Finally finished a scene recreation that I had in mind for a long time.

    WOW,
    that's a really great scene. Really great job.
    I have a new background picture.
    TOP.

    Outstanding work, as always. The terrain looks real.

    Great work! I always wanted to see a high resolution version of that scene.

    Very nice.
    I only have one small nick-pick and that the scale of the people in the picture.
    Looking at the airlock at the side of the hanger door, it looks like its two stories high compared to the people on the hanger deck and possiable that shuttle as well. The Shuttle and people on the hanger deck looks to be in scale with each other but not with Voyager herself.

    But apart from that I am really liking this Picture.

    I love this shot, but there's something in the composition that doesn't quite work and breaks the illusion for me. I think it's the colors and the way the ship looks like its lit differently than the planet (one looks cold, the other warm).
    Still, overall I love all the little details this has, great work!

    Its the same sun, sky, environment.
    I have completely re-done the textures of Voyager and gave it the same blueish ground tone than the studio model.

    Thanks for the hint

    What a great scene. Fantastic work, @nightfever. There does appear to be a scale issue, as @Freak mentioned, but I think it's perhaps the size of the door next to the shuttlebay itself being too tall.

    The only thing that looks 'off' to me is the shuttle using the tractor beam - something looks off about either its materials or the lighting on it - it just doesn't blend well into the rest of the scene.

    Regardless, it's a fantastic shot.

    One question - why are the coils sitting on the ship looking like they're attached to the ship? It looks like a panel has been lifted off and they've been directly attached?

    Looking at this shot (I have absolutely no memory of this in the show, but found it on Youtube), it appears that they've mounted the coils on some sort of hovering platforms to work on them.

    I liked my idea that the panels could reveal maintenance slots and tools.

    Looking at this shot (I have absolutely no memory of this in the show, but found it on Youtube), it appears that they've mounted the coils on some sort of hovering platforms to work on them.

    Either that, or the hull itself can passively repulse individual hull panels so they double up as hovering platforms for the coils (which are heavy).
    Starfleet ships are supposedly made of composite programmable quantum metamaterials. If modified for this specific situation, I don't see why the coils couldn't be mounted on the hull panels for maintenance.

    Though, to be fair, I wouldn't expect the crew to do all this work. Automation would be best suited for this task (not to mention far faster).
    Also, you'd think that by the late 24th century, self-repair systems would would include maintenance and upgrades - its not beyond their capabilites.

    I know the FX department wanted it to look busy, but this kind of work (or majority of repair and maintenance we've seen internally) would not really be done by the crew at all.
    I'm actually saddened by distinctive lack of automation in Trek. And you can still train the crew on these matters so they understand how the tech works and how to repair it should the need arise, but given all the sensors and backups Starfleet integrated into all their ships... it removes the need for people doing any kind of repair/maintenance/upgrades.

    Heck, the shuttles have voice controlled computers with transporters, replicators and tractor beams... I just find that the writers progressively forgot just how powerful and capable Federation technology is (for the sake of the drama).

    To get back to the matter at hand... @nightfever, the scene looks really good... though I do think Voyager's lighting would need to be modified somewhat to better reflect its environment.

    I thought I had seen all of Voyager, but don't remember this episode. Do you know the title of the episode and which season it was?

    I just watched the opening of that episode nightfever has pretty much nailed the scene! Thanks for the info.

    Epic, love it. Makes more sense than how they built the JJ-prise on earth!
