Relay Station

Post by Kremin » Fri Jan 05, 2018 12:07 am

I worked a lot Christmas day and boxing day so I had clusters of time off to throw a kitbash together, although nearly completed still much to do




HISTORY OF RELAY STATIONS

After the Khitomer Accords of 2293 several classes of starships on both sides were mothballed and many border stations dismantled. This had a side effect of reducing the effectiveness of subspace communication as the border stations were boosting signal traffic. It was decided that Relay Stations would be needed to maintain communications. In accordance with the treaty these stations would be unarmed and not equipped with advanced sensory capabilities and have a crew of 30 communication specialists and maintenance crew(Later advances and upgrades in automation this number would be massively reduced to 2)

At the top of the habitation module is a shuttle bay with capability for two shuttle craft but only one is based on station

I'm not happy the way this turned out so I may add some clamshell doors in an open posititon


The Habitation module can be detached from the station and maintain self sufficient life support for a considerable time period[/i][/color]


the model still needs some detailing and a few docking ports added for travel pods then panel detailing and a matt coat

This is coming along very nicely. I like that you gave it such a thoroughly plausible backstory. A well thought out design. :thumbsup:

You made an impressive station. Nobody recognized it?

Sweet! I love the relays and stations... I on the other hand still have zero aptitude for scratch building... :pulling hair: so I have started to find what I can in 3d for printing....
