The Undaunted Benefactor is an ex-troop transport ship retrofitted by Zed Corp to serve as a Humanitarian Relief ship. The Benefactor is now under the control of the Velegrad benevolence fund, and is mainly used to provide humanitarian relief to the other, less prosperous planet in the Velegrad system.
The ship has been refitted to carry modules on both sides, these can be used for a variety of things, such as a first aid module, escape pods, refugee evac pods, aid drop pods, or extra cargo capacity.
About this creation
The current fittings on the Benefactor are a escape pod for the crew, aid drop pods to be sent from low orbit to the more unreachable sections of a planet, a first aid module, a septic tank mainly for the crews use, but also for medical waste.
The Ship has had its slip stream FTL drive stripped out as the space was needed for living quarters, and most of the Benefactor's business is in system and so convention travel was all that was needed. Similarly the main weapon turrets and missile batteries were stripped as they were seen as unneeded and to dangerous for civilian use. However one howitzer was retained, as they can be equipped with stun grenades to control unruly refugees.
The ship has a constant flight crew of 2, a pilot and a commander, then there are 2 addition humanitarian workers, and depending on modules, a medical team.
The ship has a fully developed interior;
There is a cargo bay that can be used to carry medical and food supplies but also can ferry refugees. These can be suplimented by additional cargo modules.
There is a significant section of the ship devoted to the crew, with full cabins, and washroom facilities (toilets only - curry night is usually banned on this boat)
Each module is completely compartmentalized and maintain independent atmosphere with the use of airlocks
And the medical module is only equipped to deal with the most important or dangerous casualties, The Undanted Benefactor is NOT a hospital ship
But rather the module is designed for relieving and helping the current first aid and hospital teams at the sit of the disaster.
The Last section of the ship serves many purposes, before it held the slipstream device, but now is contains the eating and cooking facilities, which arfe linked to the convention spacedrive at the uttermost rear of the ship.
The rest of this section is taken up by the command area, which is a tow tier system with piloting and navigation at the top, and engineering, environmental, fire control and command situated at the bottom.
Here we can see the good work the crew and ship of the Undaunted Benefactor is doing on Velegrad 3, a planet in the inner rotations of the Sun, that has recently experienced a civil war. It's considered Velegrad 1's duty top help the other planets in its system.
A message for Earth,
This is a colossal build for me, it may only be 68 studs long, however its the largest ship I've ever built, and has a full interior, which I have always aspired to, since I first started on this site 4 years ago.So I would really appreciate feed back, and in advance apologies for such bad editing.
This is pretty sweet! The colors are nice,the interior is mind blowing, and the cockpits great! My only complaints would that it's kinda square and maybe the round 1X1 floor looks a little funny...but those are so minor! The shape is unique, and so is the floor! Beautiful job!
I love this ship. The fact that it's studless puts it over the top. All the rooms and little details, how did you make the smooth 1x1 circles for the tile? Or are those pieces? I haven't been on here for a while so maybe they've finally started making those lol. Anyways, great job, keep 'em coming. Can you check out some of my stuff if you get the chance? Thanks!
Wow, absolutely fantastic. You have combined everything. SNOT Techniques, Ship building, room building, etc. One thing to add: Possibly add a bulge in the ship on top for the bridge. Unless,however this is a build of a ship you didn't think up.
Mr. Hayden. I really like the deliberate use of asymmetry in this ship. It is boxy, but only in the best way. That white med pod sticking out of one side really creates a solid style. I would add another pod, in a different size, but with the same color, and try to nest it in the hull so it protrudes at a 45 degree angle to the main hull. It would further enhance the look you have already captured, and while it might displace some of the excellent interiors of the current lay out, it would balance out over all, because you would have a whole new deck to fill in. It's a cool ship, and I like your images of the mission in progress. Attack!
Great build, Hayden. I like the overall shape. The asymmetrical look really works on this one. I am also impressed by your fearless use of the color. There are a lot in there, and that has a danger of muddying the design, but not so in this case. It really turned out well. I also like the interior that you worked out. I only wish you had a little more space in there to further develop the interior work. That doesn't diminish your MOC though. Nice work.
Simply astounding, the assymmetrical shape is really cool, the stand-out medical bay is a great idea. The detailed interior is full of awesome details too, but my favourite one is the robot head on the ship front, almost like a badge. Awesome!
