I’ve been playing around with Blender recently and I decided to model a picture of the Captain’s chair from Star Trek, just to see if I could do it. I couldn’t just stop at the chair though, so I added in a little something extra for the captain. I suspect Kirk was fond of Mochas but kept them hidden from the camera. Everyone needs a quad shot mocha to keep them alert on watch.
Back on Blender. This software is simply amazing. For something that is free, it’s incredibly powerful. You can model, animate, composite, run simulations, and even create games using Blender. Some of the newest features include camera tracking, an ocean simulator, and new improved render engine called cycles. The artwork and videos I’ve seen people produce is just simply amazing.

Hmm… I wonder if they’ll have Starbucks in the 23rd century. I’m going to assume so and add some cup holders next time.
