    That has been a common problem since the "upgrade" to new forum software...totally bogus if you ask me. As to your thingy, what's it from? I'm not familiar with it. It looks like kettle drums on the left and watermelons on the right with some sort of living quarters in the middle and they have to walk tightropes to get to either side. The Flying Karamazov Brothers in space, an opera in three parts. Eh, shrug, don't mind me I'm still suffering from heat exhaustion so my brain isn't working all that well.

    Ok, since more than one person have mentioned not being familiar with the bases for my entry here is the Silent Running move trailer. The ships are seen right at the beginning of the trailer and a few places throughout. I guess I show my age in this one 1970's Sci-fi

    And for the record there is deck plans anywhere for these ships. It was filmed on a decommissioned navy vessel or something so I have just tried to include the areas they show on the film as well as whatever else I can think of.

    PS. I probably should have had this link at the beginning of my entry.


    EDIT: Now that I can read your post Ascension I have to say I got a good chuckle. I'm not done yet with the "kettle drums" and the "watermelons" are supposed to be self contained bio-domes with the last forests and plant-life of Earth.

    Ok, deadline is killing me. I cranked on this all afternoon and late into the night. My mouse hand is cramped up now :O

    If you see anything that I should change please let me know and if I have time tomorrow I will see what I can do.

    Just a few minor detail updates. I tried to add some depth but I've gotta get out to work...be back if I survive it after 3.5 hours sleep

    You've got some lovely melons, Jax Kidding. Just wanted to say that for some reason...must be the brain damage.

    Last one before votes (I hope at least I got it in there).

    Just a few minor changes, a title and legend.
