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

I love this too, although I agree with Potemkin_Prod's comments about the aft nacelle caps. Maybe you could borrow a concept from deg3d's TOS remake concept.

I love everything but the lettering on the hull. Too TMP/TNG-ish. I suppose it's just me, but I would love to see the "Airborne"-style block-lettering typeface from the TOS Enterprise brought back, and the boomerang-style Starfleet pennant with it.

Wowzers! Well done, man!

I could see the first Study Model being a concept ship- it tried out all the technology going into this concept. Maybe a few were made and the project shelved for a while. The originals carried on menial support assignments. Then Starfleet decided to revive the ship concept, and along comes your design!

What I don't like (and I wouldn't expect you to change your baby here), are the impulse engines- I would make them a wee bit larger (just a bit though), the nacelle cowlings, and the end caps on the nacelles- red and recessed like that just don't do it for me.

I'm in the same camp as those who didn't like the McQuarrie design until now (perhaps it's because this has been fleshed out considerably more than McQuarrie's rudimentary pencil sketches). Keep up the good work.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Might be shooting for severely, but I'm not sure that really works either.

At least it's not "hella".
yes severely. Sorry im a genetically bad speller ^__^;

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

Thanks again for the comments.

Potemkin_Prod - End caps will probably remain as is but I'm curious about the retractable bulbs, which ship had those? Is that something from the new movie? My eyes may have been overcome by the lens flares lol

Psion - Yes, the signage on the nacelles is lit by the rows of lights at the top and bottom. The big windows under the hangar bay are the botanical gardens, no sense dragging trees and such all through the ship when you can just drop it down a hole in the ceiling. Now that just made think of adding in a shuttle with a tree strapped to the roof landing in the bay... hmmm... Between the main hangar and the smaller bay #1 is a shuttle repair bay. I might open up that smaller bay later on so you can see inside.

Wingsley - I actually tried out that font on this ship but it just didn't look right. I think if I were doing a more rigid version closer to RM's original concept with a lot of straight lines it might work. I think my version is just too curvy so TMP font seemed to work better. I really like deg3d's version of the TOS Enterprise but I really try, not always successfully, but I do try very hard not to borrow from someone else's models. It's not that I think that I can do a better job of it (certainly not in the case of deg3d) but just because I want to try and make something unique.

Patrickivan - Impulse engines are being reworked and they will be bigger, but the warp engines are pretty much done, for this version anyway

Well back to work, more pics soon!

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

I am really beginning to love this ship. I was never a favorite of McQuarrie design, but this is fantastic. I love the progress that is being made and totally well done. I am looking foreward to more updates, keep them coming.

Beautiful work. I love the nacelle design you came up with and how it sort of flows into the "wings"/ secondary hull area.

The original series Enterprise. I'm one of the crazy camp that believes that the spheres on the end caps came out when in warp and retracted when in impulse behind the vents. I don't believe there's any thrust there (as confirmed by TMP's Enterprise with the fluted wing tips on the warp drive ends). Your model's beautiful, but makes it look like there's 60's batmobile-esque exhaust nozzles back there.

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

It looks excellent and it makes some great "What if..." scenarios in my mind.

But I want to poke my brain with a Q-tip right now because when I saw the close up of the phasers a Cylon voice spoke in my ear saying, "By your command."

You're not the only one who saw Cylons

The beauty of this ship continues to amaze. Still, I'm glad, no matter how nice it could've looked in 1977, that they didn't change the Enterprise so radically.

I mean, we were up in arms when Abrams made the E look like he did in an alternate timeline/universe.

In the original concept art, was that chute at the rear (right under the hangar doors) supposed to be the impulse engines? (sorry if that was asked before)

Here I was just wondering last week if the "flying cheese wedge" could be made into something desirable - glad to see it can! Nice job! Looking forward to more - textured, I'll bet this is gonna be really stellar (NPI).
