The Enterprise 3D Project


A virtual reality project will allow fans to tour the Enterprise-D.

The Enterprise-D Construction Project is recreating the Enterprise-D using Unreal Game Engine 4 with the goal of creating the entire ship.

According to the creators of this virtual Enterprise, “the Enterprise would serve first and foremost as a virtual museum. Every deck and room can be explored. Fans would be able to visit engineering via the turbolift, or walk from Deck 36 to Deck 5 to see the Arboretum. What does Worf’s quarters look like? What about the large forward windows on Deck 3? What kind of communal areas exist on the ship? Malls? Markets? Gardens? All these questions will be answered.”

To create these areas of the ship, the 3D artist who started the project “compiled a large archive of reference from production drawings, set blueprints, official blueprints, and of course meticulous captures of the HD Blu-ray versions of the episodes.”

Have a look at the virtual tour below. More information on the project can be found here.
