Enterprise episode #34 “The Communicator” offered the art depart a real fun story to work with. It called for an alien race that had flying technologies that were fairly primitive compared to Starfleet but pretty advanced from a general aviation point of view. The director was a fan of German jets from WWII and we all new which little jet had to provide the inspiration. The ME 262 was one Germany’s most feared invention,, while the rest of the world were flying prop jobs, Hitlers engineers upped their efforts and started to make rockets and jets. Despite the advancements it always depended on the pilot and not the aircraft when it came to who would win in a dog `

fight and many of these technologically advanced  beauties were shot done by your average old Propeller driven airplane. In designing this new type of alien aircraft The Me 262 was combined with an even earlier style of plane,,,the biplane ,   all this was thrown in the mixing bowl with a sprinkle of  sci fi and after it baked a while, this new little vehicle was ready to go. All together there were 4 or 5 concepts pitched for this plane and this one is the final approved piece. here are some of the drawings and a frame of the CG model created by Pierre  from Eden FX.

Here is a shot from Star Trek history!!! Three of the original series model makers stand by the 11 foot Enterprise on Providencia Ave. in Burbank california. What a great shot, especially having the hands that built the model standing by their beautiful craftsmanship.

Enterprise Episode #93 (Bound) To finish off the Gorn/Orion architectural arc, Here are the ship concepts for the massive Orion slave vessel. The ship is heavily armed and is decorated with a teeth and alien tattoos. The following sketches lead up to the final approved art and color schemes. This was almost the end of Enterprise and having Manny as the driving force behind the fourth season brought new life to the series and made the final season a real treat to be a part of. besides the Zindi, these were among my favorites of new alien ships.
