Thank you very much, glad to have an audience that i can share with. When I am not gaming or making websites or  graphics or movies.. I council teenagers online. I created Teen-Conscience Many gamers over the years have come to me for help with their problems ranging from teen angst, broken heart, to more serious cutting themselves and suicide contemplation. I'm happy to report that i haven't lost anyone.  One 14 year old was cutting himself. Emotional cause was  mostly to do with his father. I after a few tries convinced him to talk to a teacher he trusted, from there to the school councilor and finally his mother.  Now 3 years later he has a 23 year old girlfriend, has a renewed interest in school, and getting a developed education. Bear in mind i don't take credit for  success stories like this, They are the ones that did the work.  I befriended them, helped them see the better parts of themselves, and offer options on how to rectify the situation positively. So anyway after all of that i decided to erect this website. To provide information that may help, or inspire someone, plus an example for others who wish to help as well. Most were emotionally heart wrenching to me. When i started i was much more emotionally sensitive than i am now. Thankfully. You'll see on the bottom of the site i dedicated the site to the  boy who was cutting.

you said "You certainly exemplify the Star Trek philosophy" I believe star trek had changed my philosophy growing up. To always want to do the right thing, or whats right. Even in the face of opposition or aggression. being there for someone gives them hope, and makes you feel like your worth something. To me Star Trek philosophy is something i wish everyone took to heart. Something that is worth fighting for.

 Awesome! Mind you, Star Base 10 is way larger than a K-7 station. heh heh.

As to the font question, I have no idea. That is Operations, not command. And, what with the new website opening soon, the font may be different soon anyway.

Oh, and Commodore JeffT? Please try not to put "work" and my name in the same sentence ... it makes me nervous.

Oops… I did say work…. Sorry about that BLZBUB.  :startrek089:
Sends over a beverage and some cookies.

Nice work on the Lotus banner Jack!!! The font looks GREAT too!

I’ve enclosed an image of Star base 10 as it currently appears as reference for you to play around with... if you want.

The ships in the fleet thus far (just as a reference for you to choose from) include:

Akira
Ambassador
Defiant
Excelsior
Intrepid
Nebula
New Orleans
Nova class
Prometheus
Steamrunner


Choose whatever looks best/ fits in.

New ships are coming soon and several of these will be retired soon… and the ambassador class itself is already mostly destroyed (i.e. the Artemis).

Excellent work helping out with the teens and such Jack… not any easy task by any means.  :startrek078:

Ok i woke up this morning at 6 am read your post it is now 8:14 am cst and i just finished making these. bear in mind i made about 15-20 different images  before arriving at my current finished work.



i presenting one with a transparent background



after that i got bored and made this



don't think i expect you to use these. I do this to many times in a year for various people, clans guilds etc for free. not all of them get used. So there's no pressure on you guys, however i will do w/e i can to make something you would like. :) My wife said i should leave the lotus flower out, she says the starbase is the real lotus.

Wow Jack... These look GREAT!

I just attached these designs to a post on the new site-in-progress and asked for feedback.

I'm hoping that everyone involved in the build will like them and/or at least provide some responses/suggestions or whatever.

In terms of the larger image, I totally agree with your wife as well.

I'm going to go and register on your site now!

Okay I registered, but I couldn't post anything... I'm guessing that the forum is locked?

ok i just set your access you should be able to post in  non restricted forums. Verify please. As for the images; The big one as with the banners i searched Google images looking for proper images to use and cut out in Microsoft Photo Premium 10.  Found the background placed the station and ships, made the text in photoshop but modified it's colors in Microsoft Photo Premium 10, rendered the image in gimp 2 placing the lens flare. Then finalized it Jasc paint shop pro, utilizing  contrast, clarify, color saturation, and edge preserving softness, then sharpening. I learned how to do all of this on my own.  In 2001 when i created my first clan for the game star trek bridge commander, i needed someone to make graphics for logos and stuff. So i learned it all on my own, through trial and error. Using a lot of different programs over the years. The ones i mentioned are my primary ones i use now.

 To quote a Klingon officer ... "Impressive!"

 The large image is now my desktop wallpaper. :-)

It's now my new desktop background as well.  :startrek012:

*Note to Captain BLZBUB... I'm mapping out his coodinates in the transporter buffer and also setting up a series of nanoprobes as a backup... just in case.  :startrek006:

Next up, set aside one of the new offices in the Operations Department
