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...

Well, from one ship lovin' trekkie (or trekker) to another... my hat's off to you my friend!
Now to the work. Its beyond words. I love it. I've been studying the work you've
done in each vessel...absolutely incredible. I do have one question I'm embarrassed
(as a good ship of the line man) to ask. I'm familiar with most of the ships in your
piece, but I don't recognize the ship just below the Ptolemy Class tug?

Thank you very much for the kind words.

That ship is an abandoned concept for a refit Pallada class, it's been rendered "non-canon" now :D

I feel out of touch now...Pallada class? Guess I've been away
from ex-astris-scientia for too long. Thanks a bunch!

My original design. My ship, the USS Polaris belongs to this class. Light cruiser built for manouverability, small, fast, tough as nails.

wow! I'm simply overwhelmed by the number of models you have been building so far. I'm a great Star Trek fan myself - however I've never built a model. Don't now really why... but there we are.
So it is a pleasure watching all your models :)
Keep up the great work!!

As I do not use other people's models, I have to build everything myself.
