One year later by thefirstfleet One year later by thefirstfleet
One year... for the Universe, it is nothing. Even for a man, it is almost nothing. Life goes by, people die and are born, some go insane, some see the light. But exactly one year go, on this day, I started my new gallery. I paid for a mistake I have committed, I survived the prosecution that was often unjust.
But I have faith. I had faith in myself, I had faith in you, my friends, and I have faith in Him. And all of this helped me through. As did my Hungarian stubbornness, my love for Star Trek and the need to hone my skills.
The new beginning was humble. One year ago, I was a university student burdened with the upcoming finals. Now I am a computer specialist, assisting the third biggest bank in the whole wide world. And I'm still the Trekkie, too old for his age, sometimes too bitter and forever unyielding.
So, my friends, here on DeviantArt and outside, I thank you for all the help, encoiragement and love you've given me. I'm always trying to be worthy for it.

And for some other people, who forged me anew in the fires of their arrogance, I would like to quote from the beautiful film Papillon: "Hey, you bastards, I'm still here!"




All the models were made by me. All of them. Throughout one single year. With love and lunacy and stubbornness and hope. For me. For you. For those who never stop believing in the underdog...

Just got done watching an episode of Battlestar, the one when the chief builds a new fighter more for and by himself before it became a crew project. They built it, she flew and it restored hope through out the fleet.

Now seeing that it's been a year since you started your new gallery, and managed to power on through all the adversity and bullshit the world has thrown at you and you are still going on strong.

I guess this passed year has left a bigger mark on myself than I thought. I've lost family members, mentors, friends, friends of friends, family of friends, and I almost lost my rank in the martial arts I studied, continuing to be the "underdog" compared to my friends who have all moved on to learn more advanced subjects in my school, to graduate or to come back and show it off, while I'm left behind to eat their dust.

I just wish I had the tenacity and thick skull to do the same as you guys. I salute you Dave. :salute:

I can only give you one advice: fight back. Fight back hard. In most of the cases, the bastards will pummel you down. But with each beating, you'll become stronger and tougher.

Help, encouragement and love, One is never worthy, which is why it is freely given. But striving to be worthy of it shows a strength of character that many lack. Congratulations my friend! Well deserved!

That is a really impressive fleet you have there. Have you any plans to make a model of the NX-clas?

Thank you very much!

Given that I do not count ENT as canon anymore, I'm not planning to build the NX class...

Wow. That's all, just wow. You did more in the last year than I will do in my whole life.

I don't recognize that one between the Reliant and the Dreadnaught.

The little ship is Masao Okazaki's Powhatan class. I adapted it to become the very first Starship Polaris, under the command of Captain Linus Randolph.
