USS Enterprise NX-01
Starfleet NX Class NX 01 Star Trek: Enterprise.
About this creation
I should first point out that I don't particularly like the TV show "Enterprise," but I figured I should stop being a jerk and post my rendition of the NX-Class for those of you who do... So here we have it. From what I gather, this Enterprise NX-01 was the "first" starship to bear the name Enterprise (although it does not share the 1701 registry number, but oh well who cares). It was capable of warp 5 (there has been some controversy over whether this is measured in warp factor or in the TNG warp scale) but for the sake of time, I shall say it's measured in the TOS warp factor scale. The Enterprise NX-01 is supposed to be 225 meters from the deflector dish to the aft of the nacelles, making it 54 meters shorter than Kirk's Enterprise NCC-1701. As with all my Star Trek models, I tried to scale it correctly, so it has to be 3 studs less than my Enterprise NCC-1701, and it is actually 3.5 studs less long, and I'm satisfied with that degree of accuracy.

   3/4 aft view, another great shot of the "engineering-type" things.

   Fore shot, showing how the bussard collectors come just above the star ship's main hull. This is one of the features that I find refreshing about the NX, the fact that it complies with that rule.

   This 3/4 fore view has to be my favorite view of the NX, as it usually is my favorite view of other star ships.

   And... yes I used MS Paint to do that "cheesy" CGI, but it's still not too bad.

   Side view, note the sideways "barrels" that make up the nacelles. This is also a good shot showing the placement of the impulse engines.

   Above the ship, capturing the basic shape. Note that the saucer hull is NOT a perfect circle; this is because it is not in the show. In fact, according to every schematic I've seen, it's 10 to 15 meters wider than it is long.

really good work! in contrast to you the NX-class is my favourite star trek ship and you did a very good job here. I especially admire your effort to keep the scales accurate. Nevertheless there is one little flaw with this model regarding the impulse engines. NX-01 does not have red impulse engines like Enterprise D or E but they are dark grey.

Quoting Jonathan Archer It's pretty good, except starfleet vessels in the 2150s DO NOT have the USS prefix
I'm aware that the 'USS' prefix is not used prior to the creation of the UFP, however this website sorts my MOCs incorrectly if they are not named appropriately. It sorts alphabetically. If you know of a way to sort them manually, I would be very willing to change the name. But thanks for being observant.

Very nice job, just it's called Enterprise NX-01. There's no USS at the beginning. The United Federation of Planets didn't exist when Enterprise was built.

Well, yours is better than mine, I have to say. I'm gonna make another version of the Enterprise soon. I like the color coordination.
