Day 3 "The Basics"
The Enterprise, at its base, is predominantly a collection of cones and spheres. To start with some basic math and geometery go here. http://www.math.com/school/subject3/lessons/S3U4L4GL.html If you follow that page through, you can get a basic understanding of area, circumference, volume and so on. I'll be using basic math and a little trig to go through a few methods and plotting out the plans, but will not load this discussion up with a lot of technical jargon, engineering speak, of techno babble. It just isn't neccesary. If you wish to follow along with this project I suggest you check into some basic drafting and isometric drawing. I'll cover as little of this as possible and will only show what is neccesary for this discussion.
