Howdy, all! I am a huge fan of TOS Trek, much moreso than any of the other "eras." Mainly I think that is because it's most nostalgic for me. I am known in the 3D social network of Second Life as CorpCosmic (or Corporal Cosmic)... There I began working on TOS and near slightly earlier era material, partly due to my love of TOS , but also due to the exciting prospects coming from the Axanar movie project.
I am currently working on an early/pre-TOS era style ship called the USS Tarkus - NCC-179. I've bounced about with several styles of ship, but have settled on a sort of Daedalus retrofit - a ship that's been around far too long and overdue being mothballed. I have the idea of creating consoles and tech for the ship that is inspired by "The Cage" style and Axanar. Scale of course is an issue, along with some of the other limits involved in creating things in Second Life... but, it's fun, and I hope it will be enjoyed by all in a short time.
Ship work in progress (pardon the disks/platforms above, they're temporary):
A side fun hobby which makes some diehard Trek folks crazy... is that the USS Tarkus has developed a "KittyCrew"... as I was goofing about with Second Life pets that are very popular... and we ended up with these characters, left to right:
- Leondard (Born the day Nimoy passed away, as an ongoing tribute)
- Skelton (I needed a "red uniform" member, and Skelton by pure chance
was born "ruddy/red" and with a randomly assigned name of "Skelton",
thus, he seemed meant to be "Red" Skelton
- Matzah (Born the day I began the ship idea and laid its first deck,
Matzah is as much a part of the ship as the ship is a part of her)
