    I’ve been working on various incarnations of Matt Jefferies concept Enterprise for some time. I wanted to make something that fit his design basis, yet also with current Trek design history.

    I’ve done one before, but it seemed to simple. Then it dawned on me to take the Star Trek: Enterprise NX-01 saucer and merge it to the concept secondary hull and nacelles. The size works perfectly for the size intent. So, here’s what we have so far, starting with Jefferies’ concept.

    So- This is what I did at the week at a cottage. Still working on it. I didn't mean to do any interiors, but I couldn't help putting in some basic stuff...

    Unlike some, my Engines are in the nacelle, and Engineering is of course where the power transfer controls, et c... Not important to most people I suppose.

    I've always loved the idea of the impulse drive on the back of the saucer support dorsal. I think it would look nice in place of the aft torpedo bay of Aridas Sophi'a Balson/federation dreadnaught refit--perhaps with a bit of a raised spine, as in some of Jefferies drawings.

    Back on topic--I really like your pre-TOS work. They clearly look to come before the Connie.

    Masao's Valley Forge actually looks more advanced than the TOS Enterprise to me.
