During a period of offtime away from Star Trek Online, the mad geniuses over at Cryptic Studios decided to run a contest allowing the fans and gamers the chance to design the next Starship Enterprise. Talk about a bad time to take a break from the game. Oh well. The winner has been picked, and the Star Trek Online website is now presenting an expose’ on the evolution of this new starship from the creator’s oringinal sketch, winner Adam Ihle, to what I am hoping will be the final in-game model. From the first chapter we get to see the winning design sketch as well as the first rough “proof-of-conept” 3D model, giving us an idea of the basic overall shape.
