USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B by dragonpyper USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B by dragonpyper
The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B was an Excelsior Class Starship, commissioned in 2293.

Commanding Officers:
John Harriman, William George, Demora Sulu, and Thomas Johnson Jr.

(Famous, in at least one reality, because Captain James T. Kirk was lost on her maiden voyage)

The Enterprise was instrumental in exploring the area of space beyond the Gourami Sector, mapping 142 star systems and making first contact with 17 civilizations.

Involved in numerous standoffs with Romulan Warships in the early 24th Century the Enterprise also took part in the disastrous 'Tomed Incident' where Starfleet, responded to a Romulan attack by outfitting several starships with cloaking devices and sending them into the Romulan Neutral Zone.
As negotiations progressed the Enterprise transported several Federation Ambassadors, including Sarak of Vulcan, to the planet Algeron.

Following the 'Treaty of Algeron' the Enterprise returned to exploration.

In the 2320's the Enterprise was reassigned to the newly established Cardassian Border.
When the Cardassians annexed Bajor in 2328 the Enterprise offered assistance to to a number of Bajorian refugee ships.

The Enterprise was lost and presumed destroyed in 2329. The last reports received indicated that the crew had contracted a dangerous infection. What happened after the final transmission and the Enterprise's ultimate fate remain unknown.

Enterprise-B Model by by J. Cassio "Starship" and Laércio "Medjai". Edited by myself for personal use.

The edit was inspired by Celticarchie's piece here celticarchie.deviantart.com/ar… I kept some Enterprise B details that I liked, primarily the Warp Drive Nacelles, less the extra fins, but got rid of the add on Impulse Engines and the flare-out on the engineering hull. They really messed up her lines.
NOTE: I know the Bussards in 'Generations' were blue. I made them red for continuity's sake.

Background by The Creator of All Things
Planet Textures from Celestia.
History of the ship from the Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual for the USS Enterprise.

Thanks for looking:thumbsup::ahoy:

Yep, this looks better and more appropriate! I don't mind the "Generations" version of the "B" but the added impulse drive units did bug me, as did the added fins on the engines. Your take here is much better! :)

I like your alterations to the Enterprise B..  Like others I never cared for the extra engines nor the additional detail on the secondary hull

I really like your version of the B, leaving out the breast implants was a good move.

You're most welcome. Are you planning any other views of your Enterprise?

Not too sure when, but eventually I will be doing some more works featuring the 'B', though my main affections are with pre-TOS and TOS.

Yeah my main affections are with TOS, TMP and pre-TOS including Enterprise. Great to hear you're going to make some new shots of the B down the track. :D

Please read my initial comments for this image
.
I made the edits to the mesh that I did because what they did to differentiate the Enterprise-B from the Excelsior, in my honest opinion, ruined the lines of the ship. It was an example of the producers believing that the fans were not intelligent enough to tell the difference between two distinct vessels of the same class.

I do appreciate that you find her cool. ;)

Thanks for the credits but, if it isnīt a kitbash of my mesh, them it isnīt mine. Was it made with parts of my mesh? :) This ships isnīt the "B", nor the Excelsior. Is some fan variant...

It was made from your mesh, therefore the credit.
It is my interpretation of what the 'B' should have looked like.

I too agree that the only improvements the Enterprise-B that I liked were the nacelles. The added impulse drive and added faring on the engineering section didn't improve the Enterprise at all.
