Humanity discovered the relics of alien civilisations long before it encountered other life-forms themselves. When deep-space survey ships like the LL919 left their local sector they found strange ruins and abandoned artefacts on distant worlds like Mara. The next time they launched, the survey ships carried teams of civilian xenoarchaeologists. It would be decades before they even began to understand the objects they had found; over a century before their researches pointed the way to true contact. The Monolith couldn't be scratched, even with tempered diamond-tipped tools. Although initial survey missions were usually carried out by a solo pilot, the LL919 could carry science teams or civilian researchers. It was pretty cramped in there for long flights. Flickr album
Hello, I reccently rediscovered some of my old Tente sets hidden away, and decided to reinterpreted as Neo-Classic Space. Tente was a construction toy that was produced in Spain from 1972 to 1993. It felt much more brittle than LEGO and pieces snapped easily, however in the 80's, when I was spending long summers in Spain and was right in the target age group, they made some interesting sets (especially space themed), and I managed to collect a few. So far I've rebuilt 4 of the 5 space themed sets I have, Tente went in for a lot more domed screens than LEGO and had some interesting pieces that LEGO don't do, so a number of the sets have been changed significantly, but that was partly the point. I'd be interested to know if anyone else had Tente and if you've ever rebuilt them in LEGO. The original names of the sets are, from top to bottom, Space Patrol, Vigilantic, Pegasus and Krang, the orignial sets can be seen here: http://www.latentete.../?serie=Compact The whole Tente range is worth checking out; the best archieve site I can find is www.latenteteca.com/
