HAPPY BIRTHDAY to :iconturbulence1973:!

An idea I had for his Gamma Fleet Operations, featuring two of his ships, the Sovereign-class U.S.S. Honor and the Nebula-class U.S.S. Monitor.

The title related to the disposal of the bug shaped Jem'Hadar fighters...

COMPOSITION: Starfield rendered and then composited with my nebula matte painting in Photoshop. Scene setup and render in Lightwave with final composition (including all FX) in Photoshop.

MESHES: Nebula class by Luca Silingardi, Sovereign class by Ralph Schobert, Danube class Runabout by Thomas Slanitz, Peregrine class by Arctorus, Hideki class by D. Bates & Jem’Hadar fighter by William Burningham.

It's nice to see a Sovvie that doesn't have NCC1701-E slapped on it's hull.

Great Work!

Thank you. Yeah I pay attention to that. It's obviously an Ent-E base, but I change the details. If the 3D model doesn't allow for it, then Photoshop will have to step in. In this case I believe it was the latter. ;)

Those jem'hadar ships do look like beetles now that the title brings it to my attention.

That's what the official term was; "Jem'Hadar bug". Thank you.

Another great action scene. The contrast is just right. And I always thought of the nebula as a very capable combatant.
