Default Star Trek - Constitution Class Re-Imagined

I long wanted to design my own version of the Constitution class
This is my version of the Constitution class design (All in one Album) based on the classic Enterprise designs by Walter M. Jefferies in 2017 and is an on going project,
I found the original scale of 947ft problematic in a number of areas, so I increased the scale too 1311.5ft and not on a whim, but by trial and error, each area of interest had to fit, from the bridge to the hangar bay, I also wanted the deck height to reflect what we see in the TV series and I learned that he height of the set was 10ft, so 10ft is what I aimed for with the floor/deck/ceiling 1ft thick.
the hangar deck is 108ft long.

I always considered the deck amount for the original was 23 decks based on my main source "The Making of Star Trek" by Stephen E. Whitfield (Poe) and Gene Roddenberry, other books have appeared but this remains my first, as to the issue with scale, well I like to think as the show was in flux in as the book was reaching bookshelves in 1968, they where producing a show, not building a ship never expecting we be taking our measuring imagination to see how things might work,,


Constitution Class Re-Imagined
Length: 1311’5 Feet
Width: 577’5 Feet
Height: 319’11 Feet
23 Decks.
Crew Complement 430.
7 Class F Shuttlecraft
Escape Pods 192
164 Primary Hull 4 persons per pod = 656 Crew
28 Secondary Hull 4 persons per pod = 128 Crew
Total Escape Pod Personnel Capacity = 768

Those two images are beautiful. The model renders very well.

This project is finished, so creating a w.i.p. after the fact seems a little redundant. So just post the w.i.p. images here and that keeps everything in one convenient location.

This is my work on the Reboot USS Enterprise and its hangar bay and how I thing it could be, I still think this design can carry between 6 or 8 shuttles depending on the arrangement but this seems to work well
I could have 2 stationed in the main hangar, with the duel elevator/rotating (Turntable) deck kept clear ? or 3 in the main hangar with one on station ready for launch on the elevator/rotating (Turntable) etc
With 4 stored in the deck below the hangar , there is room to move them around and I imagine that they can easily be moved, antigrav units or something like that.
The lower fantail cut of the secondary hull prohibits the shuttle elevator going down more then one level,, so I have added two additional side elevators to the forward shuttle storage area (orange surface colour, one occupied by a shuttle) have additional shuttles at his or her disposal, they can.. so lets say that the maximum class F shuttles this design can carry is 8.. possibly adding one or two workbees of the period.
I added 2 smaller cargo elevators to the forward wall, beyond that would be the Engineering sections, for those times Cargo Transporters cannot be used.. as we know these things happen

Excellent work on this!

Didn't the original deck plans have the shuttle compliment at eight?

In The Making of the TV series Star Trek by Stephen E. Whitfield lists 6 Shuttles craft other sources say 4 I think 8 is max for the design..

In the episode Omega Glory, they said the Exeter had 4, so maybe they are allotted 4, but have room for a few more in case of visitors.

Yes could be.. I read somewhere it was up to the captain to decide on the compliment .. worked for me.. I think on my version 6 or 7 would or could be standard,. though when I first watched STAR TREK Galileo 7 I thought there would be 7 shuttles. )

though I found the accepted scale for the Constitution class difficult to work with, 947ft more or less unworkable

the scale I gave the shuttle (by Aggi) to test was 27.8ft which I found works well not perfect, but showed me that the Hangar was too small and no room for the external corridors we see in Journey to Babel etc..



I created a PDF with a few observations and ideas I had over the course of the build. I cannot say I will return to this design anytime soon but may help others to explore ideas or correct errors I've made..
