very nice work -looks great!
The images are definitely some of the best I've seen on the internet.
I was just wondering if I may be able to use some of them for my Star Trek simm which will feature an Ambassador Class ship? I would really appreciate it. Would add you to the credits page of my site as well.
I see im not the only one whos asked.
Very nice. I've always loved the Ambassador class design.
Hi guys, sorry for the super-late reply. I appreciate all your comments though
jimster77 - Haha! That's awesome.
JES - I have mostly 2D work on cghub (http://ryo-80.cghub.com/) but I'll be throwing most of the more recent, Trek-related stuff up as soon as I can. Been thinking about a place where I can put all of it up.
Tellarites4Ever - Let me know and I'll see what I can do
Mark_Nguyen - Hah! I'd actually forgotten about the Admiral back when I started this is 2011. But yeah, based on the contract code number, he'd be really little when this thing was built. I dunno, the Nakamura website has a much better explanation than I would've come up with haha
FatherRob - Yeah, I really do like the original design Mr. Probert worked on, with the diagonal, forward-swept config on the pylons, personally. Too bad "Yesterday's Enterprise" was under such time/resource constraints...
Taking some advice from some folks here and over on scifi-meshes, I changed a few things with the ship. But I had to work from an older version of the ship, due to a HD failure, so the lit rooms in the saucer section aren't in-place yet.
Sorry for the huge images!
I have never seen the amabassador class looking more lovely than here. Well done on an excellent job
I am even more sold on the Ambassador class now than I was before. Great job!
A nice take on Enterprise C was the Council class...seen here (scroll down)
Now there were two version as per Ex Astris. One had a wider shuttlebay, another had a more narrow version. http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/articles/ambassador.htm
Did you split the difference?
Something you might do for the next project. I really like the concept of the overlay, as here:
What might be nice is to trace the outermost line of each combination to reach the ultimate incarnation...
Wow!! The Ambassador Class is one of my favorites and this is just fantastic work!!
Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it Been a busy week at work, this week. But I'll have the rooms in the saucer section in place this weekend.
It was a bit unintentional, but I think I did split the difference. In putting the stardrive together, I didn't see that the hangar end of it was wider, like the Yamaguchi version until I'd already frozen it and started detailing. Though the references for the Enterprise C are scant at best, I tried to take what I could from the later iterations of her and match them up as well as possible.
And hmm... I haven't thought of an overlay before in my rendering. I'll play around with it. Which schematics were you looking to have it measured against?
I was thinking about a new piece of work, combining the best aspects of the ships here
No hotlinking, just cut and paste>
On the first,
You notice the deflector dish pokes out a bit, but not as badly as on the JJ. So having a combination secondary hull with the TOS dish fore, but the TMP all the way back would look even more fluid. Imagine the outer-most line of each:
Now on the second.
I like the added length of the JJ shuttlebay to be taked on to the composite I suggested above, and to widen the saucer of the refit out to JJ specifications. Raise the refit naceles to where JJ has them (only longer refit nacelles)
And your end composite of the 3 connie type ships will be even more swan-like.
