So, I finally got around to refitting a classic.
Can you guess what it is yet?
Ambassador class was correct!
Boy, have I been busy.
I’m also being kept very busy by a very big, very awesome, project. I’m not sure I am allowed to tell anyone just now and I know the powers that be monitor this blog (squeeeeeeee!) so I’ll stay stum until otherwise told! Suffice to say, it’s of interest to all of you and the fruits of my labours will be seen and enjoyed by all at some point.
So, my posts will likely be even fewer far between for the foreseeable. But I do anticipate being able to squeeze the odd MSD or similar graphic out every so often.
A while back I asked Andrew Probert (Yes, the man who designed the fabulous Enterprise D amongst other things) if I could use his intriguing design for a repair tug and MSD-ise it. He said yes.
Here we have his designs.
Note that the lower two decks are reversed and are “upside down” in relation to the rest of the vessel. This is because the bottom of the ship is flat and serves as a maintenance and repair deck. The two supporting decks are orientated to facilitate easier access.
The overall length of the tug is almost as long as the nacelle on a galaxy class ship.
