Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Honestly I would prefer something akin to the effect used in TMP. The blue lights turn on when the ship is jumping to warp.

Or not, they'll probably do something different.

I'm more interested in what the warp effect might be. Again I'm hoping for something similar to TMP as I have always thought that warp effect was best.

The port nacelle should be blue, and the starboard nacelle should be hot pink.

And the blue nacelle should be played by William Shatner.

Anyone ready with the photoshop?

Let's do some pre-vis.


Abrams!

Should the "re-imagined" NCC-1701 have blue warp nacells as the Enterprise NX-01 and C through E have? I'd personally like to see it.
Well, we all know that warp drive is generated through the use of massive quantities of blue LEDs, right? Except you also need lots of RED leds in the front. "Technology" = "bright primary color lighting."

That is a sweet ride! Now, if we can just add the sweeping red scanner to the front of the primary hull, and get William Daniels to do the voice of the ship's computer, then we'll have something!

Maybe they'll have some completely different way of portraying warp drive.
Vectoring nacelles? With wings?
And here we have it - the post I was waiting for.

Vectoring nacelles with wings is soooo 2007.

NOW we're getting somewhere. Can we put Worf's face where the deflector dish should be? You know, to scare away villains?

I think you meant portly nacelle.

And yes, can we get that?

I'm concerned about the brightness of the nacelle caps.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Look at it again. The portly nacelle doubles as a Shatner Pez dispenser.

He shoots Pez out of his mouth at hostile incoming.

Can we add that?

(Or maybe Smarties, instead, since the nacelles are round.)

You know, before I even read this post I was thinking that exact same thing.

Now I'm really scared.

Before I know it, I'll be in a bathtub with Brannon Braga.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Ok, Worf added as well as the Knight Rider L.E.D. light at the front. I think we are getting close now. I think this is what we are going to get in the new movie. The deflector dish is in front of Worf's face, but I didn't want to run without the deflector. I'm not sure whether it would be safe.

Can Worf's face deflect asteriods and space debris?


I'm thinking of submitting it to the Trek Art Forum
