Interests
I got a flash of ambition over the weekend as I got into the finishing stages of working on my girlfriend's 4.0 Jeep engine.  It is crazy what inspires my artwork or what inspires me to change it.  As of right now, I am in the process of making more refined and detailed UV maps for my Lexington class battlecarrier.  If all goes well, I will use the new object files (that I am doing as individual parts: engines, Stellar Warp nacelles, PHELAC turret, I-Field generator, etc.) to redo ALL of the ships of that type.  If I like how they come out, I will begin the process of redoing ALL of the UV maps of my ships. :)

A LIMERICK HISTORY OF SCIENCE FICTION
by Mike Wadsworth Resnick

1926
At the start, Hugo brought out _Amazing_,
In spite of some serious hazing
From lawyers and writers.
(It seems that the blighters Sought cash for their written star-gazing).

1939
John Campbell then surveyed the field, And said,
"Now this drivel must yield.
I shall draw a fine line With writers like Heinlein,
And think of the power I'll wield!"

1949
Tony Boucher at once saw the light,
And he said (sounding quite erudite):
"I don't give a fig
If the concept is big --
_My_ authors must know how to write!"

1950
Then Horace Gold quickly appeared,
And he wasn't the failure we'd feared,
_Galaxy_ was afire
With wit and satire --
And the poorer stuff all disappeared.

1964
Then along came Mike Moorcock, who said:
"SF is most certainly dead.
Who wants to re-hash
Even more of this trash?
I'll give them the New Wave instead."

1978
Judy-Lynn del Rey said,
"Lester, Our readers will never dig Bester,
But with cute fuzzy robots
There's no ifs and no buts,
You'll be a most happy investor."

1984
A mirror shade crowd made the scene,
And said, looking hungry and lean,
"With punks made of cyber,
And no moral fiber,
We'll sweep the bestseller list clean."

1996
When Lucas from college departed,
His vision to film was imparted;
The books have been pleasant,
But quite adolescent --
And now we're right back where we started.

Description/Overview:
          (HBR-01K KABUTO)
         The HBR-01K “Kabuto” model of heavy battle robot was built off the second design submitted to the EFSM in 2076 AD. A new company founded on Pallas called StarDragoon-Maxinger made that design. This newly founded manufacturer had built a mecha that was nearly identical to the SkyKing-GrandJäger design. This was no accident as members of their design team were the ones who founded the new company after a falling-out between some of the developers and the machine fabrication team. The StarDragoon-Maxinger design had initially been beaten by the SkyKing-GrandJäger design due the cost of their HBR. However, General Walsh, at the behest of Major Kabuto Tokugawa of the 7th Special Forces Mechanized Unit, lobbied for the StarDragoon-Maxinger model due to its increased firepower and usefulness as a “command mecha”. Major Kabuto Tokugawa’s persistent efforts garnered StarDragoon-Maxinger their contract to build the machine.In honor of his efforts, the design team at StarDragoon-Maxinger named the battle robot after him.
         The HBR-01K was essentially the same battle robot as the HBR-01D except for its sensors and weapons. The StarDragoon-Maxinger team had emphasized the use of slug-throwing weapons over energy weapons for the fixed mounts on the battle robot due to the possibility of the UN forces using alien mecha from Alpha Centauri. It was thought that the UN has specimens of alien mecha types similar to those that were recovered from the Posse Comitatus after the EFR had salvaged it from the Ross Sea where it crashed. The alien A.G.A.R.-01 (Armored Ground Assault Robot type one) and B.S.-01 (Battlesuit type one) both used energy-resistant armor plating. This meant that if the EFSM forces encountered alien units, piloted by UN personnel, on Mars they could find themselves at a great disadvantage.
         The HBR-01K used three MMI SRM-01-G (ground type) short-range missile launchers instead of only two. The addition of this third launcher was to increase the anti-tank capabilities of the battle robot without the need for a more expensive weapon system. The SRM-01G was plentiful as was the missiles for it.
         The MMI RFL-1.5LC remained unchanged and was used in exactly the same manner as on the HBR-01D model.
         The primary weapon of the HBR-01K was the Pallas Arms RC-35-6 six-barrel Gatling rail cannon. This weapon system was an extension of the Norking RCR-35 35-millimeter rail cannon rifle gunpod used by the HBR-01D. The RC-35-6 had a much higher rate of fire than the gunpod weapon. However, the six-barrel weapon suffered from a limited field of fire, though any mecha caught within its kill-zone was almost certain to be heavily damaged or destroyed. This weapon’s high rate of fire required the use of an external ammo drum. This drum held 6000 rounds of 35-millimeter rail cannon ammunition giving the weapon the ability to fire up to one hundred of the sixty round bursts. One such burst could riddle a UN Type-55 heavy tank into metallic confetti.
         The next of the HBR-01K’s primary weapons was the SkyKing-GrandJäger SG-EMPAC-28 electromagnetic particle accelerator cannon gunpod. This gunpod was designed for use against UN capital ships and assault MATs. It was a deadly weapon system capable of very high rates of fire for an EMPAC weapon. This rate of fire was due to the weapon’s use of a clutch-enhanced nuclear battery which was actually a drum-shaped e-clip located on the top of the gunpod. In theory, if the energy-clip was depleted, the HBR-01K pilot could “reload” the gunpod with a fresh one. However, that feature was never used on the HBR-01K due to the high cost of the nuclear battery. It was simply too expensive to discard during combat. Many SG-EMPAC-28s had their “ejection” systems disabled prior to the mecha’s launch in order to prevent pilot’s from jettisoning a nuclear battery to use a new one once theirs was depleted (not that a spare was even loaded onto the mecha).
         The HBR-01K’s final weapon was its proximal one, the WPM-2 Warptron Plasma Mace. This plasma weapon was slightly more powerful then Warptron’s plasma axe used on the HBR-01D and half the weight of the axe. Like the plasma axe, the plasma mace was a devastatingly powerful weapon that could smash most UN mecha with a single hit and inflict heavy damage to space warships. The mace was stored on either hip of the HBR-01K via its U-shaped magnetic plate; once energized, this plate would hold the mace in place as if it were welded to the mecha.
         Like the HBR-01D, the HBR-01K used a medium combat shield mounted on its left shoulder as its only defensive weapon.
         The HBR-01K used the same antigravity inertia maneuvering system as the HBR-01D, and thus had the same performance in space as its sister battle robot. The HBR-01K suffered from the same speed and altitude restrictions as the HBR-01D due to its non-aerodynamic design.
         The EFSM constructed 375 HBR-01K battle robots for the commanders of their Special Operations units. During the 1st Interplanetary War, there was normally only one HBR-01K for every twenty HBR-01Ds. At wars end, only sixty-three HBR-01Ks were left, all of which were in the hands of the EFSM forces on Saturn, which eventually became the Neo-Hebrews of Saturn. After the war, the Neo-Hebrews put the HBR-01K back into production and produced an additional 3750 units for their planetary defense forces. These mecha stayed in service up until the end of the 3rd Interplanetary War.

John Eaves Concept:
johneaves.files.wordpress.com/…

This model has not been UV-mapped or textured properly yet.
Current textures are for demonstration of shading, contours, and general design of this ship.
This configuration is also tentative and may be altered as the client requests.
Please note that this image will be updated as I make alterations and add the final UV-Mapping and actual textures.

UPDATE ONE

Added photon torpedoes, and additional phaser banks.
Also added Impulse crystal in the style of Star Trek Online's Odyssey class cruisers.
"Rounded" the ship overall and replaced the Carnedas style of square pylons with the Hestia class type from Star Trek Online.
Still using test-textures for this draft of the ship.

UPDATE TWO

Finished the UP-Mapping, window Alpha-Masks, and texturing of the saucer section.
Added the four vernier control thruster packs.
Added four nav lights.
Finished the top Navigational Deflector (that sucked........really sucked as the angle made getting the glow from the dish very difficult).
I used the Carnedas style of hull coloring and both 2.5 meter size windows (for crew quarters) and 4 meter size windows (for observation decks and officer quarters).  I took the window sizes from the Galaxy class.  I also used the Sovereign class' style of life-boats only with the grayish-white color of those found on the Intrepid class.
If the client is satisfied the saucer is done and I will move on to the secondary hull.

UPDATE 2.5
Fixed window alpha-mask.  The dark-gray was bleeding into the ones in those areas of the saucer.

USS MacArthur Data Sheet
The Phase-III version of the constitution class using the LN-72 warp engines, and a "stealth" color scheme for space combat.
The MacArthur class was built after the Excalibur class USS MacArthur engaged what her captain thought was a trio of D-7 battlecruisers in 2073.  Unfortunately for the USS MacArthur the ships were K'Tinga class and were thus superior to the Excalibur class (Phase-I) Constitution type of advanced cruisers.  The out classed USS MacArthur was badly damaged during the fray and was forced to retreat from the system along the Neutral Zone that she engaged the three K'Tinga class warships.  After the encounter, Starfleet chose to upgrade the USS MacArthur to the Phase-II (Enterprise type from the Motion Picture), however, the V'Ger incident exposed some of the shortcomings of the Phase-II refit and thus a Phase-III plan was put into action.  The result was the MacArthur class of 2076.

Note:
The LN-72 Warp Engine design comes from the USS Ingram class which is an Excelsior class variant.
