You know, the nacelles on the third version look pretty cool. Might be worth reusing on some other design.

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

This MK1 looks very awesome to me the second and third version have a awesome looking Nav Deflector Dish shape and the final version looks very 2300 to 2320 like to me and maybe possibly a test bed design made during the Galaxy Class development

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

Indeed, she does look like a plausible ancestor of the Galaxy class. But I think that she looks distant from maybe 50 years, judging by the lack of phaser strips, which I believe was introduced on the Ambassador class.
I'm loving the delta wing body for an engineering section design. Knowing me, I'll probably end up trying to use a similar design element in a few of my sketches one of these days.

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

I like the MK I Tony. Maybe You could work with SMC and flesh out what a 1976 1977 Titans Enterprise would have looked like on screen. SMC has the saucer as per Ken Adam:
http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=135745

But Ralph's painting has a different saucer. Flatter, rounder at the edge, with the bridge dome farther forward. Many thought this was untrek like, yet the Moonraker station reminded me of Regula I.

This might be where galactica level detail makes up for lack of fluidity. I really want to see those painings brought to life. The only thing to do is to make the long narrow boxy spine taper a bit to form the narrow deflector anti-proton beam thingy to make Ralphs two paintings gel together. The Mk I is actually almost there.

Small update, just a little more texture added to the photon torpedo bay. And some work on the bridge, I'm still deciding on the bridge area though.

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

I remember seeing the old McQuarrie concept back in the 70's vividly, as well as my reaction to it. I didn't like it at all. But, what you've done with his original design is incredible. Your re-working is sleek, stylish, and very Trek. I love how you took a very clunky concept and turned it into a sleek lady. Really very stellar work. I love it!

@Santaman - yep, it's a big one...

@publiusr - I've always wondered what the point of a shuttle carrier would be. I could see a large colony transport having a lot of shuttles but a ship dedicated to carrying a lot of shuttles, unless it also has the space to house all of the people the shuttles are ferrying, I don't see the point. Unless the point of the ship is just to ferry shuttles but even that seems more the job of a cargo ship. I haven't completely settled on what the Teller's role will be yet, but I've decided it's definitely going to be a "one of" and something of a spruce goose among starships.

I love this spin off the concept. I'd say this is simply fantastic. And the secondary hull reminds me of something I remember wanting to use as a secondary hull since I was a kid: the little turn signal indicator housing on the front top quarter panel of a cadillac (they were on them for years). I'll have to show you a picture when I get to work, but your ship really makes me happy because of this silly little thing...

I'm sure that the ample hanger space must have come in handy for carrying fighters or supplies and vehicles for defensive military encampments during the Cardassian War, though.
