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!

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.

I saw that Ship on the Wall in Star Trek Motion Picture. No NX-01 ftw. Very nice render. :clap:

I was trying to evoke the design before it got adopted by Trek, from '79 onward.
