Spent a few hours today working on the texture for the saucer. And yes I rebuilt the bridge and Deck 2. They ended up being twice the size than originally intended. Adding details around the ship and also rebuilding the secondary hull.
One of the hardest things about designing Star Trek Renegade is the fact the movie is set during the Original Series era, which means everything has got a retro vibe to it. Although nostalgic, it is hard for people, especially the newer generation, to take a story seriously if it is hopelessly locked in an era long considered old fashioned. As much as I love the feel of the original Star Trek, I understand that sometimes we have to let go of what we like and take bold steps to create a world we can believe in. I have been doing a lot of thinking and realized that the way I have the story written so far offers a simple solution to my current problem while keeping a bit of nostalgia as well. Stay tuned as more details will come in the future.
