Anything BUT Routine

By RobCaswell
221 Favourites
During a routine check with Maundrian III monitoring outpost, the crew of the Rama is presented with a situation that is anything but routine!


A story without an actual story ;)
It was unintentional, but there's something sort of Berkeyesque about the piece... at least to my eye.

Planet background by GrahamTG w/ textures courtesy of Nasa and Starbase1. Starfield by FrostBo. Archer class scout mesh created by Mark Azevedo - Ship design by Masao Okazaki. Poser/DS conversion and enhancement by Ptrope w/ texture support by me. Asteroid station by SolCommand , enhanced with Trek bits by Ptrope. Matt Jeffries' Space Tug by David Metlesits . Shuttlecraft model by XCalPro.

DAZ Studio render.

This looks like the prototype for the Avenger class, in the Star Trek Online MMO. I like it!!

A much smaller ship, though.

I just so love that rustic nature of that space station!

And intriguing story with a universe of possibilities!!

I was aiming for something in the station that would evoke Matt Jeffries' design work.

Hello. I'm new here, a model builder, and I just want to say how much I admire your stuff. May I have permission to possibly take some of your design ideas, an apply them to some of my existing Trek Models? ...just askin...
RobCaswell's avatar
You wanna model some of my ideas? BE MY GUEST! I'd be more than flattered! I just hope I get to see the results ;)
So do you frequent Starship Modeler?

"Berkeyesque" is a great word to use here, as his art was what I thought of when I first saw this great image. I wondered if you were paying homage to him before I read your comments. Thank you for posting and share this and all your great art.

Wow... I'm flattered it communicated Berkey to you!
I only wish I had half his talent....

I can see the Rama appearing in future "Star Trek" novels set in the "TOS" era.

You DID see my novel series, didn't you?
Phenometron's avatar
No, but I'm gonna give it a shot. :)

Wow. I'm diggin' that.
Like others said, excellent composition and use of color! :D

Thanks. It may not be "photo-realistically accurate", but I like catching the eye with a bold color statement.
