Interesting Article on Design of New Star Trek Ships


Recommended Posts

One thing I didn't understand was this bit of the interview:

 

I am also quite taken by the gigantic, octopus-like United Federation of Planets satellite/space station. Is that your work as well?That was another Scott Chambliss design. Everybody had taken a stab at the spaceport, then Scott came up with that idea; I did a lot of illustrations of variations on the basic concept.

 

Funny, this one is from the movie:

Which I think looks a lot like this one from the old Tech Manual:

OK, the hub is smaller, the ring is moved inward and the pods are bigger, but I think the design credit goes farther back than the interview suggested.

 

Great review, tho. Good find!!
