    Romulan T'Varo-class Bird of Prey (22nd Century)

    I was really impressed by the work Tommy Kraft was doing for Star Trek: Horizon and I dropped him a line back in February to say so and offered to help out with any VFX work he might need. He took me up on the offer and asked me to build a 22nd Century, Enterprise-era Romulan Bird of Prey for use in the film!

    In Star Trek: Online, this design is still in service in the 25th Century as the T'Varo-class light warbird, which is the name I've been using to identify it. Modeled and rendered in Blender, textures created in Photoshop. I'm passing the model over to Tommy for use in 3ds Max for the final film animation and rendering.





    Start to finish, this project spanned exactly 5 months (started Feb 20, finished July 20).

    She really came out great, man. Excellent work. I'm sure she's going to look really badass in the film.

    Let's be honest, the design looks worlds better after echoing the famous hull markings of its TOS relative!
    Somebody blow something up, I'm in a really bad mood. Thanks in advance.

    It also fits better with Stiles' comment about war era Romulan ships:

    "After a whole century, what will a Romulan ship look like, Mr. Stiles? I doubt if they'll radio and identify themselves."
    "You'll know, sir. They're painted like a giant bird of prey."

    Was it painted on with glow in the dark paint or did they have to get really close to a star to see it in enough light?

    Well, common sense would suggest that a lot of the major battles would take place inside of solar systems, which typically have stars.

    That's assuming that the Rommies had warp drive to get there. *Runs*
