Who was the designer of the ship on Star Trek?


Answer by  coffins (75)

Although there are multiple models of the primary spaceship on Star Trek, the fictional USS Enterprise featured in the original Star Trek series was designed by series art director Matt Jefferies. Series creator Gene Rodenberry had originally christened the ship "Yorktown". The model used for the series pilot was only around 3 feet long.

When an innovator is proud of an invention, he may attach a family name to it--that's why we have the Tesla coil, Morse code and Kirlian photography. There's a lesser-known appearance of this "inventor's legacy"--the Jefferies tubes, the access tunnels that connect the critical areas of a starship, were named after Matt Jefferies, the designer of Star Trek's Starship Enterprise.

The production designers for the movie were Scott Chambliss and J.J. Abrams. They collaborated with Industrial Light and Magic, model maker Roger Goodson, effects supervisor Roger Guyett, all working from an original redesign by Ryan Church. The redesign was based on the original design from the TV series done by Star Trek art director Matt Jefferies.
