Nice little design i came across on Tinternet!
 
http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?start...&tx=127&ty=131

Was meant to be a Starfleet Transwarp Terminal, could be used for something else, or maybe even bought in as intended?!

Yeah, that is from perpetual which had the IP before Cryptic got it from the demise of that studio.

Some of Perpetual's designs were very nice, they even had designs for Cetacean Ops and other things done by Probert himself.

Someone brought this up a while ago.

While I really like the artwork, I just can't help think of Mass Effect when I look it. And looking at the date, Mass Effect beat Perpetual to the punch since Mass Effect and probably why we got the Borg versions instead.

That, and the Federation is better at the Borg's schtick than the Borg are. Where'd Starfleet get Transwarp hub tech? The Borg.

I shed a tear every time someone brings up Perpetuals concept work; they had such a strong vision for the game and it's a shame they were passed up for taking too long. Given the time, I'm sure they would have delivered a fantastic experience.

That's all they had was vision, but never had anything more, and that's why they are long gone.

You be surprised how many things from Perpetual made it into STO.

The Hegh'ta, the Destiny, the Aquarius seemed to be inspired by the Sacawagea. The Iowa became the Rapier. The Eave's Engineer ship, seems to be made using certain configurations of the Akira. The newer Starbase model was off Perpetual's.


Now for the interiors, it's up to Cryptic with their viability, but I think they could pull it off with an episode mission.

Is there actually a website where you can view all the concepts?
