improved" in this mesh compared to your earlier effort? I still think the older model holds up pretty well. Sincerely, Bill
I didn't really understand uv mapping before, so the textures on the old version were very basic and flat. The new version is much better... aztecing and detailed windows, for example. Plus I took great care to make the proportions as close as I could get them to the large high-rez remastered screencap over on TrekCore. The old version was based off a tiny, fuzzy 320x200 screencap.
