In a recent article about Star Trek starships, I posted a reply where I talked about how I like to design my own sometimes, and I shared a few of my designs.
People seemed to really like my designs, so I thought I'd share them all! I do also have a website upon which I host these (so I guess this is two articles today where I shamelessly self promote other websites of mine) but where as on that website I also write up fictional histories of each class and present a list of ships belonging to that class, here I will only present the schematics.
But more then just presenting my own designs, I invite my fellow O-Deckers to come up with designs of their own! I myself like to focus on the classic Trek film era, but your designs can be of any era! I like to use toolkits I found online to take parts to copy and paste together to look like actual schematics, and you can do that, too! (You don't need anything fancy, I do mine in Microsoft Paint!) Or, you can present your designs as simple, quick and dirty sketches that are just enough to get the point across! Because the main goal here is to have fun! Here are my designs:
The Kristiansen is a rare example of a ship where I took an already existing design and made my own version of it. This is my idea of, "What if the class of ship that the U.S.S. Grissom (as seen in Star Trek III) belonged to existed during the era of the TV series? What would it have looked like in a pre-refit configuration?"
NCC-1103, and a few of the other ships I will share, you may notice do not have either ship or class names yet. I am open to suggestions!
Looks like I hadn't even gotten around to putting a registry number on that last one, but according to the file name I gave it on my computer, it would be NCC-2752.
Well, those are all of my designs! Some I quite like and are proud of. Some... Well, I was just experimenting! (The Gemini is a good example of that!) Tell me what you think... and more importantly, lets see yours! And remember, have fun!
