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 / reimagined 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.

Star Trek USS Aries “Oberth Class”

Resurrected my Oberth class mesh, USS Aries NCC-345 (No textures) and Ali Ries super nebula art, Crown Nebula .. I never went further with this as the fan film it was made for never moved beyond the start-up phase.

Star Trek “Its a Klingon D7”

Star Trek “Its a Klingon D7”

USS Enterprise by Me, Klingon D7 by Prologic9 and the Background by GrahamTG . it’s a fun break from modelling to just render of a few images.. not in my comfort zone, really stretching now.. but thanks to the other artist for providing these resources

Constitution-Class Registry Revisited 2

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

Source list
*. The Making of Star Trek, by Stephen E. Whitfield & Gene Roddenberry  1968
*. The Case of Jonathan Doe Starship by Gregory Jein April 1975
*. Star Trek Star Fleet Technical Manual by Franz Joseph:
*. Federation Ship Recognition Manual: FASA
*. Fan Optional build order
*. Paramount/CBS Canon list: Star Trek Encyclopedia
Debbie Mirek, Michael & Denise Okuda

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

D.C. Fontana
Bob Justman
Greg Jein
Ruth Berman
Debbie Mirek
Michael Okuda
Doug Drexler
Rich Sternbach
Franz Joseph
Stephen Whitfield
Bjo Trimble

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 AmagiEuropa, Forrestal, Hermes, Searcher(?), or one I like Illustrious.
