A Little Something: Enterprise G (with input from Gabe Koerner)

Here's a little something I put together during a bout of OCD.

When I got her almost all done... the original warp nacelles looked all wrong and I said I want to change them. Gabe sketched a quick shape for the nacelles - and it was PERFECT, of course.

Interesting. Those nacelles remind me of the ones from Probert's Enterprise F.

Love it. Nacelles remind of Narsil's Interceptor class from way back, or a few fan designs from the Bridge Commander modding community (not sure of the exact modders right now). And those impulse engine housings look awesome!

Narsil did the concept drwaings, and Mavek fleshed the ship in lightwave. Later, I converted her to 3ds max and pepperman ported it to bridge commander.
Yes the naceles are similar, but the interceptor has longer naceles. Probert´s Enterprise F has more similarity.

I would love to see some more of this, very interesting concept.

Are those solarpanels on the saucer?

Nope. Them's windows. Hundreds and hundreds of windows packed together in a honeycomb grid. I liked the idea of the tops decks of the saucer having huge expanses of window area when you look up and into the majestic... majesty of the galaxy.

Sadly, Klingons are peeping Toms, so this might not work well over private living quarters.

User-variable window-tinting technology as the solution!

Yep.

I'm still not satisfied with them, but I haven't been able to come up with something better - yet. But that's the location where they will stay.

Reminds me of the solar road treatment.

Nice to see something besides the aztek--that wouldn't show at that scale anyway.

One of the best saucers ever!

Re: A Little Something: Enterprise G (with input from Gabe Koerner)

Two details that popped out to me are the stars over the impulse engines and the bridge complex. The D had a little extension off the central part of the bridge but this has several. It conveys a sense of activity.

Haven't decided yet.

I do know she's considerably smaller than I had originally planned. I'm saving "big" for my next project: essentially a mobile star base.

I threw this together to show roughly where I'm at with her size. I see her as a direct descendant of the "D" lineage; maybe an alternative universe where the Borg weren't a threat and/or the "D" had a long service life, and its successors followed its design philosophy instead of the more "badass" John Eaves' "E".

(Anyone know who did that "D" so I can give credit?)
