I have finished my rework/rebooted Constitution class, as of today I am finished other designs I want to work on, just to recap, this is larger then the official scale of the Connie, I had to enlarge it to address so many issues, this is 1311.5 ft long or 399.7 meters, I posted basic image here before, for these I used Ali Ries wonderful and scenic space art with permission for these WIP images..
I hope you like the design.
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.

Pathfinder / Light-speed Project rises again
I am continuing to work on the Pathfinder design and with the recent fall out over Star Trek Fan-films and restrictions I am taking a long hiatus from Star Trek Universe, not as some fans seem to decry a boycott of CBS / Paramount.. ridiculous response, its fair to say that the new guild-lines for Star Trek fan-films are draconian in many ways.
The fault lies solely at the Axanar production lead, no one else has so blatantly broken the bounds of Fan film making.. making money from someone else Intellectual Property and copy right, having paid himself (by his own admission) $38.000 dollars (look it up its easy to find) and I read his girlfriend also was paid.
Anyway I have grown tired of all the BS and am looking for a break from all Star Trek groups and returning to my own designs and perhaps some TOS Battlestar Galactica… this is a personal favourite second to Star Trek. I loved its scope and like all modern ideas finds at its core older stories or a mix of them from history.
Here is my latest WIP for the Pathfinder design,, am hoping to do a lot more with this in the months ahead..
Also I have decided to close my Facebook page (not the personal one) as it was to focused on likes and dislikes and demographics that I could careless about..
Thanks for viewing
I have made some minor changes to the design, added temporary patches NASA, ESA, etc, hatches and I changed the ships name to Sagan after Carl Sagan and E.S.S. is simply Earth Space Ship etc
