    OMG this is fantastic space porn. I got this in my Star Trek dot Com newsletter today. This is the whole story below, I just pasted it in.

    Have you ever wondered what a real-life ship designed for faster-than-light travel might look like? Matthew Jefferies, legendary designer of Star Trek's Enterprise, took a pre-Enterprise stab at it in 1965, but NASA engineer/physicist Dr. Harold "Sonny" White recently joined forces with artist Mark Rademaker and longtimeStar Trek graphic designer Michael Okuda to create a model -- using genuine mathematics -- of an updated version of such a ship. Oh, and guess what they called it?
