"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP"

Leonard Nimoy, Spock of ‘Star Trek,’ Dies at 83

I really dont have anything to say here . the Man will be missed.. I adored this actor as Spock and he was the best "Alien" I think sci fi ever had on the screen - The actor was a awsome man .. The world is a poorer place with him not in it.

professordethorn 26th Feb 2015, 2:13 AM edit delete reply

Well you really knocked it out of the park!
jamie59 26th Feb 2015, 12:11 AM edit delete reply

That's a face of wonder!
Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 1:52 AM edit delete reply

Gali is totally blown away by this :D
Spelledeg 26th Feb 2015, 12:15 AM edit delete reply

Ohh wow.Definitely not daleks.

The pacing on this page is very nice, it captures the long seconds of discovering something really well.

I think I see some greenery cover and maybe a moon? Maybe an eye?(right side of visor) in the reflection.

Very nice :)
Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 1:54 AM edit delete reply

in the reflection its a view down one of the "slices" of the spokes of one of the smaller rings shes seeing one of Saturn's moons :D
leaking pen 26th Feb 2015, 12:16 AM edit delete reply
that looks like.. a long stone tunnel to me.
Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 1:54 AM edit delete reply

probably due to the nature of it :D
Haegan2005 26th Feb 2015, 1:02 AM edit delete reply

It reminds me of an artist rendering of one of the cylindrical colony constructions where the colony is laid out on the interior of the cylinder.

Very good! That is pretty dang kewl!
Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 1:55 AM edit delete reply

Your very close - it is a cylinder habitats and it is based on one of those constructs with trees and lakes and such :D
Timotheus 26th Feb 2015, 1:24 AM edit delete reply

It sorta reminds me of an oil film on water or the faux marble pattern on adhesive shelf paper. Except for the lunar space man holding a gun outline over her eye.
(Are we suppose to look for hidden wolves and skulls in the patterns?)
Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 1:56 AM edit delete reply

you can if you want .. im sure you will see all kinds of things :D
Dragonrider 26th Feb 2015, 2:32 AM edit delete reply

Typical for Dryads.
Fairportfan 26th Feb 2015, 2:57 AM edit delete reply

"Oh my God - it's full of stars!"

or

She's seeing the inside of Rama.

I've been getting an Arthur C Clarke vibe off this story for quite a while.
plymayer 26th Feb 2015, 4:46 AM edit delete reply

Exactly.
Kamy 26th Feb 2015, 8:09 AM edit delete reply

of course, someone done it...

But I would go with, "Ho my God, it's full of live !"

And it's no Rama... there's no 3-symetry :-p
Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 10:12 AM edit delete reply

Ill take that as a wonderful compliment :D
mjkj 26th Feb 2015, 4:06 AM edit delete reply

Wow, great page...

@alt text: seconded...

...great details <3

...is that ship really called Eden? It certainly would fit...

Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 10:12 AM edit delete reply

we shall see :D wait till next week :D things heat up!

(( actually the Eden comment comes from Galina's perception of it .. ))

Wow Centy this page is REALLY beautiful! I love the green lighting so much!
Centcomm 26th Feb 2015, 10:13 AM edit delete reply

YAY! thanks Serpenty!! I made this set almost a year ago finally getting to actually use it ! glad the lighting came off so well :D
sigpig 26th Feb 2015, 10:22 AM edit delete reply

More and more I'm getting the vibe of a Xeelee Spline Ship. Or B5's "Central Park" (the one you see when Sheridan is rescued by "angelic" Kosh in front of all the other races), or ST's Genesis Project in ST2 - TWoK. This is getting better day-by-day...
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 5:43 AM edit delete reply

I had to look that one up :D Im glad everyone is picking on just how BIG this place is :D
DizzasterJuice 26th Feb 2015, 2:47 PM edit delete reply

OHH! This is the part where Gali lands her spaceship on the Wicked Witch of the East and kills her and then a bunch of little aliens come out and start singing "follow the yellow brick road". I like this part!
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 5:43 AM edit delete reply

Munchkins - stage right please.. and on 3 we start the music !
velvetsanity 26th Feb 2015, 4:06 PM edit delete reply

This is so exciting!

I bet Kubrick's rolling over in his grave over not being around to turn this into a movie.
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 5:44 AM edit delete reply

Id be happy to discuss making it a movie .. it would be better than a rehash of whatever Hollywood is serving .. :D
Miyto 26th Feb 2015, 4:53 PM edit delete reply
Aaw, in order to avoid the great fire someone built an ark, how biblical...

Sarcasm aside, I hope someone irl gets to making colony ships each complimented with a full hydroponics bay/ ecosystem sooner than later. We kinda need an arc before WWIII gets started, or before resources run to low.
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 5:45 AM edit delete reply

heh - part of this is designed around a O'niel cylinder - Mister Black came up with the idea and me and Rose are running with it :D
Matt Knab 26th Feb 2015, 6:05 PM edit delete reply

Why travel to alien worlds when you can bring alien worlds to you? ;D
I'm sensing a bit of a Rama vibe, but with more biosphere?
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 5:46 AM edit delete reply

Not totally familiar with Rama .. but yeah theirs a lot of Bio sphere here as Galina is seeing Shes seeing all kinds of cool things :D
CyberSkull 27th Feb 2015, 5:40 AM edit delete reply

I should mention that I'm in the middle of reading Rendezvous With Rama right now.
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 5:47 AM edit delete reply

I need to actually read that.. ive heard of it lots of times .. shame on me.
Timotheus 27th Feb 2015, 6:37 AM edit delete reply

But you have to read it three times for authenticity.
DLKmusic 27th Feb 2015, 10:48 PM edit delete reply

I would actually prefer if you waited till after you finished the encounter before reading it, then comparing what you created to what Clarke did.

There's a lot about Luna Star that is Unique, and even though there are similarities, I would like to see your creation completed without you worrying about "is this me or is this Arthur C. Clarke".

This is you and Rose all the way! (and one of the best "first encounter" stories I've ever read, IMHO)
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 11:06 PM edit delete reply

I actually was going to I actually try to avoid reading about things im doing .. unless Im sure I wont contaminate my own work luckily we have a lot of this scripted out :D
CyberSkull 3rd Mar 2015, 2:43 AM edit delete reply

Your first contact here is already radically different from Rama, especially given what we know about the future from Datachasers.

On a side note, Arthur C. Clarke only wrote the first book in the series. The next 3 were written by a friend with his input.
DLKmusic 27th Feb 2015, 10:43 PM edit delete reply

Hey Cent, I know this is a shot in the dark, but knowing just how good you are with DAZ-3D, is there any possibility you could create a Leonard Nimoy model to do a cameo in one of your strips?

All of us who loved him would love seeing him one last time, and it would be awesome if it were associated with either Luna Star or Data Chasers. (he would make a great Nova Roma Senator, for instance).
Centcomm 27th Feb 2015, 11:05 PM edit delete reply

Thats actually a great idea,.. Im terrified I couldn't do him justice .. :( - And your right on all points.
DLKmusic 28th Feb 2015, 2:14 AM edit delete reply

If you did want to try it (and I know that's a big "IF"), I have complete faith in your artistic talents to do it right.

(you've already blown my mind too many times for me to think otherwise)
