Re: Design the Next Enterprise

I don't think you need to ask permission for a name, particularly one so obvious that its been used for a million fanfics and RPGs.

Besides, names are not copyrightable. You can trademark it(a much more difficult process), but not copyright it.

Lol! I suppose I would be. Oops!

I thought I'd try my hand at bridging the gap between the F and the J:

Very rough of course. Just basic shapes. I might finish them a bit more in the future.

Pretty cool stuff, though I must say I absolutely hate the little saucer wings on G and H.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

@Herkimer Jitty and sojourner: Like I said, restraining from using a class name that has already been used for a design is a sign of respect towards that design and the artist.

You don't have to do this if you don't feel compelled to do so. I'm just saying that I think it would be nice to pay attention to the class names that are chosen by artists with considerable ability.

Oh well, I said my piece. Dwell on it however you will.

I like it. Looks like the NX-01 (Akira) but better. I wonder about the second set of bussard collector though.

Does anyone know more about this design, or where it came from? I'm guessing it's Hasbro exclusive, but I could be wrong.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

I actually quite like it. It's a sleek design that combines the NX-01 and the Ent-E quite nicely. I know many won't like that it includes NX-01/Akira influence into the 1701 line, so maybe it shouldn't be an Enterprise, but regardless, I think it's a nice design.

I guess Ford Motors must have disrespected the heck outta North American Aviation.

Or maybe they called their car the Mustang because its a cool name that conveys the "spirit" of the car on an advertising level?

What considerably talented artists do is a moot point, as nomenclature is concerned. At one point, GKDesigns' Legacy was a fan design for the Titan, but the North America-only contest changed that. It was out of no disrespect to Galen and Kaden - they merely got cockblocked by officially licensed material. You might find it if you looked for the Titan, but you'd have better luck looking for it by the Legacy name.

Plus, there's quite a few Enterprise-F designs out there. Shouldn't STO's devs go with something less common, out of respect to all the artists that have made Enterprise-Fs? Like the Enterprise-Blue? Maybe Super Dimension Galaxy Fortress Enterprise Mark 6?

i'm guessing its a knockoff by someone with a rapid prototyper and some model paint.

Not even a knockoff since it's not an official design, and definitely not something produced by Hasbro. Just another fan design.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Oh wow!

I hadn't seen the twitter photo yet. Super cool sauce!

...though I'm with Vektor in the fact that the meaning of this photo is completely ambiguous at best. It could just as easily be a set of "images that had more vowels than consonants in their filenames." That's where my munnys is.

Y'know, as the contest finale draws closer, I find myself just ridiculously excited to see a new Enterprise revealed. My inner geek is completely aglow just for that fact. Anybody else geeked out about that?

I mean, how many times has this happened in Star Trek's almost half-century on the screen? We're on the cusp of a major event!

Super, duper cool.
