This is another of my favorite ships. I did an older, CFE cheat version, but there's only so much you can do with CFE and if you don't build a "rain catcher" it doesn't work very well with Seasons. I present the Sovereign Class Remodel.
It's a bit smaller than the older Galaxy Class, but there's still plenty of room for a crew of 10-12 to live comfortably.
Note: I won't be making a furniture set with this lot. I already made a bridge set, and the only piece of furniture I can think of that's missing is a medical console. I'll probably do that with the Intrepid furniture set.

I love your work!

I have always felt there was a sad lacking of Star Trek items for the game, and am so happy that you've begun fixing that!!

Qapla!!

Tanner: Thanks, brother. Glad you like
Puppetfish: That's the general idea. I want to make the game fun for me to play. I don't want sims that live in 3 BR tudors on sim lane and go to work as lawyers and doctors. And it's Qapla'. (Heavy pronunciation on the force mark)
Florie1977: Moderator politics. It doesn't say "3 BR tudor" on it and it's not made by one of the moderators' fair-haired favorites, so it doesn't get featured.
All of you: Thanks for the positive feedback

Hey Jason! It looks outstanding! I absolutely LOVE it! You have more than captured the look! I think I shall take it home with me...but I have PLANS for it! :cylon:

Speaking of plans... I finally decided which Sci-fi female characters are worthy of boarding my ships: the Original Stargate has both Samantha Carter and the original doctor, Battlestar Galactica has President Laura Roslin and Teyla on Stargate Altlantis is pretty awesome too! Oh yeah..and my Trek picks are Jadzia Dax and Klingon women! They aren't stereotypical sci-fi/military women. They are in control, strong, knowledgable (without being annoying) and very much feminine. That is the balance that should exist instead of passive racial barrier breakers yes-girls (Uhura), boobdolls (Seven), overbearing tight brainiacs (Janeway), overly butch cavewomen (although Starbuck is alright with me ), soft spoken incompetents (Weir) And you KNOW women are going to take over this ship right?

KIDDING! Thanks for this awesome creation! I can live vicariously through my Sci-fi Sims aboard your spectacular ships!

On the rare occasions when I actually PLAY the game, my starships' officers are about an even balance of male and female. I try not to follow the archetypes to much, just let every individual develop their own command style.

Your Star Trek ship lot is so amazing. Great for Star Trek fans like me.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Steph: Forgive me if I go into a rant here. I'm a bit disappointed you're submitting to the moderator-fabricated sameness fest they laughingly call a contest. I've had several folks post to invite me to participate is the upcoming sci-fi contest. I just laugh derisively and tell them no. Not only would I not participate in a tinkling contest with other creators, I would consider it an insult that one of my creations conformed to the paradigm of moderator-induced unoriginalness. In the rare event that someone writes in one of my creations on the ballot and it wins, my intent is to tell them to stick it in their pointy ears. It torques me off that people like nixnivis (whose creations are wonderful) never get to be featured creators, folks like vectorlover have to wait forever to get the recognition they deserve, but hacks like (no names, but rhymes with minusglover) become the moderators' golden boys/girls overnight. The politics here are a piece of stinking sewer excrement and until people are recognized for their creativity and hard work instead of how much their 2 BR tudor looks like the last 20 that were uploaded, I for one refuse to participate.

J- I actually don't submit to the contest for the sake of it being a legitimate competition. The most obvious element that makes the "contest" useless is the idea that moderators "choose" a select few to be voted on. Also, as in all contest without true parameters, the "winning" is not so much about talent as it is about popularity. For that reason, I no longer look at it as a contest, but as a "show of creations on a specific topic". I submit because I like to add my little piece of creativity to that category and challenge myself to do something a little different as I create. Besides, lot creators don't receive the same recognition as object creators do. It's just a fact of life. Which makes it more important for my ONLY "competition" to be myself. I do it for the fun of creating for me and sharing it with others.

I believe my designs to be of a superior nature (as all creators who put heart, thought and depth into their creations should). This is not conceit but confidence. Conceit would be believing my creations to be better than EVERYONE else or the only good creations. Not everyone (even some who are popular) submit creations that are superior (as defined above). My lots must please me and in doing so, they will please others. I try not to create the "same" thing as everyone else and to add a little something to the category.

In case you haven't noticed, my lots are not "popular" in that way, but I don't care about that or about "winning". I just like to place my talent out there to be on display for all to see! I don't need a win or downloads to validate me. I am confident of my talent. I just like to create and share my friend. Even if only 1 person downloads my lot, that is one person who can appreciate the time, effort and passion I put into my designs! As is life, the so-called "contest" are what you make of them.

As for sci-fi. There is a lack of appreciation for it in the Sims community as a whole. What can we expect? It's like that in society as well. I'm not saying there is not a following for sci-fi (as we all know Trek Conventions are a riot in concept), but I am saying many who run sites that are not Sci-fi specific can't often see the beauty in it. Which in and of itself is sad. People ignore or berate what they can't relate to.

You don't have to tell me about the talent that exists here that goes unrewarded (regardless of whether or not you are seeking rewards for your creations). I use objects by so many creators here at MTS2 that have never been recognized for the sheer genius a single creation brings. So many objects and creations that fall along the wayside. This is not to knock the popular artist. Some actually deserve kudos for their work. However, the search for perfection (which is indeed in the eye of the beholder) often overlooks true perfection or budding talent.

Don't participate in the "contest" J-. It's definitely NOT your cup of tea. Seeing the contest for what it really is...makes it irrelevant to me. It's just another way to put my creations out there for the masses to "SEE". Kinda like a work of art.

How did you slip this one by me? I challenge you...Where's the batleth? :D
