Update 2020 (5)

Just wasted a considerable amount of time on a project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I would like to have a series based on ships of the Federation that have gone unnoticed. I figure there are lots of ship types (given the size of the Federation) that were designed and then forgotten.

Anyway, I went to my archives as I have a few of these already done and put the following together. I had forgotten what a mess this mesh was. The texture tree was so wonky and I had originally made all these weird specular maps. I had also tossed (or lost) the original PSD files so I tried to start over. Ultimately I gave up and just did a basic ambient and shadow pass then called it a day.

Back Story

The DeGamma class was a purpose built early warning ship built after the Romulan incursion of 2265. The report sent back by the USS Enterprise showed the Romulans had developed cloaking technology that made the neutral zone bases vulnerable (a modern day Maginot line). The response was a medium size cruiser utilizing strong deep space scanning. The scanning equipment was housed in the back half of the engineering section. This gave the ability to probe for ship movements beyond the Romulan side of the neutral zone where cloaking would not be needed. With the further revelation of Romulans appearing to be related to Vulcans, or at the very least being able to pass for one, the ship was covertly designed and given a cover as a extended range surveyor. Only a small number were built.
