The old fan design blueprints of the Alaska-Class USS Enterprise 1701-C?
It's teeny (tiny) but, Ship Schematics has it:
heres a Capt Shade style one some reason the Cygnus blueprint site dont have it but its also in a book from 1992 or ealyer bout Enterprise History up till then.
Yeech, that design is in some serious need of Atolm love, I must say...
I love that design.
The secondary hull is quite wide, and I can easily see Last Starfighter type lotus blossom emplacements in the dead areas to either side of the sensor/deflector dish so as to add detailed surface treatments.
Large Drone Carrier
Why have I never seen this design? It does need some work but is not bad at all as a starting point. Using Todd Guenther’s Ingram nacelles is nice but maybe a tad off timewise. But what the hell. In Atolm’s capable hands it will turn out fine.
That is indeed quite an interesting ship design, and I would love to see what Atolm does with it.
I’d just like to point out that this is not a FASA design, just a fan-made one after the fact. The ‘Alaska’ class name for the Enterprise-C was from the FASA Officer’s Manual printed during the first season of TNG, before the Ambassador class was revealed as the class for the C. They also had a separate design for the Ambassador class Horatio, which was not meant to be the same design for the C. As a matter of fact, there was no design for the C, the Alaska class presumably being represented by the C sculpture on the Enterprise lineage wall.
Yeah thanks... That is the one I found. I was hoping someone had the originals.
yeah thanks...but I was looking for the original line work.
Very cool idea..
of all people I would have been sure you or Todd had them ... lol Thanks anyway brother
aye that she is.
Aye bro! I am with you
The front view of that ship is in any case quite interesting.
Yeah she does have some interesting ideas from what I can tell on the little diagram. But still no luck on the full blueprint.
I guess that you could see that as a disadvantage but it also means you can have a lot of freedom when it comes to the details of the ship within the general shape it has.
Yeah man, since when do YOU need someone else to tell YOU how to design something?
Over at starshipmodeler.net a year or three back, someone was doing a physical build of this. Jayru is doing something similar at scifi-meshed, but that is a better bridge from refit to Probert’s Ambassador than even this.
Are you referring to Jayru’s Odysseus or did he do something else?
This new ship is USS Horizon NCC-2176
“Not Your Father’s Excelsior”
A refit USS Vengeance with a *real* shuttlebay that bridges NCC-1701-A with Probert’s Ambassador.
But I love the Alaska itself. The secondary hull is different lengths in the top and side views though. I hope Atolm does both ‘versions.’
I think it was posted over scifi-meshes forums.
There´s a comission going on, and a mesh is being built: https://forums.scifi-meshes.com/discussion/10000767/alaska-class-starship
Thanks for the link. Unfortunately it is another artist's interpretation of her.
