Chandley for Poser updated by intrepid1708 Chandley for Poser updated by intrepid1708
USS Chandley converted for Poser. Need a better texture map but still looks pretty good. If you make a nice map let me know. I missed some of the texture files in the zip. Sorry

Have you tried using specular maps for the blue glow in the warp gondolas btw?

No, I don't like the next gen thing of the engines glowing when not at warp as they did not do that in the movies or TOS so any of the pictures I have done with the Federation ships I darken out the glow on them and just have the blue caps on top the mains and impulse glow. I am also just learning how to use specular maps and not very good with them yet and need some help there. :)

From FASA's classic Tactical Starship Combat Simulator Game:

"Chandley Class XI Frigate
NOTES: After the conclusion of the Four Years War, Star Fleet Command initiated the Strategic Forces Survey to evaluate every major operation of the war, from its conception to its final outcome. All aspects of these operations, starting with the initial planning stages, to the deployment of forces, their use during the operation, and the after-action requirements of those forces, were evaluated. The results of this survey have directly influenced plans made by Star Fleet Command ever since.
One of the weaknesses identified by the survey was that Star Fleet needed combat vessels carrying boarding parties or prize crews so that it could follow up a successful campaign with rapid and decisive blows against a retreating or routed enemy. Star Fleet warships did not carry marine assault teams, and, therefore, they were unable to board and capture enemy vessels or outposts. In many operations, Star Fleet vessels were held back so that their combined boarding groups could take control of disabled enemy vessels or outposts; this caused lengthy delays in follow-up operations and allowed the enemy to recover. To take enemy outposts, assault ships were called in, frequently a poor choice because they were slow, vulnerable, and usually carried too many troops for small operations. To solve this problem, Star Fleet began developing the frigate class of ships to carry marines trained to board hostile vessels and complexes. Of the several different ships with this design, the most impressive is the Chandley Class frigate.
On Stardate 2/1612, the USS Chandley, the first of this prestigious line of vessels, was commissioned. The Chandley not only met the requirements of being a deep-space fighting vessel but also could beam its 250 marines in less than four minutes. With this vessel, Star Fleet had the ability to follow up combat more efficiently. The Chandley's large, wing-like assembly houses the company of marines, their equipment, training areas, shuttlebay, and the combat transporters needed. The marines are billeted by platoons, with each platoon having its own spacious training, mess, dormitory, and recreation areas. The training areas, located in the central core of the wing structures, are made up of modules that may be positioned to resemble the interior of enemy ships and installations, allowing assault teams to familiarize themselves with their intended operation area; this training technique is largely responsible for the high success rate in boarding actions. The training areas are also used for physical training and firing ranges. Each platoon has a recreation area containing a swimming pool, gymnasium, gravball chamber, and complete health facilities; these facilities are largely responsible for the notable successes enjoyed by marine sports teams."

Very cool! Thanks for adding in her FASA data. :D

Makes me wonder just what the deck plans looked like for this ship and if they did a Next Generation like version.

The Chandley Class, while often used by Fandom crews, was never used in the series or movies. It was a pure FASA product, the RPG company that had the ST liscense for a couple of years.

Yea I know, I have the games but I still can wonder about the deck plans since FASA did make some for the a few ships in their Star Trek RPG.

There is a rather uncanny similarity between the Lokanr Class Frigate and the NX-01Enerprise from the Star Trek Enterprise series. Did Paramount borrow the design a little from FASA? So who’s to say what the imagination of the fans would come up with for a possible Next Generation Era version of this ship for fan fiction work. Maybe it was replaced by one we did see in the films shows.

Yeah the similiarities between the NX-01 and the Akira Class are even worse. Still I am pretty sure there are no deckplans for the Chandley unfortunatly.

I am a fan of the Andorian designs myself. The Andor and Thufir Class, and the Northhampton Class.

Love the Northampton one over the others since it has a wicked looking front view. All 3 of those ship recognition manuals had some pretty cool ships.

Awesome!

I think you have the same Chandley model from Battle Commander I got converted by Vagabond Elf on DAZ Studio forums. Is it missing the surface for the front of the upper wing sections? At least you got yours textured, I still have to try to do something like that on mine.

I just wish someone would make a full Poser/DAZ Studio version of this ship and the Klingon D-10. There are a lot of cool ships on Battle Commander and Battle Clinic that should be made.

No, this version is of the later game model which had the shuttle bays in the upper wing and the front areas are open to the bay doors. It's converted from Bridge Commander and it converted in great shape. No missing surfaces.

It took me until now (after reading your posting at the DAZ Studio forums) to realize this was a downloadable item and not just a render, sorry. I’m still not up to speed on the freebies you can download here at DA…

Thanks!

If you have downloaded it you might want to re-download it. I missed a few textures that are for the light glows. I did not know about the downloads here till I saw some on DAZ's forums so I understand. This is a nice model but it needs some better textures. I'm not that good with doing the patterns on the movie ships.

I'll get the updated version in a second. Thanks for the heads up on the update.

Don't sell yourself short, you did great. Will you try and do any other ships?

I have done many of them even the ArkRoyal Carrier and one of the Battleships. The textures for the Chandley are better than what they have. I will set the up in a zip and post them as soon as I can.

Sounds great. You can never have to many Star Trek ships, especially the ones that you didn’t see in the films and Next Generation era shows.

Let me know if you ever get a Klingon D-10 ever converted or know of someone who has. Besides the Chandley its on the top of my wish list of ships.

Then maybe I do have the same ship. I dint know about the newer game model. The last time I saw the ship was way back with FASA’s Star Trek Ship Combat Simulator, the one with the paper map and cardboard cutouts with pictures on them for ships (or miniatures if you had them).

Some of the early models had the upper levels behind the bridge closed off but in later versions from FASA's game it was opened up and a upper shuttle bay on each side was added for the marines.

It does make sort of sense that they would make a bigger shuttle hanger for all the troops but looking at it the ship you have to wonder how much of the ship was lost to put in the shuttle bays. They could have just left the front wing structure the same way it was before but added several shuttle bay doors like how it looks from the rear. Just my 2 cents on the new look. Guess I’m just old school and prefer the old style. Lol.

Not sure. Think they are more in the lower tips of the wings and it's not cut in much but would guess them drop down to the lower stern hangers. Might just be to give a quick drop with the front, aft and lower doors. But the very first one was open all the way through and then the second book they closed it off. This is the last or third version.

I have always wanted to see deck plans of this ship since I first saw it in the Federation Ship Recognition Manual.

Same here. Was one of the first ships I commanded in the FASA game. Took out three D-7s with it but had to make it to a starbase with one of the warp engines gone but I won. :)
