The universe of Polaris

  • The Transhuman Authority a warring empire spawned in the pitiless wastes of interstellar space, determined to rule the human race - or destroy it.
  • Polaris a starship of the United Worlds Navy, pursued by the Authority and lost in the uncharted reaches beyond the Milky Way.
  • Phaidros a planet that cannot exist…yet does. To find their way home again, Captain Sam Fredericks, scientist Valerie Young and the crew of Polaris must decipher its mysteries.
  • Their discovery will forever change humanity - if they live to tell about it!

Jason says

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.

More cool views of the mesh can be seen in our new Models and Animations gallery as well as at VektorVisual.

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.

    I do like the idea of a vertical ship,… nice. The concept sketch I like best is the one with the open sections on the upper/lower leading edges.
    In your design explorations, did you consider a version that has a full (uninterrupted) power-ring at the back?

    The show sounds interesting and I already have it book-marked and RSSed.

    All the best,

    Wow - thanks, Andrew. It’s great to see you here.

    Vektor is currently the primary designer on the ship, and he may have some observations about the design iterations - I believe we did have a full ring on the back at one point.

    Sorry to all about the time-lag approving comments this week - the spam filters on Wordpress leave something to be desired and we’re getting a lot of spamborg hit-and-runs.
