LOVE this one (and I love the film) Amazing work, I know how hard is to devise interior ship and you made amazing work. Almost 60 years old design and still I would cut one of my fingers to fly away in this beuty  ;)

Thanks, I only actually created the specification & history text plus the background, the internals were created by Shane Johnson and Orthos by :icondragonpyper:, either way I thank you :-)

So are you doing obscure sci-fi ships? If so - brilliant!

This is rather excellent :D Where did you get the information from?

If made up - WOW!!

I've been wanting to do THIS one for ages - this actually was the first sensibly designed starship in Sci-Fi history, AND an inspiration for Star Trek amongst others!!
The information was gleaned from Wikipedia in parts, from what we all hear/saw in the movie - and a LOT of sitting down and working out HOW this ship would work - all I had to go on was its diameter (51 meters) the rest was through careful measuring - and a LOT of imagination!!

Reading this has inspired me to do that version of the Vengeance - I praise efforts like that - and in this there are a lot of things I did not know - like the disintergrator batteries were pop up units!!

WOW!!

Well done :D
