Kaar Kermargh General Transport
The Kaar Kermargh were the third sentient race encountered by the Gaians. After the humans were deposited on Gaia, they had 450 years to grow and develop from a small settlement into a civilization with the infrastructure for space travel and exploration. During those centuries, the Gaians learned to communicate, then understand, and finally form a strong alliance with the Avaatu, a sub-terranean sentient race that shared the planet with the Gaians. Also, another sentient race callled the Klem'ta, occupied the plains of a small southern continent on Gaia. Neither of these races were hostile, and neither of these races had much interest in space travel. This greatly affected their development and social evolution away from being a space faring culture. Fifty standard years ago, the Humans of Gaia began to explore nearby star systems. They had always known that there were other worlds occupied by humans, and that somewhere out there were the Neireen. Where they were, the Gaians did not know. Twenty years into their space exploration program, the Gaians came to a habitable world covered in lush forests, and verdant grasslands. While studying this world Gaian scientists discovered a bi-pedal sentient, and apparently primitive race. These rather large, and covered in body hair (no clothing), mammalian beings were gentle despite their appearance. At first, the Gaian scientists dubbed the aliens, Sasquatchi, after an old Earth myth as their appearance was strikingly similar. After years of xeno-anthropologists working with the Sasquatchi, now known to be called the Kaar Kermargh, it was discovered that these aliens were anything but primitve. The Kaar Kermargh had not only space faring capability, but also possessed Arc Drive technology to travel to distant stars. They simply preferred living a very aggressive agrarian lifestyle. They had a popular adage amongst their people: "Where can space travel take you, except away from home, and what can a machine do that you would not do better?" The Kaar Kermargh used space travel and industry when it suited them, and had centered all of their industry and technology into one city, the only city on the planet. It was discovered that the Kaar Kermargh were a very ancient race, predating not only human civilization, but also predating Atlantean civilization. In fact, it was later discovered that their civilization was older than the Colonizer civilization -- the Colonizers are the oldest civilization so far known to xeno-archeaologists. The life span of an individual can be up to 300 human years. Not much more is known about the Kaar Kermargh, as they are a people who value their privacy, and forbid human scientists from taking genetic samples, as it is against their religious beliefs. In fact, they take great care to observe those beliefs pertaining to the remains of their dead. It is suspected by Gaian scientists that the first impression of a connection between the Kaar Kermargh and Earth's Sasquatch may hold some truth to it. After further study, they seem to have many, many similarities with the old Earth myth. Perhaps one of their space ships crashed on Earth, long ago, and the survivors, who come from a forest planet, took to living in the wilderness of Earth far away from the civilization that they so dislike. Speculation aside, Gaian scientists have not been able to learn much, but diplomacy with the Kaar Kermargh has been warm and trade has been established.
About this creation





The great challenge with this MOC was in using three different browns, and the new dark stone grey, or bley as it is commonly called. I wanted natural earth tone colors for this MOC, and I wanted it to appear simple. The "stone grey" of course could represent a stone color, and the three different browns could be "woodish" colors. They are not wood, just the same color to look like wood. But how do I use three brown colors without seeming like I just threw them in like some 3-year-old?


Simple, but effective engines.


I realized that if the brown colors were consistent in their use, and only used for certain parts, and I had one dominating brown over the other two, and I used symmetry with the various browns, then they just might look like there was intention to mix three brown colors together in one MOC. I hope it works.


yah, that's right, I'm calling wookies --> sasquatch. Watcha gonna do, bad boy bad boy, watcha gonna do when they come for you?


This MOC was built in just a few hours late one night when I could not sleep. It is not intended to be anything more than just a basic transport ship with a crew of 2-4. And, yes, there is a ton of SNOT work done with this MOC... my allergies were acting up.

This ship is absolutely inspired. What a shape! And the color combo is great. hehe, just reading your history and I have to say oops. -----My own stuff has been being released under G.A.I.A, and what should I discover, the same name pops up in your back story! Incredible build...

What a piece of work! This "reverse" technique is amazing, and brown is a highly unusual color in Space MOCs :)

Simple but nice design. It is a good baseline ship for these Kaar Kermargh you have created. I look forward to seeing more.

Great design. Love the use of the curved slope elements. I also like the way you've incorporated the keel parts (or whatever they're called...from Jabba's Sail Barge...).

Quoting Ben H. There's a lot of interesting parts usage here, especially with the engine and the nose. The overall shape is excellent as well. Great job.
Thank you. As you can tell, the engine uses castle parts. I love using castle parts in my space ships. It started out as a challenge to myself a year ago to do that, and now I do it with EVERY MOC!. As for design, I wanted simple, and yet not just tires thrown on the backside. So, those castle pieces added an interesting and simple dynamic; and the baskets and barrels made for great auxiliary engines. Thanks again.

Quoting Steef de Prouw There's something very recognisable and appealing to the shape of this ship. I love it.
If you have a clue as to what might have inspired my sleep adled brain for the shape of this, let me know. I almost feel like I had seen this before somewhere...

Quoting affliction . A few hours. It would take me a week or two to design and build something like this. Edit: And if you want to solve a problem for me, you can tell me what you did to flip the studs upside-down on the nose.
Thanks for the compliment. As to that problem... Take two technic bricks, any length, turn one upside down, connect them together with technic pins. Voila!! Then only attach one technic brick (the upside down one) to whatever you want to have upside down, and only attach the right side up technic brick to whatever you want right side up. You can do this as many times as you need to have different sections of your MOC up, down, up, down, turn both on their side and you have right, left. Does that make sense?

Quoting Darth Demise Haha someone destroyed their MTT if I am not mistaken.
Yes, Mr. Smarty Pants. I was not going to buy an MTT because I already had a bazillion droids. But Wal-Mart tempted me with their deep discount sale at $60!!! So I bought it for parts, and now here we go...

Great ship! Nice choice of colour and interesting building solutions. I like the overall shape, it's kind of boxy but yet sleek... Hope you get more sleepless nights, this one rocks!
