I think there haven't been many responses to these new ships being posted because we're all frankly speechless. Absolutely amazing work! Let's see a test animation!

Thanks Mark! I know, Tobias is a freaking genius. We are so lucky to have him on board.

Starfleet Command from "Origins" by resident genius Pony Horton. Pony will be doing effects shots for "Axanar" as well.

Might suggest posting these over in the art section. Guaranteed that you will get responses and constructive criticism there.

FWIW, this is some great work here.

Thanks, but not looking for constructive criticism really! We have a good group of people working on these and we know what we want. I post them to create excitement and interest.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

They're nice designs, but other than your hero ship they're all pretty much permutations of Tobias's Kelvin. Are there any plans to individualize them a bit? Don't get me wrong, they look great and the Kelvin is a great jumping off point. Tobias Richter doesn't mess around when it comes to modeling, but they're a bit same-ish. I know you're explicitly not looking for feedback on these, but are you considering varying the textures a bit? Even something trivial like different colored hull plating might add some variety.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Well, they are a fleet. Fleets look the same often. You look at the US Navy and they are all painted the same way.

We WANT them to look similar and look like they all came from the same ship yards. This is early in the Federation, before ships were being built all over the place. They were built by Earth, on Earth shipyards, probably before Utopia Planetia even. So they were likely to look similar. Parts are meant to be interchangeable.

But appreciate your feedback!

I agree. The Hero ship needs to be distinct; everyone else is very pretty set dressing, not meant to distract attention from said hero. If deliberate, it's a very good choice.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Tobias changed the lettering on the saucers to be TOS style and not JJ style.



JJ LETTERING

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

And updated bridge. A few people requested this, as the JJ-like bridge was not a popular feature. When Sean Tourangeau asked me last night, I sent the request to Tobias who agreed and got it done!




So your comments are helpful and sometimes listened to! :-)

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Thanks guys, now the ships feel more in the Prime Universe. the Bridges were bugging me. It works for the JJverse but for the Prime these feel so much better. BTW Tobias great work on all the designs.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

So the phaser mounts on these beauties seem to be analogous to the Kelvin, with TMP-style twin mounts supported by CIWS-type turrets under the square hatches of the saucer. Has any thought been given to the type of fire we'll be seeing in combat? Some linkage between what the Kelvin showed and the blue beams we'll ultimately see on the TOS Enterprise? Has tobais built these models with the turrets underneath as well? That'd be some fantastic detail on the final product!
