Draconis Station by Drell-7 Draconis Station by Drell-7
The U.S.S. Phobos, by Lt. Kevin Riley might just be the the most well-made and designed of any Trek Fan designed ship from TMP era. Its a update of the FASA Locknar class ship, and it is a real beauty, and a pleasure to light and compose. I've learned a lot from this model which I hope to use in future projects.
I've teamed the Phobos up with Rick "Hobbs" Snider's beautiful Regula One model, which I'm using here as Draconis Station, positioned to observe the Phi Draconis nova remnant. Far ultraviolet radiation from the remnant causes the nebula it threw off to fluoresce in the near ultraviolet and violet regions of the visible spectrum.

Thanks for taking a look!

That is one gorgeous design. I am looking for a design like this to use as the centerpiece of my fan series which I am writing now. Can you put me in touch with Lt. Kevin Riley?

A great ship--and a great 3-D painting of it! It looks like a pre-production painting from TMP!

Sweet looking ship! It would be great if this were to appear in a future film or TV series.

The back of the saucer between the hulls seems to be shorter than the rest of it...

Yep, there's a cut out back there, between the 2 lower hulls. That's where the hangar is located. The impulse drives are at the ends of hulls, like the Akira.

It's originally a Max model, converted to Light Wave. (with lots of mesh tweaking and texture replacement) by Matthew Christou and the super-talented Fabio Passaro. I was thinking it looked a little model-box ish, but I like the angle and palette.
