Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

So, this evening, I got to thinking: we have some art of the team transports (the Mark 1 and 2 OmegaJets), but we have yet to have any indication of what the satellite itself looks like.

I wanted to put it out there for discussion, and to see if anybody might be willing to have a go at it. I was going to get in touch with somebody, but decided that I'd rather let the community itself see what we can come up with before I just sort of unilaterally had someone design and draw it.

So... thoughts? When you think of it at this moment, what do you see?

For myself, I kind of once again see an Omega incorporated into the design somehow. The satellite itself isn't bulky per se (like the pre-Crisis JLA HQ or DS9), but longer akin to the Watchtower.

Ideas from everyone else?

EDIT: Also, a name for it. "Omega Guardians Satellite" is too klunky. Something cool and flowing like "Watchtower", "Panopticon", or "Avalon" (a satellite HQ belonging to a friend's group) have nice flows to them.

A good name, especially since it's the Hall of Heroes in Norse myth. But I'm afraid it's kind of got the same overtones as setting up our guys on a base called Olympus. I was hoping for something simpler, but Valhalla is certainly something to keep in mind.

Rough basic shape for my idea, going to refine further but I was trying to go with what you mentioned about incorporating an Omega symbol into it ursa! There would be solar collector panelsall long the 'middle base' of the symbol, hence the left side drawing.
Finally a sign of artist block going away. X_X

I think you're on the right track. Maybe watch the dip in the top arch of the omega shape though. We don't want it looking like an orbital version of a popular chain fast food joint. icon-arcee.gif

Well if we go for Omen the AI, I think we need to acronymize it.

Also, I submit this design for it:



As for Smokey's satellite design... it's on the right track, but it needs some tweaking. Right now the side view looks like the McDonald's Arch.

Agreed. But since it's TriBlurr's idea, final say of course belongs to him. I submit...

Omnipresent
Electronic
Neuropresence

Observational
Metatasking
Electronic
Neuropresence

Omnipresent
Multitasking
Electronic
Neuropresence

...as suggestions.
