    The ship looks amazing! Can't wait to see what you do with this!

    Yes, 20 years before TOS. But I wouldn't call it just "another" film. :-)

    It seems the Enterprise launched in 2245, and that is the year we have set "Axanar", as you will see the Enterprise in spacedock being built and Robert April is a major character, basically Garth's mentor.

    I think that's a perfectly reasonable approach.

    Well, here are Sean's concept sketches for the costumes so far.

    The Male Tunic is two pieces, a black mock turtleneck undershirt, and a tunic that goes over it.

    The Female is a one piece jumpsuit over which goes a tunic.

    Here is the Schematics that Tobias Ritcher had to work from. Originally they were separate files, but I decided to combine them into one for this image.

    Since there are going to be two fleets fighting at The Battle of Axanar, we are going to need multiple ship classes for each race. For Starfleet, we will be using the Kelvin class, and will be creating 3-5 more ship classes. Same for Klingons.

    So we are thinking of running a contest for 3D modelers to design a ship we would use. I ran it by Tobias and he likes the idea. Thought I would run it by you all and see what you guys think.

    Sounds like an interesting idea. With the kelvin are you going with the jj look or more like the Classic look? As for the fleet that sounds like fun.

    Tobias already has a Kelvin model and since it is basically canon, we are going with that. Remember, everything up until the point at which the Narada shows up is PRIME timeline.

    Well, everything up unitl 1930 is the same. If and when the Nu-Kirk goes back through the Guardian of Forever, he might make some subtle changes to the time line that make things different from the timeline that Kirk Prime knew. Nu-Kirk might have created something inadvertantly in 1930 that makes everything in the Prime timeline become the J.J. universe. The interference might all have started a couple of centuries earlier, way back in 1930 before the Narada ever showed up.

    I have a somewhat different take. My theory is that what we saw at the beginning of "Trek '09" was not the prime universe from TOS but a universe altered by all the time-travely stuff from "Enterprise".

    OK, so here is a question we are discussing on the production team.

    "Axanar" takes place in 2245, 20 years before TOS (The Enterprise is launched in 2245). We know the Kelvin (2233) is canon. In the "alternate" timeline of JJ verse, we have ships in 2258 that look Kelvin like, but are obviously older than the new Enterprise. So these ships probably were built before 2233, in fact it makes sense that they were.

    We at "Axanar" are not bound by any design aesthetic IMHO, but we want to craft one that makes sense in canon. Our interiors will all look like TOS but with changes. So the ships need to look similar to TOS as well as the Kelvin design aesthetic.

    Our designs are squarely BETWEEN 2233 and the Kelvin and 2245 and the TOS Enterprise (launched 2245 and so the pinnacle of Starfleet design). I think we are going to go with the ST 09 ships and assume that they are the generation BEFORE the Ares and two generations before Enterprise.

    We might even upgrade some of them with Ares style engines.

    I would love to hear what people think about this.

    I think that's a fair enough approach. The only thing about the Kelvin era ships I don't particularly like, is that they just seem a bit too big for the era.

    i'd say don't get hung up about what is canon, what timeline,etc as at this point its all so convoluted as to become tedious.

    coolness and a gripping story is what everyone should want ;D

    I have forwarded a few ideas to Alec and Tobias to look over. The fleet should look cool when fleshed out.

    How about some ships from the Spaceflight Chronology
