Maybe becoming more like this?

This design comes from an old favourite haunt of mine, EnterpriseTCW.

Sadly no more.

Really, when I first saw the NX-01 I didn't see the Akira. I saw the Constitution class with the secondary hull shaved off and the two nacelles suspended in the same place. I thought it looked neat. I still don't understand the furor, uproar and bitterness that fans still have for that design, even ten years after the fact.

You know I really like that. It could've been a TNG era ship.

I know, I just thought this one, with the big boat on the bottom would have all sorts of neat stuff, like a bunch of shuttle craft or torpedo bays, etc. It reminded me of an aircraft carrier in space.

I always felt the Miranda class should have been a science vessel moreso.

I dig the Eaves secondary hull refit design...this makes me wish that Enterprise was never canceled, and I guess Starfleet would eventually refit all of it's NX class starships at some point.

The only way I could ever believe a refit of that scale is possible is if they eluded to the NX being upgraded like this. As if it was designed for this upgrade and the secondary hull just slid on. But it makes you wonder why they would do it, when they only have 2 possibly 3 NX ships.

There's too much going on with those, it should be smoother and less 'sleek' looking. I think the NX-01 refit will need to lose a lot of surface detail on the hull.

It does at that. Maybe I'm imagining it, but it has a sort of post Nemesis feel... beyond dropping an NX saucer and nacelles into place.

The downswept tailfins (while being a sort of 50's throwback) are design cul-de-sac aren't they? They don't turn up on future starships that I've seen.

I don't really do that kind of artwork myself. Pencil sketches are pretty much my limit. But noticed that among some test work done for that Half-Life gaming mod. Something else I'm not heavily into, but I appreciate the hours of work which goes into the animation and starship modelling.

This was done by somebody for Bridge Commander:

Maybe the dinky secondary hull dedicated to the deflector and engineering section (relocating the warp reactor maybe?) is the kind of look Doug and Pierre are going for.

This design is wicked cool, and a has very believable "upgrade" look... I can easily see this being a link in evolution between the NX-01 and the 1701.

The middle of that large hall, in your avatar, reminds me of a ship bridge, for some reason.
One of the most striking comments ever made about the Original Series was how viewers back in the '60s, saw the crew on that bridge and its representation of a united humankind. I think it was George Takei who once said that.

What better structure for a ceremony in which different kinds of aliens come together and commit to founding the Federation?

But yeah, it does look like a ramp leading to a reused bridge module modified for the occasion. Maybe there's more that story or just pure coincidence.

The avatar comes from Zero Hour but that location reappears in These are the Voyages... one of few things I liked about the finale. Of course, Archer's big moment was abruptly cut off by somebody saying "End Program"...

It probably wouldn't have been as good as that speech from Terra Prime anyway, I guess.
When I saw the preview trailer for that episode, I first thought it was the top of a ship for a bit.

Yesh...another strike against TATV.....we never get to hear Archer's speech. Berman and Bragga, go masturbate with a cheesegrater for awhile, mmmmkay?

There is pic of a CGI mock up done by Drexler I think that was contained with a toy model of the NX ship. There was 3 variations. One like Eaves drawing, another like a ring shaped ship with nacelles.

That would be cool, thanks.
