The third volume in this acclaimed series focuses on the J.J. Abram’s Star Trek films - featuring nearly 20 ships, including the new Enterprise!

Explore the process behind the creation of the ships features in the Star Trek, Star Trek: Into Darkness and Star Trek: Beyond films. This is the story of how some of the most talented designers in Hollywood created STAR TREK’s starships from the first sketches to the finished models that appeared on screen.

This book covers nearly 20 new ships from the modern STAR TREK movies, from the new Enterprise to a fleet of Federation ships that was barely seen. Along the way it covers the thinking behind Klingon and Romulan ships and the heavily-armed U.S.S. Vengeance.

This third volume in the Designing the Starships series collects the profiles and design history from the rebooted Star Trek “Kelvin Timeline” film universe. The “Kelvin Timeline” is an alternate reality timeline in which the current Star Trek film universe operates. It is named after the ship captained by Captain Kirks father in the first of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek films, the U.S.S. Kelvin.

Ships included: U.S.S. Enterprise, U.S.S. Enterprise-A, Narada, U.S.S. Kelvin, Spock’s Jellyfish, U.S.S. Yorktown Space Station, and many more. Includes 6 ships that were designed for the final sequence of Star Trek: Beyond which were not used and have never been seen before.

Series Overview: The Star Trek: Designing Starships series brings fans of Star Trek to the actual drawing tables where the designs of theses iconic starships were born. Never before seen concept art graces nearly every page, guiding the reader through the process of bringing the ships to screen.

Hundreds of physical and CGI model development photos from concept art, blueprints, sketches, and schematics, provided by the original designers and the vast archives of CBS and Paramount Studios.

Interviews with creative personel from the Star Trek films include Scott Chambliss, Ryan Church, James Clyne, Sean Hargreaves, Romek Delimata, Tim Flattery, John Eaves, Bryan Hitch, and many more.

Customizable dust jacket.

“ For fans of Star Trek starships and for fans of the Kelvin Timeline (and certainly for fans of both!), this reference book is a must have.” – Trek Core

“… the Designing Starships series is hard to beat as a complete set of coffee table books. Each book is a manageable size to thumb through, without being so big that they become unwieldy.” – Trek Core

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.
