Before long, science and exploration teams are transmitting through the alien machine and arriving on the gateway rock. No one is quite sure where they are going, but it appears to be outside our physical universe. Controls on the gateway rock transmit the spacemen on to other rocks where they find alien machines, which seem oddly familiar yet function in completely different ways to Federation technology. No trace is ever found of the civilisation that built the Universe of the Floating Rocks, as it comes to be known.
We continue our brief voyage in the Thomas Öchsner's imagination...
Gateway Rock: After the transportation via the Secret Transmitter, the Spacemen enter the Universe of the Floating Rocks. The Gateway Rock coordinates the transportation between the different rocks of this strange alien environment.
Large Transmitter Rock: This rock is the communication centre between the Universe of the floating Rocks and the Secret Transmitter built from the alien instructions.
Background/Building technique: Upside down building technique. Rocks in CS colour scheme. Every Rock has his own transportation gate and a computer terminal.
Inspiration: The main inspiration for me was for years after I have seen the fantastic music video “Feel Good, Inc” by the Gorillaz. There you can see a windmill on top of a floating rock. Later I have seen some great Lego models of floating rocks at some Lego Flickr groups.
So, I thought I can combine the floating rock fantasy theme with science fiction and the idea of the floating rocks for Classic Space and the spacemen were born.
