Abbe Class Destroyer - TMPish by Enterprise-E Abbe Class Destroyer - TMPish by Enterprise-E
This is sort of how i would like future Star Trek movies to look. Going back towards that beautiful TMP style... I call it neo-TMP look, becasue it doesn't quite replicate the original, and because of the differences between real model photography and CGI it never will, i think it still has some of the TMP feel in it, being a CGI alternative to it.

And merry Christmas to all my viewers!

No question asked, it does look menacing. You wouldn't want to be smuggler caught by it.

Damn that is a sexy render, the lighting is superb. Love the hull design too, I've always found it odd that Reliant and her ilk always lack a deflector dish, this variant makes much more sense. Awesome job!

Truly beautiful work! the Abbe is one of my favorite designs and in my opinion TMP era Trek has the most elegant feel to it, even moreso than the organic look of the TNG era.

I agree with you. I like the look and feel of the design of TMP era Star Trek. I would be great to see another movie of even TV series set in this era.

is there battle damage on her?

No serious damage, she's just more wear and tear then your usual Starfleet ship, because, being less of a luxury liner, and more of an actual military vessel, she's seen a lot of combat.

This is great!!! I like the idea of the deflector integrated into the "miranda-class-like-hull-design". It's really good!

Very nice. Great design and lighting/lights.
What render engine and modeller do you use? You can change the render engine, or settings to get near photorealism effects.

This is really awesome, the texture mimics the impentrable tritanium surface of fed starships. The only thing that might be better is technobabblish neutronium.

I meant to say "Well done" as well. I hit the send button prematurely.

Where/how did you manage the lack of shuttlebay on the abbe? I see you added the deflector on the front - well done (I didn't bother with my ship :-/)

It has a shuttle bay integrated into it's saucer. Not visible on this image because of the angle. Look for my other Abbé images, it should be visible there.

Okay. I did the same thing. (I can't recall how it was done on the original schematics). If you've ever seen Lord Schtupps TOS stuff he added a module to the Saladin/Hermes just below the saucer on the nacelle connector that had a shuttlebay. I've added that same idea to my TMP stuff, where it can fit at least.

Nicely done - especially like the worn, "used" look of the ship. It's been around the block a few times. And you've definitely got the Trek-movie feel down pat. Very nice indeed. :)

Ha szabad így mondanom, kibaszott szé;p!

Megosztanál pár trükköt/tippet, hogy hogyan lehet ilyen fény-effekteket csinálni? Terveztem már, hogy szerény kis Polarisommal csinálok egy ilyen scene-t.

As the Abbé class is a much more combat oriented ship, i though it'd have a more worn and torn look then the super clean default for Federation ships.
