V14 Renegade 009

Don’t know how it happened. Somewhere along the lines of doing something similar to my first Renegade model I ever made, this ended up as the result. However I like it because of a few things
1. It does the dual hulls on the back of the saucer as with the original model, while at the same time making it flow
2. It allows me to place the impulse engines in a good spot (they will be similar to the ones on the first pilot episode of Star Trek, “The Cage”).
3. Solves the shuttle bay problem I’ve been running into.
4. Feels more balances in terms of how it looks compared to every other version of the Renegade.

Taking some time off from the main ship to remake the buggy I did a while a back. Inserted is a very crude drawing of what I’m doing with the buggy. that large block of white on the back is the area I’m going to cut out. Also ignore the biped feet sticking out of the front. Forgot to fix his legs. Still working on the delivery system.

Working on how the bussard is going to look. Still tweaking the idea. On the right is how it looks underneath. Dome hidden for clarity. Really need to rework the section between the warp coils and the large tanks behind the bussard. Opted to make those lights behind the dome the same color since the red/green/purple/other color idea wasn’t going to well.

STXII Thoughts

I’ve been throwing this idea around in my head ever since I’ve been analyzing the trailers and I think I have an idea about the movie. I know the villain is not Khan, but from what I see in the trailer is that is most likely an augment and/or connected to the Eugenics wars, and the family he is referring to is other augments. And the scene where Spock’s hand is on the window with another hand on the other side suggests that the villain will most likely try to connect with Spock because of some similarities they share regarding family. Also I’m interested in the ship that is crashing into the water, probably caused by the film’s villain. It hints at a design almost TMPish. Another thing is that we see Klingons, but they are wearing masks, which leads me to believe that these are the human-looking version of the Klingons and they wear the masks because they hate how they look and want to change it (result of events in ST:E) and they wear the masks as a reminder of what they are or something. From what I’ve read the villain is on Qo’noS and Kirk and company are after him, so I assume that the villain was forced to do genetic experiments for the Klingons to reverse the what happend to the human looking Klingons. The memorial service seen is most likely for either the ship that crashed into the water or the attack at the Starfleet meeting.
