This new section with planed, running and closed activities I want to open with my participation on the 31-st CCC congress. What is this 31C3 you may get on the pages of “Computer Chaos Club”. For my self I can say less about it because I didn’t have enough time to get around the congress. For my participation on this event I have to thank a man named Thorge (newer knew if this is his real or nickname). He invited me to participate on the congress with a little star trek origami workshop. I must confess
First I had some doubts with it. The first one was to stay alone at my table because I think that the name “computer chaos club” would probably imply the handling of some other threads which are completely different than origami. I was simply unsure if I would get enough members for the workshop. And second one and may be my major fear was not to stay alone at my table but to get enoughembers who want to learn something from me and than to fail as a teacher. Once I tried my self with class of my son in the art lesson and this was a disaster. I chose very simple origami figures and was unable to show the kids them how to make. But my fear were pointless. Both if them. Two days I were there with about three sessions per day and all of them were full. Even more than full.
And I want also to thank all participants of my workshop for the filling not to fail, for the experience and knowledge you gave me.
Of course the next time I will be there. And now when I believe in my ability as trainer and yours as learners we can try some ambitious challenging models like the Enterprise D or perhaps a Star Wars model of Yoda, Tie Fighter or X-Wing. And if I look at your work I am sure you can master it.


The story of development of this model is pretty short. I’ve began the work on the model nearly parallel to my work on the Enterprise NX-01. In some way it was logical, because the design of the NX-01 was created very similar to the design of the Akira class starship, which appeared several times in the TNG timeline. So I had to make little modifications to give the model the shape of the Akira class.

Prototype and first version

I have turned over the model, and then I’ve redesigned the warp nacelles and gave a bow to the saucer section. The prototype was already good enough to be the first version, which I want to show you

The design of the nacelles allowed the usage of color change


The enterprise NX-01 is a model which to develop I have hesitated for long time. I was extremely unsure about how to approach the development of the model to get the shape of the ship almost exactly. So over a year I delayed the start of work. And perhaps I would do it by now if I were not met the message that another Origami artist Shu Sugamata, who’s work have inspired me early, started developing of the NX-01. As I saw his prototype, I have understood, that the exactly capture of the shape is not really necessary.

Enterprise NX-01 Prototype by Shu Sugamata

Somtime it is enogh to capture the genaral feeling of the shape. This knowledge took my doubts away, so I could start the work on my own version.

This prototype is made also from a bird frog mix as base figure. I’ve used this bas mix already in the pas for my version of the Constellation class, but first Shu Sugamata work showed me the great potential in this figure.

The first prototype was quickly accomplished

And after some little modifications was a version created that I would be proud to show you
