While the Admiral was out on a mission to the Delta Theta colony, his girls somehow found the password to unlock his prized Dart
, tweaked by Cochrane himself!
Apparently, they didn't know about the network of surveillance probes hiding out in space, one of which managed to catch a clear shot as they passed by at nearly warp speed.
The first image I've done of the Dart
, specifically, in a few years, and thus the first to take advantage of some of the improvements in Poser since v. 6. I had to do the IDL in a second pass so I didn't wash out the lighting on the ship, but 2012 is now fast enough that multiple passes are no longer such an obstacle.

Thanks for the inspiration, as always!
