    hey John, check this out… way back in March 2009 you wrote…

    I love seeing the styles change from decade to decade. I would so love to see an extravagant original Enterprise fly in today’s SCI FI world!!!

    Definition of EXTRAVAGANT
    a : exceeding the limits of reason or necessity
    b : lacking in moderation, balance, and restraint
    c : extremely or excessively elaborate
    d: spending much more than necessary
    e: extremely or unreasonably high in price

    – Looks like this could be “close” to what you were looking for…

    1701 Prime Alternative: http://www.mediafire.com/file/54wybly9vowxxe3/PrimeAlternative_HD.wmv
    Link is a CG early internal lighting “Test” vid (dated May 2010) acquired from a FX studio shared file site – According to hundreds of stored image files, CGi model maps and emails found on this shared file site;
    The 1701 Prime Alternative is a state of the art Three foot SFX Physical Model, built by a former veteran ILM model builder over the last 2 1/2 years and was designed* by two ST fanboys, one in Los Angeles CA and one in Fl ; by borrowing* design cues from all the Big Es + Kelvin and JJprise, and then infused them into the great Matt Jeffries original design architecture—barring of course the only major change to the classic silhouette being the struts and their attachments

    To me, the design language of this ship looks more like it followed the NX01 and the Kelvin—while at the same time holding on to all the love we have for the TOSE; while remaining a possible real-time predecessor to the more refined TMPE. And, looking at this ship, I think it could have worked for the 2009 reboot— but maybe that’s just me!

    I downloaded tons of files, images, Orthos and wallpapers of this 1701 Prime Alternative ship… and hope to see the completed Phy Model somewhere on the web or a Con… as there are no photos of the Phy Mod on the share file site … But, if you want to see more of the images I have downloaded… just say the word!

    BTW – same studio files also show listed a 14” Prime Alternative Class- F shuttlecraft Physical Model being built (where your name has been credited as “inspired by”…) along with an unbelievably cool looking exhibition base case and pedestal, embedded with active video screens, for this Big E being built as well
    — this build project must have cost someone big $$$$$$$$

    Moving is rough man……especially twice in such a short span of time. Hope all is well and it goes painlessly!

    This is sort of a random question, but I wasn’t sure where else to ask – is there any possibility of releasing more shots from the Padme shoot you did with Penny Von Luck? I’ve seen three or four photos online from that, & she looks absolutely stunning there.
