I have a new mesh that I'm texturing ATM. I'm gonna try real hard for Christmas release, if I can get permission from GK.

Well, it's at a really unflattering point in the texturing right now. I'll get a little further along and post some pics.

Remember the axiom of big government bureaucrats: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. When, finally, under the crushing weight of taxes and regulation, it stops moving, subsidize it.

I have that ship as my desktop.. It Rocks..

I thought the ' :P ' would be enough to let everyone know that I was foolin' around. Guess not...  ::)

Well, I haven't managed to stick to any timetable on this. Here's some WIP pics. It's an all new mesh made from MP's reference pics.. Not the one I had shown earlier. I believe that the reference pics were stretched. I don't think it was supposed to have an oblong saucer. So, I corrected them and then made the mesh. I'm going to concentrate on her a bit more, promise. I did the nacelle textures today. I'll probably work a bit on the pylons tonight as well.

Now , if there was ever a model that made me wanna kitbash something, this is it.

Truth be told, I also started this mesh several weeks ago, but was dissatisfied with my end result ... and I wanted to do Saladin and Federation Class ships based on this design. (I may yet do that ... unless someone else likes that idea and steps to the plate ... because speaking of plates, mine's full ... lol)

But ... this ... this is way better. Can't wait to make her my fcx!

lol... I like her too, but she wouldn't be a FCX.. this ship is for the new Star Trek XI movie coming out in 2008 that shows a new Kirk.. the ship is actuall the NCC-1701

Check out the information about the new movie at http://www.startrek.com/startrek/view/series/MOV/011/index.html

or you can watch trailers and fan made clips at YouTube. Check out the fly by and pahser firing of it.
This is Fan Created though, so the phasers may not be accurate.. but check other links on site.

The ship I guess is suppose (I THINK) to be between TOS and Motion Picture.. she is the NCC-1701 but Pre- Enterprise Class Refit in Motion Picture..

an FCX is post NCC-1701-B and Pre NCC- 170-1-C..

But I agree in OP it would look cool as an FCX.. but the role would be more suited to FCA(x) according to timeline.

The render above is a bit different is design in the nacells and in the secondary hull.. but it is very close to the Movie XI version of the ship.

However Kudos on the design.. she looks fantastic.. keep up the good work !!!!!!!!!!!!

Has this design actually been declared the "next" Enterprise? I know it's been rumored to be, but I didn't know it was confirmed. If so, I'll have to do alternate regs. as well.

It's supposed to be a pre-TOS design, isn't it? The timeline for the movie is before TOS, anyway.

I'm going to slot it in as the FBB, in my game. Judging from the size of the windows on the saucer this ship is larger than the original NCC-1701 by a fairly good amount. There's also the rear firing torps. I just thought she fit as a FBB in game. I could do 2 different HPs, if people want more options though.

Thanks for the encouragement, all. :)

Officially, no..

but the Model is from the Directors CGI bin.. the actual movies on YouTube are fan created..

It is a major possibility that she will be the "new" TOS enterprise.. but not 100% sure..  the Director also had 4 other models including the reimaged TOS Enterprise from the remastered DVD's...

This one used in Fan Films seems to be the most accepted since the Director is looking for FAN feedback while making the movie...

Anyhow, I would have to say I'm about 80% sure that they will use this ship in the Movie.. but 20% of me says they will use the TOS Remastered version..

Are they really going to adopt this for the movie?

Just as background for anyone that might not know, this ship was designed by Gabriel Koerner specifically for the 2007 Star Trek Ships of the Line calender.

I, for one, would love to see you put the same love into that project you are putting into your TNG Connie, AsYlUm.

F9thCenturus  ... the rubber chicken ... lol ... too funny! (makes me think of that ATHF episode on adult swim with the witch doctor ..." Arise, chicken, arise ... chicken arise ...") The mental picture I have is priceless, worthy of a photoshopping ... lol!
