Star Trek Constitution Reimagined Part 5 : Hangar Bay

This is my final work on the Enterprise and its Hangar bay and how I thing it could be, I still think this design can carry between 6 or 8 shuttles depending on the arrangement but this seems to work well

You could have 2 stationed in the main hangar, with the duel elevator/rotating (Turntable) deck kept clear ? or 3 in the main hangar with one on station ready for launch on the elevator/rotating (Turntable) etc

With 4 stored in the deck below the hangar , there is room to move them around and I imagine that they can easily be moved, antigrav units or something like that.

The lower fantail cut of the secondary hull prohibits the shuttle elevator going down more then one level,, so I have added two additional side elevators to the forward shuttle storage area (orange surface colour, one occupied by a shuttle), so perhaps if the captain wishes to have additional shuttles at his or her disposal, they can.. so lets say that the maximum class F shuttles this design can carry is 8.. possibly adding one or two workbees of the period.

I added 2 smaller cargo elevators to the forward wall, beyond that would be the Engineering sections, for those times Cargo Transporters cannot be used.. as we know these things happen 

Also I rendered 2 new images.. too get a idea of how the scale looks I included some 6ft crew personnel.

Star Trek Constitution Reimagined Part 4 Hangar

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

Star Trek Constitution Rebuild Part 3

I have at last finished the design, but it took me some time to return to it, over the last week I refined and reworked the design added features I like and giving some thought how the ship would be arranged internally.

The overall design is bigger then the original series version to fit my idea of its internal layout too.

USS ENTERPRISE NCC-1701
Constitution Class
Length: 1311’5 Feet
Width: 577’5 Feet
Height: 319’11 Feet
23 Decks.
Crew Complement 430.
7 Class F Shuttlecraft
Escape Pods 192
164 Primary Hull 4 persons per pod = 656 Crew
28 Secondary Hull 4 persons per pod = 128 Crew
Total Escape Pod Personnel Capacity = 768

Star Trek Constitution Rebuild Part 1

Its has been a few weeks since my last post, I was on my holidays, arrived back a few days ago, and as it takes me a few days to even return to 3D and remembering my plans for this design to find to my mild annoyance that I was not paying as much attention to the results as I should have, so I had to go in and clean up parts of the model, esp around the hangar bay.

I have placed all the windows and are arranged as I like them the most and I think retains a lot of the original look..

 

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: Space Void

Void in Space

Crown Nebula is by Casperium

A space anomaly appears in a sector close to Starbase18, The USS Enterprise is assigned to investigate, I remember one of James Blish novels,, Spock Must Die! where there is a barrier around Organia, while I was never really satisfied with the device, what if this is something like another version of the Doomsday Machine , the Enterprise is able to enter it finding the source.. not much but there it is.
