Star Justice: Saddleback
For when Star Justice need to transfer a prisoner into Space Police custody.
About this creation
Throughout the human colonies the forces of Star Justice work to maintain law and order, their remit to prevent crime in these far flung settlements. Normally these crimes are perpetrated or instigated by organizations such as Blacktron, Spyrius and 3vil/Space Skulls. In recent years these previously human dominated forces have made increasing use of Alien specialists (Blacktron specifically are thought to have welcomed some aliens into their organization) and this has led to the creation of transfer ships such as the Saddleback.



The Space Police remit is to deal with crime committed by aliens in human space, first to stop the crime and then to act as diplomatic contacts with the representatives of that alien race to either prosecute them under human law or return them to their own species for punishment.



The saddleback is actually a converted refrigerated container transport tug, chosen because of its ability to cope with maintaining several different types of atmospheric contents at different temperatures, handy when using the standard Space Police atmosphere specific containment units.



















Yeah, this is an ugly ship, so ugly it looks pretty bad from every angle, but itís stuffed full of weird building so I thought it was worth posting anyway.



Built in June 2009.

This is by no means ugly (although I like your modesty)! I love the racing stripes, the snowshoe tailfins, the garbage can greebles-- everything! By the way, can I use your idea of the garbage cans as cylinder heads on some of my builds?

Wow. You call THIS ugly?? The blue stripe in the middle looks great, and all the greebles and stuff too.

The blue stirpe right down the middle is perfect. The radial garbage cans on the nose are an unexpected source of justice. Attack!

I love the background story that you included. It's also amazing how you used the trash cans and the skis on the ship. Great moc!

We should all strive to be so ugly!

I get the feeling this is all engine, with just enough room on top for a cockpit and pilot on top of it. The prisoner containment unit, tacked on to fill a need by Star Justice, doesn't hurt the power of this beast when it's time to get somewhere in a hurry. Yeah, I love this one!

The exposed engine on the top and the massive engine pods on the sides were two personal standout favs of mine. Your advertising campaign for this should be "Saddleback. It's boxy, but it's good." That came from some movie with Dudly Moore that I saw years ago but can't remember the name... he was talking about Volvos. Have I rambled enough yet? ok, good. ~ Chris.

Nice bulky ship. I like it.

Love it, makes me want to write a novel just looking at it. It reminds me of my ol' Brewster Buffalo. Shot down a few aliens in that too. Right before they committed me to this here hospital.

Quoting Joris Blok This looks sooo playable! Have you swooshed it yet?
Oh yes! It's pretty swooshable, but the ski/engine build up has a tendency to fall off sometimes!

A worthy addition to the space police line. Too bad there was not a classic space, or pre classic space group on MOCpages to show case great, iconic builds like this.

An ugly appearence doesn't matter as long as the inside is beautiful, right? There are so many details and techniques here it makes my head spin... And the hull's smooth lines and curves makes this a... beauty!

Interesting use of parts here. I like the way you integrated those trash cans, and love the use of ski's in the engines! A very thought provoking MOC, in terms of building techniques...

Mark, this is ugly and beautiful in a utilitarian way! Not a stud or bottom plate to be seen. This is a marvel of alt building techniques (ABT?). This is another one to inspire!

It's not ugly in a bad way... you said it originated as a transport tug! Who's gonna care about looks when it comes to raw, transporting power? LOVE the building techniques here, it's a fine addition to the Star Justice arsenal.
