Re: Design the Next Enterprise

The post is up. Fuzzy you know I think that it is a great idea, and if anyone is a member of STO and thinks it would be good form on Cryptic's to showcase all the great art that so many did, only to have it no longer out there for all to enjoy, let the powers that be know at this link.

Maybe you could contact Hallmark and have your ship and the runners up as ornaments.

Long story short, Gabe contacted me via FB and basically called me a no talent hack and such, a few things about the people in the suits, etc. But he and I talked it out, he had a bit of libations and was having a bad day, he has since removed any of his rant, and he and I had a nice long talk last night. He is a pretty good guy actually and after hearing what happened I can see why he was so bitter, not going to get into the what s and why as it was between He and I, needless to say it is a non issue, so lets move on and forget it.
I think the takeaway here is that we should not drink and blog.

Or not.

Anyhoo, moving this thread back on topic...

Here's some renders of that rough as mesh I made of the E-F. I think the overall shape is reasonably accurate, right down to the stupid looking neck intersection. If I carry on with this, the first order of business for me will be to go off "canon" and streamline this whole area. A T joint neck just doesnt look right.

Anyhoo, onto the pics!

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

So here's my "adjusted" version with the streamlined neck. I hope Cryptic sees this, as I feel it not only makes sense from an aesthetic viewpoint but also a practical one "in universe" as it adds more interior volume to the ship and also structural integrity to the necks.









The mesh itself is pretty damned messy though so I don't think I'll be carrying on with this. I'm still not entirely sure how that saucer/neck line blends into the nacelle struts and how that in turn blends with the secondary hull, but oh well. I hope you guys dig what i've done.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

I never did like the idea of the red nacelle end caps being bussards, but the insides of that neck look to be intakes, perhaps. Heck, that design might even spark the imagination of someone doing work on scramjets...

^Yes, I'm sure aerospace engineers look for ideas here all the time.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Didn't one of Ihlecreation's original sketches have the impulse engines all up in the neck? I recall them being some pretty sexy-looking vertical installations. And there would actually be room for it now.

Hey! I resemble that remark!

Wanted to extend my congratulations to Mr. Ihle in winning the Enterprise Contest and the others who really put up some very creative designs.

Live Long and Prosper!

She's a real beauty Adam!

I added a little more polish after getting Andrew Probert's help. Mostly she's just smoother around the neck/strut area.

I wasn't sold on the potatoprise and still don't think that it was the best ship in the contest. The render, however, is nice.

I'd take that ship over the nu-prise and Voyager.

They worked it out.
