    Just pick a race and use there architecture. I like cardasian styles like in DS9. Its all pretty organic.

    theres a few Klingon case I have seen, borgs are quite popular do you want to make it in the actual shape of a starship of just like a part that you might find in there ship? not very pratical but you could make one shaped like voyager and place the motherboard and slotloading optical drive in the disk at the top. If you want some inspiration on what possible look through the project logs here or www.mini-itx.com which has some crazy ones like the waffle iron mod :D

    quite hard to get any detail on the hull sounds like a difficult mod do you have access to a vacuum forming machine??? you could make the mould vacuum form it and the cover it in fibre glass for strength

    Mate Garry of mine is building the original enterprise and is planning to stick a pc into it. Complet with all the lights for the engine and a stand with a little TV as a plaque displaying the star trek logo but then rolls over to play video and what have you.

    I finished my Star Trek mod (Enterprise NX-01 themed case) this weeked (see post above). I still need to take some real pictures of the case (probably will have to wait for next weekend).

    Not to thread-jack, put this thread could use a little color...

    No offense to jediknight0, but nacelles sticking out of the top of the case is not exactly what I call cool.

    You're better off theming your case after the architecture seen in a particular series. Think of it this way: If you do a TNG theme, it should look like a prop that would fit well with other props on a set.

    little boring lol won't be that quick if you wanted to make it really small then you could use a pico-itx motherboard and then 2x2.5" hdd drives onboard layed outwards through the wings and maybe an internal wireless so that you can store all your files on a home file server extremely easy just cram as many hdd's into an old case as possible and you won't have an issue
