Herald Of Humanity by Marrekie Herald Of Humanity by Marrekie
Sketchup 3D / Photoshop

An attempt to design a realistic, heavy interplanetary spacecraft. Will we ever witness space travel on this scale?

Tnx for 160+ faves people!

Looks like everything we need to colonize Mars. Forget building a real Deathstar, build this! I'm still not gonna sign up to go, but best of luck to the those that do. I'd just suggest not reading biographies of early New World settlers on the voyage to your new home.

dunno the answer to your question.... we can only hope.... I wish that the original designers of the Enterprise... had filter their thinking the way you have... put a pair of warp nacelles on this design and you hve a viaable, realistic enterprise. What program did you use?

Well, look who was in charge of Enterprise?  The Vince Russo of Star Trek, Rick Berman.  His concern was never making early Starfleet look like logical exploration (as his vision of Starfleet was not exploration), instead he wanted something that could fight aliens on a weekly basis, and look pretty doing it.  Any wonder they just took the Akira-class from First Contact and flipped it upside-down.  Thank the gods they fired him in that last season... but it was too little too late.

As for ~Marrekie's question... not as long as our lawmakers only care about their own re-election, as NASA's budget is determined entirely by Congress.  Hell, only reason they gave so much money to the Apollo program was because they didn't want the Soviets to reach the Moon first, and paint it red (not a joke, they had actually threatened that publicly at one point).
