Hold onto your Captain’s chairs Star Trek fans. This is a special treat. This is a conceptual refit of the NX-01 starship in Star Trek Enterprise. It was designed by Doug Drexler and had the show gone on to a fifth season, this ship may have become a reality. The idea is that this ship is a bridge between the original NX-01 and the classic TOS Constitution class. And boy did Doug knock it out of the park! You can explore this ship from every possible angle below.
You know, I often complain that in its later years, Trek got lazy with many of its ship designs. Not all. There were still some neat ships, but at a certain point they started to feel really uninspired. The NX-01 is not bad for what it is. Now that I’ve seen this amazing starship, I really wish they had started that series with this ship. It is a real stunner. You can tell it was designed by a Trek veteran. It has all of the right visual cues that push my buttons as a long time fan. I’m gonna stop gushing now, but I fully admit that I am in love with this ship. Check it out. I’m gonna admire it some more myself.
Thomas Marrone did an amazing job creating this 3D model.
