    Oh, now how cool is THAT, Matt? You get your own ship from the Master himself! Congratulations, and well done.

    Wow. 😀 And that’s a nifty ship as well!

    Ha, very cool, Grats Matt, not everyone gets a ship named after them! 🙂

    Pretty nice little ship as well, you’ll be the envy of the station when that little ship docks 🙂

    I hate to sound like an overly stern teacher, waiting to rap some students knuckles with a ruler, but shouldn’t the headline read “Matt Wright receives the first eavesdropper award”?

      I am constantly embarrassed and ashamed of my spelling and grammatical lack of skill!!! Thanks teacher I have fixed my error!!! OWWWWWW-WAH my knuckles!!!

        Well, since I just noticed a grammatical error of my own (“students” should in fact be “student’s”), I guess I’ll have to give my own knuckles a smack as well. 😉

      by the way how is the grammar on the award???? do I need to rearrange anything???

        Well, I didn’t want to nitpick the actual award, but I would have worded it the “Excellence of Service” award. Am I thinking backwards?

        Deanne has that one right, John. “Service of Excellence” is kind of…strange. I’d go with “Service Excellence Award” or “Award for Excellence in Service”. Sorry, I can’t turn off the copywriter in me.

        What was that, Don? Couldn’t quite hear you….

        No, I think that “Service of Excellence Award” looks perfectly acceptable:

        “Service of an excellent standard”

        “An excellent service”


        [You don’t have to listen to me though, I only sat the most important English exam of my life three weeks ago…]

        Oh, but I Like being right! 🙂

        I still think it would sound better the other way, but then I haven’t taken an English class or exam for, oh too many years to mention. Seumus, I bow to your knowledge.

        Could you please spell my name correctly!?


        Sorry, but the spelling that I use is the Scottish spelling which is slightly different to the (more popular((But not nearly as nice!;-)))) Irish spelling.

        As a result, I have a name that no one can spell… Although I would rather have to (and will) put up with having to correct everyone who spells my name correctly than having any other name: Because this is my name, and I would be incomplete and undefined without it.

        Seumas MacDonald

        (Oh, and I am also rather prideful of the “a” and capital “D” in MacDonald)

        There, that’s your Scottish lesson for today!

        OH so sorry! I pride myself on my spelling and take care to get names right, but I was in a hurry. I totally understand your feeling, since my first name is rarely spelled right, too. Try growing up with my Swedish family’s name of Malmgren – never pronounced or spelled right! 😉

        My humblest apology goes out to Seumas MacDonald!!!

        Yep you gotta watch your “Mc” and “Mac”, the Scotsmen know it’s “Mac” 😉

        Both sides of my lineage have head strong Scottish women marrying British men (how prideful Scott’s feel about this I dunno), so that’s 1/2 my heritage right there 🙂

        Thank you Deanne, and I am thankful (yet full of sympathy for) your understanding!

        (Malmgren seems like a good name though!)

        Oh, and Matt, you’re right about the Mac and Mc, because the Mc means that they are possibly of Irish descent and the capital D is important just because! (and it’s more impressive!)

    Yea, Matt! I can see you going to Staples and having them print a run of a thousand of these to plaster your neighborhood and work with, and then decorating your computer desktop and webpage/blog with the .bmp and then wallpapering your office with what’s left of the print run!!! 😀 I would!

    Very nice little design there, Mr. Eaves.

    I love that long blog roll. Lots of cool places on there that I never knew existed. 😀 And the categories are also nice, it’s easier to find a past post that way. Matt’s doing a great job both here and at Doug Drexler’s blog of making things a little more organized. 🙂

    Well done Matt, and thanks! 🙂

    And since you asked John, I believe you would do with a coma after This, as in:

    John this is very cool to do.

    Matt thanks for your cotnribution to the blog.

    Wow, that is very cool – congratulations Matt! I really like the ship designs where the engines are blended in to the the main hull. Reminds me of some of early British jet bombers, like the Vulcan.

    Thanks John!

    Congrats Matt. I’ve really seen the improvements here and on Doug’s blog. Thanks man.

    Wow I get a ship!!! 😀

    Thanks a ton John, this is perhaps the coolest recognition a Trekker could ask for!

    Congrats Matt!

    Shouldn’t the registry be 6209, though? 🙂

    Hehe, The modelers need a bottom view if Matt’s going to get a mesh made! 😉

    This sort of reminds me of a little courier ship of some sort. Also I feel like it would be a vessel Harry Mudd would have commandeered if he were alive in the Nemesis era.

  17. June 2, 2009 at 11:41 am

    Wow that’s fantastic! Many congratulations Matt!

    Somebody needs to kit this design!

    Wow if/when you guys with the 3D skills do it, I’ll be most humbled, and anxious, to see it rendered in full 🙂

    I’m more of a tech guy not an artistic one, so I can keep your PCs going for you but I’m not so hot with the artistic skill 😉

    Matt, an original eaves ship for you. How fitting. Keep up the great work!

  21. June 5, 2009 at 9:33 am

    Not meaning to be a rag, but there would be a space after the coma too John. The graphic designer type-setter in me.

    As in:


    Maybe you forgot it, or maybe your kerning (space between letters) is off…

    Well, I was bored so I decided to make a lowish poly model of her, I posted her on my blog, but here is a link directly to the image as well. Happy planet hopping Matt 🙂
