Hey people, time to get your cyber hands a little dirty!

Everyone likes to imagine their dream starship, whether so you an play with it on galciv2 or not it's always something we sci-fi fans love to think about. Well now's your time to share.

It doesn't matter if you can not draw for nutts! Just pour your heart and soul into a drawing or picture or model of your dream ship or ships. Let go and have fun, use any program you like. You can even just describe it to the rest of us if you like through text. For those of you with a more creative swing you can even give us the full cinemas experience as you tour us around you ship on a MPEG, AVI, or whatever file.

Just go nutts with it people, lets get Creating!

 

My favourite starship;

Name: Dave Mengchang
Captian: Number 1 (he looks like his ship)
Crew compliment: unknown
Weapons: Blasters
Defences: Magnetic sheilding
Important notes to remember: This ship's fax machine is located between his lower back and upper thigh . It can even print coins .

Yes, I love it (more than Maya). It's kinda restricted for doing curvy and fluid and smoother surfaces cuz it's mainly for manufacturing and my teachers in High school sucked so i didn't learn much.  If someone tells me how to put a picture on here, i will of something i made in Pro-E...

Oh idk, well i know you can export the parts from Pro-E into Maya as .obj cuz i have both.  But it's huge in Maya so you'd have to scale it down(i mean huge). I've never modded or anything but maybe...do you have or use Maya at all?

you've got to host your image on a site, like photobucket or imageshack, then it will provide you with a url link to your image. One you've done that copy your image url into the Insert/Edit Image area. it should apear.

ps. flickr is not a valid hosting site.

I think you also need to make sure you are not on Flash 10 yet, seems only flash 9 works here for uploading. At least that was the case when I last tried uploading an avatar here, haven't tried lately, so I'm probably wrong

X-304 Daedalus-classBam. Two F-303 fighter bays, railguns, missile silos, transporters, beam weapons, an Asgard computer core, and (because this is what really matters) an awesome captain's chair.

Daedalus-class battleship. Maybe not the most powerful, but it's definitely my favorite of all the various starships in all the various sci-fi shows I've watched. (obviously I didn't create this myself. For anyone who doesn't know, it's from the television series Stargate SG-1)

1 WORD........DRONES . The Ancients know how to make badass ships. Aurora rules.

Pssh. Everyone knows that the Asgard computer core on the Daedalus can just create a temporal stasis field around the ship. Let's see your drones try and get through that.

More seriously, the Aurora would probably be my second choice. I generally like ships that were designed for what they're used for, and not for asthetics. Thats why I love the industrial and we-don't-care-how-ugly-our-warships-are attitude of the Alterans and us.

Actually, scratch that. I'm pushing the Aurora down to 3rd. Puddlejumper wins. 1 big bad battleship, and then 1 small cloakable shuttle. (can't find a good picture on the interwebs, sorry for anyone who doesn't watch SG)

Very Nice!  Are any of those ships from the Aliens show? They look so familiar to me

I have no idea why but dual pronged ships seem to be incredibly common in space scifi. Even though such a design is horrible weak from a structural standpoint.
