Other USS Titan designs

Personally, I dislike the official design that graces Titan novels. I expected something a lot more elegant, not something clunky and rather ugly.

I know there was a contest before that design was chosen.

Is there maybe a collection of the contest entries available?

Did maybe John Eaves do a concept sketch for Nemesis, if it was ever considered to show the ship?

Before the official design came out I had thought it might have been a Galaxy class. I haven't seen any of the other designs other than the official.

Re: Other USS Titan designs

I do remember some people here posting their designs for the contest, whether they completed them in time or not. And the guy who won posts here on occasion under the name Titan Designer. I don't know if anyone kept a collection, though.

Re: Other USS Titan designs

Wow, so long ago. I was one person who entered. This was mine:






I'm actually pretty embarrassed to look at those now - I was just learning Illustrator at the time. My take was that the class would be somewhere between the Galaxy and the Intrepid, kind of the Sovereign's "friendly little sister."

I also began developing a yacht for it:


TitanDesigner is the alter ego of Sean Toureangeau, whose work may be seen on his deviantArt page in greater detail. He's a talented guy, and moreover, I think he found the niche that the judges wanted; his design is to the Sovereign what the Nebula is to the Galaxy.

I designed one, but missed the deadline... Posted it on the site here somewhere Lol...

Nice job on yours. Reminds me of the modular design for the E concept in TNG tech manual.

Re: Other USS Titan designs

Thank you sir. I hope you'll find yours.

(And I was a bit inspired by that one in the TM.)

Re: Other USS Titan designs

Our own Forbin made that one, I do believe. Indeed it is a fine one.

Yes it is, but as he mentions on that page, it was designed prior to the contest.

This was pretty much it- though at the time, it was just a "paint" version...

Re: Other USS Titan designs

Those designs are all way more elegant than what eventually became official.

I have to agree with you. Titan is my favorite novel series, but I wasn't too happy with the ship design they went with.

Heh, funny. Personally I think that the Luna class design that won is one of the better fandesigns.

Meh, I think it's all over the place, and there is no flow. It looks like a kitbash of Enterprise-E, Voyager and Akira. The names "Titan" and "Luna class" sound like something a lot more graceful and elegant.
