Oh, and the article answers the question of shuttlebay or deflector or what have you. It is a WALL for the bridge to HIDE BEHIND. This is the most brilliant thing said since ever.

Wow, those pics make it look really good. It doesn't seem so kitbashy even. [Smile]

I'm not sure I like this new CG model. It looks nice and all, but there's heck of a lot of liberties been taken with the original model. I like that the Miranda bridge was removed but some of the other changes seem excessive or unnecessary.

Is it just me or are the nacelles too short and thin compared with the saucer size?

A few things...

THIS SUCKS MAJOR ARSE!

Why? Cause it shouldn't be in this fekking crappy magazines, it should be in MOJO's BOOK... we need to start a campaign!!

Oh, and it still doesn't clear up the question as to what was REALLY the name of the model? It doesn't say Centaur.

Oh, and if we take the red squares as torpedo bays, then they are going to be some FRIKKIN' large torpedoes, going by the bridge size - to size the relative size of humans.

They'd (at least the aft ones) would work as shuttle bays.

Or what about the two cyan coloured panels below the main impulse engines?

Andrew

P.S. The fact files suck... "This is the Centaur, it is a starship, it has nacelles and a saucer with impulse engines" Yeah, thanks for that.

I second that. And I don't like CGI-'schematics'. I prefered the ship-drawings they used in the beginning.

OK, can we say this is the official Centaur now? And the other *thing* was a kitbash of the 'Centaur-class' done for the war? Something like that?

It doesn't bother me that libterties were taken. The original model looked like ass. Since all the DS9 kitbashes seemed to have been done in a hurry, I doubt if any of them "really" looked like the original models. This revised Centaur is perfect.

Why don't you try to draw it as the pictures show it? I think with better painting the original kitbash doesn't look that bad.

BTW: Any news about the missing kitbash-pictures?

Actually, I was thinking about that. Doing a comparison between the two maybe.

Thanks for the scans!

Glad that most flaws of the kitbash were fixed - except for one: There should be a deflector dish instead of the two forward launchers. A bit more work to make the launcher look less like on the Miranda would have suited the CGI well - just like the nacelles were modified too.

The text, especially the idiotic remark abouth protecting the bridge - well, I never take too seriously what they are writing the Magazine.

But the "deflector" launched torpedos during the epsiode... My rationalization with this model is that it's the "pristine" version of the class. The pics and ship seen in "A Time to Stand" represent a beat up, jerry-rigged version of what the ship ought to look like. They had been in constant combat from three months by this point - some of the ships are bound not to have that assembly-line look anymore.

More to come - gotta wait to hear back from Mojo.
