Hello everyone.

Just a brief introduction here may be in order.

Right off, let me state that I'm a Science Fiction fan. Particularly of both the hard science fiction and the older space opera (especially that of the 1940s - 1950s era). In the short story forum I have posted a work of mine that I'm thinking about bringing over here. Deson's Martian story.

In my picture gallery in the ATS Media Site in the Gallery labeled "My Spaceship designs (Fictional)" You'll find a number of spaceship designs that I've created in the past using a 3D graphics program of mine (Bryce 5.5 and Bryce 6.0). You may feel free to use any of the pictures. Feel free to copy them, and resize them to fit as well for your posts. You'll note that some of the designs have 2 pictures. One of them is of a angle view of the ship and the other is what I call a 3 view (Top, front and side views). I figure that the 3 views can be used for what you come up with when you do a scan on a ship for example. I can also do some other artwork to suit as well. For example in another gallery of mine is a pic called "Gas Giant" or something like that. So I can do planets, and planetary surfaces as well. One thing I can't do is do organic beings (people etc). the program is capable of it but I simply don't know how. My apologies on that.

Anyhoo, I figure that I'm most likely to me most active in this thread tossing out ideas, etc.

Since I just got my writer's status today, I've never had the opportunity to meet with pretty much any of you in the past. I hope that we can work well together and I'm looking forwards to it.

I think I'll just leave paphlets laying around at all the pay phones and gas pumps aboard ship, and leave the Space Port to the PROFESSIONAL moonies!

I feel like I'm seriously falling behind.

I'm so sorry guys.


I promise I'll try to catch up later on tonight.

If not, I'll write myself a spectacular demise.

Glad to have you help out, Deson. Any group is always greater than the sum of its membership (or something like that).

Welcome Deson - to the innate chaos that is the background information/ideas thread of our little space opera.

Have you made any ideas as to which ship you'd like to board?

The USS Penelope is currently in space dock and able to take on boarders.


Look forward to seeing you around the thread.

Terribly sorry, but I fear I MUST confine myself to the more conventional "dancing naked around a campfire in the moonlight, chucking bamboo spears at imaginary enemies in the surrounding woods" as the sum total of my religious observations. Are there any woods on the space station?

I think what I'll do at the present is to hold off on joining a crew at this point. What I will do is offer my services concerning artwork or what have you and once I'm familiar with things toss around some ideas here.

No sense jumping into the pool without a nice hot steam bath and a shower first, eh?

Screen writers and set designers aren't actors either, usually.

Folks, you gotta look through Deson's space ship designs at Desons Space ship Designs

They look pretty phenomenal to me. I'm already eyeballing the Civ2 Space Station as a replacement for the clunky old L2 Station I've been using. I see possibilities for fighters and shuttlecraft there too, and freighters and... well, you just gotta see 'em.

Deson those are very good. Will you be designing things by request?

Slayer awesome post. I love all the visuals and graphic's very creative.

Stars for both you.

I appreciate the direct link so that others can look at the various designs etc. Concerning the Civ2 station those 5 cages (so to speak) at the top are space docks. 4 Medium (cruiser size) and one large (Battleship). I've just uploaded a somewhat washed out pic of the lower communications array for the Civ 2 station. That, well, almost squiggly looking stuff? That was supposed to be the remains of it's original asteroid base when the station was built. Since I still have the file for this I can re-render it with a diffrent lighting scheme.

Thinking of stations, if you look at the Civ1 station. At the top by the space dock is a Civ1 Cruiser for scale leaving space dock.

If you want a fighter, sure I can work on one no problem. Atmospheric capable? Non Atmospheric? Let me know.


Cindymars,
Yes, I can make things to spec (so to speak) However due to limitations on my knowledge and skill, I can't really do living creatures or people. The Software that I use (Bryce) has a separate sub program for working with that and I simply don't know how to use it. But yeah, let me know what you want and I can at least give it a try.

I can't make any guarantees, but I promise that I can give it a shot.

Enjoyed the imaginative work you did on your media. Look forward to getting to know you better Deson


Could you build me an onboard hoover craft?

A onboard Hover craft? I'm guessing for usage on the ship itself to get around? Sure I think I can do that. But I'll need to ask some questions though.

1) How many people capacity?

2) I haven't read the thread fully, have you people decided on a basic shape for yourselves? That will help me envision what the seats would look like for example.

3) Will this be running along designated areas of the ship? Like a subway for example(special areas) , or something that cruises in the halls (Gang way!!)?

4) cargo capacity? Or a separate design for cargo? I can do a people mover design and a separate design for cargo no problem.

Deson you have some great ideas and I am REALLY looking forward to your contributions.

The ship itself is very large and to get around fast it would be convenient as a one to two person craft, however I am the ships med. and it would be nice to have special order gurneys which I can transport people from around the ship or even move them through out the Recovery Bay(Sickbay)

Cargo Pods would be interesting for collecting samples while on planets and of course our individual space Craft for when yydryl needs to stay docked in space and we need to travel to the planets. Two seperate requests I know. It would be intersting to see the idea specs for a system which several passengers could travel through the corridors at a rapid pace, like one built along the wall...

The Opera thread freezes my computer at home. ?????????

I am ready to post again. I will in the morning.

PS: CM is leaving the bar.

Hey Des would you consider playing a minor crewman that serves a drink now and then?

Until later when you may want a more active character or develop that one further?


Goodnight!

Also I need some bios on crew members, seems you want to basically write your own so either here or in u2u is fine with me along with a picture.

Also cindymars, I will have to meet with you very soon so I can get some data on you, we will do that on the story. I will ask you to come to the RB where your energy signatures are going to amaze me, I will use crystals that are going to light up when they are near you.

Whisper, that song goes more like, "Blame it all on my roots , I showed up in boots, and ruined your black tie affair, last one to know, last one to show I was the last one you thought yould see there"...

You know the one "I got friends, in low places".
