    'cause we all know that Kirk will just fiddle a couple of numbers, transmit them over, and your shields will drop anyways. Photons away!

    [end geekness] Sorry, that's about as much Trek lore as I can muster. The other guys out rank me by a mile. :hehe:

    Back to the mod: I think your final finish is going to be the key to whether or not this is going to look good or great. I'm sure there is a ton of viual resources out there for you to refer to. I'm subscribed! Can't wait to see more progress!

    I had not realized that there were so many of them, I learn something new here every day :D

    Still, the fact that they were reusing an older class kind of bugs me, even though the insides would very likely be very different.

    To be honest the Star Trek timeline would suggest that there was not a whole lot of significant scientific advancement between 2150 and the 24th century. The fact that they treat a 100 year old vessel (though the Saratoga was apparently not one, there still were some featured in the series that should have been) like we would treat a 20 year old car. Sure there are newer and better stereo systems in the newer cars, and they get better gas mileage, but that's about it :p

    Ok, enough of a threadjack. Get back to work, slacker! :D

    Totally ruining the atmosphere, it's because they can't really be bothered to design and make new models, the ammount of model re-use in startreck is amazing, thankfully they do re-paint the numbers on them, though yes, it's a bit like putting a new engine in a car from the 1800's
