Cruise Formation by Drell-7 Cruise Formation by Drell-7
The Motion Picture version of the D-7 is another of my favorite Trek designs. Just thought I'd do a beauty shot of a triad. This one has been hanging around on the hard drive for awhile, so I thought I'd let it see the light of day...

Lightwave 8.5

Thanks for taking a look!

Looks great. Like Ptrope, as soon as I saw it, the Klingon theme music started running through my head. :)

Yep. I had it on loop play while I was composing the image! Gotta love Jerry Goldsmith!

Nice Klingons! Not keen on the image's border colour, tho.

thanks! I was trying to pick up on the red lights of the ships. Maybe a greenish would have worked better?

Yeah, that'd be my choice. I think the red lights stand out fine; the green panels could do with bringing out.

Im going to guess that the planet texture you are using is Mars just without color.

It's actually just part of Mars. I used a very high res set of MOLA height data to deform a 1/4 sphere, then painted a gray map for it. ( i think my painting was a little too subtle, though. can't really tell its there... )

I thought I recognized Agyre Planitia just below the top K'Tinga.

Nice battle group. It almost begs the question of whether or not, this was the Klingon battle group that was destroyed by V'ger in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

It certain evokes TMP effectively...even if they didn't track past a dead moon. Convincing light!

A pure terrifying force to be reckon with - shame they were not used much in the years following.

What missed opportunities of this great ship

Yeah, its a brilliant design. I do wish they'd been around more...

Yes - having said that maybe the sequel with the "slightly" adjusted ones may make the impact missed.

BTW Heard you use to do Megatraveller....is that true?

Because I am a massive fan of that!

Yep! I did illos throughout the MegaTraveller period for GDW and Digest Group. Those were fun projects!

Brilliant series - best sci-fi I ever read - and still is.

Its sensible, simple, but makes you think - few sci-fi does.

Its an honour to meet someone who worked on that!

Nifty! Of course, now I hear Jerry Goldsmith's theme in my head, too - but that's okay! (it was the best scene in the movie, IMHO ;)).

Yep. Had it playing while I was doing the image, too! I think you're right about the best scene in the movie--one of the only times in all Trek where the Klingons really feel alien and Very formidable!
