Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

the NX-01refit looks great, canon or not its a brilliant looking ship, i would be interested in seeing the specs for it and the internal graphic info, how much things changed in it and such.

Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

Perhaps there is an intention to use the refit design in an upcoming movie? A Yesterday's Enterprise sort of thing, only with Bakula and crew, could be pretty freakin' SWEET. (By that, I mean a crossover plot, not necessarily the specifics like Narendra III and such.)

That's what I'm thinking - some kind of advance marketing effort to see how popular something like that would be.

Though I do think the "refit" is hideous looking.
I understand what they tried to do, but yeah: the ship is terrible.

Oh, please. PLEASE put Bakula's puny little ship face-to-face with NuKirk's Abramsprise. You thought the latter looked small next to the Vengeance...

Shit, they could probably fit the NX-01 in the Abramsprise shuttle bay by now - ILM's scaled it up so much!

Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

The NX-01 refit, even considering the fact that she wasn´t seen in any movie, is generally accepted as canon.
By other side, I know (as a lot of you) that Doug is in campain to have a web series, beggining from where Enterprise finished. The series will feature the NX-01 refit as the main ship.
A friend of mine is tweaking the mesh provided by Doug himself, that (maybe) will used in the show.

That isn't hoe canon works. CBS/Paramount only count what happens on-screen, live-action.

Will never happen.

Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

Interesting. It almost sounds like Doug might be trying to go down the same path with Enterprise that Richard Hatch did with TOS Battlestar Galactica when he funded his "The Second Coming" trailer for a pitch to Universal. Hopefully, if Doug puts something together, it won't lead him to near-financial ruin like it almost did for Richard.

If movies like Howard the Duck or Battlefield Earth can get made, then quite literally anything is possible in Hollywoodland.

Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

It's possible, of course, but extremely improbable. Paramount will obviously stick to the Bad Robot films for at least another movie (if not more) and CBS has shown no interest in returning Star Trek to television (and if they did, why would they re-launch the least successful installment of the franchise?).

A web series is a bit of a wild card, granted, but I still doubt this will ever happen.

Also, the design is ugly. Doug Drexler is a talented artist, but this one just doesn't do it for me.

Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

I don't think the refit makes much sense, given how we know the NX-01 to be internally arranged. Doesn't it also pretty much eliminate use of the drop bay?

Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

I presume with a secondary hull in place, there would be a hangar deck as per the TOS E.

Seems like it would've been cheaper to build a new ship rather than completely rearrange the innards of the NX-01.

Heh...tell that to the engineers that completely rearranged the innards of the TOS Enterprise in TMP. McCoy was right...
