Enterprise Deck Plans
I wrote over a year ago about how one of my childhood fascinations was blueprints for Star Trek ships.
This started with the Franz Joseph Enterprise blueprints (published in 1973, before I was born), which made the Enterprise seem like a real place.
But they were also frustrating because they seemed, well, wrong. Notably they put engineering with the impulse engines on the saucer, instead of in the star drive section—where, logically, the warp drive would feed the nacelles. I mean, duh!
I just discovered a careful reimagining of the Enterprise plans by designer Jim Botaitis to correct that and many other inaccuracies. Apparently these are a few years years old—but I just found out, so it’s news to me!
It’s amazing work!
