Also, going to be redoing the rest of the canon ship designs based on this design.
But yeah, by all means. I look forward to seeing what you do with it, I'm always wanting to see any and all new Trek ships.
did u draw these ship ?
if so if I send u pitcher of a model I madefrom star trek model ship could u draw it
As for the design itself, I don't mind the curved nacelle pylons because I like to assume that futuristic technology may be different from that of what we know today and that the stresses could be in places we couldn't even assume.
As a fellow designer (though I tend to do it by hand rather than draw it out) have you ever tried designing your own Trek ship without using any parts from canon Trek? It's an interesting design challenge if you're looking for one.
For me, its not about the JJ-Enterprise looking too different, its the fact that the design feels so unbalanced. The saucer is HUGE, yet the hull is incredibly thin. The nacelles (which are my favorite part) are large like the saucer, but the inward arching pylons pull them WAY too close together....
Look at it this way, Enterprise used to look like a Stetson on a well-built cowboy... and now it looks like a Sombrero on a short skinny white-boy... I hate to keep using the word "unbalanced" but that's exactly it.
More important than which is better than the other though, Congrats man. It can not have been easy to build this design and you deserve major kudos for making it look so fantastic! She's a major beaut
... Who am I kidding, IT'S FREAKIN' AWESOME!! 8D
Oh well, statement still stands, THIS Enterprise looks so much better than the new movie one (either called the JJprise, or the iPrise)
I blame channels like G4 (which I watch constantly), it's due to them that we need a SUPER TECHNO LOOKING SHIP to get anyone interested. But that's fine by me. It's supposed to be 200 years from now, technology will VASTLY change by then.
I will say, though, I like the new warp nacelles. They have a cool shape. I wish the pylons didn't arc inward though.
I mean, I wouldn't mind if it were this one, but I still like the new one.
Hense why I want to see both in Star Trek Legacy.
I cant wait to see what JJ does with Trek. I consider myself a hardcore fan (one of the only ones who liked every series and movie), and I am moderately excited about this new film.
And another touch I liked, on a flyby video I saw of it, the warp coils actually rotate, and are visible through the transparency on top of the nacelles. Alternating rotation, coinciding with the rotating lights on the ramscoops (a nod to the original series ship). I guess JJ thought this was too much like the original, which I kinda understand in his case.
i want a model of this version!
3d or kit!
i thinked it was the new movie's enterprise this year
i use Anim8or and Blender (3DS files)
It looks good. Your attention to detail is executed quite well. Kudos.
