Private Freighter/Cargo ship concept WIP by Jon-Michael-May
Private Freighter/Cargo ship concept WIP
Here's something I'm working on for a friend of mine. He's a Star Wars & Firefly fan, so I'm thinking of something that would fit in with Serenity and the Falcon.
Random Gun Concept WIP by Jon-Michael-May
Random Gun Concept WIP
Just a random gun with a silencer, because a rifle based on the M249 light machine gun definitely needs a silencer. ;)
Argus Station WIP by Jon-Michael-May
Argus Station WIP
So here's a new thing I'm working on....and yes, I'm aware that it has a lot in common with babylon 5. I'm using B5 as a starting point and plan to work on making it more unique while keeping the long tube habitat idea.

This is a New Haven design, the idea being that a lot of people didn't want anything to do with the war and took up residence in one of these stations, of which there are many. Since they're neutral in the war, attacking one is considered a war crime and everyone tends to leave them alone, which makes them a fairly common sight in high orbit of most inner planets, moons, and large asteroids.

I'm not sure if the story will ever get to fully show one of these, but I hope it will because I have some interesting ideas about how societies would develop on different stations given who lives there and that they're cut off from the rest of society. If they don't show up in the main story, then they might appear at some point in a stand alone piece at some point.

ETA: 1/10/16
Fleshing it out some of the main structures. Pulled the storage tanks, Solar panels, shuttles, and docking collar module off the Essex. I nixed the larger docking ring for a variety of reasons.

And to give you an idea of just how big the station is, that's a silouette of the Essex class, that comes in at just under 680 meters.

Rail Gun Sniper wip
A UN anti-Material Rifle, though it's also used as a sniper rifle against Guardsmen/Jumper body armor.
Still needs work.

Facebook: (I'll be changing the Method of Life page, to a general Author Fanpage soon, so that it's not just about the one book, but about everything I'm working on.)

I've published my first novel, Method of Life. Buy it, read it, review it:

The Synopsis:
In The Future:
There was no great war of nations, no thundering voice from the sky unleashing a rapture of judgment on the kneeling masses, and no great extinction level event of cataclysmic proportions. The Fall of Man came incrementally over half a century, in the form of economic and social decay, spiraling civilization into collapse without so much as a whimper.

At least that's the story people believed.

Many had tried throughout human history to control the world. Dictators had conquered half the globe and free men had seen their efforts squandered by the selfish masses. Never had either side done as much to unite humanity in common cause, as Jacob Morrison. Where they had failed, he succeeded, binding humanity in a single effort to halt his reign of destruction across the world.

Together, they repaid his treason with blindfolded gunfire. And after a time, all that remained of his legacy was a son that had never known his father and the broken world left to rebuild.

The Method of Life:
Caleb Johansen has spent his life hidden away from those who might wish to see him answer for his fathers crimes against the world. In an effort to to blame anyone for their poor lot in life, the past has finally caught up with him in the town of Rosa. A resettlement camp abandoned by the government and turned self sufficient community, Rosa is an island amid the wasteland that stretches out between the privately owned Districts, where a lucky few live lives of luxury.

As his ailing guardian prepares him for the next step in his life, Caleb must entrust his future to soldiers of fortune hired to ensure his protection. Harmon McCullough is such a man, though not without a conscience and the understanding of the larger stakes in play and the risks involved for the band of brothers standing with him and friends on the wrong side of his mission.

Creasy is one such friend, and must contend with the one obstacle Harmon presents, a currency not in great supply. Dispatched from the District New Haven to take Caleb into custody by any means necessary, Harmon and Creasy will meet for the last time in Rosa, both with the realization that nothing can stand in the way of completing their missions.

Caught in the middle of their everyday lives, Alaster and Veda Nelthrope must contend with being swept into the whirlwind of danger sweeping through Rosa. With problems of their own, their lives may never be the same as the interaction with events unfolding around them force resolutions from aspects of their lives they both had been afraid to face.

One night will change their lives forever and by the time the sun rises, their worlds will never be the same.
Should the Essex Class have a spinning core. I know a spinning core isn't enough to provide gravity for the entire ship and likely what I'm thinking of would be like rotating modules that are specialized mission modules.
Essex Class WIP 999 by Jon-Michael-May

Maybe have multiple parts spinning at different speeds. The solar panel module for sure. The ring that is between weapons module and shuttle docks. Here's the updated core that I haven't combined with the rest of the ship yet.
Essex Class Weapons Module WIP 1 by Jon-Michael-May
I'm striving for plausible realism so some very small liberties can be taken, but for the most part I want things to be realistic.
