Constitution Class Federation Starship – Re-imagined

Ever since Paramount released the very first glimpse of the U.S.S. Enterprise re-imagined by Ryan Church for the 2009 film Star Trek, I have been searching and searching for accurate images of the ship, even if they were unofficial. 3D modeler Tobias Richter, of The Light Works, was first to come even close to creating a decent 3d model of the starship, but you could tell that some of the details were off. Well, yesterday, much to my delight, I found the most recent release from Mr. Richter: His accurized 3d model of the re-imagined Enterprise. And it is awesome!  Now, if only we could find the schematic of the ship…


NX Class Starship – Refit

A number of months ago, Doug Drexler released a few images of what he indicated the NX-01 Enterprise may have looked like in the cancelled 5th season of Star Trek: Enterprise. He then went to indicate that a glorious CGI model was being crafted to appear in the 2011 Star Trek: Ships of the Line calendar. Having seen this, I am even more disappointed that Enterprise was cancelled so early. This is a great evolution for the ship, giving it the Secondary Hull to really tie it into the Enterprise family line. As I read the novels that take place after the end of the television series, this is how I picture Enterprise in her continuing adventures…

Starfleet Uniform Concept (Alpha)

(This a repost from my other blog: Hero Worship @

Before I discovered all of the various, and rather cool, designs of the Starfleet uniforms created for the MMO Star Trek Online (yes, I am a member) I began sketching out some Starfleet uniforms of my own. These were completed a few months ago. This design was inspired by the Time Travel uniform worn by Crewman Daniels from Star Trek: Enterprise, my favorite of all of the television series. You may notice the color variation of the 3rd uniform. I always felt there should be a separation of the Medical and Science divisions. Keeping the standard blue for science, it seemd appropriate to give medical the mint green color, in keeping with the old-fashioned green scrubs. These are meant to be similar to the jumpsuits worn in the Next Generation era.

NX Class Starship…

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.
