Here is a another wallpaper I created for the Star Trek Axanar production I am apart of. This production goes before the cameras later this year. Please keep an eye here for what ever updates I can give as the production moves forward.

I'm still not sure how much I like the Ares' design, but that picture is beautiful.

I liked the pic enough to put it into my desktop rotation - it's even the one up right now.

The Pre-TOS design era is a tough one to design. There are many different designs that are leading up to the Enterprise not everyone is going to like every design. With the Ares I tried to meet every thing that Alec wanted and we went back and forth refining the design until we were ready for Tobias to do his magic. He even refined it even more and I think you will like what she looks like in action against the Klingons when the time comes.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

I'm not sure exactly what it is, but the design looks sleeker and more advanced to my eyes than the TOS design era ships. It might be as simple a thing as the lack of vertical separation between design elements.

It's not a bad design at all, it's just taking me a bit to reconcile it with my preconceived notions of what a Pre-TOS ship should look like.

I'm just happy that it's not another Constitution kitbash like everyone else's TOS-era designs.

That is what I wanted to avoid when I designer her. Yes it still has a saucer and yes it still has Nacelles but what put it all together was the unique secondary hull.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Actually, the basic shape was my idea and Sean fleshed it out. I was always a fan of the USS Centaur from DS9 and wanted a ship with that basic look with the addition of an attached secondary hull. I thought the big distinction of the Ares would be this, that it did NOT look like the Enterprise, but you could draw a line from one to the other.




The other big influence was this:



Then we just had to make both ships fit into a pre-TOS timeline. You might disagree about what you think a pre-TOS ship should look like, but it is a tough process, since we have no reference.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Personally, I'm just really glad you're doing it. I remember seeing images somewhere of some very bulbous ships, but I can't find them now.

As far as I know, the Botany Bay is the only true Pre-TOS design ever shown on screen, and it's hard to extrapolate from that.

Well, we have also seen the Daedalus Class via Captain Sisko's model of the USS Horizon.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

We start shooting September 22nd at the Phase II Sets in New York. We will shoot all the ship based scenes, which amounts to just over half the script.

We then will shoot 4 location shoots and 3 sound stage shoots in L.A. over the following 6 months.

Sounds great!
Hope you'll manage to camouflage the sets and the atmosphere enough to make them seem like an older type of ship.
