The 15 Most Devastating Space Vessels in the Star Trek Universe. ​In the Star Trek universe created by Gene Roddenberry, there are a myriad of iconic images many people remember: Green Orion slave girls, the Borg, phasers, heroes, villains, and that big-headed alien that Clint Howard pretends to be that shows up at the end of the credits of the original series, and more.

But take anyone off the street, and odds are they can identify at least one incarnation of the USS Enterprise. Starships have long been one of the easily recognizable parts of Star Trek lore; while Roddenbery's vision of the future was for the most part peaceful, with brains far exceeding brawn, not all conflict could be resolved by hugging it out. Sometimes your typical starship just wasn't enough. Franz Joseph and Star Trek’s Blueprint Culture. As part of a larger project I’m preparing on “blueprint culture” — fan subcultures devoted to drawing, drafting, charting, mapping, and playing the worlds of science-fiction media — here is a brief history, excerpted from my book manuscript on special effects and transmedia, of Franz Joseph and the Starfleet Technical Manual he created in 1975.

One man in particular would dominate Star Trek’s design-oriented fandom in the 1970s. Though not a fan himself, Franz Joseph Schnaubelt was the first to awaken a broad base of fans to the pleasures of charting and extending Star Trek’s diegetic backdrop. Starship Schematics Database.

Besides Matt Jeffries, no designer has had such a wide ranging influence on the look of the Trek universe. An Engaging Career Andrew, Thank you very much for taking the time to answer some questions for us. Thanks for asking. Your body of work is quite impressive. Being the designer of the Cylon warriors for the original Battlestar: Galactica was my first Hollywood job while I was still in school,... a definite high point. Wow, definitely. I designed the look of the Ferengi Race and their Marauder Starship followed by the Romulan Warbird ships for TNG but that was pretty much it. What other iconic vehicles have you worked on? I have not officially been a production designer... yet. I'd have to agree.

Star Trek: Ships of the Line is a series of Star Trek calendars that began production in 2000 for the year 2001. They feature starships from all eras, as well as ships created for the calendars.

Since then, I’ve become obsessed to varying degrees with shows including Star Trek, Babylon 5, Farscape, Andromeda, and others. The infinite realm of possibilities presented through these stories has great appeal to me — but I’ve loved different shows for different reasons. I love Star Trek for its optimistic tone and its incredibly detailed universe. Farscape caught my eye because of its refreshing, casual tone and the writers’ willingness to take risks in order to produce an exciting, entertaining series.

And Babylon 5 stole my heart with its stirring, inspiring, all-encompassing series arc about the conflict between Order and Chaos. Star Trek Online Official Site.

Forgotten Starships: "Canon" References to Star Trek Spacecraft Designed by Franz Joseph by Greg Tyler February 15, 2003 Updated December 30, 2005 Introduction At a time when nearly every visual detail that's barely distinguishable in a Star Trek episode or feature film is declared "canon," that is a "real" element of the fictional Star Trek universe, it is somewhat surprising that many fans do not take into consideration the existence of a number of starship classes that appear, or certainly seem to appear, in the first three Star Trek feature films.

Among these elements were a number of designs for starships that had configurations that differed from that of the Enterprise and her sister ships, all Constitution-class vessels. Class I Heavy Cruiser - The first wave of these vessels were referred to as Constitution-class starships. (As an aside, the idea of fictional elements "really" existing in a fictional universe amuses me.) Class I Heavy Cruiser (Constitution-Class Starships) Conclusion.
