In the classic Star Trek, there was an episode called “Space Seed”. It featured a DY-100 class spacecraft called the “Botany Bay”. It was launched from Earth in the far futuristic year 1996.
Recently, a gentleman named Paul Davies wondered what the Botany Bay would look like if it was actually built with 1996 technology. He created some blueprints which can be found here:

As you can see right below that, I have been attempting to make a Blender mesh of Mr. Davies spacecraft. He has given me permission, and indeed supplied me with some hi-res blueprints to aid the process. I’m going to have to replace my NASA style NERVA nuclear rockets with his version, which is going to take a bit of time.
