Norway by thefirstfleet Norway by thefirstfleet
It took me ages to build this model. Not because it's so hard, but because of the lack of reference materials. I had to fill up some parts with some own designs, following the lines of my AltDefiant. Well, after about three months and completing many other projects during the run, I present you the Norway class USS Budapest. Like my home city she was named after, she's a pain in the ass build, but once done, the result is not too bad, I think.

I'll release her with my next batch.





Model by me
Background by NASA

One of Trek's most under-appreciated designs, IMO.  Nice work :)

I know nothing about her background on TNG; I only know that she's a beautiful looking ship, and the picture is spectacular.

Thank you very much!

The Norway class appeared only once, in the movie Star Trek: First Contact. The ship was never seen again, rumor has it, the original CGI model was lost in a computer error.

Nope, it's a norway class starship.

The official USS Norway had no blue on her nacelles. Nor did she have a deflector. what you show here as a deflector was actually a phaser lance like the one the Enterprise-D had in "All Good Things"

Just sayin.

Actually, IIRC, there were blue lines on the nacelles, but only on the inside. I cannot really comment on the deflector dish, however, I think it might've been a blue/purple light instead, not necessarily a phaser lance though, but something like that.
In any case, Dave here knows what he is doing ;P

Given the minimal amount of references, I took some liberties of my own.

Well, whatever you eventually come up with can't really be faulted. I read somewhere the original CGI design files for the Norway were corrupted.

Had a lot of great roleplaying adventures on a Norway-class called USS Dublin back when I played in the IRC chat division of Star Trek: A Call to Duty. Dublin had many great players/writers back then, and was specced as a ship built for diplomacy, science, and light patrol duty. Thanks for the small, but good dose of nostalgia.

Doesn't look like they have the luxury of a holodeck...not living the good ol days of The Galaxy Class anymore...

Well, the holodech is part shield array, part replicator. So, about the biomatter... don't ask what your shipboard meal is made of...

Beautiful picture, Dave. For all the blanks you had to fill in on that one, she turned out very well.
