About this creation
IN REALITY:

This ship was originally set 70816, Benny's spaceship (x3), with the Unkiitty seat and radar dish removed in favor of a skylight and laser gun turret instead. The sliding wings were redesigned to be stationary and thus provide space under the turret for commander Bob. The ship also has separate passageways for crew to walk so they don't have to go outside to go to Bob, engineering, or the bridge. Oh yeah, and it's orange now!

I was inspired to build this model by this cool ship by Oran Cruzen: www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/433209

IN FICTION:

The Bright Future was designed with help from Benny the 1980-something space guy. This heavily armed ship was designed to replace the lighter Bright Hope, which was heavily damaged in a firefight between two Maelstrom Void-Ships. (The enemy was defeated with help from the allied Nortsa sister ship Shining Star and the Odyssey II space laser, but at great cost.)

The glaring problems in the design of the Bright Hope led the design crew to the master space-designer Benny, who in turn took his original SPACESHIP(!) design to the next level with more armor and sleeker wing profile. The wings were then redesigned to reduce hyper-space speed but allow for greater range. Bob was even given an office where the wing extender mechanism was!



The bridge has three seats for crew and plenty of computer parts to keep them busy. (the front canopy lifts up to access this area)

Engineering is where reactor core temperatures are maintained and laser guns trained on targets and fired. This area is where four figures can sit back-to-back. (the skylight folds upwards to access this area)

Bob's office is at the rear of the ship where you can seat the figure of the Neo-Nexus Force's supreme commander. (the roof turret lifts away for access to this area)



The rear of the ship has three engines and a rotating, elevating quad-gun turret.



No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you: The Bright Hope (on right) still exists, and has not been destroyed to make the Bright Future (on left).
