    After a long hiatus I finally finished the modeling on this bad boy.

    Enjoy.

    Great to see you back RJB, and great to see some more work on this design. One of my favourites, being the B5 nut I am. :lol2:

    If I don't jump right into texturing I think I'll give a few near future designs a go.

    Wow, that is stunning. Never got into B5, but that looks great. Kind of, sort of reminds me of the Roger Young

    It's based on the older Hyperion ship class but modernized with the technologies that went into the new Warlock class destroyer.

    You've really done yourself a dis-service. It's my favourite sci-fi series. The one series that had an established outline before it went to air. So things that happen (such as visions) in season 1 came to be in seasons 3 and 4. I'd highly recommend if you get the opportunity to watch the series run. :thumbsup:

    I'm going to agree with Maj on both counts...

    1. Rifraf - watch Babylon 5!!! Everything you need to learn about life you can learn from B5, I just wish I could remember who said that. It is one of the most epic storylines you will ever come across. Stick with the first season, it may seem like hard work at first (a close friend has had my 1st season box set for two years and still hasnt managed it :( ) but after the first dozen episodes or so the series really gets going.

    2. RJB - good to see you back. Nice work on the... she needs a name! Anyways, you sir serve as an inspiration to me, so I'm very glad you're back :worship:

    Yes, B5 is a fantastic show and the pre-planned five year arc was well done. In particular, how visions, prophecies, and time travel remain consistent despite several actors leaving or joining the show. If you watch it, don't forget to start with the pilot movie The Gathering. I do agree with kjc, though, season one could be weak.

    Helios, perhaps?

    I have seen parts of some episodes when it was on, but just never got into it on a regular basis. I may have to see if I can find it cheap or second hand or something. It's not that I don't care for it or anything, just never started into it. May have to correct that. :)

    Absolutely, as others have said, bare with season 1 it really picks up towards the end of the season and season 2, 3 and 4 are really great. I mean most series I can sit down and watch an episode or two but Babylon 5 I can sit down and watch a whole season easy.

    In fact when I get YY finished and if I still have the bug my next project will probably be a Babylon 5 one.

    Just so people don't think I'm dead here is a small original design I was doing for fun.

    I like it! Is it a Trek ship or an original setting? Kind of hard to tell from the shape.

    Looks like it would fit in the Stargate universe very well.

    It's original but does have a trek influence.
