End of the Trail

After almost 18 years of distinguished service the U.S.S. Confederation pulls into spacedock to be decommissioned. The last battlewagon and the last of this design style to be retired. Parts of this ship will be used in the construction of the new design of the U.S.S. Excelsior.

An image rendered a few weeks ago, did a little post and put it up.

 I respectfully disagree with the notion of the Confederation being scrapped. I think that even with the Organian Treaty, Starfleet would refit all other Federation class starships like the Star League. They weren't exactly on good terms with the Klingons, after all.

 Now, I could see the Confederation being scrapped in the aftermath of the Khitomer Accords, and those materials being used in the Ambassador.

No more than 5 minutes...Lightwave is pretty powerful if one knows how to wield it! The thing about that is the set up can take from 30 min to a half of a day (trying for that perfect combination of elements, angle, lighting and such)

Very nice. Love the camera distortion and lighting. Cooltastic.

Heh...that's your Poser/Daz lighting setup in Lightwave. I like it too.

Really? My setup? Coolio! Glad you're able to get some utility out of it!

Nice model and BG, although the dock looks a little low res at some parts...

It's the texturing. But of the formats I can use it's the best so
