NCC-1701-A USS Enterprise
Hello everyone,
My name is Colin and I was a member here under the name of birdy. Back then I was trying to get to grips with this program and with the great help of K.Manktelow tried to work on the SAAB SA 43 but sadly gave up on it as I couldn't get to get to grips with maps and textures, guess it was and still is beyond me. So after trying for ages to finish it gave up. However my desire to create never went away and after a long absence I have returned. I wish I could say that I have learnt to apply maps and textures but sadly not so i have had to make do with simply adding colour to faces to achieve anything. Here is my favourite ship of all time and although I didn't create this model, it was created by Eric Peterson and can be found at www.trekmeshes, I have tried to add as much detail through colouring as I can. I know it's far from complete but I hope you agree, she is a beautiful ship.

It's a nice ship, lighting is key to space pics, so work on that, in space light is usually quite sharp... with not to much ambient lighting.

That can change depending on the environment of course :)

this would be a simple example of multipass rendering. Render out an ambient/beauty pass, passes for each type of light, the sun, fill lights, bacground etc and it would composite really well.

I'm bored so I might make a tutorial on it. Anyone have a spare Enterprise?

Only if we can joke about it. And the only joke I can think of at a moment's notice is having a model of the ship in a cage and irate trekkers parading outside with signs that say "FREE ENTERPRISE".

Of course it doesn't have to be about the space ship...


* Discoverer Enterprise, deepwater drillship that gives its name to the "Enterprise Class" of large drillships
* HMS Enterprise, any of fifteen ships of the British Royal Navy (four others did not use the HMS prefix)
* USS Enterprise Navy vessel, and the only ship named Enterprise in the American Civil War
* Enterprise (1814), a privately owned steamboat captained by Henry Miller Shreve
* Enterprize (1829), Melbourne's tall ship
* ‎Enterprise (1855)‎, a 19th century steamer on the Columbia and Fraser Rivers
* Enterprise (1862), pioneer stern wheeler on the upper Fraser River
* Enterprise, a sailing ship caught in a storm off St. Ives, Cornwall in 1903
* SS Flying Enterprise, built in 1944 and originally commissioned as the SS Cape Kumukaki (C1-B)
* London Enterprise, an oil tanker built for London & Overseas Freighters in 1950 and scrapped in 1974 or '75.
* London Enterprise, a Panamax oil tanker built for London & Overseas Freighters in 1983
* Enterprise (dinghy), a class of sailing dinghy


* Enterprise (balloon), a hot air balloon used by the Union Army during the American Civil War
* Enterprise, an early Goodyear Blimp


* Space Shuttle Enterprise
* VSS Enterprise, the inaugural vessel of the Virgin Galactic suborbital tourism fleet


* Starship Enterprise, any of several ships by that name in the Star Trek fictional universe
* Enterprise, a ship used by the party in the game Final Fantasy III
* Enterprise, an airship used by Cecil Harvey and his party in the game Final Fantasy IV
* Enterprise, a starship built by the Sword World of Gram in H. Beam Piper's novel Space Viking

And that list does not include the companies, cities and other things listed on Wikipedia...
