Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Sci-FiThis MOC's story-line takes place after the first LEGO MMORPG (Lego Universe) was determined a failure and canceled at midnight on Jan 31st, 2012. This story suggests that the Nexus Force (the protectors of imagination in the game) was over-run by a huge armies of Stromlings (bad guys, agents of The Maelstrom, a chaos entity) and the decision was made to evacuate the remaining mini-figures inside Nexus Tower (The home of the nexus force) in the Bright Hope, and head for a tear in the space-time continuum to our Universe. Here is where the story starts: The Bright Hope was ejected from Nexus Tower during the final battle for LEGO Universe, fleeing to Gallant 5 and the space / time rip nearby. With her crew of 1 Grand Admiral (Bob) 6,000 crew, 7,000 soldiers, along with a handful of the best and brightest minds the Nexus Force could gather in their darkest hour. After reaching our universe (and sealing the Rip behind it), the Bright Hope searched for their new home, eventually settling on a small ice planet somewhere near the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy. A base camp was constructed, and after a time, the Bright Hope was sent on a new mission: to make contact with their new neighbors, and forge alliances while defending their new home from invasion from the forces of evil. (The front saucer was inspired by Eurobricks user hachiroku and his version of the 2009 Starship Enterprise.) The Bright Hope is powered by two Imagination Reactors and can reach 70% of the speed of light. It has 510 laser cannons, has consumables (food & water) capable of lasting 2 years, and contains a compliment of 250 fighter craft and 50 shuttles, plus 200 escape pods. The fighters and shuttles come from a landing bay in the center of the two two engine bays. The 2x2 curved slope on the front is supposed to have this CITY Arctic print: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=15068pb004 The Bright Hope's bridge (it is supposed to be located in the 4x4 dish on the ship model) features three seats, two for senior officers and the large swivel chair is for the Nexus Force supreme commander, which happens to be Grand Admiral Bob. The rear of the bridge is the briefing room with a large hologram projector in the center. (The bridge was heavily inspired by the 2009 Star Wars set 7754, Home One Mon Calimari Star Cruiser.)
