Star Trek USS Enterprise Reimagined Refit Phase-II

Image

This is my version of the Enterprise Refit Phase II, not so much a new ship as it’s based directly on my older reimagined Constitution class, the main changes are the warp engines and changes to the secondary hull interior and deflector dish area only and the hangar deck and so on a tweak here and there for good measure.
I included a redesigned hangar deck and cargo area, inspired by Star Trek The Motion Picture Refit Enterprise. with 2 independent elevators to move them down to the shuttle storage and cargo area, I might add more details to this area later.

Star Trek ART

Changing the look of my blog again, I am not very good at keeping this going, at least with a lot of word play. just WIPs and Renders. so now only finished work will be shared and very little if any reading.

So on to some art,

Star Trek Space Dock 2020

Happy New Year 2020

Slowly returning to normal after the holiday break, and now after a time away from CGI getting my mind back into gear for it. so I took the reimagined Enterprise etc for another render.

I think most fan like the spacedock scene in STTMP, I know I do.

Star Trek Drydock

Latest rendering with my reimagined Constitution design, I have made additions to the fleet since my last post.

So on to rendering, I reworked these images and will get to the other designs in the future like the Reliant and Loknar etc.

Star Trek Shuttle Craft Re-imagined

Image

For my Re-imagined Constitution Class to finish this project I worked out the maximum amount of shuttles is 8 if the Captain wishes to have a full complement, unless he or she might decide on less.
I used the names of those scientists I find interesting for the other shuttles not otherwise having appeared or mentioned in Star Trek.

Name / Episode or Source
Aristarchus / Aristarchus of Samos
Columbus * / The Galileo Seven
Copernicus * / (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)
Kepler / Johannes Kepler
Huygens / Christiaan Huygens
Einstein * / Metamorphosis (updated VFX)
Galileo * / The Galileo Seven
Sagan / Carl Sagan

Using this older WIP of the hangar and cargo area to help illustrate, 2 Shuttles could be parked for use in the landing bay launch receiving area, in the deck below reached by the turntable / elevator there is room for 4 shuttles to be stored, then on the lower deck, the main cargo area there is space for 2 more shuttles adding to 8 shuttles.

This could be down to what the Captain wants, might decided on having 4 or 6 is more cargo space is what is needed.

Star Trek Art and Asteroids

This cover art has always inspired me.

The Art of Star Trek

It was a collaborative effort; Production Illustrator Jim Martin designed the art, executing it in a series of progressive pencil sketches. The art was subsequently turned over to freelancer Mikido Uesugi and John Knoll.



Here is my version again using GrahamTG space art and Asteroids..

Reimagined Constitution Class

Image

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..

 

 

Star Trek: Renders

Well now I have been busy, rendering yes and some more Star Trek using some background art by Ali Ries,  GrahamTG and dadrian to bring some energy into them, normally I don’t do action type renders but here for the first time with Phasers firing all or Klingon torpedoes evading,, 99% in Lightwave and a tiny tweaking in Photoshop..

I am going back to doing my own reimagined constitution class this week and I am going if time permits some other designs from the federation moving on to Klingons for the first time since I worked on the bridge or corridors a few years ago.

That should get star trek out of my system for a while, so I have decided to attempt the Battlestar Galactica with my approach to its detailing and arrangement.

Mixed in with some of my own designs.. stay tuned for the WIPs (Work in Progress)

I think that all for now,, … … yes that it..

Oh wait There is a possibility that 3DGladiators will be making a return.
