USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B by thefirstfleet USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B by thefirstfleet
"USS Enterprise, Captain Pavel Chekov commanding. It has been three years now since my friend and mentor, Kipten James T. Kirk was lost during this wessil's trial run. Vith our first mission complete, ve look forvard to continue on the footsteps of Kipten Kirk and all the starships named Enterprise: to boldly go where no man has gone before".


Here she is, folks, my spin on the Enterprise-B, jumping on the bandwagon on how to make the third 1701 look less silly than she has appeared in canon.
I kept the nacelle fins, they reminded me of the classic Connie's intercoolers, and I re-imagined the nacelle front ends/Bussard collectors. They're still blue, I think the reddish colour looks weird on the Excelsior class.
The concept of Chekov being her Captain is originated by an amazing fanfiction, "Mission of Honor", written by Virginia Boehm Worthen, years before Generations was released. I find it appropriate that the command of the Federation flagship is given to an experienced veteran and not a greenhorn like they did it in canon.
Also, we need more Russian Captains! :D

Concept based upon the works of Brannon Braga and Virginia Boehm Worthen

This picture makes me realize that none of the star trek ships had a nice paint job. Did style die in the future?

I think it's not worth painting the ships as they become more and more huge.

Oh I understand the principal. What I am saying is. Is there not one FABuLOUS race of aliens that goes to the bother. Logic does not always rule the universe.

Well, the Hirogen decorate the inside of their ships with trophies from their hunts (Predator style). But most Trek ships are parts of some sort of military. And those are always uniformized.

Sweet! Now this is what the Enterprise-B should've looked like. Also, I like having Chekov in command instead of Harriman since it makes tons more sense.
