Artist and CGI designer Mark Rademaker, who first got my attention when he stepped up to design the sleek-as-lightning Vesta-class starships I concocted in the Star Trek Destiny trilogy (for Captain Ezri Dax’s slipstream-drive hotrod the U.S.S. Aventine), has teamed up with Star Trek veteran designer Mike Okuda to help NASA scientist Harold White create a more realistic vision for a future “warp drive” starship, which they’ve dubbed the IXS Enterprise.
Check out this video, which mentions their contribution to the project (starting at 41:54):
Awesome work, guys! Here’s hoping someone perfects a cure for aging and death so we can call stick around long enough to take a ride on one of these beauties, and set foot on an alien shore!
