Oftentimes we see applications of a new building technique on a small experimental model, but rarely do we see them applied to a large creation. I am delighted to see tiberium_blue‘s T’Met Monastery, which not only uses Technic liftarms for its massive stone walls but also depicts a refreshing subject of a fictional sanctuary inspired by a Star Trek Vulcan monastery.
Christophe Corthay‘s Star Trek inspired Vulcan ship called the Phenix has some of the craziest curves I’ve seen. They’re crazy because not only are there so many rings, but they are also textured by SNOT techniques. I can’t imagine the amount of strain in this model, which could make it explode at any moment. But for what it’s worth, the result looks drop dead gorgeous.
Adrian Drake has done an incredible job here. This ship is gorgeous. It’s over a 100 studs in length and almost entirely studless. I’m very impressed. Beautiful!
You know it’s true.
legomocs combines LEGO elements in a fairly simple way to achieve perfect brick-built phasers and a tricorder. Combined with the red and yellow torsos, these minifigs are instantly recognizable.
Jamie said it best: “Normally they look too plain, but it’s amazing how nice black pants and a few accessories can make blank torsos look.”
I had the pleasure of seeing an unfinished version of Jon Walker‘s Surak MkII at BrickCon 2007 last month. Despite being unfinished, its awesomeness earned it a rightful “Best Spaceship” award. Inspired by a Vulcan ship from Star Trek: Enterprise, the ship is 244 studs in length with a ring 62 studs wide.
I feel like an odd person to cover the sci-fi section sometimes – besides liking to look at spaceships, I know nothing about Star Wars, Star Trek or basically any other sci-fi series for that matter. Still, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate this fantastic sculpture made by Patrick Yrizarry depicting a certain Borg from Star Trek:
40 years ago today, the first five-year mission of the starship Enterprise began. Five television series, ten movies, and many books and video games later, Star Trek is still boldly going. Brendon Griffith celebrates with a microscale model of the N.C.C. 1701 U.S.S. Enterprise.
An unknown builder celebrates the wise words of Spock with this sculpture.
I hadn’t planned on making any minifigs based on Star Trek the original series, nor ones from Deep Space Nine, so I’m glad that Steve Bishop has created both!
On an away mission, here’s Lt. Spock, Capt. James T. Kirk, Dr. Leonard H. McCoy, and the soon-to-be-deceased (I assume) Lt. D. E. Adman:
Captain Kirk is awesome!!!
Here’s the crew from Deep Space Nine, Chief Miles E. O’Brian, Capt. Benjamin Sisko, Lt. Jadzia Dax, and Dr. Julian Bashir:
Here’s my non-decal take on the crew of NCC-1701-D Enterprise (click for full photoset on Flickr:
