I first saw Trenches at the Farpoint science fiction media convention in February of 2009. It’s great. I wrote a short review of it at that time which you can find here:

These are, of course, preliminary, with lots of parts and pieces yet to be added and lots of detailing to be done. Much of it is still subject to change but I felt it was time to move beyond the concept sketches, especially since Dennis and his team are starting to look at 3D assets for the effects work.

Other news: We’ve been invited to make a presentation about Polaris at the upcoming Farpoint science fiction media convention, the weekend of February 12 to 14. More about that in a couple of days.
