About this creation
This is my UPDATED original Enterprise from Star Trek TOS. I began this model about two years ago and have not gotten around to updating it for two years because i was too lazy. As a side note, the kind of whacked color scheme on the saucer section was done 100% intentionally. It's supposed to be some sort of really strong metal, binding the saucer to the engineering section... Mainly because in all my experiences with star trek-type ships the engineering-saucer connector neck has been too weak to be believable.

For example in ST2: The Wrath of Khan, that whole crisis with the ship getting blasted by the Reliant's phasers in the engineering section, killing many people, would and could have been avoided by building the exterior of the ship out of some "ultra-strong, virtually-indestructible" metal. I'm thinking some sort of tetraburnium alloy, personally. But that's just me.









Here is a fore shot, reminiscent of many Star Trek TOS episodes. Please note that the navigational deflector is NOT as it was in the show. This is because i like blue better than brown (and i don't have any brown pieces so there we have it).









Aft, lower three-quarters. Beautiful TOS memories. Note the new and improved nacelle pylons, now constructed from the Star Wars "light saber" type pieces.









Above, revealing my scaling of engines to the saucer. I know they look a little thin, but i measured it and consulted my Star Trek Encyclopedia; it turns out the thickness of the engines is about (1cm / 20) off of what it should be... There is obviously no LEGO piece that is (1cm / 20) thicker, so I stayed with the thin engines instead of making them too bulky. Anyways, it makes the ship look more streamlined.
