Starfarer: Wildfire by AbaKon Starfarer: Wildfire by AbaKon
Well into interstellar space near the Sol system, Starfarer picks up a faint echo on her sensors. As Commander Thorian edges the ship closer, Pa-Kur begins to run a detailed analysis of the tiny object. After a good deal of searching, ACE identifies it as an archaic space probe clearly of Terran origin. However, this particular craft isn't in any of the ship's historical records. As Brill and Nystrom bring the relic into Starfarer's hangar bay, they are able to make out a name stenciled onto it: SCOOP-7.

----

Another classic moment from the adventures of the Starfarer. Okay, to be fair, I don't think this adventure actually ever happened - but the idea's just too funny. Thanks to the good folks at NASA/JPL for the .3DS file of Cassini (aka SCOOP-7).

I was gonna say, I don't remember "My Dinner with Andromeda"...
...or mopping up puddles of Brill and Nystrom in the hanger bay.

But a fun idea, none the less. So how did you convert the 3DS file to DAZ Studio?

Loaded it into Hexagon. Saved it as an OBJ file. Congratulated myself on being brilliant.

You are too kind. BTW - you might be interested to note that one of my starships in a long running SF campaign was named Dulcinea.

Dulcinea! That must be the most fair of starships!! The crowning ship of all fleets!

I must search her out! :D

She was a thing of beauty. Warp-8, X-Ray Lasers, Neutronium Hull. Sweet.
