Thanks to Doug Drexler, these hi-res images show details of the NX Class starship up close and personal. Make sure to visit his blog , the Drex-Files @ http://drexfiles.wordpress.com/…
Here await the glorious renders that were made available by Polar Lights when they released their highly detailed model kit of the Starship Enterprise NX-01. I know a lot of fans complained about this design, dubbing it the “Akira-prise” becuase of its obvious similarities to the Akira-Class starship that first appeared in Star Trek: First Contact, but I always felt the design was very fitting for the concept of the show. The level of detail in this CGI model is outstanding.
These last couple of images are ship system displays for our Pioneer Class starship. Again, these were heavily influenced by the artwork that appears in Mr. Scott’s Guide to the Enterprise.
This is the inboard schematic that we designed for the Federation Starship Pioneer Class, as seen in the previous post. This was completed using an old version of Photoshop, and a lot of reference to Mr. Scott’s Guide to the Enterprise.
This is the first starship I designed t the level of detailed schematics: The Pioneer Class. Meant to be an exploration cruiser in the time period between Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Motion Picture, you can see some of the similarities she shares with the refit Consitution Class. Overall, I was very pleased with the design, except for the warp nacelles, they need a little work.
