Just for fun, I'd like to compose a list of all the ships shown (or more likely, NOT shown) in TOS that could quite possibly have a new design made for the Enhanced version of each ep the said vessel was featured in.

Here's my list:

The Antares from "Charlie X",

Harry Mudd's Class-J cargo ship from "Mudd's Women",

The Gorn ship from "Arena",

The space battle between the Enterprise and Klingon ships in "Errand of Mercy",

The Orion ship in "Journey To Babel",

The Klingon scout ship in "Friday's Child",

Three new ship designs to represent the stock-footage Connies, and a new design for the Woden, in "The Ultimate Computer",

The wreckage of the S.S. Beagle in "Bread and Circusus".


Any others I missed?

I don't think they will/should change the Connies in "The Ultimate Computer," because they're all supposed to be top-of-the-line starships for a major battle exercise. Although variety would be cool, I think it's reasonable to keep them the same.

I absolutely agree with all the others, though.

They've already revealed(albeit it in a very coy way) that the Antares and Orion ship will be made. I'm looking forward to those, as well as the J Class you mentioned. There was a good design for that ship in one of the Last Unicorn RPG books.

I don't think they're creating effects shots beyond those that already exist in the episodes. Probably a shot of the Antares docking with the Enterprise will replace the shot of the E at the beginning of "Charlie X," and the ships above that were represented by simple flashes of light will probably be likewise replaced, but I wouldn't expect any space battles in "Errand Of Mercy" or the Beagle in "Bread And Circuses," as there are no corresponding FX in the original episodes.

I also doubt that they will use different designs for the Connies in "The Ultimate Computer." The image of those ships fighting each other is too iconic to change.

The Gorn ships in the "Starfleet Academy"-game looked like shit. Like they'd been made in play-do with a cookie-cutter. "Klingon Academy" wasn't much *better. Hope these people can do better, without using Jem'Hadar nacelles.

*Of course, maybe the Gorn did use giant orbital cookie-cutters, they didn't seem very dexterious. Guhaw-haw.

Bele's starship from "Let that Be Your Last Battlefield." Although I think the dialogue conveniently states the ship is invisible.

*smacks head* Dammit, I always knew that the name of the prison ship in BSG sounded familiar! I never took the time to look it up, but each time the name was mentioned, I thought to myself, "Where is that name from?" (And then I forgot/neglected to follow up on it.)

Anyone else think that the Klingon "scout" from "Errand of Mercy" should look like a vague predecessor to the Bird-of-Prey? (Ignoring that ridiculously-overengineered ENT design, of course.)

No. I'm a firm believer that the Klingons got the BOP from the Romulans during th etechnology exchange, and that it wouldn't be in widespread use that quickly.

How do you explain the early BoP in Enterprise then - which occurred prior to ST:ToS?

Ciao!

I imagine he ignores it.

In an odd way it would be nice to see Mudd's ship as being the same Class-J from ENT. Albiet just a front section, sans the large cargo pods. Maybe re-textured to fit in with the TOS look.

I suspect that the "in-house" CBS guys are not bothering to pilfer Paramount's stable of models, and instead coming up with their own stuff. So, *if* we see something new, it'll be a new design (or a new CG model of a pre-existing one).

Enterprise is a blight on the face of Trek. With nuBSG, I can watch it for its own merits without thinking of it as BSG. With Enterprise, I had constant reminders throughout that it was supposed to be Trek, but poorly executed on a variety of levels (though not the acting). So yeah, I ignore any Klingon ship referred to as a Bird-of-Prey prior to "The Enterprise Incident".
