The Orville practical miniature

One of the most shocking thing I found out about Seth Macfarlane’s new TV science fiction series is that the Orville is an actual physical model miniature.

HOLY CRAP THEY ACTUALLY BUILT IT!!!!

While I’m not one of those people that is opposed to CGI (I use it in my comics) however you just don’t see this any more; an actual physical miniature. This shows the actual care and respect that the creators of this show have for the the idea of classic science fiction series like Star Trek. Time will determine whether or not the creators of Star Trek Discovery have the same level of respect for the source material that Seth Macfarlane seems to have.


Seems the Orville has more respect for Star Trek than Discovery does

I will reserve judgement on Star Trek Discovery until I watch the trailer but so far I’m not impressed. In the meantime I will be watching The Orville.

Ships of the Line: Behemoth Class Heavy Platform

The Zobot Behemoth Class Battleplatform is an older vessel but is still perfectly capable of engaging any ship in its classification. Even if this vessel is starting to be replaced by the more powerful Gargantuan Behemoth, several upgrades have been added to this vessel over the past few decades to bring it in line with current technology.

See the first appearance of the Behemoth Class In Chapter 1 of Cybertech, with the Armoured Behemoth in Chapter 28

Ships of the Line: Warcon Battlecruiser

Warcon Battlecruiser

Perhaps no ship in the Cybertech universe is so perfectly built for combat than this powerful vessel. The Warcon Battlecruiser is a more than a match for any other ship of in the Battlecruiser category. At an impressive 5,000 meters long this vessel is one of the most intimidating sights to see on the battlefield, combine that with its formidable frontal weaponry that could rip all but the most heavily shielded vessels to shreds with a mere single blast.
