The renders as opposed to the animated GIF of the same ship?

P.S. There are some AMAZINGLY hideous ships on that ussmiranda site.

Yeah, the renders remind me very much of TRA's work. The reason I'm getting all uptight about this is that he's a friend of mine (sort of...) and a fellow moderator at another forum, and I don't want to see anyone ripping off of him.

Unfortunately, since Trekmania went down (though it should be coming back up within a few weeks), I can't email him. :( Maybe I can ask one of the admins to do so.

Well, compare the second image on that "ussmiranda" page with this from Ex Astris: http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/artic ... mark-1.jpg and you'll notice that it's the exact same render, only cropped to remove the credit and then shrunk. So, yeah, I'd say it's The Red Admiral's model, all right.

Not to mention the fact that they've got Stress's Star Empire up there, incorrectly idenfified as the Federation-class dreadnought. ;) Hell, they even give him credit for the design, rather than Franz Joseph and/or Diane Carey. :D Who is the guy running this website, and what is his major malfunction? :rolleyes:

Wow, this dude needs to step back and take a look at some of this stuff. His ship descriptions are copy-and-pasted from multiple sources, but he doesn't bother to try and have them make sense with each other. My favorite is in the Intrepid-class "aeroshuttle" page, where the first paragraph (apparently from one source) says that the ship is capable of speeds up to Warp 3, while the second paragraph (hopefully from a second source) says that it doesn't have warp drive at all. Despite the clearly visible warp nacelles. :rolleyes:

I say we report him to all the people who he's ripped from and let them tear him apart... [img]graemlins/eviltail.gif[/img]

Maby a (not so) friendly e-mail might be more appropriate for starters, at least give the guy a chance to make amends.

Of course, he may have permission to use all this stuff... ;)

The Red Admiral has confirmed at SCN (don't go looking, it's in the mod forum) that the webmaster does not have permission to use those images.

There is good in being at two different forums... ;)

You have to admit though, it is satisfying to hurt (tear, rend) plagiarizers... ;)
