^^ Excuse me, but couldn't you post a smaller image? It's easily four or five times bigger than it needs to be.

That said, I've see that image and it doesn't click for me.

Oh, I'm so bummed out. I should be ashamed that I didn't confer with you first on how it had to be done.

I should be embarrassed with putting my own idea forth rather than following what everyone else has done?

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

I'm down with all your ideas W9, as far as the E I honestly think you should give the engines a bit... more. Just for the sake of balance.



Something like that. It's hard to really see it in my head from proper cinematic angles, so maybe i'm wrong. I just thought i'd offer up my two cents.

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

I'm thinking of giving the nacelles a bit more heft by enlargening them overall while keeping the proportions. That will be easy enough to do when I model it in 3D. Things look different in 3D.

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

Well, now that Warped9 has become quite skilled with Sketchup (a veritable modeling maniac!), he can readily model his concept and thus depict it from every conceivable angle.

Aww, bugger! I see I just got "ninja'd by you, Warped9.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

For the moment I'm thinking about the structure atop the saucer. Either how to shape it as is or modifying the shape into something else. That structure is about 2-3 decks thick with the bridge near the centre of it, but not quite at the very top.

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

Might not look like a big difference, but I've enlargened the nacelles about five percent overall (while keeping the exact same shape and proportions) to give them a bit more heft. I tried making them ten persent larger and while it's only marginally larger I felt they started looking too heavy. Seen head on these nacelles would be rather ovod in shape. The secondary hull is also ovoid as seen head on, but it's not nearly as noticeable. As seen from above or below the secondary hull will be somewhat reminiscent of the Starfleet delta.

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

I think that gives it much better balance now. Yes.

What do you intend to do for the fore end of the stardrive section?

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

Anyway a bit more detail before I start modelling. Note the front view of the secondary hull and nacelles: they are not cylibders in the usual sense, but a bit more ovoid, or rather spherical on the sides and a bit flattened on top and bottom. Note, too, how the support pylons will attach to the nacelles---as seen from front (or back) they will have some suggestion of something wing like. Something like the gull wing of an Vought F4U Corsair but inverted.



Hmm. I think I might widen the nacelles a wee bit more.

I get what you're going for. But I think it looks more "out-of-balance" than the Abramsverse version at this stage.

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

When I initially designed this I "pushed" the ideas in Matt Jefferies' original design with some nods to the TMP refit as well. I also did lots of perspective sketches to get a handle of the shapes and proportions before I did a schematic. So when I start modelling this I've already got a fair idea of how it will look and I shouldn't have to tweak it too much in overall shape and proportions.

As far as the JJtrek design we'll have to agree to disagree.

My original inspiration for this was an odd looking ship I saw in a Japanese Manga comic many years ago. There was something in its shape that struck a chord and it got me thinking about how I could modify MJ's ideas. I was also thinking in terms of some things I've seen on the covers of SF novels, or more secifically the aesthtics of the designs on those covers. Initially I thought of this as a possible post TNG design, but now I envision it as something not set in that continuity and thus allows me more freedom while still retaining a measure of familiarity.

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

Warped9's design remind me a lot of the NX-1701-A design.

Re: TOS in the 29th century...

I always liked that concept but felt that the secondary hull needed a few more design passes.
