A WIP shot of a science vessel centering around the UFO line form 1998. I am trying to I expect it to be something of a minimalist SHIP, although it is about 87 studs long as I write this.
About this creation
The ship is intended to be a science vessel
The rank/duty is set Star Trek style with grey=yellow. Also it sucks less to be a red guy.
The Droids recharge from power stations. You can see a red droid exiting one in the picture of the Hanger side 1.
Below are some more detailed interior shots I took upon request.
This is The Bridge.
This shot was taken at the back the part of the Hangar that I have completed. At the end is The Bridge.
A shot of inside the observation tower.
Hangar side 1.
Hangar side 2
Part of the Shuttle bay a.k.a. The Pit, without the shuttle.
Back to Front shot.
The group of EVA droids.
Shuttle Bay with Shuttle (Techno Instigator)
One of the two turrets.
Armory/ docking space
The outside greebling of the ship (it is symmetric for either side)
Still not done yet!
Anyways, thanks for viewing this extensive WIP any comments/criticism as well as any help is greatly appreciated!
Well the outside of the ship has way too much black, and practically zero grey, and that is what is giving you the blacktron feel, also try mixing in some red in places as aswell.

Shoot I thought I was working on a big ship but wow this dwarves anything I can make. The shear size of this is impressive and it seems you're going the extra mile to make an interior for this ship as well.
About the seperating technic beam I think you just need to reinforce it by adding another beam along the side and conecting the two via pins, then perhaps connect it to the pillar it's attached to (or anything else that's secure for that matter) using more technic pins and beams. Then it should stay in place.
You've got an impressive collection of trans-neon green parts ! This WIP looks good so far, even if it looks more Blacktron II than UFO in my opinion, but nevermind, it's gonna be cool when finished :-)
