Star Trek Exclusive: More Detailed Look At The Enterprise!

enterprise detail thumb2 Star Trek Exclusive: More Detailed Look At The Enterprise!We’ve all seen the first image of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 from the new Star Trek movie. It was a close shot of the top half of the saucer section of the ship, showing construction being done on it. It’s a cool shot, but is so tight that it’s hard to get a sense of the overall ship.

Well regular Screen Rant reader “DataSchmuck” used his mad Photoshop skills to assemble screen grabs from the recent Star Trek teaser trailer to put together a composite image that gives us a full-on top to bottom look at the saucer section.

There’s a medium-sized version below and you can click on the image below for a hi-res look at it as well.

That is a very cool image and I think it conveys the scale of the ship even better than the original picture did.

While some argue that Star Trek should continue to move forward, seeing a picture of the original NCC-1701 under construction gets me really fired up. The original crew is my favorite and I’m hoping that this movie somehow can capture the charm and chemistry of the original series.

Thanks again to “DataSchmuck” for creating it and sending it to us.

Star Trek opens on December 25th, 2008

  1. Nice job DataSchmuck! It does indeed show off the scale much better.

  2. AWESOME job on the picture, DataSchmuck!! Hope you don’t mind, but it’s now my new desktop!!! I am so psyched for this movie!!!!

  3. Andy, that’s the whole reason I made it! I’m glad you guys like it. I figure it will tide us over until some more revealing shots come from the official channels.

  4. Nice Job Dataschmuck!!

    This inhancement puts the size of nacelles in a better perspective than the original.
    :)

  5. Much to my own chagrin, I’m actually starting to get excited about this project.

  6. I am beginning to think those two big turbines have nothing to do with the Enterprise. Maybe they are somehow used to take the saucer section into orbit. They don’t look right in comparison to the saucer.

  7. When this baby’s finished it’s gonna scare the hell out of the Klingons!

  8. Even as old as I am now, I hope AMT or ERTL or whoever owns the contract now will put out an old-fashioned model kit. They are really screwing with the original in many ways, but I like the look of the front caps of the nacelles, which I have always suspected played some part in attitude and gyroscopic stability, as well as projecting some sort of guidance in the Warp environment to change the course of the ship at high speeds – something that is not easily achievable for a ship on a ballastic inertial line of travel through a vacuum.

    A little trivia: although unseen on TV, the original model’s hull lettering was surrounded by a small golden colored outline. Looks like they’ve copied that feature for this film.

    I don’t know … I still think this movie will be the sequel to LOST in space … a film where the actors were replaced with Hollywood A-list actors and the technologies were updated, but still the movie fell short of expectations. Sort of like what happened in 1979 to this very franchise, if I remember right.

    Based on what I’ve seen so far, this is entirely a movie preceeding the timeline of the original series, so I don’t think we’ll be seeing a lot of this ship with our crew on it, but perhaps we’ll see a little Robert T. April and far more Chris Pike on the Enterprise.
