USS Independence launches in Sacramento!

by CMDR Marc Wagner, USS Independence NX-75029 A new meeting chapter has joined the 4th Fleet in Sacramento, CA!  The Sovereign-class USS Independence has launched on her shakedown under the command of Commander Marc Wagner.  In their first month they have already acquired twelve crew members, of which 10 are now SFI members.  The crew has been invited to host a Star Trek panel at next year’s Intergalactic Expo in West Sacramento and will be headlining a “Beat the Geeks” event at a local laser tag arena.  Their website is www.ussindependence.net.

Wanted: Artists for Starship/Station Schematics

The Department of Technical Services (DTS) is seeking talented artists to help execute engineering drawings of starships and space stations. The selected candidates will create engineering schematics from rendered or

photographed images, work with groups creating new vessel designs to visualize those concepts, and extrapolate from existing schematic images to create other views that may not as yet exist. This work is both technical
and creative, and requires both an understanding of Star Trek’s technology and an ability to accurately draw Star Trek space vehicles, either by hand or by computer.

Volunteers can apply to serve on a stand-by basis, taking on projects on a periodic basis, or may volunteer for just a single project with no long-term commitment. All that DTS seeks is a willingness to contribute and the talent
to do so with quality work.

To volunteer for a project, please contact DTS and include the following:

1] A brief description of abilities and experience relevant to creating schematics. This can include either “real life” or STARFLEET experience.

2] An estimate of how quickly one can produce detailed and accurate drawings.

3] Top plan and side elevation drawings of any one of the following starships:

  • Constitution-class heavy cruiser (Original Series Enterprise)
  • Enterprise-class heavy cruiser (Enterprise from the “Classic Trek” feature
  • films: refit-1701/1701-A)
  • Galaxy-class large exploratory cruiser (Enterprise-D)
  • Sovereign-class heavy cruiser (Enterprise-E)
[NOTE: Please submit one of only these four ships! Your creativity and ability to draw other vessels is appreciated and important, but by having potential artists submit drawings of the best known ships, it is possible to
demonstrate ability to portray Star Trek’s technologies, and it becomes easier to objectively assess everyone’s relative capabilities.]

Drawings may be submitted in either electronic or hardcopy format, but if submitting electronic files, please be sure they can be printed out in black-and-white. In general, .bmp, .gif, .png, and .jpg formats are preferred. Please check with me if you wish to use another format.
