Star Trek Online has been going strong for over seven years. In that time, the triangle budgets for our ships have increased as PC performance creeps upward. Every now and then, I will take advantage of these larger budgets to "revamp" an existing ship. This particular ship is especially important, as it is the class of ship that represents Star Trek Online's very own Enterprise F.
For this model, I started with the original geometry and smoothed out the surfaces and added detail until it was more in line with contemporary models in the game, then completely remapped the UVs to the updated geometry.
Adam Williams created the original model. The Odyssey class was based on a design by Adam Ihle for STO's "Design the Next Enterprise" contest. Adam Williams and Jeremy Mattson fleshed out Ihle's design into this final form. I made some small detail additions here and there when I updated the model. The material was created by Adam Williams.
