Only because a refurbished Battlestar Galactica looks totally freakin AWESOME, it does not mean that this applies to the USS Enterprise NCC-1701!

I thought with the so called Trek-Series around the Akiraprize it wont get any worse, but that.... :roll:

Hi Zman,

I think that all is a very good work of art. The artist must be an excellent master of his trade.
Seeing something like that on screen would be quiet something.

If you compare it to the looks of ENTERPRISE it does not look to metallic at all.
Fits in well to the standard set in this show.


Compared to the old TOS - Version from the 1966 it looks a bit to advanced to the ship shown there.
But we live in 2006 an expect a better quality than in those days

It looks to me like an intermediate step to the upgraded version shown in TMP. At least in some parts of the design.
Reason:
Especially the connecting neck between saucer an hull of the ship is a bit to “modern” it has some design elements that even showed up later in the Ambassador – Class

The photon tubes where located in the lower part of the saucer in the TOS era. At the current location they are wrong for a pre TOS ship.

But the rest of the design is good for a pre TOS ship


The shuttle is very good. I think that there is nothing that will not go for pre TOS as it is.

They are absolutely brilliant make-overs of the original ships and I have no doubt that if the creators had the capabilities, this is what they would have made!!

I've no doubt the purists will have issues with them but I think they are bloody fantastic!! :D

Would love a 1280 x 1024 version of that pic for my desktop wallpaper!!! :wink:

Apparently this guy has done work for Enterprise and the revisioned BSG. http://gabekoerner.com/fx/index.htm

And if you look at the bottom of the gallery page he's also designed a Nova/Premie inspired ship aswell.

Here are some more pics. http://gabekoerner.com/ent/entview_top.jpg
