Rendezvous by Drell-7 Rendezvous by Drell-7
When it comes to 2001: a space odyssey, I am an unrepentant fanboy. Clarke's cosmic vision and Kubrick's insistence on technological veracity coupled with both men's poetic vistas of time and space have held me in thrall most of my life.

Here is a small tribute, one of those "unseen scenes" as Bowman and Poole arrive on a chartered Orion III Clipper to take up their posts for the orbital check-out of the Discovery.

Lightwave 10, and many thanks to the modelers!

Oh Wow!!!! :D This is SWEET!!! I love the work you and Arcas Art are doing with the 2001/2010 stories! All the art, ideas, and designs are just excellent!! Thanks to you both for doing and sharing these. If only these could have been what was seen on film, but thankfully you too are doing this and getting us all as close as you are on this. :D

nice work, i'm building discovery myself, so far i have a corridor, and i modeled a basic shape of the hull, i think the biggest problem i'm having is modeling detail into the sphere section.

i used alot of nurnies too, so it's getting to be a big model. how many polys is your discovery?

i'll post it next year sometime, it's taking me awhile to get it done.

Ditto.It will always be a classic,along w 2010 i think.The Leonovs AeroBraking w/ Ballutes is always a good watch.[As is the probe going down to investigate Europa.]

Nice! Were the other three astronauts, Kaminski, Hunter and...the other guy (lol) also on there, or were they already in hibernation?

I'm assuming Whitehead, Kaminsky and Hunter were boarded by a medical staff, all ready in Hibernation.

Pretty funny that Pan Am has a monopoly or orbital transfer in 2001 but are all but forgotten today. D'oh!

Breathtaking! Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, and a host of others included, the Discovery has always been one of my most favorite ships in science fiction. Well done and thank you for presenting her here :) :salute:
