    I actually like the version on the right. Brighter looks--and I first thought "wow--that phaser beam is so concentrated as to be invisible--like an even sharper light sabre."

    they're the best fan renderings of the DSC enterprise i've seen so far, but poster doesn't want to attribute the artist. anybody know the source? reverse google search does not provide the answers.

    Looks great to me, no idea who the artist is, I do much prefer the textures we get on the ships these days.

    The ToS Enterprise model always looked far too white and reminded me of a toilet or a sink, not that it is anyone's fault, the model was designed and built in the 60's after all.

    Thanks for posting these. It only reinforces my opinion that this version of the TOS Enterprise is just dull and uninspired when compared to the original.

    *Edit* Let me be clear that I'm not dissing the artist of this CGI model. He faithfully recreated the ship seen in DSC. I'm dissing the design of the ship, not the artist's work.

    I love the ventral view, probably because it hides the impulse deck which is my least favourite innovation in this take of the Enterprise.

    I'm glad they get rid of that huge bulky impulse deck, and install a much smaller, streamlined deck in its next refit. :)

    Yes, that's Marc Bell's model, as rendered by Daniel "PixelMagic" Broadway. The albums have been going around sci-fi spaceship groups on Facebook for the past couple days.

    Straight pylons would make SO much of a difference in the look of the ship.

    Interesting that these renderings way toned down the garish saucer lights. Looks much better.

    Yeah, man. As stated above by David, those are my renders of Marc Bell's new CG model. The Instagram post has greatly reduced resolution and compression however. I can post the high quality ones in this thread when I get home tonight. There's even more images, actually.

    Model's a bit different, though. The deflector's seems not the same as on the show, for instance.

    production version's deflector is a bit more gold and less orange, also the bridge module has a glass front whereas @PixelMagic's images appear to be without that windshield (or it's just very subtle). either way, it's pretty damn good and i can't wait to see more.

    It looks like a ship that would have been built sometime between the NX-01 and the TOS Enterprise.

    Do you think that that's an aft torpedo launcher in the center of the impulse engines? I think the artist is suggesting that the round "vent-hole" in the center of the impulse engines in the TOS Enterprise has always been an aft torpedo launcher. I don't know. :shrug:

    Looks like a docking port to me.

    There are two aft torpedo launchers, per the plans. They are right next to the impulse engines, on either side. Further in towards the docking port you have other stuff such as tractor beam emitters.
