I am currently making a recreation of Gabriel Koerner's enterprise. All that is left is making textures and weapons. I would appreciate any suggestions. For those who have never heard of it. Here is a link to a demonstration video.

Because it's too simple to show it in todays movies. By the way I heard that this one is not the real Enterprise used for Trek XI, but only a fanfic 3d model what was said to be the one used for the film.

The problem with the original Star Trek effects was not the model, it was the fact it was like the first time anybody had done space effects ever. They didn't know about using directional lighting and camera angles etc, all of that came a LOT later.

If you look at Star Trek New Voyages you will see that the original connie can look very nice with nothing more than modern camera techniques and lighting methods.

The original series however, did other constitution class ships by buying model kits that were being produced commercially (which is why you have registration numbers like 1017, its them moving the decals around to get new registration numbers!) and battle damage was done with a cigarette lighter.

Thanks for the support. I really appreciate it!

Also I would like to thank Starfox1701 for the textures. I have been looking for a picture of the bottom side of the enterprise forever! Finally I have what I need to texture it!

Also I am planning to make phasers for the ship as well, I might be able to modify the TMP phasers to make them blue, but I don't know where to find sound for them. The sound effects in the video has music over it.

The phaser sound of the 'Koernerprise', if I can call that ship like this, seems to be the same as the tachyon weapon from SFC3 according to this video : YouTube - Gabriel C.Koerner Enterprise
