EXTERNAL VIEWS

Check out this animated GIF I created of the six external views.  I made custom plots of the externals from my CAD files and scanned them at a resolution of only 100 dpi.  These 16-color gray-scale images don't even come close to portraying the level of detail featured in the actual prints.  The overall length of the external views in the plans is approximately 7-3/4 inches.  However, at a 1200 dpi print resolution, you will receive THE most accurate representation of this starship ever documented.  Enjoy...

BLUEPRINT SAMPLES

So you've seen starship blueprints and deck plans before, right?  You've seen the famous STAR TREK Blueprints by Franz Joseph, featuring the classic Constitution-class starship, that started all this off in 1974.  Perhaps you've seen the Starship Enterprise NCC-701-A Deck Plans created by Strategic Design in 1992.  You've even seen the amazing U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) Blueprints created by Rick Sternbach in 1996.  You've seen the full-color rendered deck plans of the U.S.S. Defiant in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual.  Perhaps you've seen some of the many other quality blueprints, deck plans, schematics & renderings of various Star Trek vessels, created in the last 30 years by Star Trek fandom.  But you've never seen a fan-generated starship design package of this caliber.  We have made use of every piece of Treknology literature available, to create the most comprehensive layout of a starship to date.

So prove it...right?  Well, we surely would not post on the web every drawing we have compiled.  No one would purchase a hardcopy set of the plans if they were offered for free online.  So we have compiled a set of teasers for you, to prove this set of 17 detailed drawings & 3 sheets of text is worth your $12.  Here are just some small samples of what you'll get in your set...

If you're not convinced yet, there will be more to come...  [top]


TWENTY (20) 11" x 17" DRAWINGS PRINTED AT 1200dpi

The bulk of your package will in fact be the twenty (20) 11" x 17" tabloid sheets of white bond paper, featuring graphics imagery and text plotted by an HP LaserJet 5000 printer at 1200dpi.  Theses schematics encompass all the best information known to fandom on this famous line of starships.  No vessel, save certain builds of the famous line of starships named "Enterprise", has received this much attention to detail.  These plans have been five years in the making and reflect the pain-staking hard work of Michael C. Rupprecht and Alex Rosenzweig.  We hope you enjoy viewing them as much as we enjoyed creating them.  [top]
