This is a shot of a Deep Space Nine-style excelsior (hint: the nacelles glow) in orbit over Utopia Planitia. The orbital dock seen here is a model I did of a station briefly glimpsed at in the Star Trek Voyager episode Relativity. I didn’t have much reference material at the time, and it’s hard to believe but the model is now just over 10 years old! Here is a closer shot of it (Click for a larger version):
I’ll put this up for download if there is enough interest in it.
The Excelsior class ship is however, not entirely my own – it was originally Eric Peterson’s mesh which you can get hold of here. I believe Matt Allen and Rob Willson also did some rework of it, and then I have taken it and done some re-modelling and retexturing of it (Phew!). However my modifications were light and its still a great mesh to use.
Oh, and if I don’t speak to any of you before – Merry Christmas!
