Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

This is beautiful work and an amazing continuation of that original design.

Dennis, the Adams/McQuarrie design never really got out of the art/tubes & cardboard phase, did it? For all we know, LordSarvain's design is pretty close to what they might have ended up with, only way more detailed.

And this makes me think of the E-D, which the "original" did too. As in, they might have had the Adams/McQuarrie look in mind when they were designing the new Enterprise in the mid-80's.

Edit: sorry, meant Enterprise D, not E

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

I really like the attempt to realize the earlier concepts.
And the work is very well done indeed. I like!
However...

I'm not too keen on the style of the nacelles.
Maybe I'm getting the bad aftertaste of the nacelles off the Abramsprise. Or perhaps they look too much like the engines off a Tomcat or Phantom jet fighter.
The intakes, the cowlings, seem too much like conventional propulsion elements rather than warp drive components. Just my personal take.
And yet...the nacelle work IS quite nicely done!

Look forward to seeing more art on the model.

I've always thought the E-D was initially inspired by the McQuarrie design.

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

A lot of people don't agree, but I think the similarity is in the flattened back end and the pylons.

The concept had a much smaller saucer. I think LordSarvain did a good thing making the saucer a little bigger. More proportional this way.

Might be shooting for severely, but I'm not sure that really works either.

At least it's not "hella".

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

Wow I had no idea there would be this much feed back, I'm used to only getting a couple of responses after a post. Thanks for all the kind words.

I didn't realize this had already been seen here before, but I'm glad everyone seems to be liking it.

Currently, I've stripped all the materials off and am reworking them because some problems had developed. Also I'm rebuilding the impulse engines on the primary hull and putting in some windows. Basically I'm doing everything I can to delay actually texturing it lol. I'll post some updated pics soon

Anyway here's some color pics before the modifications...

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

I really like this one except for the end caps on the engines. I never think of the warp drive engines as generating some sort of reddish thrust as others might. I like the notion that there are retractable globes back there that come out during warp and are pulled back in during impulse flight.

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

There's really nothing I don't like about this. Paramount has my permission to use this as Kirk's ship in the next reboot.

Holy Crap!!!! This freaking rocks. A little TNG tweak here and there, and this would have been a kick ass USS Titan. Looks good from all angles and has a powerful presence.

Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

To heck with the next reboot, I wish this had been the design for the last reboot!

LordSarvain, you've got a fine-looking ship there. I'd quibble with minor details here and there, but you've done such a fine job it'd be serving gravy over filet mignon to argue for any changes. I can't believe you've made such a fine silk purse out of that old sow's ear!

The nacelle signage ... is that lit by a row of lights above and below? What's under the secondary hull with such enormous aft-facing windows? Why are the auxiliary hangar doors (1, 2, and 3) asymmetrically arranged -- is what's in the space that would house 4? I really want to explore this ship!

this is so great, it has an almost regal, ocean liner kind of presence to it. And I love everything about the nacelles!!
