I don't mind the departure from 24th century they just look more Star Wars-ish...than original.

just to point out, if they looked more "Star Trek-ish" they wouldn't be original, either.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Here is a teaser image of what I have so far for my 1701-F for the Contest
I won't post anymore until after the contest, but I thought I would wet the pallette.
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Good luck to all who enter.

That is a very interesting sillhouette. Cannot wait to see a more detailed picture of this design.

It's not my cup of tea, but it does seem to echo some of the design theory in the game.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

I like the Nacelles, Not sure what I feel about the fron of the Saucer. Promissing design though. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, the front of the saucer and having the nacelle pylons jut out of the cut in the bottom of the engineering hull doesn't really work.

saucer cant decide whether to be voyager shaped or ent-d shaped. also nacelle-pylon-shelf thing a bit odd.

nice nacelles though!

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

I will go against the crowd and say that I really like the saucer on Dac's ship. The way the nacelle pylons connect to the secondary hall looks kind of weird to me though.

Hmmm. Great minds thing a like.
I experimented with a Crescent style myself years ago.
I'm going in a much different direction that everyone else here it seems.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Thanks Herkimer.

Its still really in a concept phase. Im just experimenting with bits and bobs. Im really trying to blend the E-D/E with the E-J, hence the pointy bits at the end of the nacelles and the "reach around" secondary hull.

I dig the low slung pylons though, because it gives it the look of the Enterprise-D from the front, but the instant you change angle it looks like something else entirely. Plus, its something we don't see a lot of in trek, so thats another reason I like it.

As for the saucer, I see what you guys mean, it does kinda stick out like a sore thumb a bit. Im gonna try and blend it out a little so it doesnt jut out quite so much.
