Star Trek Enterprise 1701 Lifeboat IRL
A simple MOC of a non-canon lifeboat.
About this creation


A small, single-occupant lifeboat for the Constitution II class, aka the Enterprise refit.



In addition to 8 small RCS thrusters there are two single-use main thrusters to take the pod to beyond a minimum blast radius, should the ship suffer a core breach.



The interior features life support, a viewport, control panels, and the all-too-necessary waste management.







Although we never see them on-screen, hatches for the Enterprise's lifeboats are seen in the cargo bay in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.



Based on this, artist Shane Johnson created a plausible single-occupant escape pod (as seen in Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise). Unlike later mulit-occupant pods there is no visible hatch on the hull exterior.



Technically the Constitution class was meant to use the saucer section as a lifeboat, which had a separation feature (also never seen on-screen, but it did make it to the storyboard stage).



Thank you and LLAP!

Quoting Chris Gay Design looks great. All that's missing in my opinion, is a 2x2 inverted slope brick with computer monitor print on it to go on the ceiling of the pod facing the pilot, so would match what's in the blueprint. Overall, nicely done.
There is actually a ceiling console.
