    For the longest time I had misinterpreted this image as a concept for a flying wing NX-01 (it's really a concept for launching an NX prototype concept before it was made Phoenix style).

    What if the NX-01's final form was this, with its saucer as a flying wing lander, and the warp power train as something which ejects to stay in orbit? Also, no shuttles, and no transporter, but perhaps the ability to land and take off vertically, and land on land or water. Would that be too primitive for the period, or better than what we got?

    I love Eaves' OV-165, Emmette, and Warp Delta

    I've never seen this concept art before. Thanks for posting it.

    There's one other, and decided to make my own version in Fan Art.

    Oh boy! I found the big version on Eaves blog.
