starship mish mash from the series, Enterprise!!!


It’s been a while since I have gotten anything Star Trek up, so here is a high res of the Xindi cargo ship that later turns into Degra’s ship.  A low res was posted a while back, and with this one you get a better view of all the little details.  Next are a variety of Xindi probes, and just like grade school, the chosen version would get a star and happy face drawn next to it, HAAAA!  It’s followed by a little ship from episode #37 “Precious Cargo”; I loved when we would get the opportunity to come up with ships out of the ordinary, and this one was a fav to work on!!!  A real frumpy ship with a real gritty slice of external piping and details.  Finally comes the variations of what would be the new Andorian battle ship.  The 4 versions covered a broad gammut of styles, and in the end the upper left idea was chosen and nicknamed the Andorlactica because of it’s Battlestar Galactica (1970’s) front end resemblance!!!  So with that, thanks for the fun week and all the fine comments about all the fun pin up stuff!!!  Have a great Weekend and catch up with things promised to post on Monday!

    Hi John – Happy Friday! All those Andorian ship designs are great but the “Andorlactica” is my favorite. I also really like your take on that cargo hauler – nice to see the variation from traditional Federation designs.

    Thanks for taking the time to post these great pictures – I’ve been missing my regular dose of Eaves Star Trek art! I hope all is well!

    Have a good weekend,
    Richard

    I always enjoy seeing that cargo/Degra’s ship! It looks like it’s either already moving fast or poised to just take off with a good dose of evilness thrown in…great!! I also think any of the Andorian ideas would have been good. 🙂 They picked the less fluid, pointy Xindi probe, and I always tend to like curvy better, but seeing how each species is different the probe could have been any of those and worked great…super job!!

    Precious Cargo is on my DVR, since that’s about where Syfy is with the series right now…I’ll be checking this one out later today! That’s some beefy, awsome cargo hauler there!! 😀

    Degra’s ship is definitely a favorite of mine from the series. I also love the Andorian Battlecruiser. Inever noticed the Galactica resemblance before now, though. Which is odd considering how much I love Galactica.

    Yeehaw! Been missing the Star Trek updates. Thanks for posting this up!

    Always loved the Andorian ships, too. They were, to me, one of the most absolutely perfect designs in the series — cool-looking, somehow both an appropriate ship for a good guy and a bad guy, and believable as an ancestor to 23rd-century stuff. Kudos! (do people still say that?)

      Syd, you’re people and you say that, right? 🙂 I like the word but don’t know where it came from…what’s a kudo? I’ll make it a point to use it today. 😉

    I love the bottom left Andorian ship, that looks dangerous, armed and slick.
    thanks for sharing.

    I’ve always been partial to Degra’s ship, its just got a flare about it and I really enjoyed enterprise for all the frieghters that appeared because they all felt so real and beleavable, something some ships in Trek fail to attain.

    As for the Andorian ships, I think the one that got chosen was definatly the best one to pick. The lower left one hasa very Sona’ish feel to it and the upper right hasa slight Romulan feel to it, which I think would of caused some confusion for some fans. I like the lower right one, its definatly alian enough, I think if the upper front nacelle got removed and moaybe the lower one, that it could make a good Andorian shuttle or something.

    Great to see you posting again John, you seem to be pretty busy these days, which is a good thing ofcourse! .-)

    Among the Andorian designs I really like the one at top right. I actually think it looks a bit Vulcan, could have maybe worked well as some sort of experimental Vulcan warp ship. I agree the final choice for the Andorian cruiser was best, though. It’s a cool, powerful looking ship and you can see how its design would help contribute to Starfleet designs in the future.

    Nice to see the Andorian ship designs. Would love to see them utilized further – perhaps in some original art.
