With the release of Star Trek Online's "Age of Discovery" update, we wanted to allow players to fly one of the ships featured in the pilot episode of Star Trek: Discovery, the Nimitz class. In addition to adding the canon ship to the game, we also wanted to create our own spin on the design that felt at home in the 25th century setting of Star Trek Online. The result was the Europa class havey battlecruiser. I designed and modeled this ship. The materials it uses were created by Adam Gibson and Ian Richards.

It was a lot of fun taking one of Discovery's designs and doing our own riff on it, and it's something we've continued to do in the months since this ship was released.
