I've seen. It's very Atolmian.
I wonder how long it will take for there to be a game model.

Didn't someone mention in an earlier thread that this model was in development? And I hope this model becomes reality sooner rather than later.

Knew it was just a matter of time. I wonder how trek series models would have evolved over the last 40 years had this been the original series Enterprise.

That is F***ing gorgeous! Don't get me wrong, TOS is great and the design of 1701 is a classic, but if they were to redo the series with this in it, then if for no other reason it would get my vote lol.

*grabs at model*

Thought this ship was great in the "ships of the line" book.

My only gripe is that the primary hull doesn't seem to be perfectly circular... but everything else about it makes me wants it bad!

I was working on a low poly version. She's at around 7K polies and I thought it was a bit high and needed to be refined. I was working off of an earlier untextured version of the model. That's why my textures don't match Gabe's. Looks like he might have changed a couple things on the mesh, as well. The bridge, for one thing (Which I really spent a lot of time on, unfortunately :'().
Anyway, here's the version that I was working on. I haven't done anything on it for a few months now.

It looks like he changed the impulse engine area as well, but that is an outstanding start Rod  :thumbsup:

Yeah, MP. There's a lot of minor changes all over it, actually. The Impulse style was rolled back a lot. The version in the pics you're showing is quite a bit "less styled". Way way beter a TOS feel. I'll definatley redo it like the one you got here. I was making it a BB for SFC because of the rear firing torps. Plus, scale wise, it looked a lot bigger than the TOS or TMP Enterprise. She looked more like 500 meters than 300 in the version I was working with. (Thus the name USS Athena.)

The 2ndry hull looks a whole heap like Atolms TMP FDN, which is the older design of the 2. Not saying that Gabe's isn't original. Just stating that Atolm never saw Gabe's before he designed his DN.

nice one rod. both of these seem to stem from that design from the ship of the line calendar that basicly had a heavily nx-ified tos connie.

I'm gonna do a total remake. I think that I can shave quite a lot of polies off for the latter design. I'm not going to throw this mesh away though. If there's a desire for 2 versions I can do as you suggest.
I would like to attempt an accurate low poly version of the final design, though. Just for my own personal satisfaction. Game res accurate, at least. 8)

Just curious to know if you have had a chance to work on your version of this beautiful model, Rod.

Who knows maybe JJ Abrams will use this ship design in Star Trek 11, due out on December 25, 2008.  They just started shooting on Wednesday, November 7, 2007 (4 days ago) through March 2008.  Leonard Nimoy will play old Spock and Zachary Quinto (Heroes' Sylar) will play young Spock, along with Bruce Greenwood as Captain Christopher Pike and many other familiar TOS characters.
