Updated and expanded to include the space base Ice Station Destiny, the new rockets, and the Bright Hope.
About this creation
It's it's not finished, but it exists in real life. Yes, it's Ice Station Destiny for the Neo-Nexus Force. This base separates into two sections, one with the break room (on the right) and the science lab (on the left), though this will change to extended the landing platform towards the camera and two other sections of living quarters next to the science bay.
You can barely see it, but I put a stove in the break room to heat up coffee for the base workers. The dog in front is the base's community pet though it doesn't have a name yet... any suggestions?
The science lab, with the all-important coffee cup and lab equipment.
I removed the original cockpit from the "classic" LEGO Universe rocket, and replaced it with the one from the rare Nexus Force rocket poly-bag, number 55001. I then ordered two of the newly named Retro Rocket, and here is the proof.
These rockets split into three modular parts connected by Technic axles:
The two rockets all put together.
Here it is: The Bright Hope, the only vessel to escape from LEGO Universe. (except for a small fleet of fighters) This ship and here crew have already made alliances in this universe: the Norstas of the world of Beta Polaris, which happens to be very close to the inter-dimensional portal between the LEGO Universe and our universe. The Bright Hope also has a sister, The USS Shining Star, built by the Norstas as a part of their alliance with the newly rechristened Neo-Nexus Force. ( www.mocpages.com/moc.php/408646 ) These two ship are but the first in a long line planned of vessels constructed by the two nation-worlds.
Anyway, the ship features horizontal wings, but since the ship is landed they are swung upwards 90 degrees.
Here you can see the inside of the ship.
Here we see some of the Neo-Nexus Force, pilots, droids, and officers.
