USS Constellation, NCC-1017

Hey everybody. I decided to abandon the quad for a while, and do this.

I had this idea a while back,and built a model that I thought would be a cool idea... I thought, what if the USS Constellation we see in the Doomsday Machine episode wasn't a Constitution class ship at all, but an older type that was arranged in a similar configuration? This was my first attempt...



Now, I started over. All the green stuff is temporary, but I have the proportions worked out where I want them.











What do you guys think?

Hopefully I'll have some updates tonight.

Re: USS Constellation, NCC-1017

You've got a great idea and a very good start. It looks like a Baton Rouge era ship from the Abramsverse. I wouldn't have had much of a problem with it as the Enterprise itself.

The pylons for the nacelles look out of place, too 'modern' compared to the rest of the body. Otherwise, off to a good start!

Nice! I always liked the refit Constitution class a lot.

Yeah, I was kind of thinking that they may be a little too swept back. That'll be something to experiment with.

OK, an update as promised.

I was playing with the Nacelles... I'm going for a hybrid Kelvin Style, TOS Style, and Refit Style.



I've got a lot of tweaking to do, but I think I'm on the right track.

Re: USS Constellation, NCC-1017

Wasn't there a ship design like this in the movie? Looks great. Love how you just keep on designing more ships from the new movie Madman.

Re: USS Constellation, NCC-1017

Say, I like it. I'll add my voice to the chorus that the nacelle pylons still feel a bit too swept, but I like your attempt on the nacelles. However, I do miss some of the Kelvin nacelle styling cues from version one, particularly the forward caps. They had a very jet intake feel that I liked.

Still, looking forward to the growth of this.

Re: USS Constellation, NCC-1017

Is this design supposed to fit in with "old school" TOS-TREK, or NuTREK, or both? I do like how your concept resembles one of Jefferies' early sketches for the Enterprise; I've long thought this would make a fine early-Constitution or pre-Constitution-type-cruiser.

If you want to do an "old school" version, may I suggest trying a "Cage"-style "anthill" bridge module on top of that saucer?

Well, I suppose NuTrek... since it was built after the Kelvin. I do like that the flatter saucer idea goes all the way back to that early sketch... I think I am going to find a way to add in those "ridges" on the secondary hull, somewhere.

Here's an update on the Nacelle... I made the Domes smaller, and put in some more "Jet Engine" intake kind of detail. I think it looks more like an evolution from the Kelvin design, this way.



I'm going to start tweaking the back end of the Nacelles next... I'm really enjoying adding all this extra junk on the surface.
