Lot Essay

The Starship Enterprise was originally designed in 1964 by art director Walter M. Jefferies for the first Star Trek series. It has earned its place as an icon of science fiction design. In 1977, Jefferies updated his famous ship for the proposed Star Trek: Phase II series. When the project morphed into Star Trek: The Motion Picture, designers Richard Taylor and Andrew Probert of Robert Abel and Associates, along with Douglas Trumbull and others joined forces to further refine Jefferies' concept into what many regard as the definitive Star Trek starship. Magicam, under the supervision of Joe Mazza and James Dow, built this exceptionally well-detailed, robust model, with additional work by Future General. Noted airbrush artist Paul Olsen created the ship's signature "aztec" panelwork. The model was modified slightly by ILM to represent the Enterprise-A in Star Trek IV, Vand VI. The movie version of the Starship Enterprise is one of the finest visual effects models ever made for motion picture science fiction.
