You know, back in 2006 when I first started producing Specter, I briefly toyed around with the idea of a Sovereign-class USS F. Scott Fitzgerald. That idea was ultimately abandoned because at the time, there wasn't enough reference material available for the interior sets, and there weren't any good Sovereign-class meshes out there. The more I work with this mesh, the more convinced I get that if I'd had access to it six years ago, any amount of effort would've been worth it to have this be the hero ship--the level of detail might be driving me crazy now while I'm fixing the textures, but in the end it would've been well worth it.

You made great improvements over a masterpiece Chainsaw. She looks in great shape, but... Excuse me to be a pain, but the lettering over the saucer has colors inverted (the red and the black). ;)

It got fixed on import into Bryce. I'm almost done with retexturing it, it's continuing to look fantastic and I'm really wishing I could work it into more than just the epilogue. Both Chainsaw and Paul did amazing jobs with this beauty!

Damn that is looking very sweet. Meanwhile i'm reworking a sketchup model to 3ds specs. Here's a clue.

^ If you can get that thing up to broadcast quality it would make a perfect addition to the epilogue. Right now I'm using a modified version of my 1701-B bridge all the way from the beginning of Specter:

It's good but no substitute for an actual Sovereign-class bridge.

Meanwhile here's a glimpse of your work in action:

Uau!
Ronald and Brandon, you´re doing a work that deserves 100 stars!
Brandon, looking at those Ent-E renderings, I can almost "see" the interiors behind the windows all around the hull. If it was done just with textures, it is one of the best illusions that I ever seen!!

As a side note... Brandon, I know, I know... you already said that you don´t have the subtitles done nor planned, but I would love to have timed srt files available and do a translation to portuguese. Your trilogy is much superior than a lot of Hollywood movies that I watched in recent times. 8)
