Interests
I got a flash of ambition over the weekend as I got into the finishing stages of working on my girlfriend's 4.0 Jeep engine.  It is crazy what inspires my artwork or what inspires me to change it.  As of right now, I am in the process of making more refined and detailed UV maps for my Lexington class battlecarrier.  If all goes well, I will use the new object files (that I am doing as individual parts: engines, Stellar Warp nacelles, PHELAC turret, I-Field generator, etc.) to redo ALL of the ships of that type.  If I like how they come out, I will begin the process of redoing ALL of the UV maps of my ships. :)

In general, the nuclear dampeners provided moderate to considerable resistance to energy weapons and were able to cause missile warheads to either explode or go inert within its area of effect.

Description/Overview:
          The success of the initial squadron of Juno class frigates against the UN's AS-03 Luna Defense fleet near the planetoid Apophis in 2059 led Admiral Horatio Xavier to call for the immediate development of an even larger warship. He knew that the Juno frigates would permit the fledgling USSN space fleet to dominate the Earth sphere within a relatively short period of time. With this in mind, Admiral Xavier chose to have a "command" heavy frigate vessel for use with the new fleet of spacecraft. This new heavy frigate would coordinate the operations of the fleet on the front lines with the warships that would conduct the USSN campaign to retake the Earth sphere. Xavier demanded that this command-ship retain the Juno class frigate's fast, moderately armored, but more powerfully armed. From these requirements the Saturn class heavy space frigate was born.
         The Saturn class was built to coordinate the USSN fleets in actual space warfare against the spacecraft of the UNSC fleet in the same manner as the old surface ocean command ships did a century before. To fill this role, the Saturn class required the same level of speed as that of the Juno and Type-59 corvette. Therefore, a large Rocketdyne fusion thruster capable of propelling the craft at a forward Delta-V of 90,000 mph within 10-seconds. This engine was viewed as being adequate for Juno-to-Earth travel, but not enough for travel within the inner sphere of the Sol star system in a reasonable amount of time. Therefore, four smaller Rocketdyne Fusion Thrusters were added to the craft in order to provide an additional 100,000 mph of Delta-V acceleration speed. Thus the combined Delta-V acceleration moving either forward of reverse for the Saturn class was a speed akin to that of the Juno and Type-59: that being 190,000 mph. This speed was more than enough to travel between the inner planets and the asteroid belt with the Saturn's smaller contemporaries in unison.
         The weapons of the Saturn class heavy frigate were nearly identical to those of the Juno and quickly eclipsed the armaments of the standard frigate to become the most powerful weapons mounted on a space warship of the 2060s. Three Norking LC-803 240-megawatt triple laser cannon turrets acted as the main batteries of the heavy space frigate. These weapons allowed the frigate to go head-to-head with the anything the UN Space Corps had in their arsenal at the time. The Saturn also had four single-barrel, Norking LC-801 80-megawatt laser cannon turrets as its secondary offensive beam weaponry that allowed the Saturn the ability to fend off assault shuttles without using its main batteries. Eight dual-barrel, Norking LC-402 40-megawatt laser cannon turrets acted as the primary anti-mecha/space fighter weapons of the warship in the same manner as the Juno frigate and the Type-59 Corvette. These dual-barrel cannon turrets were mounted in key locations along the top and bottom of the hull of the vessel in order to maximize their defensive capability. In addition to these anti-mecha/space fighter turrets, six Norking LC-602 laser cannon turrets were added to act as anti-assault shuttle batteries. These six turrets were mounted around the top turrets and bridge of the warship on its dorsal side. The final armaments of the Saturn class were eight Bohing STL-02 heavy space torpedo tubes. Each of these tubes carried ten MHST-01 medium-range heavy space torpedoes armed with HEAP warheads (nuclear only when needed). These warheads were capable of destroying practically any UNSC spacecraft, but were intended mostly to expedite the capture of Atlas class super-heavy transport ships/space-tugs.
         The Saturn was fitted with six Norking ND-1500 1500-megawatt nuclear dampener generators in concealed hardpoints on the hull. These generators gave the craft unprecedented protection for a warship of its era, and paved the way for use of the nuclear dampening systems in future generations of USSN/EFF spacecraft. It was also fitted wtih a gravitational control unit (antigravity).
         The Saturn class heavy space frigate proved to be a crowning success for the USSN fleet of the 2060s and its service record against the UNSC ensured that is was produced for over twenty years. It was an excellent fighting vessel and subsequently was built in large numbers. The production rate at the planetoid of Juno was 1 ship ever 2 months month from 2059 until 2081 when the original class was replaced by the Neptune class upgrade. Thus the total fleet of original Saturn class ships was 124 vessels at the end of production. Like the Juno and Type-59 before it, the Saturn class were engaged in combat almost as soon as the first vessels left the shipyards of the planetoid Juno in 2059. These warships continued fighting until the last few months of the 1st Interplanetary War and in the post-war years against space pirates afterwards. After the Earth Federal Republic began its re-armament program in 2081, the Saturn class was upgraded to the Neptune class (Saturn Mark-II) and used as the main command-patrol vessel of the Earth Federal Space Navy. It should be noted that these vessels are exclusive to the EFSN and were never used by the Earth Federal Space Marine forces.

What's Taking So Long, you ask?

Statistical data revisions.
One of the main reasons for designing the Nexus Arcana vehicles, ships, and mecha was to get an idea of how they would actually function in real life.
Specifically, how many space fighters, battle robots, shuttles, and exosuits their spacecraft could reasonably carry and how big their ships would need to be to meet their needs.
How many rounds and missiles their vehicles and mecha could have in payload, and the types of weapons they could be fitted with and still fit inside the ships that carried them.
To make a long story short...What I'm helping them realize is that their ships are too small.
So, I will be going over the data for the ships that I have not redone yet and amending it as needed.  This of course is slowing down the production time of the models, but once it is done (and it works satisfactorily) the flow of the workload should be much smoother.
Saturn Class model
After months of fighting with this thing (and totally rebuilding the model and its UV maps), I am done and ready to send the Saturn class to Layout (probably tonight or tomorrow).  I will hopefully have the data sheet for it done this weekend and then will get to its variants.
Hopefully the other models I have to redo will not take anywhere near as long as this one did.  The bridge and secondary hull of this ship were the hardest parts, as well as getting the UV maps to line up the way I wanted them too.

Isokaze class update2
The Bridge section is giving me quite the headache at this point.  I've done it a few times now and I think a ball-polygon at 64-sides will work best.  Leiji Matsumoto's combination of World War II features (like a multi-glass pane cockpit/bridge) and the smooth contours of a Flash-Gordon style rocket-ship are difficult to combine in 3D using verticies, edges and polygons that are all flat. :)

Here is the Fourth Update on this project.
The bridge glass was extremely difficult to get right (and it still isn't exact, but then again neither are ANY of the images I found as references).

My Star Trek Online Cheat Sheet
I created this sheet to help me organize and plan my small flotilla of ships offline.
It helps to have this when I don't want to play STO, but have a short break from working on my client models and just like to plan where I'm going.
If I had done this from the beginning it would have saved me a lot of headache and money, so I thought I'd share this so anybody just getting started might get be helped with planning.
STO is very complex (which is why I like it), and requires a lot of thought before you jump into it.

Please understand that this is a worksheet and that these ships are all still being worked on. :)

BTW, if anybody wants a cheat-sheet like this done.
I will make them for $10.00 US or 1500-Zen, you just have to provide the jpegs of your ship-boards from STO and I'll crop them and put them into a chart like this one. :)
