Escort Duty by Drell-7 Escort Duty by Drell-7
The Ranger class Scout U.S.S. Audubon plays mother hen to a convoy of Star Fleet freighters through a region plagued with Orion pirate attacks. Although designed mainly for long-range exploration, the Ranger proved itself admirably capable in the role of escort, with its twin photon torpedo tubes and two phaser banks.

Ptolomy-class by Axeman 3D, Antares by Richmerk. Huron and Ranger by me. Gas Giant by preetiboy.

Rendered in Lightwave 10. Thanks for taking a look!

Did any of ya'll (Rob, AbaKon, etc.  You know the 3d braintrust)  make a FASA Movie era ranger?  Just wondering.  Loved the design ever since the Murder Mystery ST RPG module.  Wish I still had it....lol.

Some of the "rank and file" of the fleet get a little love and care, and it's long overdue!:D

 

I like the plasma-exhaust effect a lot. True, we don't see that on the shows, but then they have ships moving around on the screen. A static render makes it harder to convey speed and motion.

Love the colony/freighter ship.
That one I have seen in books, but not enough render it.

Well, yeah, they did the same to me. I'm hoping the Captain of the Audubon is better at it than I ever was...and also maybe the Orion's field some smaller ships...
