    "You can't be afraid of the wind."

    Tempest is one of the smaller members of the cyber fleet, but one would never know it to meet him. It's not that he is a braggart or egotistical. He simply has a quiet confidence that whatever situation he sails into, he will find a way through it. He is most at home when navigating an ion storm, bouncing calmly off the eddies. Still, he has at least one superstition: His alt-mode of a Miranda-class starship has a reputation of being known as the "red shirt" of the fleet, which might be why he chose a bot-mode color scheme dominated by blue.

    Tempest is made from a generations Cosmos. The nacelles and sensor pod roll bar are made from styrene. This was a pretty straightforward build. My least favorite part of this definitely goes back to my paint job, particularly the red curves. Otherwise, I really like this little guy. Thanks for looking!

    S'funny, I never thought of the Miranda Class Starship as the red-shirt of the fleet. Haha
