I have retouch the Drydock and moved the C&C from the top of the dock to the portside of the dock, just to have a Asymmetrical design.
Another rendering using my Enterprise model and GrahamTG art as the setting, birth of a star perhaps, good enough title as any.
my appreciation to Graham Gazzard aka GrahamTG who makes his artwork available for us modellers who sometime get around to rendering..
I could not help it, after seen a beautiful space scene by a friend GrahamTG I had to render with my reboot / re-imagined design..
Its been a while since my last post with my rebooted or reworked Enterprise but also my PC had another fit and I was compelled to reinstall Windows, by slow steps I have reinstalled Lightwave at the last and finished the few details I had to work out on the rebooted constitution class.
I had to adjust the hangar deck height. it was too low for the deck plan I was using, I also worked out the gallery observation area and its corridor to the control booth though I did not build the corridor itself..
I never found credit to the shuttle model builder, no readme was included in the file.
The shuttle model builder is Aggi from Foundation3d
“Edge of the Federation”
I dusted of my U.S.S. Enterprise model and with a nice background image by dadrian on deviantart. A much needed break from my own designing, my appreciation for concept artists has grown to such heights, how the likes of Syd Mead, Doug Drexler, Rick Sternbach, do it I cannot say.. But I applaud their work all the more.
Someone rightly pointed out too me, that I neglected to include the USS Exeter in the other posted lists, so I have “again” revised this omission and I have added a little more information I checked out.
I cannot take any credit for the research that was done by others who I have listed the main sources I found in a few Star Trek books and websites..
But I will re-post here. click on too enlarge the image they are large

Individuals whose tireless research and contributions to Star Treks expanded universe gives us much to enjoy and in my case less eye strain and a headache
Also my approach for selecting the additional names and Registry’s is that it should appear in the original list of name suggested by D.C. Fontana and Bob Justman, also Greg Jein and Franz Joseph and official canon where possible.. but mainly to be included in the original Fontana and Justman suggestions. but if I could make changes I would rename the
VALIANT and MERRIMAC going back Fontana / Justman suggestion’s.. or go beyond that and add Amagi, Europa, Forrestal, Hermes, Searcher(?), or one I like Illustrious.
D.C. Fontana’s proposal 8 August 1967
- El Dorado
(destroyed in “Doomsday Machine.” Presume she would be replaced by Starfleet)
(mentioned as destroyed in “Obsession”)
- Bonhomme Richard
- Monitor or Merrimac,
depending upon your loyalties
(“bird” [note: in Japanese])
(“lion” [note: in Hebrew])
(“warrior” [note: in German])
Bob Justman proposal 9 August 1967
Definitive list as utilized at the start of TOS Season2
I mostly just renders to show of designs. but I was goofing around with this scene and added stars and planet Epsilon III by David cgc and this was the result .. I liked it and decided to post
Starbase 13 was a Federation Starbase located on the edge of the Federation Phalanx, It also was the destination in the Star Trek Novel Enterprise: The First Adventure It was not trying to create a real space scene as I said, I was just playing with the scene and the result was something I liked.
