Review From the inside flap This book features the ships from the movies STAR
TREK (2009), STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS (2013), and STAR TREK BEYOND (2016). It
begins with the Enterprise: Director J.J. Abrams took on the challenge of
redesigning the iconic starship for the 21st Century, working with production
designer Scott Chambliss to create a ship that would be similar but noticeably
different to the Enterprises of the past. Chamblis also worked to create the
look of three different cultures: human, Vulcan and Romulan, developing their
worlds to represent each civilizations’ character. Alongside the Enterprise is
the Jellyfish: Spock’s organic Vulcan ship modelled on a gyroscope; the multi-
bladed Romulan mining ship the Narada; and the vast 23rd Century city-station
Yorktown, plus the U.S.S. Kelvin, the Altamid Swarm Ship and more.The chapters
tell the stories of how the designers’ visions made it to screen, from first
concept to finished model, and examine their inspirations, from JFK Airport to
the backbone of a humpback whale.DESIGNING STARSHIPS is a series of lavishly
illustrated art books that detail the design process behind the most memorable
ships in STAR TREK’s history. Each book showcases original production artwork,
and features in-depth interviews with the concept artists who created the
ships, exploring exactly how each ship was created and offering a fascinating
glimpse of what could have been. Read more About the Author Ben Robinson is
