My rebuilt and retextured refit USS Enterprise
 
Well, I rebuilt and retextured my refit Enterprise model. She ain't perfect, but like the K't'inga, she's a hell of a lot closer to looking like the real thing than my first effort.

All elements in this video were made by me, and animated in iClone.

Good work Martok, though I noticed that there appears to be a kink where the left pylon engages the secondary hull?

I suspect there are several K't'ingas waiting in ambush.

Thanks, guys.

O-man, I'll see about that connector. I did have to redo the secondary hull so I could get the colors to blend together better on the engineering section, and it may have slightly altered the way the warp pylons fit on. :)

LCARS, there just may be another Klingon/Enterprise battle in the works. :) I've always been eager to do a rematch, and these ships are just the ones to show off such a battle.

They don't seem to complain about using music from Trek. I downloaded MP3s from Trekcore and included them in two videos. Those tracks were recognized by YouTube's software but not blocked. CBS doesn't seem to mind. Our efforts do indirectly help them sell DVDs, etc.

Yeah, the most YouTube will say when it seems to come to Star Trek music is: "Third party detected" or something like that.

Still, this has motivated me to learn my Korg Khrome 61 WorkStation so I can make my own music. :)

I suppose writing background music for scenes shouldn't be so hard for anyone who knows the mechanics of it. It might be fun to watch a scene you've made, hear some music for it in your head, find it on a keyboard or guitar, write down the melody, and sweat the rest later. But more likely the music will come to you out of the blue and you should keep some recording device handy. And if your Korg thing does high-quality MIDI, well, you could be in for some fun.

Originally, I wanted to get a Roland Fantom X6 Keyboard, because I really liked the orchestral sounds on it. But, even though I could afford it at the time, I remembered that I had made a friend a promise to help him out monetarily if the need should arise....so I held off and got the Korg Khrome 61. It has some wonderful sounds on it....the orchestral instruments sound a bit too synth, but the interface with which to sequence is stunningly intuitive. I'd worked with Korg sequencers before, so this was not much of an obstacle. I now own two Korg keyboards. The Khrome 61 WorkStation, and an X50 Keyboard.
