So technically the enterprise was at Wolf 359... So this does fit.... Look what I just got from Rick Sternbach!!! The first image is of the Ent-D. I never knew that this was a docking port. I thighs it was just a clamp!

Oh, yeah. Those are docking ports. I have always understood that those connect the Enterprise-D's internal turbolift network to that of whatever starbase she is docked to. Looking at that drawing, I can see I must be wrong about that.

my thanks to Doug for posting those images of Enterprise J
it clearly illustrates a point I made (was it even in this forum?) that the diagram that were posted were incorrect mostly concerning the underside .

I am also keen to get glimpses inside this book of technical memos.
:D :thumbsup:

Yeah I jumped for joy when Doug posted the pics of the J. I've been wanting to see what the underside and back looked like for ages.

And for me, the NX will always be the ugliest design.

Well while I have not gotten anything more from Rick or Mike, but am still hopeful, these are now being used as the official CG Model for the Kyushu New Orleans class frigate by the "Official Starship Collection" endorsed by both the studio and the designers of the original models... ( the Ent-J is a great example as Doug finished it up specifically for the collection)... Well with out further ado:

Thanks to herocellector.com and Ben Robinson for sharing!!

so, I was re-reading Kratok's post regarding his 1/2500 Niagara build and read this:
Jason Abbadon wrote:I know Mike okuda still has the Springfield, but it's anyone's guess who has the GIANT Niagara model.
So I went and did this:

Nothing about the pod. He did mention he has some other images "in storage" and he may get around to looking for them.... as for the model my guess IF he has it, it's also in storage somewhere... I'll keep my fingers crossed but it may be awhile... (it only took 28 years for us to get these images!)

28 years?
