WIP USS Conviction

This one is almost finished. The main topic is here:
http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/s...USS-Conviction

Here are the last images from the project. It's a Abramverse ship located around the same era as Enterprise. The NCC-1404 has been chosen in that regard, a Alka-Selsior Class. Some elements are more retro like the phaser turrets, pods, the array. Sorry if I didn't post here before, I hope you enjoy it. It kind of started out of nowhere, since at first I had only done the emitter array. Even the topic didn't start well LOL! After that I decided to do an Abramsverse ship, because I always wanted to do a version of the universe design.

^ ENT era ships were exactly the same in Abramsverse. It was set decades before Nero came back in time and killed Kirk's Daddy.

Plus it looks more advanced than the Kelvin.

That's because I decided to take it a step further. Making them on rails but still pretty much exposed in a way. Has for the mix windows...well...there was a bug in 3dsmax. I couldn't do round windows into the saucer because of it, so I decided for a mix but keeping it at minimal.

Sometimes you don't control some stuff like bugs, and you work around it. I didn't know that when you attach a shape, and you do a boolean...that particular shape will get included in the boolean. Technical bug but annoying.

"Bug in the industrial-scale replicator" certainly sounds like something which might be on an early era spaceyard status report.

Re: WIP USS Conviction

I have made the post on my site with the last renders. Hope you enjoy.

"It is a Star Trek fictive ship that would have existed in the “Abramsverse” around the same time as Enterprise. It is a class Alka-Selsior NCC-1404. The design is a mix of the Enterprise of Abrams, with some more evolution elements like turrets on rails, etc… For the fun of it: Crew is around 500. Among notable crew members: the captain is Curzon Dax, and the doctor is Arik Soong. To follow two wallpapers and a presentation movie"

Re: WIP USS Conviction

It's good, But I agree with the second post on this thread, ENT era ship were the same in the JJverse. Plus the nacelles look Enterprise E ish, And it kind of looks like a flying duck with a massive head, Kinda like the galaxy class side profile, Though I love the Galaxy design, this ship could Definitely be an early 24th Century era ship from the jjVerse though! All around it's a nice design though!

Re: WIP USS Conviction

Or a horse neck...that was more in that view. That said, if you go to my site you can pick up two wallpapers 1900x1080.

To not break the forum I will not post a picture that big.
If you want them directly

Re: WIP USS Conviction

I also agree with the second post. This ship might be a little more at home as a Lost Era ship, with a suitable registry to boot.
Somewhere between maybe NCC-7000 to NCC-10500, before the Ambassador Class, but before the or around the same time as the Renaissance class (albeit as a JJ-Verse ship. No reason that a Prime-Verse equivalent couldn't exist though, as there are only around a couple a dozen designs of TLE).

I recall a the Council class, which was a design based on Probert's Ambassador concept, which used Phaser turrets mounted on tracks in the saucer section, similar in concept to yours.

Unfortunately, I don't think that the engineering hull looks quite as advanced as the rest of the ship.
