The Polaris-Class is a new deep space multi-use explorer in the 25th Century, performing many of the same duties as the Galaxy-Class. This ship is considerably larger than the Sovereign with more interior space. The Polaris has the ability to saucer separate, and includes a newly designed Ursae-Class captain's yacht.

Century class should have been the ENTERPRISE-E and the Polaris (slipstream project) class should be the ENTERPRISE-F, respectively.

So beautiful. I actually play the MMO Star Trek Online, I would so love for the Polaris class to be ingame. 

I have two classes of ship i love, Sovereign & Archon. The Polaris, seems to meld alot of these designs, while still feeling she can take on any threat, but at the same time, be as gentle as a mother with her new born child.

Can the crew bring their families along as well?

She's a beauty! Nice job!
Will you create the Ursae-Class yacht? Or?
trekmodeler's avatar
The Ursae yacht was made years ago, along with the Polaris. I'm surprised I don't have any pictures of it here on dA.
Where would you have it? If I may ask?
trekmodeler's avatar
The yacht is actually located on the bottom saucer, near the front.

Did you make it is 3DS max, and have you posted your conceptual drawings somewhere? I'd love to see how you started out with it. :)

I make all of my meshes in 3ds Max. I have not posted any conceptual artwork anywhere, since they are pretty rough.

Going by eyeball and deck heights, I scale her out to about 802 meters long.  Does that sound about right?

*Edit, never mind.  I found the spec sheet.  Was the first version longer by a bit?
trekmodeler's avatar
I scaled the original Polaris to be 775 meters, based from the deck count I created when I was creating the windows. The overall length could be a few meters either way.

Interesting.  I guess the model I was measuring was off.  I did note that on your comparison/evolution image the "refit" is slightly shorter than the original.  That's what made me wonder.

Either way, fantastic work!  She's going into my "head canon".
trekmodeler's avatar
You are correct. The "refit"/Armada III version is slightly shorter since the saucer is oval instead of egg-shaped.
MorganDonovan's avatar
That would explain it.  That and that I wasn't measuring from your refit model.  I suspect whoever modeled the one I was using based it off of your first version.

Thanks for replying! :)

Someone else modeled my Polaris? Please let me know!

The only two I know in existence is the Bridge Commander one and the Armada III one. Both are modeled by me.

AH uses Bridge Commander models to make orthos.  I presume that's where he got this.  He does give you proper credits.
