Star Trek Starships Vehicle & Collectors Magazine Exclusive: U.S.S. Voyager (Sternbach Concept)
The U.S.S. Voyager Concept was created by Rick Sternbach in the early stages of coming up with a new, sleeker and smaller ship than the Enterprise-D for the fourth Star Trek series. Sternbach's early Voyager sketches show a streamlined vessel with a dart-like hull, an extended engineering section, and runabout-like warp pylons in the back. Parts were added and removed and gently curved hull contours were worked on over numerous weeks and months to bring the U.S.S. Voyager known as today.
The accompanying magazine explores the detailed design and specifications of the ship, as well as the ship's history.
