Still getting it out of my system...

Some things get stuck in your head and you need to let them out. I've been doing a lot of thinking about Star Trek lately, mostly on the gaming side, and this is where I'm at today. Been tinkering with Federation Commander and rereading my old FASA Trek books, along with the TOS Last Unicorn version.

The thing that always annoyed me about the Enterprise was just the odd shapes the ship has. That saucer with it's odd curves and just tinkering with perspectives to get the nacelles to look right. I'm not saying I have, but this is the ship that showed up in my notebooks most often in grade school.


  1. I read a lot of blogs and sometimes get lost which one is which. I came to this one and thought 'hey, cool TOS Enterprise wonder were they got that'. Then reading I remembered, 'oh yeah, this is artist dude's blog, he drew that!'

    Nice drawing. Can we look forward to a D7 in the future?

  2. Maybe. Nothing harder to draw than Federation ships than Klingon ships, though. Interesting design, but what were they thinking??
    They always looked like turtles wearing hats to me.

  3. The Klingon ships always looked more aerodynamic than the Enterprise to me but, I've heard, ya don't need aerodynamics in space?
