Some visualisation would be nice indeed! While the STS itself has been rendered, all the other wonderful designs are left unseen. The space stations, the Uragan system, Sierra, Hermes, and lastly the LTVs would make for some amazing renders, especially when combined into their various launch architectures.I look forward to seeing any images of the LTVs that get produced! I'm having a little trouble visualizing the stabilizing flare.
As for the updates themselves, they are excellent, and I've been reading them right at the time they're posted, which makes for a good weekly routine. The creativity and the intelligence that went into crafting the various spacecrafts and their operational trajectories is simply amazing. My only point of criticism would be that there's not enough of it, since I could easily see Eyes Turned Skyward-levels of detail coming out of the broad premise of a well-done STS. But somehow the current structure is both detailed and concise, so I have nothing really to complain about. Well, okay, maybe one more thing, which is that the politics of the world follow OTL very closely, since the various presidential elections and the fall of the soviet union are two important factors in determining spaceflight's history. Surely messing around with these a little could make for a more interesting history. Then again, these divergences get out of hand quickly, especially when they're not the focus of the story.
Eager to see where it goes from here. My guess is that the TL cuts off in 2011, when OTL's STS ended, but this leaves plenty of room to see what happens after the upcoming lunar return. Keep up the good work!
