View Full Version : Spaceship: NCC1701 Enterprise A

Umm...I did this model of NCC1701 Enterprise A from Star Trek.... it's not very detailed but also the original was very simple :)

Any C&C?

i hate it, only because i hate trek...

from a non-trek-hating standpoint, i think the model is really good. the only thing i would work on is texturing and materials, and then work on the background stuff. from what limited knowledge i have of trek, it seems spot on other than materials and scenes.

good stuff!

heh, i also hate it (because i cant stand star trek ;) )!

but very good model :) :thumbsup:

Come on guys,

Why do I get the feeling some of the people here who say they hate trek are the people dressed up like storm troopers at Star Wars openings or elves at LOTR openings.


Someone who posted a message here wouldn't have a rendered ship from a sci-fi story on the front page of their website.


Just playing with you all. Someone had to defend the trek.

Excellent model. :beer:

Just a quick comment, the first picture makes the indentation on the bottom of the saucer section look too deep. The only reference I have is "Mr Scotts Guide to the Enterprise" and it's of the Enterprise from the first 3 movies - NCC-1701 (no A)

Looks nice!

I would make the textures 'dirtier' and maybe add a little more bump.

Also I would make the star texture smaller so they don't look so out of focus... a nice start :)

Nice models. My C&C will be the same as the others, just some work on the textures is needed. : )

i'm not really a treky either, but it's a nice model!

Regardless of the model, you need to work your camera settings a bit more. Right now your scaling looks all off.

The model looks okay but the light setup...ehhh. Meni ( wrote a small tut about space light setup.

Hmmm, even old star treck renderings from are cooler...May pay them a visit?
Have fun...Cya.
