search : "Star Trek Prototype" to see it
I'd be very skeptical about buying that without some kind of proof that it is in fact the original mock-up created for the show. There are a lot of talented scratch-build modelers out there.
Yeah, it's the one I built for Voyager back in 1994. Left it behind in the art department like a dummy. The guy who must have grabbed it initially and put it up on ebay ages ago was connected with the Trek DVD productions, particularly the cast and crew interviews.

Thanks Rick, it's always nice to have a bit of background info and you can't get a better stamp of authenticity than that!

Re: Making the Intepid Class Prototype (Sternbach)

This is my latest pic featuring the prototype intrepid. I call this 'The Bad Landing...'



First off, I must say that I didn't do the background. This was obtained from fabuloussavers.com wallpapers. I just wanted to re-create the famous USS Voyager crash landing with the Intrepid Class prototype that I have recently completed in Sketchup. I had to get the lighting and angle just right to match the scene. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it.

On a side note; this little project actually made me wonder if this incarnation of Voyager would have fared a little better in crashing into an ice planet? Would those long warp nacelles have provided a nice 'sled' for her to skid along on? We shall never know...

Either that, or they would have been crushed and/or sheared away as she skidded, leaving a trail of leaking drive plasma.

The Good Landing
I know this is a bit of an unusual angle but I wanted to get a good shot of the legs. I think from this angle it reminds me of a crouching sumo wrestler, or a frog, hence why I like it. As the ship would undoubtedly have to rest on it's warp sled-like nacelles, I thought that their ventral sections could extend out to cushion the landing (which you can just see here).

Funny how I read it as saying "His looks better" the first time around, and I was thinking, no, Calamity_Si's version looks better so far.

Upon re-reading it, it turns out Polaris 004's version is fatter, and I couldn't agree less.
In the concept sketch, the prototype's primary hull appears wider and shorter (from top to bottom), proportionally, like a sports car, or perhaps a sports wagon (you'll see my reason for choosing this as an analogy in due time), which has enough of a width to add to the vehicle's traction, while having a small, short, aerodynamic profile. Overall, it looks leaner and sleeker overall.
The primary hull of the mock-up on the other hand appears to be either taller, thinner, or both. Like a cross-over, it isn't quite as aerodynamic, or especially as low to the ground, or in other words as sleek as a sports wagon typically can be. It looked unrefined, and perhaps had the proportions had come out differently for the mock-up, perhaps the concept might not have been completely abandoned.
