So, how's that Federation TMP starbase coming along?

*waves if off* SHHHHhhhhhhhhHHHhh! >.<

I MIGHT still have the model somewhere - I never even unwrapped it >.< - Honestly, getting the scale of it in the textures was something that I wasn't sure how to do at the time. Probably more comfortable with the idea now.

the SFB C-8/C-9s where even not that inspired as they are only streched hull variants of the C-7 with a new bigger boom and a third engine.  :angel:

Yeah - this is what I'm talkin' about. SFB-itis. Granted I did the same thing for my Klingon fleet - but that's because I only had so much to work with.

Darn. I was hoping that was the big thing you were getting ready to release a while ago. It was big, and it was cool, and hardly anyone's done one satisfactorily. I suppose my next guess would be the doomsday machine. How's THAT going? :P

I took one glance at the SFB ships and dismissed them right away because at a distance all of them look like the D7 design. You can curse FASA all you want, but at least they brought some original and eye-catching variations to the Klingon lineage that looked like legitimate stablemates. I like some of their Federation stuff too.

You shouldn't feel bad about your klink fleet. There is about as much variation in there as the typical Federation fleet- which is all anyone can ask for.

I always liked  the concept of FASA's L7 "Bringer of the Nether World" fast strike cruiser, which was an obvious rip off of the Federation's fast cruiser design by nachelle switching programme that date back into early TOS. I've modelled all of these Federation test bed ships from the various diagrams that exist. All early ones used the round PB-38 and PB-40 type nachelles. Their was also one nachelle switching frigate, the Rapide, which was based on a Burke class frigate saucer. I modelled that prototype in October 2011.

The Feds could never keep a secret from the Klingons for long, just take project Genesis....

I made a version of the L7 years ago but maybe a FoaS take on the design would be interesting.

I've also noticed that there are 3 versions on the D11 "One Wing" cruiser as the original build plus rebuilds / refits are also included in diagrams online.... Another future FoaS project??

 
The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!
