I put to him the question why his original concept of the Ferengi were never realized on screen. Here's what they looked like [link]

Superb, made all the better by me knowing that you built her. Awesome yet again! As far as going pro, another way to look at it would be that how few people can make a living doing something that they are truly passionate about?
Reply
:iconthefirstfleet:
thefirstfleet Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012
I would lose the passion. Imagien that, not being able to do freely what you do. A boss would stad behind you, saying that, e. g. "no, do something with Voyager instead of the Enterprise". NOOOOOOO! :D

This scene is more the Enterprise-E's gig, but the Enterprise-D works really, really well here.

The ship may not fit the concept of the 2063 first contact; still, a beautiful shot. keep it up ;)

I wanted a Picard pic. Although I'm a Kirk fan, Picard was the diplomat more ready for first contacts, hence the Enterprise-D.

Just wondering.. why no Enterprise-E? Or is it in progress yet? You don't seem to be much of a friend of TNG Federation designs though.. nvm.

I wish to build the E, one day. It's not easy, building these ships with work to do and STO to play... :D

Aztán ha szemétkednek a vulkániak (ld. minden sorozat a TOSon kívül), akkor manapság csak elmondunk egy vörös anyagos rossz poént, hogy megjuhászodjanak :D

Uhhh... ez gonosz volt. Csak nem felhúztak melóban? Nekem épp emberiségellenes hangulatom van...
Reply

thefirstfleet Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012
Mi baj, mesélj!

Nekem amúgy jó a hangulatom. Eredetileg be kellett vonla mennem húsvét hétnőn. Erre a főnök: ha nem akarod, nem kell bejönöd. Mondom: WTF? Erre Ő: Maradj otthon, pihend ki magad. Megérdemled, jól dolgozol.

Fakjee!

Pénteken is Hawaii volt. Tudni kell, hogy Svájcban a nagypéntek nagyobb ünnep, mint a húsvét hétfő. Egsz nap egyetlen hívás jött be - nem nekem, hanem az egész irodában! Úgyhogy a korán kezdőket szépen hazaengedte két órával korábban a főnök.

Imádom ezt a melót :D

Á csak a szokásos, 2 helyen csináljak 3 dolgot egyszerre. Meg mostanában paraszt mindenki, meg tegnap lefagyott a fülem kint a betonon mire betereltem a 180 birkát a karámba.

I like the way the lighting catches off the slightly differently shaded hull plates, you really need to do more shots that highlight this effect, it gives the ships their own unique character.

Hope its just an oversight that you haven't heard back from SOTL mate. You're certainly up to the task!! :)
