Dac's NX-01(.5) & more!

Hey guys,

Ive been re watching Enterprise a lot lately, and that got apprecieating the NX-01 more than I used to. So much more infact, that I decided to make my own

I've been working on it on and off for about 2 weeks now and i'd like to think im nearing the end (although I rarely ever "finish" a mesh).

Anyhoo, enough of me rambling on, I'd like to hear what you guys think of it.





Oh, and i've added a lil more






Enjoy!

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Here they are, I just organized my photobucket is all.

I would put them back in the posts they belong in, but I can't seem to find the edit button :S

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

It's so pretty! Very nice.

(Well ok. The original is pretty. I am still not sold on that secondary hull. I think my girl was just fine the way she was. I feel like I know her intimately now and that addition complicates things for me aesthetically. Sort of like that third nacelle on the D in "All Good Things". But the mesh for it is nice though!)

And I hate to ask this since you said you were done with her but... are you going to texture it?

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

I said I was nearing the end, not quite there yet

The catamarans need some details underneath, along with the bottom of the saucer and the nacelles. Once Ive seen to them, i can call the "original" NX done. As for the secondary hull, I need to find some higher resolution images of it (ive only got the centerfold shot from trekmovie.com) so i can add some more detail to that, then that will be done.

I do intend to texture it, its just I find it a very annoying process and its something im not all that good at...theres a rough aztec on it atm that I nicked from a 1701 Refit mesh ive made, but thats covering most of the hull at the moment so I need to do something more era specific.

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

I like this except for one part. Why do the impulse engines have to extend all the way back through the pylon for the warp nacelle? I don't get it, they can be just at the end of the saucer and still do their job.

I have no idea as to the "in universe" explanation, but as for the real life one, I understand that thats where the impulse engines were on the Akira class, so thats where they were on the NX-01 as dictated by the producers.

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

To be sure, the big blue-glowing things at the ends of the booms were never called "impulse engines" by our heroes. The smaller glowing things on the saucer aft rim were.

From "Minefield", as regards the mine clamped right next to one of the saucer aft rim nozzles:

T'Pol: "Captain, it's lodged near Impulse Reactor 2."
The saucer engines resemble the TOS ones in looks and size and placement; the boom ones look more like TNG era tech - and perhaps best approximate the warp engines of the Defiant from DS9! Perhaps they are in fact part of the warp machinery? They could be important warp field emitters, or then incidental features such as vents for excess or spent warp plasma...

Your right, I don't think they were ever mentioned on screen, but over at Drex Files I seem to recall the man himself calling them impulse engines when he said that the pylons were originally only 1/3rd the size they are, and "never went past the impulse engines".
