Remeber the cs set 1593? The one that combined two cs sets to ceate the wierdest looking spaceship ever? Well, at 48 studs long, here's my alternative.
About this creation
After ages of sorting to find the parts to the complete 1593 set I began trying to build my own set from them. Iused all but 17 parts, 2 less than than the original designers. They had left 15 and if you can believe it, the two cocpit parts were part of that out basket. Anyway, I hope you like this, I found that the parts limit challenge brought out the most cs result I've had in ages.
Wow, that's a great idea and the result is awesome! I'll have to try that, too. We had the 1593 set, too (it was a promotion set, in our case from a "book club"). I still have the instructions and the bricks must be in my "classic collection" in the basement. But before starting with an alternative, I'll build the original Starfleet Voyager. I always loved the ship, but didn't buy it, after all. Anyway, great job on this one! :-))
This challenge brings out the childhood nostalgia. I remember having only a few sets back in time, and it did result in some of the strangest designs. The elongated ship and the tyre nose cone are quintessential invention. I'm sure you had fun on this build!

Couldn't agree more. I have the 6880 Surface Explorer, in fact it's one of my favs; I remember thinking that the 6929 Star Fleet Voyager was a bit goofy looking for my tastes. But the combination of the two was just plain ridiculous. However, what you've done here is rather interesting, seems more in line with the original CS designs while still keeping the Voyager details like the array. I have to say that I like it now. Excellent!
Love it. And the superp lightning in the first pic! The old style ships will forever haunt a true CS builder. I love the way that the old ship-designs don't have so much greeblings. Not that I don't like greeblings. But I mean, it is very unpractical in some cases.. Think about it, if a car should have no panels..:) Exelent...
I like the antenna, and the sleek long look, the buggy is well designed too, from looking at the entire cs collection, I found that only a handful where really great, it s mostly what you can do with the parts that s interesting, just looking at your creations is a great example of how cool they can turn out!
At it again I see. Let's face it friend, you're a CS junkie and I don't think you will ever kick the habit. Not that you have to, I'm just saying! Sadly this is one set I never had in my collection so I'll simply admire your musings here as I have done so many times before. Cheers mate!

Wicked set up there, Chief! Especially that antenna array, pretty serious looking! You're on a roll!
hehe, yeh I was looking at a fair bit of parts yet to be used and thought what on Earth to do with them and before I knew it, muscle memory kicks in and I build a GAIA style radar assembly and whack it on!

Very nice my friend. Here again you have built something really classic. The sleek design of the ship is really nice. The radar dishes are made really cool. I love this set. How much?
Hehe, what ever you can get a 1593 for? ;) Cheers dude, I had so much fun trying to build to constraints of a set parts list.
