    Dr. White begins at time: 00:13:00 in the video. Ship images are shown at the end of his presentation, at time: 00:55:44.

    So... here are captures from the above Starship Congress 2013 presentation - to show what a real warpdrive starship would look like. Looks like the front section undocks (ahead of the pylons), to be a lander vehicle. :techman:

    Now if we only had a way to make magical negative energy.

    Not impressed until you can make something based in reality.

    That spacecraft is one of the artworks from the Star Trek Ships of the Line 2014 calendar.

    ^ Does the calendar give additional information about his ship? Like its dimensions, or crew numbers, a ship name, etc.?

    There's plenty of time to develop the exotic energy space-dilation drive system after they come up with a good color scheme for the ship.

    I like the beige/tan color that it is. But, I would add a bit more of the red-brown trimming to it. I hope that color scheme carries over to a bright interior also.
