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

I'm with Blip regarding Bluefin and Sineus being pretty rad. Of the other two, I prefer the "John" over the "Oscar." I love the idea of a pair of warp engines in one integrated nacelle. That's a pretty cool idea.

Oscat would have a nice side view. The two nacelles are between the saucer and the sec hull closer to the center of gravity. John has a great saucer.

Well the Bluefin and Sineus are more developed because I'm going to build those out and texture them. The Oscar and John models are just going to be "concept" work for a development poster for the Edward Teller. Although, I do like that double warp engine on the John so I might try an experimental set up on a Constitution.

And speaking of the Edward Teller, got some more texture work done. Still trying to keep it subtle and yet have something there to break up the expanse of the primary hull. I'm going to add in some hatches here and there but I don't plan on any grid lines, at this time... I never really much cared for the view of the ship from the front, but this second pic here doesn't look half bad.

Nice... I'm liking the subtle details that pop when you get up close and personal. It keeps it clean and sleek looking from afar! Damned nice!

I like the positioning of the registry markings on the wings. Reminds me of the space shuttles.

Beautifull, especially that second rendering. Therefore, I suggest you to make the torp launcher integrated into the sec hull´s belly, under the deflector. The way it is now, looks like a kitbash, or like the feds just used this version as a testbed of a future weapon integration.

Well a while back I did actually put the torpedo launchers inside the secondary hull but it just didn't do it for me. I guess I could try and give some curve to the launcher. I do like the look of it sticking out of the bottom though, and without it there, the secondary hull looks like it needs something there...

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

It's kind of styled like an automotive scoop, I think. Implies a bit of power for that slim engineering hull. But I agree that it's a bit prominent. Very Pontiac, if you will.

I believe that some curve can make it to look more... natural. The ship has elegant and smoothed lines, rounded in general. Just the torp is in the square direction, and it breaks the design flow.

LordSarvain, your ship has a real Concorde vibe.

Well put - just like Concorde, this design has a real beauty about it. It's nicely balanced and I like the white hull.

Can't wait to see this rendered in a proper space environment (i.e. Earth orbit).

Hardly. It's a kludge based around McQuarrie's paintings, but not an attempt to model what he painted.

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

In my opinion, this design, and especially your rendition of it, is far more convincing than any other Federation-based ship in Star Trek lore, canon or otherwise. I can totally see this as a real ship some time in the future.
