Default My remake of the opening moments of Star Trek The Motion Picture

Let's hear it for iClone, babay!

Finally got her did. Here's my humble (very humble) remake of the opening moments of Star Trek The Motion Picture. I didn't do it to reinvent the wheel or anything like that. Just wanted to see if I could do it. It's not movie perfect, and I didn't really intend for it to be so. In fact, I took liberties with making some extra K't'inga footage to make up for the lack of internal scenes. Just wanted to have some fun with my redone K't'inga model, and this was one of the best ways to do it. These models are my final builds (well, until I find something else to do with 'em) of the K't'inga class battlecruiser.

Most kind, thank you.

I've always wanted to have that torpedo effect available to use, and your kind words make me feel even more proud that I made the effect myself.

Amazing, it looks really accurate!
For the ships, you would only need a texture with a higher resolution...
The V'Ger cloud needs some transparency and multi-layered appearence, also more polygons or smoother surfaces

Thanks, again, my friend. That is most kind.

I am definitely going to do reworks of the K't'inga, and the V'ger cloud. I have an idea about how to make it look even more accurate, along the lines of what you suggested.

I think my next build of the K't'inga is going to be absolutely my best yet.
