Carbon Creek #27 was a great episode and the script called for a new Vulcan rescue vessel. Doug Drexler started the new Vulcan design aesthetics of the open ringed starships with his beautiful design of the Surak. Following his lead the sketches for the D’vahl started to be put down on paper. This piggyback idea of two ships traveling interlocked came from The US Navy. Pictured at the top and the bottom of Today’s post are pictures of both vessels, The USS Dallas, and the DSRV (Deep Sea Rescue Vehicle) docked together for a rescue mission. For the Vulcan ships the same theory applied. with the addition of a moveable warp ring. For the Vulcan rescue ship We could still use the Definition of DSRV by just changing “Sea” to “Space” the approval for this one was a fairly easy one but at one point the same guy who flopped directions of Ruoffo’s ship in ST Insurrection, was flipping this one around with a puzzled look on his face so I raced back to the office and drew a big forward arrow on it!!!!! HAAAAA that was a close one!! This was a fun ship on a bunch of levels, and that being it was going to have some animated pieces and the little rescue ship. Mathematically you could get a good range of motion with one hinge point. The modeling of this ship was awesome and My old man brain won’t let me remember Which modeling Deity from Eden brought this one to life. I am sure by the end of the day the real genus will be named!!!! HAAAA! the rejected idea came from a football shape cut open like a sandal, Ahhhh, not only can you fly around the galaxy in it but you can throw a touchdown for the winning point, and wear it to the beach after. Have a great Thursday and enjoy the movie to everyone going today!!!
