An Interstellar Queen Starliner leaves Earth in the early hours of the day after the Alphan President’s meeting with the Terran Trade Authority. Escorting the ship are two Stingrays, Alpha’s most feared interceptors. Despite the commercial traffic going on, all are oblivious to the departure of the leader of Earth’s ally.
This ship is from again one of the most influential space operas of my childhood – the TTA. I liked the Interstellar Queen but the design was not that grand nor did it make sense; I modified it to give the feel of a proper space liner. The Interceptors were easy to do. The garish colours are staple fashions of the Alphan race who paint their ships in unusual patterns and taints.
My favourite part is the backdrop – saw a magnificent sunset or rise online, downloaded the colours and went from there. The lights were an experiment that went right, and the background ships are a real joy to me.
