USS Polaris MSD by thefirstfleet USS Polaris MSD by thefirstfleet
Something that was long overdue, but I finally managed to tackle: the MSD of the Polaris. I did it in Photoshop, based upon the style of the LCARS GFX blog

I started this back in December and did double shifts in the last few days to complete it. I hope you like it!

The horrible, tragic secret of the Kzinti War...

They all just smelled the milk and their feline instincts overrode their sense of reason...

They gathered around starbases, hailing repeatedly, sometimes rubbing their ships up against the bases, and when Starfleet failed to interpret their requests, they made an angry hissing sound and the presiding captain clapped his hands loudly and yelled 'No! Bad!'.

Shots were fired, lives were lost... the Kzinti War had begun...

There must always be a cow inside a ship, it's vital foe the function of the ship!!!

Really?!?! Well what are the Nacelles for? I always thought that they generated the warp field.

Yupp. That's what they do via the Warp coils.

So what specifically does the warp coils do? If the cells create the field the coils creates what?
And thanks because this is really interesting....!!

They pump energy into them and they create the Warp field which propels the ship beyond lightspeed.

I thought I detected a fair bit of Bmused55's style in this.

Good job!  I have always wondered how someone could do this using Photoshop.  I would love to make my own but I haven't the faintest idea how.  Any pointers?

I used TOS Enterprise MSDs for the basic layout. I just filed in the rest, drawing and copying and more copying.

 I never know that she had aft phasers at this point, or aft torpedo tubes (or is it only a single?). With the nacelle out of the way, I now see how the engineering hull is just this tiny little thing.

She has aft phasers but no aft torpedo launcher. And yeah, the engineering hull is tiny :D

 Oops, that's a tractor beam emitter in the fantail, not a torpedo launcher! And there's a cow and pig on board?!

Do you guys remember that old Mac game, 'Rescue' in which you're in control of the Enterprise and have to evacuate planets of their colonists and deliver them to starbases?

I miss that game...

I don't like the look of that ratio...

whole ship could explode as soon as you start the warp core!

(assuming the ratio is matter:antimatter)

You sure you want to depart captain?

I'd trust my chief engineer with my life. He's a Native American badass, after all :D
