Starship Pegasus

Here's a little something I tossed off last night over the course of about an hour: The Starship U.S.S. Pegasus.

She's still very much under development.

She's a bit long, I know. But I was operating under a self-imposed constraint: the major shapes had to fit within 4 identical circles.

I imagine she's another very flat design, even the warp nacelles - I see them having the proportions of a York Peppermint Patty.



Expect to see some variations that abandon the 4-circle rule. I did a manipulation with the struts & nacelles much closer to the saucer, and it don't look half-bad!

Re: Starship Pegasus

I'm studying this design, and the stuff that reveals itself to me as I draw.

That COULD be a nav deflector dish embedded on the top of the saucer. If it IS, I think I'm going to postulate that the bridge is embedded deep within the saucer, like the CIC on a Battlestar Galactica battlestar.

But I think that dish-looking thingie is actually probably the bridge module, up topside, pushed close to the edge, but NOT the highest point on the saucer, surrounded & topped by other decks and structures.

I don't know for sure, really - I'm just the designer, after all.

I love the nacelles. They'd look badass modeled. A lot of interesting shapes on the saucer too. Can't wait to see more.

Here's an update.

I ditched the 4-circle design 'cuz I liked where this one was going. I think she's going to end up as a tall ship. (But I don't know if she's going to be a BIG ship - I am wrestling back and forth as I add details, and the details push the impression of size up and down as I add them.)

And, I went with the "bridge-forward" design.

I purposefully pulled in echos of the Enterprises "A" and "D" to try and ground my sometimes-crazy shapes to some traditional Trek design normalcy.

I don't think she looks bad for 2 evenings of work, about 2 hours, start to finish, invented and developed directly on the computer.

Re: Starship Pegasus

Just keeps getting better. Certainly has the look of a taller ship now. So will there be an arch over/behind the bridge? And if so, what goes there?

Re: Starship Pegasus

Great minds think somewhat alike, eh?

I like the return to a tall ship, yet with lots of horizantal bits and bulging curves. Takes us away from the angular late 90s/2000s modern designs, and harks to something more Ferrari Dino-esque. I can't help but feel, though, that the nacelle pylons should be a bit wackier.

That is a sexy ship given the Robert Blackman treatment and strapped in a sexy spatial corset
