Ensoniq5 is the workhorse on this project. I've just been a great admirer for awhile now.

Ensoniq5, that last image reminds me of an old Bruce Dern flick, Silent Running.

Those that like Silent Running (1972)(imdb) might also like Moon (2009)(imdb)(youtube.com/watch?v=twuScTcDP_Q[/youtube]]Trailer).

Ensoniq5, that last image reminds me of an old Bruce Dern flick, Silent Running.

The domed 'gardens' were added as an entirely intentional homage to Silent Running which is one of those films watched in my childhood that helped form my continuing love affair with science fiction and, well, spaceships and stuff.  They were added as an afterthought, the original ship design was constructed by a member of the team who unfortunately left without supplying the model, so I had to recreate it in Anim8or from the few renders available.  I loved the design so left it pretty much unchanged, except for the gardens.  I'm very happy you made the connection with Silent Running!

There's actually a number of small nods to other shows and contemporary science hidden (some more secretly than others) in the MBE plates.  The blue 'carpet' texture in the interior shot attached was derived from a recent quantum-microscope image of the atomic structure of ... I forget ... a metal of some sort!  Anyway, I liked the pattern and thought it might be kinda cool to incorporate it somewhere!
