The modern interpretation of the X.C.V. These modern versions create their own story saying the ship was an early design that proved to be a technological dead end. To me the design is way too clean for pre-Federation technology.

If producing the movie I would want a rougher looking ship that has elements that are a reminiscent of a cross between the Pheonix and the NX Enterprise.

Project Materials

As a writer, I know how much hard work, creativity, and dedication it takes to create something special. Unfortunately, there are some who don’t value the effort that goes into creating these materials and instead choose to steal. Due to this theft, I have had to remove all materials from my website. However, if you are interested in accessing these materials for legitimate business purposes, I am more than happy to provide details. Please reach out to me using your organization’s email address and I will be glad to assist you. Thank you for your understanding and for respecting the time and effort that goes into these works.
