This project is a tribute to the kind of spaceships I was designing as a younger teenager before the movies "Star Wars" and "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" came out. During those halcyon days of my youth, there was no set canon among "Star Trek" fans of what "Star Trek" ships were supposed to look like. I found myself gravitating towards hull configurations that mixed elements of "Spaceship Discovery" from the 1960's science fiction film "2001: A Space Odyssey" with those of the "Starship Enterprise from 1960's TV show "Star Trek: The Original Series." Of the designs presented here, "Starship Apotheosis" most resembles the "Star Trek" designs I was doing during my teenage years. All three ships attempt to convey the sense of innocent wonder I often felt during that era of my artistic life. These are the kind of designs I would have created back then if I had the 3D CGI tools and skills that I now possess. I hope that young teenager would be pleased.
