    FOUND IT!

    Part of the 3d Starter Pack!

    Reset download!

    Ken :)

    A fantasy pack. That figures considering all the sets and costumes Star Trek recycled from Paramount's storage facilities.

    Next in my ongoing series of "works-in-progress that never end" is Johnny Romulan.

    TNG really was good at fleshing out the Klingons and introducing new races like the Borg, Ferengi, and Cardassians. But, I always hated what they did with the Romulans. From the v-shaped brow to the monsterous shoulder pads to the terrible wigs. Just god-awful bad all the way round.

    So, I went back to basics with this "neo-classic" design. Gone are the brow, the shaggy wig, and the shoulder pads. In are the chainmail tunic, half tabbard, and knee-length black boots. New are the sleeve cuffs, Nemesis-like sleeve insignia, and communicator pin (Thanks, ptrope!).

    I agree...the forehead of the week was one thing but adding the romulans was poor....if the vulcans are not ridged...and they are cousins of the romulans, it didn't jive. I say keep with what you have. We all have that love/hate with the romulans...keep up with you have done...I like it!

    You think about it, the whole "dressing like a sex slave" even though they are the dominate ones means they keep the men distracted and under control.

    Plus most women I know do actually like to look good, so it's no real biggy.


    Though it seems the mirror universe is a bit more sexually liberal than the original, for some reason.


    Anyhow, I wonder what a Galaxy or Sovereign looks like in that universe.

    Well, could be a genetic trait....especially with genetic drift....probably with location, too.

    I mean look at an Asian and look at a Caucasian, there are some visual differences.

    Grand Admiral Picard

    Now before you point fingers and say...um Paul you said this was going to be a female ruled Mirror Mirror Empire.

    It is...

    I respect the character, and see him in both universes as an enigma. He's dedicated to the ideals of the Federation...not to a person. I see him the same way with the Empire....As asked by my co-writer would this Picard be as cruel and sadistic as the Federation's Jean-Luc Picard is kind and compassionate? Dang Strait! Any thing to ensure his beloved Empire out lives every other alien society.

    Now about the morphs....

    The morph is Wertz's Picard, but because of some complications I had to employ some advice and assistance to get this render finished.
    I reached across the isle.....to MDBruffy and Shadowhawk1...both of whom are die hard Poser users that helped a Daz Studio user....thanks guys.

    The image turned out great Paul, I am glad that the fix worked for you and it should work well for all the other Wertz morphs you have, and don't worry that burning feeling like your skin is on fire, it will fade with time as you get used to using Poser! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Question: Where does Riker fit in all of this?

    OH! OH! OH! I know! I know!..... But I can't tell you, Paul would turn me over to Troi for giving away that kind of information! I can tell you that Riker's roll in the story is extremely...........

    Yes, everything is from Valiant except for the belt (M4 Fairytale Prince) and the holster (M3 Desert Soldier).

    Will this one be available to download?

    And TNG era Klingon clothes for V4 around here?

    Depending on what the day brings I may be uploading several new conversions from David Metlesits.

    The redo of the Enterprise-E is on the back burner as two more ships will get done first. The first one, after David's ships are done, will be a very long awaited Reman Warbird Scimitar (you may now drop a load in your pants!). The ship I have lined up after that is the TOS Enterprise by Raul that was released over at Trekmeshes recently. Why another TOS Enterprise, cause, this one has a nice shuttlebay and doors that will open!

    YES! ...Eventually. I still haven't hammered out the MatPoses problem I had with the Cardassian displacement maps. I just might release it without Mat Poses, just Material files.

    This is one of my first daz animations i ever did and it happen to be a star trek one..lol
    So finely a thread i can share it on :)
    be kind i was learning how to use daz in an animation when i made this video

    enjoy :)

    Nice animation. I only have one critique. That long skinny thing that your shuttle landed in at the beginning is a warp engine nacelle, not a secondary hull/hangar area. I am not sure if the Tamerlane even has a shuttle hangar, but if it did it would be a small area in the primary hull (saucer section), or maybe in the connecting pylon.

    Keep up with the animations though you are doing good work.

    Given the apparent matriarchal leaning of this MU, I'd wonder if some of the classes might not also reflect that Perhaps classes like the Empress, Regina, Dominatrix, etc. ;)

    I like your suggestions...the big question is, what would you call the Defiant class?

    That looks more like TOS- think Kang's wife Mara- than TNG. TNG didn't change the uniforms any from the TOS Movie era.

    Is this fix something a Poser user need worry about, or is it a Daz Studio issue? Either way, though, I think it would benefit the community to know what the fix is.

    I'm glad that you were able to help Paul; that render looks damned good.

    Coming soon for Ptrope's 23rd century bridge......

    Conversions of Mylochka's Captain On The Bridge poses for non-Daz characters - G2 Females (shown), Antonia, Kez, Mariko, Maya Doll, & Miki4. Michelle and Cythina will join them in Dec.

    As an added bonus, after I render out all of the poses, I'll do a separate pose pack for the chairs - why should you suffer through the pain I went through getting those chairs placed.

    You won't find anything in NG episodes. BUT, can anyone remember the name of the DS9 episode that brought back Kang, Kor and Koloth? They wore the closest thing to civilian wear you're likely to find.

    Found this screenshot from DS9 which at least shows the style of clothing worn by Klingon civilians

    The Trek basic- robes and tunics. The episode with Kang, Kor and Koloth used fur and hides- probably from Targs-in their outfits.

    I mean something like the males wearing,since we did see female Klingons in armor, too. "Matter of Honor" being a good example.
