    It's a thing of beauty, really lovely mesh! This is personal preference, but I'm wondering if the shader should be dialed back from being quite as chrome-like - a less reflective material would reduce the size of the white highlights.

    I'd been considering that. Right now I'm using the same settings that I did on my Enterprise model. Mostly because that's how I thought it looked from early episodes of Strange New Worlds and the teaser trailers. I might make it a bit more gray and tone down the metallic look sometime down the line if I ever get around to doing some proper scene renders. Maybe tone it to look a bit more like the NX-01 than a polished chrome desktop model.

    We'll see, I suppose. I'm just not there yet.

    According to John Eaves, when he and Scott Schneider were working out the Enterprise's hull materials, they wanted it to look like bare metal. Then the people doing the CGI model took that forward and made the model look metallic and, thus, very shiny.

    I don't know if they tweaked the materials at all for SNW, but the ship definitely looks very metallic on screen.
