taste thing).

 I can actually help with mapping coordinates if you want, this I'm quite
good at. There's a lot to you have any specific questions? On a
dude like this who has a lot of flat surfaces, you can get away with alot of
box mapping, or if you want to get real specific (and thus huge) with your
texturing, you can map faces of the larger surfaces individually (by either
detaching the faces or using multi/sub-object mapping). I wrote a tutorial
trying to cover the basics of different types of mapping (yeah, it's a butt
ugly Trek ship, it's just a tut man! ;} ). If you want to have a look, it's
