2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

Here's a starship design I've been working on for a while - the Integrity-Class, which I imagine was launched in 2200.

Halfway between the NX-class and the Constitution-class, this ship borrows from both eras of design. Also, imagining that the USS Kelvin was launched sometime BEFORE 2233 (maybe 2215, given that the Kelvin appears pretty used when we see her), I chose to borrow lots of elements from that design as well.

Preliminary 3D Animation:
>>>Integrity-Class Flyby on Vimeo<<<

This animation uses an extremely low-poly version of the ship, which I'm slowly re-modeling into the high-detail version.


Low-poly ship, with the beginnings of high-poly bridge module.


Detail of the bridge module.

Work has progressed to the nacelles!

Neat, I like the guy wires holding the nacelles.

What software are you using?

Re: 2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

I thought the cables would be pretty controversial. Glad somebody likes them!

I'm using Anim8or. A very homely, underpowered program that I've taken an odd liking to.


Here's some progress.
Working on the superstructure between the nacelles. I'm imagining some kind of secondary engineering up there, so I've given a lot of space for people to work, as well as railings and hatches for exterior maintenance and stuff.


Here's a top view, showing a better view of the massive couplers that hold the nacelles in place. In an emergency, the nacelles can be detached at these points.

Re: 2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

Wow, the Anim8or renderer has progressed since I last used it. I started 3D-ing using Anim8or (before I moving onto Blender), I'm always pleased to see people still using it.

I'm torn on the superstructure and wires. I like the look of them, but I'm not sure how well they fit into the Trek design-scheme.

Re: 2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

Well, maybe they don't fit in so well to what we've seen. But What I'm really interested in doing is legitimately taking steps backward from the TOS Enterprise. The NX-01, while having some small nods to modern spacecraft, really doesn't seem to feel like the sort of spacecraft we'd build in the 2100's. And the TOS Enterprise is too far removed from anything we currently have to make a judgement.

So with something like this, I'm trying to push things away from the NX-01, and into the "actual future spaceship" realm, and justifying why the TOS Enterprise looks the way it does (and hopefully retroactively making it look more advanced at the same time). So I'm stealing elements from the real-world - rather than the Trek world - to do that.

Interesting combination of details. And don´t be fooled by Animat8r... you can do good things with this little app, as you´re showing us.
Ca I invite you to post over www.foundation3d.com too?

Re: 2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

This a great design. I like how it ties 20th Century looking stuff in with the Kelvin design.

I'm not sure how well it fits the established Trek esthetic, but screw 'em! I love it anyhow. It's a refreshing take on a familiar subject.

I look forward to seeing more.

I love the look of the wires, but in space, would something like that ben nesecarry?

Still, they look very cool!! As does the rest of the ship.

Re: 2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

I think the wires make sense actually. Maybe the SIF technology is not mature enough to handle a load as massive as these engines so the wires are there to help compensate for the limitations of the field technology. By the time of the Kelvin, the SIF generation abilities have matured to the point of being able to handle the mass.

Plus, they look cool, dammit!

Re: 2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

Needs something below the saucer to balance it out imho. Also, take a look at ENT era Klingon ships to see how they implemented the idea of cables to support structures.

I do love the structure between the nacelles, though. Reminds me of old battleships.

Re: 2200's Integrity-Class Starship WIP

Thanks for the input!
And yeah, Albertese's explanation is sort of what I was imagining when I added the cables. Even in space, such massive engines would put a lot of stress on a their relatively small contact point during acceleration in any direction - forwards, backwards, spinning, etc. So it just felt right to imagine that more primitive ships might need to lash down the protrusions to spread the load.

Got some more progress!

Here's a rear view, showing some of the new details on the superstructure


And here's a shot showing off the previously undepicted undercarriage, which will hold the navigational deflector and other goodies.
