A model of the U.S.S. Shenzhou from the new Star Trek show. Official blueprints haven't been released for this yet, so I had to make do with concept art and a ton of screenshots from the show :) I'm sure I got some stuff wrong, but it'll have to do until better references become available.

Model is about 100K polys, and includes 2 texture maps at 6K resolution (I know that's a weird size, but I can't handle 8K on my machine and you can always scale it down). The large texture images are the reason the file is so big, incidentally. The mesh itself is fairly small (compared to some of my other work). In case anyone's curious, I applied all mirror modifiers, etc, because this model was primarily built for non-Blender applications. But I figured I could release a Blender version :)

Releasing model as CC-BY-NC. I personally don't care what you do with it, but since CBS owns the rights I didn't feel like I could release it any other way.

    I've recently watched this new Orville show, in one episode there was this giant city-ship floating in space and i immediately think to myself "Yeah, Chris would do it for you in one day" :D
