The Meta Vision by RobCaswell The Meta Vision by RobCaswell
Greywolf-Starkiller just finished his Meta Probe model [link] , based on the ship seen in the first episode of "Space:1999" so I thought I'd take it for a spin.

His model loads in different sections. This allows you to rearrange many of the ship's components (or even kitbash with them). I've done a few tweaks here, moving and rotating some pieces.

My idea was that this was a publicly released poster by the World Space Commission designed to get people excited about the project. Of course, like most projects, details change from drawing board to flying execution. And deadlines always get overrun....

DAZ Studio render.

love it
not my fab from 1999, I always thought the cabin area should have been bigger, like the Ultra probes

Ah well. I agree. You can always make your own "reimagined" version. ;)

Um..is this the ship that was in the freaky, scary episode with the 'Space Dragon'?

Much cheers to you and yours.

Nope. That was the Ultra Probe. Sorta similar looking... but only sorta.

The cabin. *Nods*

I just remember being freaked out by the monster. Still gets me some times in fever dreams.

Much cheers to you and yours.

You are not alone there. The spaceship graveyard... the probe crew opening the airlock hatch... the pilot trapped in the forward section as they're being killed, one by one...

Not an episode I'd care to watch on my own.

*Nods* Yah...that was a great piece of writing etc. :)

Some memories, though not good, are great 'cause we remember the other good things about the shows which gave them to us.

Much cheers to you and yours. :)

I read that they are planning on a remake of that show, called "Space: 2099". [link] :D

Nice image! :clap:

Hm. Sounds messy and contentious. I anticipate a lawsuit, unless one changes their name.
At any rate I'd welcome a remake/upgrade. I only hope one or both productions get beyond pre-production.

Awsome, as usual. :) Hopefully, I'll have an Eagle out to play before too long, followed by the hawk. Trek burned me out for a time, but
Space 1999 with get my imagination going again. :) My sis is likely wondering at her sudden popularity! Two visits in less than a week! ^_-

It'd be great to see you expand on this to make an Ultra Probe.

better then the original,
BUT!!
Has the same problem, Ive never liked the cabin, needs something bigger like the Ultra probe

RobCaswell Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012  Professional General Artist
Well it's just a command cabin. There is probably more habitable space aft. But even without that it's probably a lot roomier than, say, the Orion CEV.

I keep looking, but for the life of me, I can not find the artists who are rendering as the probe streaks outward (I bet they're inside the habitat module, huh? ;))

The guy who snapped the pic did a damn fine job, though!

Hey! Near future and reasonably realistic! Just what you were looking for. Slick palette and composition, and a great "adventure" feel. Maybe you should do a series with this design, and call them Meta 1, Meta 2, Meta 3, Meta 4...

Did they run into this ship again or was it something similar in one of the later space 1999 eps?

You might be thinking about the Ultraprobe form the episode "Dragon's Domain." It had the same eagle command module in front.

I have always loved this ship. Now that it's done, maybe it's time to do some 1999 art. I've never actually done any...
