1. Commodore Kor'Tar - July 22, 2010

Nice! I know what I’ll be picking up!

2. Prologic9 - July 22, 2010

FYI that’s the 2010 October pic.

3. skysearcher - July 22, 2010

SWEET ! IM GETTING 2 OF THEM . ONE FOR COLLECTION ONE FOR MY WALL :-D

4. Captain Dan - July 22, 2010

Awesome! This could be one of the best SOTL calendars so far. Great focus on the Enterprise to TOS/ST09 era, kinda wish there was some more TNG (Enterprise -D or -E) but what’s in this edition looks great.

Love the NX-01 refit, and there’s a very interesting ship design in the second last image.

5. DreamerOutThere - July 22, 2010

In These Are The Voyages, didn’t we see Tripp in the old engine room working on the original warp reactor? And didn’t he say something like he’d continue to maintain it until the ship joined the moth ball fleet? If the ship received a new secondary hull and uprated reactor core, why did the holo recreation Riker was running show Tripp working on the old core rather than the new one?

6. Captain Dan - July 22, 2010

My bad, just realised the final image was of the Ent-E by the look of it.

7. Skippy2k - July 22, 2010

That NX refit is pretty cool, also kinda nice seeing another take on the old ring ship. Also that cover pic, while similar to one of the movie shots is pretty cool too!

8. Markonian - July 22, 2010

Personally I dislike it that at least half of the calendar is always showing TOS. It’s a great series, but why doesn’t every calendar include at least one month for each series?

But, having seen the pics of the 2011 cal I have to admit… the TOS and TMP pictures look totally great! So, weak complain on my side…

But I’d really like to see the Luna class U.S.S. Titan – that would be awesome!

Conclusion: 2011 – really great and eye candy

9. Nomad - July 22, 2010

Gorgeous artwork as always.

10. OfficialSpudUk (Formally known as PropperTrekkieUk) - July 22, 2010

@5 “And didn’t he say something like he’d continue to maintain it until the ship joined the moth ball fleet”

Because the Rike holodeck program was set before the the refit? And the remark about maintaining the ship until she was mothballed was just a throw away remark about devotion to the NX-01?

11. MagicDan - July 22, 2010

Wow. This reminds me of the whole reason I love Star Trek. Cool ships.

12. Smart - July 22, 2010

It’s too TOS heavy… Each series should get a fair share of pages.

2 TOS
2 TNG
2 DS9
2 VOY
2 ENT
2 Movies (1 – 11)

13. Admiral New - July 22, 2010

I’d like to see the Aventine from another angle.

14. Mel - July 22, 2010

The Enterprise picture from the new movie is from Tobias Richter. Very nice!

There are TONS of Star Trek wallpapers on his homepage:

http://www.thelightworks.com/

Reel&More -> Wallpaper (Don’t forget to scroll! There are more than the Star Trek Part I and II 1280×1024 wallpapers! Move the mouse on the big pictures.)

And under VFX/TV there are some excerpts of a Star Trek video he made for the Fedcon.

15. TonyD - July 22, 2010

I love these Ships of the Line calendars, though quite honestly I think the Aventine is one of the weaker Trek designs I’ve seen – never cared for that flattened look. Anyhow, they really brighten up my office at work (and are an endless source of conversation). This will be picked up with my next Amazon purchase.

16. Lt. Dakin - July 22, 2010

>>> too TOS heavy

FINALLY!!

And that includes TOS series, movies and Star Trek 09,

Love, love, love the cover.

17. NCC-73515 - July 22, 2010

XD “coleopteric drive”?! Bug propulsion?

18. Captain Rickover - July 22, 2010

This calendar is a must have!

19. The First Son of Krypton - July 22, 2010

I cant help but feel that thats what the NX-01 should of looked like anyway…

Oh, what could of been

20. Joe Lazlo - July 22, 2010

The Robert McCall dedication is cool.

21. Victor Hugo - July 22, 2010

Gorgeous artwork as always.(2)

22. Jorg Sacul - July 22, 2010

This is a definite “must have” for my 2011 budget.

Hey, if anyone in the industry is listening, these would make wonderful full-sized posters also.

23. Kirk, James T. - July 22, 2010

I would really love them to release a 2nd Ships of the line book. I don’t use paper calendars anymore but love the artwork to these.

24. Robert H. - July 22, 2010

I wouldn’t mind if they came out with a toy that looks like the refitted NX-01 Enterprise.

25. Mike - July 22, 2010

The art is really lovely, but I do wish these were actually functioning calendars, where you could write notes, etc. I ordered one last year not realizing it really was only a display item.

26. Hat Rick - July 22, 2010

Looks like the 2011 version is a keeper! This artwork keeps me coming back for more.

27. NSM - July 22, 2010

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, all of them. The NX-01 / XCV-330 layout is my favorite, followed closely by the Aventine. This is the best SOTL calendar yet — a definite must-have!

28. Stan Wingston - July 22, 2010

Just wanna say Tobias Richter in particular is spectacularly talented…

29. Dr. Image - July 22, 2010

Tobias’ and Doug’s stuff- WOW!

30. CAPT KRUNCH - July 22, 2010

SO COOL….is there any ship more awesome than 1701 and 1701A…
sory but TREK09′s big E just doesn’t move me…watched TMP last night and still get a chill when Kirk sees the Enterprise in drydock for teh first time…she is grace and design!…than page with Enterprise firing on Reliant is beautiful!

31. The Riddler - July 22, 2010

Not enough TOS!

32. Spectre_7 - July 22, 2010

The Aventine looks like a predecessor to STO’s Star Cruisers

33. Dib - July 22, 2010

Oops. I meant upper RIGHT corner for Deg’s Enterprise.

34. star trackie - July 22, 2010

Love me some TOS. Gorgeous renderings… I’m buying this one for sure!

35. KJTrek - July 22, 2010

@12 – Calendar design should definitely NOT be based upon equal representation. There is always one era that gets the glory in these calendars. This year it was TOS, and I’ll bet it’s because of the recent movie. Newcomers to the franchise are most familiar with that era, and the designers know it. Honestly, so long as everything is original and beautiful, I’m happy. In the past there have been some very shoddy designs, but this year it looks good!

36. Darkwing - July 22, 2010

This is one of the best ones yet!

37. Hat Rick - July 22, 2010

Only Star Trek nerds like me (and engineers) would go “hubba hubba” over starship calendar centerfold.

Hubba^2.

38. miraclefan - July 22, 2010

I know what I’ll be buying! :D

39. Vultan - July 22, 2010

Nice. But I’m still wondering why the new J.J.prise hotrod didn’t have any ghost flames going down the side of the nacelles or a pair of fuzzy dice hanging from the deflector dish. And would it have killed Uhura to wear a tube top? C’mon, if they want to appeal to the youth market (Ipod bridge, James T. Kirk Cameron, brew-gineering, etc.), they might as well go all the way.

40. dixonium - July 22, 2010

The NX refit is absolutely brilliant–and beautiful!

41. THX-1138 - July 22, 2010

Ships of the Line:

Starship Pourn. Love it! (But not literally)

42. Holger - July 22, 2010

WTF?? Ugly ST09 ships in my beloved Ships of the Line calendar! I’m seriously considering cancellation of my pre-order.

43. Victor Hugo - July 22, 2010

Totally agree, the whole “ST09″ thingie could be in a post Nemesis setting, with these same actors playing different characters.
Quinto could be just another troublesome vulcan, Pine could be just another dude inspired by the past.

Then it would have no conflict, it wouldn´t be this big white elephant that doesn´t fit with the rest of Star Trek.

This “ST09″ Enterprise could be “Enterprise-F”, could be as many shaky cameras and it would be just nfine.

44. Hat Rick - July 22, 2010

40, I love the way that the refit has been interpolated as well.

Trek people are, without any doubt in my mind, some of the most imaginative and rational creative types in the entire world. What a wonderful way to make the transition from the NX-01 to the TOS Constitution-class Enterprise.

And I have great affection for the mission patch for the Enterprise-class, as well. Clearly the XCV was a pioneering design, and what better mutual honor is there than to give the name to that class of ships.

In the real world, “Enterprise” is a storied name. Yesterday’s Enterprise — that of World War II fame — was the most decorated U.S. naval ship of her time. Today’s Enterprise was the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier ever made, and the longest aircraft carrier in the world (longer even than the Nimitz-class, though not as heavy). And although the cruiser, the USS Long Beach was the first ships of the “nuclear navy,” the Long Beach was scrapped a long time ago, while the Enterprise still serves.

Finally, how often can you use “imaginative,” “rational,” and “creative” in the same sentence to describe the same people? Not very often!

45. Michael Hall - July 22, 2010

Wonderful, wonderful work at a level I can still only aspire to. Congrats to all of the artists involved in this project.

46. Devon - July 22, 2010

#39 – But they obviously didn’t do that, so not sure what you’re point is.

47. Red Dead Ryan - July 22, 2010

#46

I think he was being sarcastic.

48. MC1 Doug - July 22, 2010

#23: “I don’t use paper calendars anymore but love the artwork to these.”

Too bad they don’t have digital version of the Star Trek calendars too. It would make a great addition to my computer wallpaper…

I have every single calendar they have produced from the first on (1976, I think).

49. Will_H - July 22, 2010

As far as the NX refit goes, I don’t even count “These Are The Voyages” as cannon since the whole thing took place in a holodeck recreation set 200 years in the future so there could be a lot that wasn’t accurate. What I’m wondering is why, if they added that big deflector dish to the engineering hull did they leave the original dish in place as well? That thing takes up a lot of space in the primary hull after all and would be a waste of power. Too bad Enterprise hadn’t gone on long enough for that refit to become a reality.

50. Vultan - July 22, 2010

#46

What? You don’t like ghost flames, Chewie? No fuzzy dice either? Hey, if you’re gonna go swinging around the cosmos, you gotta turn some heads and eyeballs, man. You can’t just go impulsin’ along with gray primer and factory speakers. Competition’s stiff out there. Ain’t you seen Kor’s new ride? Brand new battlecruiser off the lot with two-tone metalflake and a warp-7 flathead. Make you dizzy, sucka.

51. Pensive's Wetness - July 22, 2010

*rolls eyes in disgust from #27 comments* (So fake!)

now, the callendar…

other than the lame reuse of a still from ST-V (which is still a good pic *grugingly*), i do, however, like the art work examples (curious on the big battle fleet one… is that mostly TMP ships in that fleet?)

52. Kilo-Three-Zero - July 22, 2010

@ #5 & #10…

The “The Good That Men Do” ENT novel pretty much retconed the entirety of TATV as a cover-up. Then again, novel’s aren’t canon, so….

But, as far as i’m concerned, we may be hearing about the refit in the The Romulan War novel series.

53. Carl Geffers - July 22, 2010

the NU TREK Pictures look awesome. Why does the Hangar Bay of Enterprise-E have Kelvin Shuttles aboard.

54. LordBridges - July 22, 2010

51. Pensive’s Wetness – July 22, 2010

What lame ST-V reuse?

55. Chronos - July 22, 2010

LOVE the XCV-330!!!

56. Jordan - July 22, 2010

Good to see the ENT love.

57. Phaser Guy - July 22, 2010

A Kelvin series would be really cool.

58. CmdrR - July 22, 2010

PLEASE MAKE A 6 INCH EDITION THIS YEAR.

59. CarlG - July 22, 2010

Is that Klingon bird of prey getting assimilated? If so, AWESOME.

60. CHADWICK WANTS KLINGON SHIPS AND BIG BATTLES WITH MANY SHIPS!!!!! - July 22, 2010

Bravo! Star Trek calenders have always brought choice images to the fans. The ships of the line book was great, kinda small.

61. cl0428 - July 22, 2010

USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and Reliant – I feel the ships are on the verge of colliding. I would have liked to have some distance between the two ships. The planet, though not in the movie, is very reminiscent of TOS planets which had a single color scheme.

USS Enterprise XCV-330 – A very beautiful ship. I would have been happy if they had gone with this design instead of that other Enterprise for Star Trek: Enterprise.

USS Kelvin NCC-501 – I think this is one of the better designed ships of the latest movie, though I do feel there is a balance issue between the short top nacelle and the long bottom nacelle. I like the ring planet. (Ring planets are cool.)

Romulan Warbird – This design is very bold and simple. I like.

Constitution-class Starship firing on a Klingon Warbird – This one has movement and a story. Well-done.

USS Enterprise NCC-1701 (alternate reality) – I feel the ship is pasted onto the image. It doesn’t work for me.

Enterprise NX-01/USS Enterprise XCV-330 – I dislike the revamped Enterprise. The original ship’s symmetry is damaged by the addition of elements better suited to other classes. I like seeing detailed images of the other Enterprise, especially the enviropod.

Klingon bird-of-prey being assimilated – Though interesting, it’s rather boring for me. It’s like the artist painted a Klingon ship, then surrounded the ship with Borg architecture. I would have preferred more movement in the painting.

USS Constellation NCC-1017 – Seen it before, nothing new or interesting.

Enterprise NX-01 – I hope this is the last I have to see of this abomination.

USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and Galileo – I think this image, like the Constellation image, is from the restored TOS series. I not happy that they did two images which are near duplicates of what is seen in the restored TOS.

Armada – This is a curious image. The NCC-2707 and her sister ship, seen in the far background, are believable designs and have their origins in the sketches of Jeffries. (It’s like the artist took the original sketch, and updated the design to incorporate the components of a refit Constitution-class starships. This is evident when I compare 2707 to the Constitution.) As for the other kitbashes, I am not sure what to make of them. I need to get the calendar and examine the two ships in more detail before I give my opinion. I like the design of the 2707.

Shuttlebay of a Federation ship – Bleh.

62. Naver Drol - July 22, 2010

FYI… you have a thumbnail linking to the same thumbnail.

Here is the image it should have linked to:

http://img.trekmovie.com/images/merchandise/ShipsoftheLine2011.jpg

63. Nachum - July 22, 2010

Why is the Amazon cover different?

64. Sid - July 23, 2010

That NX refit is looking sweet! I’d love to have a model.

95% of the improvement, for me, is from the more TOS-like paint scheme on the hull, which the NX-01 should’ve had from the beginning. Dark grey aztec’ing like a 24th-century ship just ruined it.

65. Mark Rademaker - July 23, 2010

Looks like a good year! :)

Just wanted to point out that the Aventine image is NOT in the 2011 calendar, but in the one of 2010.

Also the Aventine/Vesta class MIGHT return in 2012 again.

66. Markonian - July 23, 2010

@35: Nice idea to have each calendar put focus on a certain era, but it’s *always* TOS/Classic Movies. TOS is a great series but it’s way too overrepresented in the calendar.

After all those years – where is Riker’s U.S.S. Titan?? She deserves a month, Imho.

67. Hat Rick - July 23, 2010

I just realized that there is not a single image in the calendar that I wouldn’t be pleased as Punch to have as a screensaver or wallpaper for my computers on a long-term basis.

I hope they will sell them as screensavers or wallpapers!

68. LordBridges - July 23, 2010

They should print and sell giant posters.

69. Jeff Bond - July 23, 2010

I reiterate the first comment from #61. This is something that’s always bugged me about effects shots in the Trek series from DS9 on–because they have the ABILITY to place numerous ships within the frame (something that budgetary and time restrictions made impossible on TOS and early TNG) you see shots where these enormous ships maneuvering in the infinite reaches of space seem to be separated by only a few hundred feet. I always liked the idea of the space battles in TOS that took place across thousands of miles of space–that seems much more realistic to me given the technology these ships have.

It’s nice to see people are still bitter about the new movie. I just did a panel at Comic Con with a room full of people, Abrams’ Star Trek was discussed and there wasn’t a single “Boo!” or a shout of “But engineering looked like a brewery!!” In fact mention of the movie seemed to produce a great deal of good will. But of course those people weren’t “real fans”…

70. cl0428 - July 23, 2010

One of my biggest issues with the last film is that the writers either weren’t aware or chose to deliberately ignore trends in warfare. One of these trends is the increasing use of drones in combat. When I saw the last film, I was thinking to myself, why isn’t Starfleet using drones to evaluate the situation in the Vulcan system before sending their ships there?

71. Prologic9 - July 23, 2010

#69,

So I guess all the people who don’t like the film were just wrong, thanks for clearing it up.

72. Sid - July 23, 2010

#69: Engineering DID look like a brewery, and it was ridiculous.

Fortunately, I’ve always thought the occasional goofy interior set is a Star Trek tradition, and the movie was great.

73. Jeff Bond - July 23, 2010

71. Not wrong, just bitter. I’ve never seen people gnaw on a worn-out bone for so long…

74. Vultan - July 23, 2010

#73

I don’t think we’re bitter. I think we’re mostly bringing up the flaws with the last movie so they don’t reappear in the sequel. If something needs improving, we’re gonna point it out to the rest of you. You know, kinda like the mother-in-laws of Trek fandom. ;)

75. LordBridges - July 23, 2010

That’s the point. If Trek 2009 had been a one time only movie, nobody would be bitching about it for that long. But it gets a sequel, done by the SAME people. The bitching won’t stop until they deliver a movie that satisfies those who hated the first one, or if they leave.

76. Dr. Cheis - July 23, 2010

I don’t understand the point of the refit NX-01.

We saw the ship didn’t look any different at the end of the series when it was to be retired. It looks like the author just decided that because he didn’t like the episode he was going to ignore it.

77. Dr. Cheis - July 23, 2010

But I’m really glad to see the inclusion of the new shots from Remastered TOS, especially the Constellation.

78. Captain Conrad - July 23, 2010

This looks like it will be the best ships of the line yet!!!!!!!!!!!! Now if only they would reboot Enterprise and count the last episode as uncannon!

79. The TOS Purist aka The Purolator - July 23, 2010

#12 –

It’s not “TOS heavy” enough. If it were up to me, I’d like to see the whole damn calender be TOS-themed; this one only has three TOS pages, so I’m not going to buy it this time around.

Plus, one of the TOS sheets features glowing warp nacelles…and that just ain’t right.

80. Spock - July 23, 2010

I agree it should have more Star Trek and the movie images from 1-6. The classic still works, still sells and is a lot more popular than the TNG era series.

81. bill hiro - July 23, 2010

@ #49 – “What I’m wondering is why, if they added that big deflector dish to the engineering hull did they leave the original dish in place as well?”

Drex sez the saucer deflector was retained in case there’s a problem with the new warp core or if the engineering section has to be jetisoned. The saucer still has the original warp core and the plasma conduits to the nacelles, so if the worst happened, the ship could still function in more or less its original configuration. The engineering section as envisioned in the NX-01 refit is still experimental.
