Star Trek Voyager: Intrepid prototype full render by calamitySi Star Trek Voyager: Intrepid prototype full render by calamitySi
Rick Sternbach designed this as a primary concept idea for the USS Voyager. The original sketch that I'm basing this on can be found here:

He was later told to 'smooth' the design over and make it look a bit more like a Lexus, which he did.

This design, although clunky, is a particular favourite of mine and has been ever since I first saw it when I was about 15 years old in the 'Art of Star Trek' book. Sternbach did other angled views of this concept, but changed the details whenever he did so, meaning that this picture is the ONLY existing image of this particular design. It was quite a challenge to build my Sketchup model to match, especially as I had never seen the navigational deflector array before, so essentially, I got to add my own flair to the design. Here's the finished model:

Would have loved to have seen the special shuttle. It's like, they needed it in soooo many episodes but never used it. :(

i am actually working on a Dark Mirror schematic of this same design right now. Great work. I bet Rick likes what you have done here.

Yeah no worries mate. I'll try to make sure that they're as high rez as I can. It'll probably take about 4 for days to render.
