This is first of many such attempts we'll see at this ship, the ST:XI version of Kirk's Constitution Class USS Enterprise. While it's certainly a good start, it's not quite perfect. The nacelles and their supports aren't quite right, the textures are combined from three separate sources (and none of them have quite the right shading), and the parts of this ship we have yet to see in any meaningful way (notably the shuttlebay) are almost detail-free. But the as-yet-unknown modder Sin87 does a fairly good job of trying to capture the spirit of the new design.
One of the pitfalls of making this ship, at the present time, is the obvious lack of any 3D models or even high-res screencaps from which to proceed. That doesn't seem to stop several of our modders who are working on the same set of screencaps and pictures we've seen to date, and their enthusiasm for rendering every last canon design --including this one-- is admirable. Hopefully it's only a matter of time before a newer version of this, with corrections made thanks to the constructive criticism of this community and comments in the section below, is made available here for Armada.
Definitely worth a download.

That file canbe found here. http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/Fca_NCC1701_scheme;19982 DISCRIPTION *********** Here's the brand new version of the Constitution class that is set to appear in J.J. Abrams re-imagined Star Trek. I wasn’t originally going to build & released as the new Enterprise, but as her class' predecessor. When the second trailer was released last week I noticed that my design ideas such as the secondary hull stretching out were almost identical to the new Enterprise so I figured why make my original when I could make a few small changes & have the new beauty. As a side bonus I can later take elements from here or a newer version & add them to that model for continuity. Some of the changes I made were changing the TOS nacelles to newer Trek XI versions & changing the secondary hull from a more Daedalus class that appears to be a design super sized airlock at the aft for docking to space stations. Though I believe that the thrusters on the back of the saucer & the aft shuttle bay are the same model as the TOS version. I’ve left the TOS thrusters as they were already part of the original model, but as for the shuttle bay it's very basic curve less area as I think it's a little smaller in the new version than the big 3-4 deck beast of TOS & TMP. I won't be changing the aft hull until more images become available as it would be a waste of time trying to identify small details that that for now are not seen & as such would most likely to be wrong & ultimately end up having to be changed or even removed for a totally new section. I will most likely release a modified version of the original ship & an updated version of this Enterprise when there's more reference material available to work from. INSTALLATION ************ 1. UnZip the file into your Armada 2 main directory 2. Open your gui_global.spr in the misc folder and scroll down to where is says # Federation buildbuttons @reference=128 copy this right below the "@reference=128" line b_hf1701XI gbYoungKirk 0 0 128 128 b_fCstit1XI gbfCstit1XI 0 0 128 128 then find the line "@reference=256" & copy this right below it # Federation wireframes @reference=256 then right below copy & paste this right below it hf1701XIw1 whf1701XI 0 0 256 256 hf1701XIw2 whf1701XI 0 0 256 256 hf1701XIw3 whf1701XI 0 0 256 256 hf1701XIw4 whf1701XI 0 0 256 256 hf1701XIw5 whf1701XI 0 0 256 256 fCstit1XIw1 wfCstit1XI 0 0 256 256 fCstit1XIw2 wfCstit1XI 0 0 256 256 fCstit1XIw3 wfCstit1XI 0 0 256 256 fCstit1XIw4 wfCstit1XI 0 0 256 256 fCstit1XIw5 wfCstit1XI 0 0 256 256 3. Open tech1.tt in the techtrees folder and add the line fCstit1XI.odf 0 // Constitution Phase I Class - Star Trek XI Version hf1701XI.odf 0 // USS Enterprise NCC-1701 - Star Trek XI Version 4. Open one of your shipyard files (fyard.odf, fyard2.odf) & add the following line to the build section. Remember the "x" at the end of "buildItemX" should be replaced with the number that follows the last build item in that yard build list. buildItemX = "fCstit1XI" buildItemX = "hf1701XI" 5. Now just play & when you go to the shipyard which you told to build her will now be able to construct this vessel.
