Pierre Drolet's amazing starship graveyard
Visual effects artist Pierre Drolet has started a website, Sci-Fi Museum, to display the models he has made for TV shows and movies, including Battlestar Galactica, Serenity, and of course Star Trek. He format is pretty unusual, and much fun - If you liked his Ships of the Line image of the crashed Columbia NX-02 (the image that inspired the Destiny trilogy), then you're in for a treat, as his starships are on displayed in one massive desert starship graveyard. Browse around and you'll find Voyager in ablative armor, and Friendship 1, the Romulan capital city, and loads of ships from Enterprise; a great opportunity to have a really good look at these sometimes only fleetingly seen designs. The NX-01 refit is there as well, as are a few real world designs, which give a nice sense of scale. I've picked out a few of my favourites below (more after the jump too). Check out Pierre Drolet's Sci-Fi Museum to see everything.
