Models by me
DISCLAIMER: Asteroids (c) Atari.
This is one of my favorite episodes...
The we knew better but had to try anyway moments...
I'd Highly recommend it
Its a season 3 episode called "Booby Trap"
A routine survey of an asteroid belt turns deadly for the crew of the Enterprise when they stumbled on an old booby trap left for an ancient enemy...
In fact I'd recommend all of season 3. I think its one of the best out of the whole series...
then from a safe distance just overload that trap so it no longer works by firing torpedo's into it.
Ka-BLAM! Look out!
Amazing as always... I'm just curious, being as I don't know the first thing about 3D art, unlike you and probably most of your other watchers commenting here... how do you make these models? Do you just start from scratch and build them from thousands of little 3D shapes in a computer program you use, or what? Just wondering... your ships are very beautiful!
I had an amazing teacher, , who has died last year, a great loss for me and the 3D community here on DevArt. He showed me not just the basics, but the "philosophy" behind the thing.
I also chewed through a 20 hours long tutorial video to make the Serenity from Firefly. That also taught me many tricks I am using.
But, like I said, I am far, far away from being a pro. I'm an enthusiastic amateour.
Rad trouble coming soon,son
Heh. When it first aired, I shook my head. It takes the Ent-D crew something like 10 or 12 hours to figure a way out... right up to the point where the deadly radiation is about to a) deplete their power and b) microwave them alive. The "finest crew in Starfleet" takes that long to find a way out. Right. Sure.
So, I described the whole situation to my brother, who hadn't seen the show or heard anything about it. He's as much a 'Trek' fan as I am. We've also done a lot of Trek RPG over the years...
He took all of five seconds to propose the solution that takes Picard, Geordie & co. 12 hours 'on screen'. I really am not making this up!
