Swirl of Thoughts by RobCaswell Swirl of Thoughts by RobCaswell
The Pioneer and Rama rendezvous in a system as directed by Commodore Kraal on Starbase 17. All the psionically sensitive races with 15 parsec had reported what they called "a psychic scream" from a system known as uninhabited by earlier Federation surveys.

On arrival in system it was obvious to both crews that it was not "business as usual" in this binary system lying off the beaten path. Visuals showed a space filled with frenetically swirling objects, though full spectrum sensors showed a far more complex manifestation of energies. The Pioneer and Rama are proceeding on impulse to the epicenter of this swarm. All their Vulcan and Betazoid crew members had to be sedated in order to endure the approach.

You know four warp engines would provide a more stable warp bubble,than just two

Once again great background...didn't realize that the Pioneer's nacelles' were stacked so high. For some reason they looked more compact in previous shots which was quite a few...eh chum? ;) Not to say I tire of any model before you do...I dream of exploring a ship's geometry and composition as much as you. *insert 3d envy here*

Kosher advice, but I must attempt to forge ahead through online research until I at least hit a knowledge plateau. Besides I want to save up to get a Wacom tablet...using the mouse is for everything is getting ridic :stupidme:

You may want to look into the Monoprice tablet line and save yourself a bundle of moolah! I've been using one everyday at work for about 2 years.... and you can get this model for about $60 on Amazon.

Wow, 60 bucks hot damn. Sights were set on the Wacom Bamboo but this seems to be rated well and Mac compatible, just looking something pretty basic for now. This would do nicely, thanks! :w00t:

Oh yes! It kind of pissed me off, when I heard that filmaking "GENIUS"(his words)J. J. Abrams said that the original Enterprise design was boring and static looking. Of course ONLY the great J.J. Abrams could improve upon it and finally make the quaint Star Trek franchise acceptible and appealing to today's oh so sophisticated teens and 20-somethings!

This is what being in Starfleet is all about, folks. Exploring and sometimes confronting, the unknown.

There are no words to convey the awesomeness going on here.
