Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

I might as well say it before anyone else does - while behind the scenes materials (writers' bible, reference books etc) can be useful for divining the creator's intent, it's what actually happens on screen that counts at the end of the day...at least as far as this project goes! I have a similar goal and set of rules to Blssdwlf for my own Enterprise project, but there are any number of directions that could be taken, all equally valid and which may make use of Creator's Intent to a lesser or greater degree.

I strongly recommend checking out Shaw's project, which attempts to recreate the Enterprise as originally envisioned by Matt Jeffries (especially in deck height). Sadly the thread is now closed but there's some great work in there and he has actually calculated the Enterprise as being slightly shorter than 947'

Me, I say make it BIGGER
