The Ludgonian Industrial Union is proud to present another special episode of LIU Atlas. Today, we take an inside look at Doog's new ship, the Magellan, and we meet some of Doog's crew.
Doog: "Hi folks, it's me, Terrance "Doog" McDoogal. Today, we decided to bring you an inside look at my brand new ship, the Magellan. Due to our soaring ratings, err, well, our somewhat significant ratings, .... fine, our thirteen viewers, the LIU has finally bought me my own ship."
Doog: "The Magellan, salvaged from an old line of LIU cargo ships, is a faster than light ship. Its speedy engines and large fuel reserves make it perfect for traversing the LIU Galaxy."
Doog: "It's a bit cramped inside, especially with a crew of six, but it's a lot better than the most LIU TV2 ships."
Doog: "Dozens of extra fuel tanks insure that we can travel the galaxy without stopping for gas every five minutes."
Doog: "The engines on this baby are classic LIU, crappy. But all in all, they get the job done. There are FTL engines for interstellar travel and atmospheric engines for landing on planets."
Doog: "The Magellan's cockpit can break away serving as a one person life boat. So, at the very least, our pilot Hugo can survive. Of course, the rest of us would die in a fiery ball of doom. I'd like to thank the LIU for that feature."
Doog: "The insides don't have much to look at, so we don't show much of it. But we have included pictures of the ship's editing room. Trust me, you don't want to see the crew's quarters, in fact, you probably don't want to smell it either."
Doog: "The editing room gets a lot of action on LIU Atlas, especially after Mordax, and well, I have a tendency to say stupid things. Right now, behind me, my editor, Timbo, is finishing up LIU Atlas - Obex. It should be out in a few weeks."
Doog: "Well folks, here's the guys that make LIU Atlas possible, Timbo, the editor, Cam, the camera guy, Mike, the sound dude, and uhh, that old guy. What's that? Oh yeah, that's Oldie, the director. Well, that about does it. Thanks for joining us!"
it s cool do develop on the crue s story-background, the ship looks great, even though it does nt seem to fit the crew s inside, the ship looks like a semi transport tractor, i guess it would be cool if you d combine it with the cargo planet, just a tought, semis from space! good show!
Ya, I'm looking at your ships for inspiration on what I'm didling around with on my desk. Oh ya (I'm supposed to mention this aren't I), I like how this is made (for some odd reason) can't quiet say for sure why. >Eric
"So, at the very least, our pilot Hugo can survive. Of course, the rest of us would die in a fiery ball of doom. I'd like to thank the LIU for that feature." Hahaha that little bit did it for me! Excellent moc, who knows you could be flying around in your cruiser and suddenly your on TV, waving like a moron in your cockpit!
The ring of fuel tanks is a new technique which I haven't seen before from you; I like how it joins the engine and body sections of the ship. The shaping around the front and sides of the vessel give it a sleek look despite its boxy shape. Amazing work.
This HAS to be a first, who else would build a tv crew ship? I like it lots, and I gotta say the engines are very non-craplike and actually look really good. It seems a bit too small for the crew but all in all it's awesome.
That Doog, what a goof. Nice ship though. I'm hopin' we see the pilot escape and the ship plunge planetward to it's fiery doom. Now that's good tv and I'm betting those guys don't have a good retirement package. see ya. garth
