The Enterprise-E bridge set under construction. For the final TNG film, it was built on gimbals allowing it to shake around for the first time in Star Trek history. No more need for the actors to shake around in their seats for once!
“The Starship Enterprise is not a collection of motion picture sets or a model used in visual effects. It is a very real vehicle: one designed for storytelling. You, the audience, furnish its propulsion. With a wondrous leap of imagination, you make it into a spaceship that can take us into the far reaches of the galaxy and sometimes the depths of the human soul….”
- Gene Roddenberry

So the last few weeks I’ve been working on a side project, A new updated MSD of the Enterprise-E. The original MSD was created before the actual model, as such there are a few inaccuracies. The new version is based on the CGI Nemesis model.
