Jefferies Nod by Rob-Caswell Jefferies Nod by Rob-Caswell
An homage to Matt Jeffries, who would have been 91 today. His "ringship", which seemed to be the original concept behind "Andromeda". Memories of 1970's Lincoln Enterprises abound!

Model by David Metlestis!

The man knew his stuff. It's shocking how close this is to the "real" conceptual Enterprise they're talking about building...

...And God I hope that ship, and that name stick. It would be a dream come true. A space-warp ship named Enterprise, boldly going where no one has gone before. 


Well done on this render. It's an elegant and beautiful design.

I rather doubt we'll see a warp ship in our lifetime, but I'd be delighted to be wrong about that :)

What can I say? I dare to dream that we may yet see a revolution of thought in our life time. :D

Always liked this ship, admittedly, I always like the way the Andromeda Ascendent that they eventually used was so advanced it looked alien, but this one here is still a very nice design.

Interesting to note that the NASA concept Enterprise is also a ring ship. :)

It's more interesting to me that Jeffries would use this design decades before the Albicurrie warp drive was proposed. Good ole Matt J. was prescient that way.
