    Yeah, so I threw something together for this dealie-oh.

    Kaboom, baby.

    So, yeah, I didn't spend a lot of time on this, but its what it looks like. A cheesy Enterprise.

    The only thing I'm not happy with is that somehow I've managed to make a FJ-style hanging dish not look stupid.

    Man, that is just really cool...(I need to find the right "period-word")
    That's awesome. I could actually see that fleshed out into something "real"
    for the most part. :) (Has the federation ever had a red ship?) Perhaps the dish could be over-stylized in chrome and mounted like a hood ornament. Perhaps some buick portholes...

    *I seem to remember, right after the abramprize reveal, somebody here did something vaguely similar, sort of a "cartoon-chevy belaire-meets enterprise"...I can't remember...

    Anyway, this is cool.

    Hmmm...maybe that's why I liked it? :) Jeez, in fact it kind of resembles the "metaluna" followup I've been working on...
    Perhaps I should take a break from trek art and do still-life drawings of fruit or something...:)

    Actually, I think Masao did a '57 Chevy version of the Enterprise a while back. It was even in red!

    I remember that. It was actually a '59 Caddy version for another monthly contest - "What if the Enterprise/Star Trek was designed by ___________?".

    The Metaluna resemblance is very strong. I was basically thinking "what if the 1950s crapped all over the Enterprise?".

    The Metaluna is a bit more practical, though. This is like... a hot rod fantasy.

    Yeah, I was thinking that the dish would be chrome. And that it would retract and/or pivot whenever it would be cool - not necessarily whenever it would be practical. Also the little lip around it is meant to be chrome, and those little... gill thingies on the backs of the nacelles.

    Oh and, "really cool, daddy-oh!" is the period lingo I think you're lookin' for, cat. *snaps fingers*
