Class B Freighter
The design was based on early conceptual art for the original series USS Enterprise.
The design is a mixed up combination of kit bashed Klingon
Battlecruiser and Romulan Bird of Prey. You are actually looking
at a model that I built, photographed, and then digitally painted.
You ought to see the Romulan I made out of the other parts!
|The design is completely my own conjecture of what the reptillian Gorn Starship might have looked like if it had been featured on that show.|
Orion Scout Ship
|In the episode "Journey to Bable" the Enterprise was attacked by a rogue starship that turned out to be a small Orion Scout sized spacecraft. In the original TV series the vessel was depicted as a mysterious collection of spinning lights. I had to think about the design of a ship that would produce that effect. In this concept, the lights are the power nacells and they are afixed to a rotating hub aft of the crew compartment.|
|The design of this one is completely my own conjecture of what a small transport would have looked like if it had been featured on that show. We never saw it on the original televised show looking better than a smudge of light.|
|The design is faithful to the model used in the original series TV show. Yes, it looks a LOT like the Tholian ships. The production levels on the original Star Trek were not very good.|
