    I took a quick look at the listing of special features on the 4 seasons of Enterprise on The Digital Bits website and didn't see one on the Production Design of the NX-01.

    I only saw this on at Memory-alpha:
    I've seen the text commentary on Regeneration Episode #049 by the Okudas that mention the computer displays.

    Is there a featurette that deals with the production design/art direction of the NX-01 somewhat and how it was designed as pre- NCC-1701 technology?
    Which season has it so I can get it form Netflix?

    Interesting one. John Eaves did both designs for Defiant and Enterprise NX-01, as far as I'm aware. Herman Zimmerman the interior set design.

    If anything, I imagine there should be something on Season 1 Disc 7. Why they decided on the 22nd Century and it's look. Behind the scenes shots of the set being assembled there as I recall.

    This is actually the kind of thing Rod Roddenberry's new "treasure trove of material" project will likely be covering. I can only speculate, since nobody seems willing to impart any info about it.

    Zimmerman was clearly talking about the interior set design, including the similarities of the Defiant and NX-01 bridges, not the exteriors of the ships.

    Eaves did some NX-01 concepts, but the final NX-01 design came from Doug Drexler.

    Rod Roddenberry project

    I do not know anything about this project. Could you point me to a link or two? Title of the project for me to do some Google searching or memory-alpha?


    EDIT:
    found it I think:

    his much-anticipated Star Trek Documentary, “Trek Nation”.

    I was more interested in the interior production design though.

    Bother. I should've known that. What with the small clue, "Drexler", bottom right of my current wallpaper and all...

    Minus one point, both in my fandom and IQ level. :lol:

    It may be on this:
    Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (Special Collector’s Edition) (2003)
    The Star Trek Universe featurettes
    “Herman Zimmerman: A Tribute” 19 minutes
    I haven't seen it and since is on a feature film disc I don't know if it goes into much detail of Enterprise interior designs. I put it on my Netflix Que. Has anyone seen it and can mention how much about ENT is deals with?
