Here’s a little something I did using my recently revamped Connie and newly built dock and shuttle. I did two versions, with and without the shuttle. Personally, I prefer the one with the shuttle but I know some will prefer to have an unobstructed view of the ship’s stardrive section, hence the other version.

Funny story. I had this all set up to render with the ship, dock and shuttle and the dock and shuttle lights. I started rendering. Many hours later, I came back and only a small portion of the scene had rendered and trueSpace said it still had over 25 hours left. So, I aborted the render. I deleted the shuttle and its lights and rendered the dock and ship and it only took a little over an hour. Then I rendered the shuttle by itself, which took about five minutes. I don’t know how you go from a little over an hour total to well more than a day just by adding a shuttle and shuttle light rig. Anywho, since I rendered it in separate layers anyway, that was what prompted me to do the version without the shuttle.
