About this creation


Before the beauty shots, let’s have a look at the warp nacelles and support pylons.



Although these swept-back pylons appear thinner and weaker than the original series version, they are actually fairly thick in the middle and present longer attachment points. As usual they have plasma exhaust vents (inboard and outboard), and a crawl tube following the plasma conduit which provides access to the nacelles.



Except for the cutaway poster by David Kimble, we never get a glimpse into the interior of this style of warp engine, so much of what I have done here is conjectural. Nevertheless I have tried to follow established guidelines. For example, I have placed warp coils along the full length of the warp field spill ports (and only here); bussard collectors at the leading ends; and off-axis controllers aft. The fins at the ends of the nacelles hold RCS thrusters and intercoolers.



The new warp coils are similar in size to the coils of the TOS Enterprise. (I have based them loosely on this 3D design: https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/refit-1701-a-3d-model-full-interior.276201/page-5) There are nine sets of coils, matching the bridge engineering display which shows two sets of nine. Each coil has four mini-coils connected with a massive plasma injection unit in the middle.



The Bussard collector is an array of six smaller units. Behind that is the flux manipulator, a component that I always imagined as extruding through the hull on both sides.



Aft of the warp coils is the space matrix restoration assembly, the off-axis field controller, and the RCS thruster.



This style of nacelle is very sleek and art deco, and proved immensely popular not only with fans of Star Trek but apparently with Starfleet’s Advanced Starship Design bureau as well. We see them on the Miranda class (the Reliant) and its many variants (the Saratoga, Lantree, Bozeman, and Brattain), the Constellation class (U.S.S. Stargazer and Hathaway), and even the Sydney class (the Jenolan). We even see an upscaled version of these nacelles on the U.S.S. Curry, a kitbash seen during the Dominon War. We can also assume that they appear on refits of the older Saladin, Hermes, and Ptolemy classes (assuming any of them survived), but not the Dreadnought class, as those would have been decommissioned by the 2270s.



Getting these shots was spectacularly difficult. The piece counts for these partial shells are well over 60,000 and the file sizes exceed 3MB.











Total Piece Count: 338,349

Quoting Tim Higgins Misa, I am very impressed with your creation. I would like to have copies for my own files, however, most files are too large for my computer to process. is there a way I could get a deck by deck layout. I would be willing to pay for your time and effort. please get back to me asap. Thank you and please continue the great work!
Thanks Tim, if you check the folder you will find the ship broken down into sections of 2-4 decks each—that's why there's nine other WIP parts! Or if you just mean the blueprints proper, try here: http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars/enterprise-deck-plans.php

Quoting Robert Kimball 1) There's no way to build this IRL without a strong aluminum frame—consider that it is almost 6 metres long. 2) It would be possible to build portions of it but not the whole thing. 3) The other 9 parts show interior layouts which are not present in the final file, which could only be achieved for the purpose of screenshots by assembling the parts visible form a single POV. Let me put it this way. LDD can open a file of maybe 60,000 pieces, if your computer can handle it, but not a file of almost 350,000, which is the total with all interiors. It's just a CGI project. But do look at the other WIPs, to see the deck-by-deck layout.

Hello. Awesome design btw. Couple of questions 1) Did you actually make this or only make it in LDD 2) Is it even possible to actually make it? 3) Do all other 9 parts make up the total ship or are their differences in the other parts compared to the final file that has the entire ship I ask because, as others have said it's seemingly impossible to load the entire ship file. Amazing work. Really great.

Quoting Fell Skyhawk I've been trying to make a massive ship, smaller than minifig scale but it's a very large ship, in LDD but I keep having the program crash on me when it gets near 1/10th of this ship's amount of bricks. http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/444394 How do you get the ships so big without crashing? Have any tips or tricks?
Hi, well one thing that I found that works is to break up the model into smaller sections so that not everything is interconnected. I might have a model with 30-60,000 pieces total, but it's broken up into smaller parts anywhere from 500 to 2000 pieces. I do this by just leaving out some pins and hinges.

Sorry I missed this too - probably mistook it for another WIP (which I usually ignore!). This is a huge amount of work with amazing detailing. MOCpages image quality doesn't do this justice. Are these images available anywhere else at higher resolution? You might also want to consider LDraw over LDD. Whilst this may still be too impractical to render with a raytracer, the screenshot quality from LDView would surpass anything from LDD, and you'd probably find it copes a little better with huge models (as I of all people would know...)

Holy heck, Dude! This thing is massive! You must have some serious computer power to load the file. What would the dimensions be? Love all the techno-jargin by the way.

Thanks, Marty! Not sure what I'll finish next – but don't get me started on Discovery! The ship is meh, whatever, there's plenty of room for different designs, but otherwise the show is so far from canon while they insist it IS canon, I'm having flashbacks to 2009.
Quoting Marty Fields Congratulations on finishing the re-fit Enterprise. Outstanding work and research. What is next for you? Would you consider the new USS Discovery; do you like this controversial design?

This is just a piece of art! I am buiding my own Star Trek Ship (but buildable), and when I found your work some months ago I was just in shock! Thank you for sharing your work, that is amazing too! It would be very nice if you could share the lxf files, so I could continue to render pictures of your amazing work for my personal usage. Having 3D renders of THE Enterprise made in lego and furthermore canon is just an indispensable thing to have to complete the books and posters! To render I import your files in Stud.io then render in POV, a wellknown raytracer. With my system I can render up to 80 000 pieces in a row. Again thanks for sharing your amazing work!

Thanks! I haven't really considered the Sovereign yet, too may other things on my plate, but it would be much more achievable than the Galaxy due to its smaller size. Ideally though, a 300m ship is about as big as LDD will go in this scale without fog of war issues.
Quoting jd davis *sparks fly out of ears* Uhh, wow. This is amazing! Would it be too much to do a Sovereign Class next? I'm just kidding, but I'm sure whatever you do next will be awesome!

Quoting Bacon Tomato just mind boggling I VERY much enjoy the details. I wish I had time to thoroughly enjoy this. Also, I wish I could compensate you for your work. Your minifig Star Trek models should be in a museum.

Spectacular build! I am very happy to see the refit Enterprise. I personally love the redesign better than the original (gasp!) and you really nailed it in this model. The design of the engine nacelles is amazing. Great love and effort are evident in every detail. Congratulations on another amazing ship. It is truly worthy of the word epic in every sense!

Good to see an LDD model where one can not differentiate the individual bricks already, because of the immense size.
