  1. This vessel, (called Project Upsilon) was Classic Space forces secret weapon against any potential uprisings of any alien, robot, or human race outside of the Galactic Space Congress. I say WAS because it's death-star level super laser was never used due to a planted Blacktron bomb sending the station and it's crew hurtling through hyperspace toward a black-hole in early 1988 during the early hours of the attempted Blacktron coup. The station was never recovered and almost all of the crew was presumed killed by the black hole except for blue astronaut Benny, who fell off the station before it reached full light speed while doing regular maintenance to the solar arrays. (Benny survived a day floating out of conciseness in orbit off Jupiter II before being found by retreating Congressional forces. He still wears the broken helmet and smudged suit from that day as a reminder of the eternal sacrifice of his fellow two crew members that were lost. He was, for a time, secretly considered with suspicion regarding the loss of the ship by rouge operatives of the Galactic Space Congress' black ops division.) Thirty-one years later in 2019, the station is found floating in the very far-off Delta quadrant of our galaxy, completely iced over. The crew are flash-frozen from that horrible day in 1988, and the main computer is barely running on emergency battery power. The clock on the computer is checked by Benny himself: over 200,000 years have gone by! (The ship went inside the black hole which deposited the ship in the very distant past via a time vortex.) The fusion reactors are restarted, and the barely-functional computer begins to wake up the two crew. Then it is discovered that a third frozen astronaut is on board in Benny's bunk, a pink one, who was not on board when the ship was blasted off towards the puncture in space / time. Who is she? Why is she there? The answers may lie inside the thawing mainframe core of the 1980's computer... Here is what I've been working on for a year or so on my computer, and more recently in real life. Overall this 101 studs long beast in real life is quite light, although it's not to easy to hold while taking a photo... I had to have another person help me with this picture as the 14 top and bottom stands that keep it level on the table don't make very good holding points for flight! The eight yellow triangular things are movable solar panels, while the cockpit seats two Classic Space mini-figures. The large super-laser emitter on the front is a Death Star-like cannon, used only in times of last resort against unfathomable enemies to the normally peaceful Classic Space fleet. (this would mean potential Blacktron, Robotron or Spyruis incursions, if it hadn't been sent into a Black Hole and time traveled back 200,000 years within minutes of first coming online in 1988.) The ship featured both a dual fusion reactor system and solar panels in eight moving segments as a backup in case of emergency as well as powering the super laser. This would prove vital in keeping trajectory equipment's backup batteries charged and cryogenic crew storage frozen solid for several hundred-thousand years.... you never know how long this station would have lasted otherwise on just fusion alone! The brand-new cockpit should seat two figures, ideally the yellow and white astronaut's from the Benny's Space Squad set. (70841) The solar panel's intense energy from even remotely nearby stars powers the super-laser. (In case you were wondering what those black-and-white pods were on the solar panel wing struts, they are small maneuvering rockets.) The rear of the ship. I was inspired to create the engine pods on the space station after seeing a older post by Flickr user Karf Oohlu as seen here. The access hatch to the inside of the station is visible at the extreme rear near the two engines. I plan on using the white, yellow, and pink astronauts for the lost classic space crew of Classic Space station Upsilon. Benny was also part of this 1988-vintage crew, but managed to loosen himself from the Blacktron-sabotaged space station before it reached the black hole whereupon it vanished, presumed destroyed, with it's crew (minus Benny, who was badly damaged but ok) assumed dead. NOTES: I would have put this SHIP (which stands for "Serious Huge Investment in Parts", in case you didn't know!) in with my other Classic Space stuff, but I think it's best to keep mini-figure scale base and this major space ship separate, as it's not meant to land on planets' surface's. Anyway, this is my first SHIP, and most likely my last one as well. EDIT: main post edited and pictures revised 9/03/19. Real life pictures added! Comments, questions, suggestions, complaints and such are always welcome.
  2. This Orbital Laser Strike Satellite, belongs to APOPHIS constellation. This military satellite constellation makes use of special secret-satellite-super-weapons to annihilate objective on Earth: bunker, shelters, hangars, vehicles, buildings, aircrafts, ships, cruise missiles, ICBMs. Operate surgical and sensitive operations. This satellite carry a powerful laser system that can identify and neutralize the threat in a few seconds. To accomplish his task the laser hit the target with a train of brief pulses of light. The rapid evaporation and expansion of the surface causes shockwaves that damage and destroy the target. This satellite use a chemically powered gas dynamic laser, with compresion of the gas generated and powered by 4 photovoltaic panel.

    [MOC] Lego Spy Satellite

    Spy satellite from the military and secret constallation APATE. This type of satellite carry two very sensitive and very high resolution photo and video camera, capable to detect the face of a person on the ground on Earth, also their camera can be used in night time thanks to IR sensors installed. The satellite it's powered by two photovoltaic panel and can communicate with Earth with antennas and one parable. To correct and maintain the orbit the satellite use hydrazine trusters.

    [MOC] Space Probe "NOMAD"

    The "NOMAD", ultimate space probe built by Lego Space Agency. It's based from VOYAGERs and PIONEERs probe and design, also this space probe, as others, is equipped with a "golden record", protected inside the probe. The probe communicate with Earth by a large parable, always directed on Earth directions by gyroscopes. Communicate also with antennas. Other antennas and a camera study the external environment, and take pictures of our solar system. The probe is powered by a RTG (Radioisotope thermoelectric generator), and hydrazine trusters can be used to correct the orbit and position. Hope alien can understand our ultimate message.

  5. Telecommunications satellite of ASTeCS constellation (Advanced Satellite Teleccomunications Civil System). Every satellite has 5 parables and antennas, to communicate with other satellites and with Earth, hydrazine trusters to correct and maintain orbit in space, and one photovoltaic panel to power satellite systems. The constellation mainly support internet and TV communications all around the world.

    [WIP LDD MOC] Imperial Endor Bunker

    Hello, everyone! Today I give you a work in progress model that i am compiling in LDD. Based on the Imperial Bunker on Endor, which is key in keeping the Death Star II's shields up, this set has around 650 pieces total as it currently is. It also includes the satellite as seen in the movie. Features include collapsing walls, opening doors, rotating seats, and rotating turrets. No minifigures are included right now, but I expect to add more when the final model is completed. I'd love to hear your thoughts, comments, criticisms, etc. The pictures I use are created via Bluerender, a fast, free, simple rendering program.

    [MOC] Satellite and Infrared

    Hello to everyone, today I post my Telecommunications Satellite and Radio Space Telescope. For the Telecommunications Satellite I used parts from 6458 set and Discovery sets line (the photovoltaic panels). Above view illustrated the main parabola antenna and jointed photovoltaic panels: The rear with other antennas: The bottom with the hydrazine thrusters: This is the Radio Space Telescope, with radio sensor, parabola antenna, jointed photovoltaic panels, and on the bottom hydrazine thrusters. I used parts from 6458 set and Discovery sets line.

    [MOC] Space Probe "Explorer"

    Today I post my Space Probe "Explorer", the design is inspired by Space Probe "Voyager 2". I tried to recreat it with the best possible realism. A detail of the Space Probe: the planetary radio astronomy and plasma wave antenna and the RTG on the right. In the middle the "Platinum Record", a hydrazine thrusters and the bus housing electronics. On the left sensors antenna and the low-field magnetometer. At the top, the telocommunications parabola; at the bottom other hydrazine thrusters. Detail of the other side of the Space Probe: high-field magnetometer, a second hydrazine thrusters and the '90 Lego Space Program symbol in the middle. Seen from above
