Here was a fun ship from the Suliban race, and it was seen in Enterprise episode #26 entitled “Shock Wave”. The Suliban were a strange race and they were to be so prominent in the new series, but by season 2 they had pretty much faded away. Amongst all the ships that had to be drawn for the series, the Suliban were the hardest to get concepts signed off…it still brings back a lot of dizziness just thinking about all the billions of drawings it took to get just a handful of ships through those narrow approval doors. This one was one of the last ships to be drawn and the heat and tension had let up, so it went through on a single pass!!!! WOOO HOOO! And it was one of my favs as far as their ships went.
In addition, there had to be a hidden base and, looking at Monument Valley in Northern Arizona for inspiration, the base became a high offensive location atop a spire of rock overlooking the vast landscape. Eden VFX work shined brightly on this episode, and as always the work Rob and the gang put out was beyond awesome. So with that, have a great weekend everyone, and thanks for all the comments and for putting up with the loads of pin up pictures!!!
