Re: Design the Next Enterprise

I can't enter this contest :-( so I haven't done a new design. However I think I would like to possibly see this is a new Enterprise. I took the idea of the catamaran style connecting hulls of the Akira and flipped it sideways.

^^ It's why I've long suspected that the ship's impulse drive is really a form of antigravity drive.
Didn't Rick Sternbach once mention that 24th century starship impulse engines acted more like a sub-warp drive, in that they produce little or no pure rocket thrust.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise



Here is another Teaser Image for my entry for the Star Trek Online Design The Next Enterprise Contest.
All I am still working on is the image for the bottom, but the other views are complete. I re-did the Nacelle Pylons As well as elongated the secondary hull a little[SIZE=3

I will still finish the other configuration, I may even enter it if I can enter more than one design. Either way this has jump started my ship design frame of mind again.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Yeah, even though I can't submit it, i've still been working at it.

Im onto the pointless details phase, and yes, its quick and dirty but I dont care as its just conveying the general idea of the ship.

I've always seen Impulse as another form of Warp Drive...a field propulsion. A more inferior form.

Hi Folks,

Given the hack job a quick makeover by tweaking the shapes and adding a few trek conventional colours.

Cheers,

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Science Officer, I can't help but wonder what it would look like if you changed the direction of one of the sets of pylons? If you make them thinner and reverse a pair so they make an angled loop, it might spice it up a bit and break the uniformity of it.

Titan Designer, thanks. The more I see of yours the more I like it.

OK, so it's a quick & dirty shot, and the overall ship is interesting, if not exciting yet - that will come if you develop it.

BUT THOSE NACELLES! WOWIE-WOW-WOW! That Coke-bottle shape is giving me wood. You need to develop them, maybe even as stand-alone items.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Seeing as the saucer seems to be a thorn in everyone's sides, what do you all think of the following?


Classic Circle?


Wide Galaxy-esque?


Thin Sovereignish?


Voyagerish?


Dauntlessish?


Star Trek:Final Frontier Ent-H? (WTF were they thinking?)


ZE BALL!


Ace of Spades?


Queen of Hearts?


Jack of Clubs?


King of Diamonds?

I really never had a problem with the saucer aside from that dimple thing in the first version you showed, but the tons of windows on the sides of the engineering hull need to be cut back a little. If there was a bit more space between the rows, they would look better.

It has more to do with Doug Drexler's pizza cutter (Ent-J) being a rather polarizing design.
