Re: "Planet of the Titans" Revisited

I dunno - I remember being shown this and another study model for the same vessel in the TNG art department over the summer of 1990 and being told that they were going, along with a bunch of kitbashes there, to be photographed for Part II of BOBW.

I never actually noticed what ships were in those shots, though, although I know that identifying them has become a bit of a fannish cottage industry.

Those kitbashes were cool - it was the first time I saw art markers and the like repainted and used as "warp engines." They had commercial model kits of the Enterprise D in two scales and were doing this trick of designing them to forced perspective by putting really big windows on the larger scale saucers in some cases and lots of little windows on the smaller scale variety.
