TOSBlueprints

The Star Trek Blueprints (or Booklet of General Plans) are a detailed "Complete Set of 12 Authentic Blueprints" (sized 9-by-30 inches) of the USS Constitution (NCC-1700), a ship of the same class as the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701). (The cover claims the blueprints are "of the Fabulous Starship Enterprise".)

They were used as a source and reference for the first three Star Trek movies. Excerpts from them were used as on screen displays in Star Trek: The Motion Picture when V'Ger was reading the Enterprise's on-board database.

Based in part on a suggestion by Gene Roddenberry, an early, pre-publication version of these deck plans were donated to the Smithsonian Institution by Franz Joseph in April of 1974. They were displayed along with the eleven-foot original model of the USS Enterprise in the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum later that summer. Mounted behind Plexiglas on a wall underneath the ship, visitors to the "Life in the Universe" display were encouraged to fill out a form indicating whether they would want to see these and similar works published (a publishing deal not having yet been worked out).

Memory Alpha as usual has a way too detailed list of the contents.


I geeked to this SO HARD when they came out. I still have the set even if the vinyl envelop is toast.

I also hate the damn things because every fan made blueprint set slavishly copied the awkward 9" x 30" format. A format doubtless imposed so Ballantine could get them on the shelf with minimum folding. Franz Joseph being an aerospace designer by trade would not have used that size paper. 32" x 24" is a standard size for blueprints. Tesral (talk) 05:57, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
