Its classic LIU - big, white, smooth, and boxy. Oh, and don't forget crammed with computers...
About this creation
LIU Sacred Life - Medical Transport
The Ludgonian Industrial Union is proud to present the largest medical transport in our current arsenal, the LIU Sacred Life. When the LIU's Sacred Light project was shelved, the LIU Governors cried for something big. Here it is...
Its big, its boxy, and its white. Its classic LIU. The Sacred Life is a medical transport and an orbital hospital. Save your soldiers lives! Buy a fleet today!
While our Forward Deployment Hospital has been successful, it has its flaws. Let's face it, its hard and dangerous to attempt to land a hospital in the middle of a battle. The Sacred Life answers the problem. Keep the hospital in space and send shuttles for the wounded.
The Sacred Life's role isn't limited to hospital work. It also stores medical supplies and has quarters for several medics. Bring the Sacred Life into orbit and keep your ground medics supplied and rested.
Its the LIU's weak spot...building engines. Feel free to skip this photo.
We won't go into much detail with the exterior of the Sacred Life, there's enough photos as it is. However, you can't overlook these two reverse thrusters located at the front of the Sacred Life. They are that amazing. OK, maybe not, let's start inside.
The front of the Sacred Life, with the medic emblem, is actually a giant door. It opens and leads to the Sacred Life's Hangar Bay.
The Hangar Bay
The Sacred Life's hangar is large enough to hold the LIU Medi-Dropship. The dropship takes supplies down to the planet and injured soldiers back to the Sacred Life. An invisible atmospheric shield keeps the hangar pressurized when the bay is opened...
With the LIU Medi-Dropship removed, you can see the hangar in more detail. Red landing lights guide the shuttles during landings. In the rear of the hangar you can see the doors that lead to the first and second floors of the Sacred Life.
A blurry overhead shot shows the crew rushing about and our poor photography skills.
The left side of the hangar is home to a collection of computers. They perform diagnostic checks on incoming shuttles, control the hangar doors, and keep shuttle inventory. They wouldn't want the shuttle to leave without its band-aids.
This view shows the next shift of medics scrambling down the stairs to board the Medi-Dropship. Note the chemical and fuel containers in the corner and the window above. The window allows operators on the second floor to see an overview of the hangar bay.
The right side of the hangar has tools for quick repairs. Note the engineer struggling to load fuel. A few minutes after this photo was shot, the engineer was shot for spilling a load of fuel. With gas prices so high, its a capital crime.
One pic of the Medi-Dropship. It will be re-worked a little and reposted later on. Now, lets walk through the door and see the first floor.
Here's an overview of the entire first floor. Its known around the ship as the hospital level. (That's just a tidbit that probably doesn't interest you...)
Right inside the first level is the diagnostic room. All patients come here first. Trained specialists diagnose your injuries and set the best course of action. In other words, they decide if you go back to the battle, into surgery, into recovery rooms, or into the morgue. Its best to be nice to these folks.
Note the doctor healing a soldier at the bottom of this pic. Minor injuries, such as scrapes and cuts, are treated in the diagnostic room. The soldiers are then sent back to battle.
Here's the fancy diagnostic computer. Utilizing technology created at our Medical Research Institute, the computer does the majority of the work. The "specialists" mentioned above are nothing more than button clickers...
Across the hall from the diagnostic room is the Sacred Life's administrative office. These three workers keep detailed records of incoming and outgoing soldiers and supplies. They manage patient capacity and set appointments for surgery, medications, and sponge baths.
To the side of the ofiice is five recovery rooms. Injured soldiers, hooked to heart monitors, recover from their injuries here. It's hard to see the rooms from these close-ups, but you can go back to the overview for that...
A doctor brings her portable defibrillator to restart an older soldier's heart. CLEAR!
Bob, the ship's janitor, insures that the recovery rooms are spotless. His cart blocks the hallway. Why does he need a shovel? You don't want to know...
The surgery center is across from the recovery rooms. It consists of the observation room and the surgery room.
The observation room contains computers, a sink for scrubbing up, and a glass wall looking into the surgery room. A doctor stays in this room during surgeries to direct his counterparts.
The surgery room is where the action is! Here, doctors perform life saving procedures. Note the doc and his scalpel getting ready to remove a bullet from the patients abdomen. The doc has only left one instrument sewn up inside a patient. Its a LIU record.
Note how the patient is hooked up to a monitor that reads his temperature and heart rate. Or maybe its his brain waves... Who knows? We're not the doctors.
With all the casualities on board, a room full of medications and pain pills is a must. Medics also stock up in here before they are deployed.
Howard, the ship's pharmicist, has seen a lot of gore and death during his years aboard the Sacred Life. He dulls the pain with some self-prescribed pain killers. "Ahhhh...that's the stuff."
An elevator next to the surgery center leads to the second floor. Let's head up.
Here's an overview of the second floor. The majority of this floor is set aside for the medics and their supplies.
The room nearest to the hangar bay is the medic supply center. Here, medics re-supply and stock up on tools before they are sent into action.
Across the hall from the supply room is the hangar control room. Operators, that overlook the hangar bay, direct shuttle traffic and set arrival and departure times.
Again, here's the control room. An officer mans this room at all times.
The water purification room is adjacent to the control room. Its an important feature in a self-contained ship. However, its boring to look at, so let's move on. Starting to lose interest? Well don't. There are some racy shots of a female crew member coming up shortly.
This room, next to the water room, has four beds. Off duty doctors and medics catch up on their sleep here. Why does George wear his shades to bed? Because when you are a medic, you must go from sleep to cool in seconds flat.
The bottom bunk is a little cramped. The situation is made worse by having George sleeping above. The shade wearing medic hit up the bean soup in the mess hall...
Speaking of the mess hall, here it is. Off duty personell hang out here and wait for their next shift. Note the buffet line. Where does the food come from? That's classified.
There is a bathroom attached to the mess hall. Use the restroom, brush your teeth, and take a shower. Oh, by the way, here's the aforementioned racy pic. There's no privacy aboard the Sacred Life. Sexual harassmant complaints are common...
A female doctor washes away the days blood and grime. We better go. She doesn't look amused...
Across the hall from the break room is the intensive care room. Patients that are unable to be healed quickly are relocated to this room. This frees up beds downstairs.
Once again, its a morgue. Even the LIU loses a patient or two. The bodies are burned in the incinerator seen to the left.
Before burning the bodies, the ship's coroner identifies the victim using fingerprints and microchip technology. The casuality is then uploaded into the LIU's Fallen Soldier System. That's it for the second floor. Up to the third floor...
Don't worry, its not another entire floor. Its just the pilot house.
Four pilots and two officers make sure the Sacred Life makes it to the scene in one piece.
One last pic. Here's a size comparison between the Sacred Life, the Medi-Dropship, and a medic. Go buy a fleet right now!
Note: According to Galactic Accord No. 6,674,612,987.2 (Section A), ships clearly marked with medical ensignia are not to be targeted. However, no one follows rules (especially us), so you may want to opt for the Sacred Life with upgraded shield and weapon systems.
Hi Emperor. This has a great desing, there are not many people who makes interiors with such reality that you do. We really have the impression that those minifigs are alive in there, with beds and stuff. General Vaiano

the gratuins will buy 1400 of them with upgraded weapons systems weil
take care of the sheilds!
That's the coolest fat white plastic box I've ever seen...and boy, I've seen a lot of 'em. Great details and commentary, and a bonus smiley for our scantily-clad, medical shower vixen! Well done, LIU. Well done.
The greebling on the top is getting better, as is your interior detail. But you don't learn new techniques by building the same shape over and over again. Even though the LIU has an image to uphold, I suggest you branch out and try building non-boxy ships.
Voila! Nice to see you back ontrack, and I guess you're ready to accept a contract for 500 of these ships :)
Oh yeah, I love the texured squares that stick out, it gives the new meaning to "Le Swoosh".
"Its a classic! big, white, smooth, and boxy, crammed with computers!" haha wouldn't have it any other way! Another fantastic creation! I always enjoy all of the big smooth rooms and loads of computers you put in to these creations! Awsome work!
