I would not have thought, if you had just described it to me in words, that an Enterprise-shaped coffee table could be “classy,” but I believe Etsy seller Barry Shields has done it. It’s sold already, of course, but I bet he’ll be making more. [via Dude Craft]

    Quick! Someone change that! I should be NCC-1701-D, not C!

      @Trek Nerd — actually, I think it probably IS the “C”. Check the shape of the secondary, the shape of the nacelles and how they attach to the secondary, and compare with what’s here: http://www.utopiaplanitia.info/entcmain.html

        I’m sure he chose the C because on the C the engine nacelles are roughly level with the saucer.

        On Enterprise D the nacelles are significantly below the plane of the saucer, and wouldn’t really work as a table.

  • IPcurious

    I have to wonder what are the IP implications of this?

    • Sean Ragan

      I’d bet considerable sums he’s technically violated their IP with this. But I’m also betting that neither he, nor they, really cares, and neither ever will unless he starts churning them out by the dozen. If he were a company in business selling Enterprise tables, it might make sense to get all lawyer-y, but a lone fan / craftsperson making these by hand? Suing such people is lousy PR.
