This project is a tribute to British science fiction artist Chris Foss. The ship is based on one of my favorite Chris Foss starship designs:
The space station design that accompanies the Laniakea Class Type 4 Galactic Explorer was first created using the program TrueSpace during my earlier years as a 3D-CGI artist. It has been used for various projects and I hope this is its final home.
While this large starship and space station are not an official part of any of my major science fiction universes, they could easily exist alongside Interstellar Mothership “Explorer of Eternity” or even be a far future era of the Interstellar Exploration Corps / Galactic Exploration Corps universe.
