I want to get into a bit of Trek model-building. I've been looking around and it appears the most common scale commercially is 1:1000 with 1:1400 being seen a lot, too. I see a lot of 1400 ships that appear to be unavailable in 1:1000 scale so i'm looking hard at 1:1400. However, the Polar Lights 1:350 studio scale kits for Connie and Connie Refit look absolutely boss. They're just expensive as fuck (and that doesn't even include extras like lighting kits) - like $300 US. An additional cool thing about the 350's like the Polars is you can get a cheap Bird of Prey model in that same scale and have the classic film showdown in accurate size proportions for a marginal bit more time, effort, and cash. There is also 1:2500 scale mentioned on some forums but I haven't done enough reading to figure out what the significance is with something that small.

Another far-fetched idea I have in the back of my head is custom fabrication orders from China or 3D printing locally. It might be possible to group order or custom-make the various parts for Star Trek ships - bootleg style - and start our own kitbash club for way cheaper than the primo models. We could also do it in a more common scale like 1:1000 because a lot of people want quality models but not everybody wants them 3' long like the Polar Lights kits.

Also, miniatures and prop-replicas thread. Check the catalog for toys and merch thread.

What are sink marks? I've never made a model, but I'm interested.

It's 1/1000 scale, and is a little under 5 inches long (similar size to the Eaglemoss Oberth in your photo, I think?). It comes as part of a 2-pack with a Klingon Bird of Prey.

I'm pretty salty because the BoP seems to have received a lot more attention than the Oberth in its engineering and detailing. It's still got its share of blunders, though.

I've got one of those floating around my home somewhere. Every time I stumble over a few of my old Micro Machines, I'm disappointed when none of them are the USS Grissom.

Sink marks occur where plastic is molded relatively thick. The plastic contracts and "sinks" inward as it cools. Basically all of the gray patches in the WIP photo I posted (except for on the under-slung sensor pod) are areas where I had to fill visible depressions/sink marks. They molded the pallet section of the hull as a single thick piece, and so most of its flat surfaces had visible deformation.

Sink marks are a common thing in injection-molded plastic kits, but in a competently-engineered kit they're so small and shallow that they're practically imperceptible.

Apologies for the double-post.

I've just about got the Oberth to the point that I can start priming and painting. Just wanted to show off the detail that I added to the back of the pallet section of the hull. Because of how the kit was engineered, this area was molded flat and featureless, and a decal was supplied to represent these details.

A word for anyone who aspires to take model-building seriously as a hobby: this is why it's worthwhile to learn some basic scratchbuilding/fabrication techniques. These kinds of tiny details are often what take a model to the proverbial "next level" and in the case of a model as simple as this Oberth kit, it can make the difference between the model looking like a toy, or looking like a proper scale replica.

Why do Klingons never get their dialogue translated by the universal translator, and Klingon commanders always have to yell at their subordinate to speak English (?) and not Klingon when humans are around? Why do so many of the Klingon words Worf speaks go untranslated?

Why do so many Klingons speak English so well?

Just how complete is the Klingon language that was developed by the creators? I hear of people being "fluent" in it and being able to carry out conversations at conventions and such, but I've also heard of major shortcomings (e.g. there is a Klingon word for "bridge" of a ship but not for a "bridge" across water).

Also, general Klingon/Klingon language/Universal Translator thread.

I assumed English was the de-facto language of Earth by then, at least the civilized parts, and he was speaking English.

Of course he should be speaking French when he visits his family, but for production reasons I can see why that is glossed over.

Picard, Riker, Worf, and probably Data seem to be the only ones who understand any sort of Klingon, which goes conveniently untranslated when they speak it.

I do wish the producers would have put hard subtitles when Klingon is spoken.

Klingon was designed by a linguist to have its own syntax and vocabulary that all sounded like it came from the same language. I don't know if the language has a complete vocabulary, but it does have a complete structure.

A possible explanation for words not being translated is that one can decide what gets translated by the universal translator and what does not before speaking.

If Star Trek is in the future, why doesn't it have anime in it? They still have books, movies, music from Earth, and holographic entertainment. They have paintings and instruments and topiary and statuary. But not a single Miku figurine–why? Japanese people still exist. Was it just stamped out as part of the process of global "Federalization"?

I was always curious about the Romulans in regards to their motives and beliefs. There is a lot of lore surrounding them but almost nothing is really known. They don't seem to be concerned with others posing a threat to them although the mention of Garak caused a nervous twitch from a Tal-Shiar Sub-Commander Just how powerful are the Romulans really?

It always seemed they were all show but no performance; that while their ships TNG era had powerful weapons and strongly shielded they had no speed and were relatively fragile. Almost like they were compensating for something.

They also felt rather mysterious without actually being rather too edgy which really is rare to do all things considered.

Replying to a two-year old post, but I remember reading somewhere the Earth-Romulan war was mostly fought remotely with very long-range weapons. Battles would occur with neither side actually seeing the other. I would have really liked to see how ENT would have handled it.

I also like that idea that TOS ships are analog because Romulans would hack wireless.

I felt like I needed to get one thing off my chest in regards to Star Trek anons.

I have never watched TOS

This could also be why she got promoted straight to Vice Admiral from Captain; she was the Evil Admiral archetype personified so there was no need for her to putter around figuring the role out.

The difference between good and evil is only how effective their tactics. If you pick a stupid option and succeed, you're a hero; if you pick a stupid option and fail, you're a villain. Hilariously enough, I mostly see Janeway as a female version of Kirk; they both did things their own way, flew off their rocker all the time, and had to be restrained by cooler heads. You wouldn't have called Kirk "evil" because despite everything, he still got the job done. So did she, albeit requiring some pretty serious ass-pulls involving the Borg and time-travel. But then, so did Kirk, or did you forget about the whales?

Also, consider what admirals actually do. It's perfectly rational that they just put her in charge of any small part of the Federation dealing with the Delta Quadrant because she was literally the only commanding officer with experience.

TAS never fully used animation to come up with wild scenarios that couldn't be done in live action. The scale of that insectiod ship compared to the Enterprise in the first episode of TAS was memorable, then there was that practical joker episode with the rec room when the Enterprise was playing tricks on the crew. Aside from that most of the scenarios don't really leap out to me and I felt a good chunk of those episodes could've been done in the original series if it was never canceled.

I can't think of many TAS episode that I actually liked all that much, either. Maybe The Slaver Weapon? That's about the only one I felt which was worth a watch.

>kiloton-TNT equivalents

That's the real issue here, in order to outbang a conventional nuke you'd need a fucking huge rock. The tsar bomba had a yeild of 50 megatons, that's a 50 million ton rock at 3km/s. Sure, the rock is gonna be going a lot faster than that since it's got the whole distance from the moon to accelerate, but you'd still probably need a rock with a mass of tens or even hundreds of thousands of tons, and then you've got to build something that can launch it off the moon.

It would be far, far easier just to use nukes, and you don't even need to be on the moon to do that.

Not really. For one thing they cause radioactive fallout which really messes with your ability to occupy the cities you just bombed. An ability to precision-target military installations with large-scale destructive capabilities, that doesn't leave behind radiation is extremely valuable. There's also the whole matter that there is NOTHING THAT CAN STOP a million-ton rock hurtling in from space. A nuclear missile can be detected and shot down, and planes carrying nuclear bombs can be shot down. A giant rock? All you can do is run.

As for the logistics of launching it off the moon, don't forget that gravity is only 1/5th of Earth, and there is no atmosphere to slow it on the way. There's no need to use rockets; a simple mass-driver like a coilgun or railgun will do. So long as you can get it to L1 at around 80,000km above the Moon, even if it's crawling at that point, it'll keep falling back to Earth the rest of the way on its own.

True enough, but for the same reason it's incredibly hard to get it moving in the first place.

The change in gravitational potential energy moving an object from the surface of the Moon to L1 is something like 3MJ/kg.

Say you use a chemical gun. Combustion of H2 with O2 has an energy density of about 16MJ/kg, so ignoring questions of efficiency (e.g. heat loss), you're looking at around 200 kg fuel per ton of rock. An object dropped from the Moon has energy 15 times its mass in TNT equivalent. Together, fuel is worth roughly 75 times its mass in TNT equivalent rock delivery.

The US nuclear arsenal (in theory) could field something like 500-700 Mt of warheads. That works out to the equivalent of up to ten million tons of fuel for your gun. And you have to produce all of this on the Moon. And this ignores the materials required to actually build your guns.

A railgun has efficiencies of, say, 30% at converting electrical energy to kinetic, so that's 10MJ per kg of rock to L1, and thus 670 GJ per kiloton TNT equivalent. In other words, your yield is only 6kt per kt of energy input, and what you pay for that increase with is the massive amount of infrastructure to support many (you need to be able to launch many in a short time, after all) impossibly large guns on the desolate Moon, and the massive power supply they would need.

And launching it aside, think of what it would take simply to carve out a thousand ton rock and move it to the gun!

ANONS:

Does anyone have a copy of William Shatner's 911 call after he murdered his wife oops I mean she accidentally drowned?

I heard it years ago but didn't save a file, and now all the internets seem to have is the transcript, without his shitty acting performance. Thanks in advance.
