    The NX always looks lean and mean in your drawings. I like how the pirates used those grippers to pull the hatch open. 😉

    That’s just beautiful, not just as a concept but also as a piece of art

    I just saw this as on Monday. Sci Fi showed “Expanse”, then “Anomoly” and a few more. I thought that was quite nice of them to line up their schedule so that I could see this final version in “action”! HA!

    My first thought was how nice one of the others would have looked, but this one is good, too. The simpler design must have made is easier to design the hatch and cost less to actually make the shots.

    I always like to see the NX!

    The grippers almost look like something trying to get out of there. How freaky would that have been??

    Nice work, John!!

    For a moment I though this was the ship form the season 2 ep “The Crossover”. (It the episode where a large ship bring in the Ent. a bit like the super tanker with the Russian, American and British Sub’s in “The Spy Who Loved Me.”)
