Building The Enterprise-D, One Block At A Time

Coming through the far end of madness into a kind of benevolent stupor, some dude built a 1:1 scale model of Star Trek: The Next Generation's U.S.S. Enterprise-D in Minecraft. Each block in the game is intended to be a meter on each side, and this guy took that information and ran with it. This thing is freaking enormous.

Why? Why not! Minecraft is a 10-Euro indie game that is still in its alpha stage, but developer Mojang Specifications has banked more than 600,000 Euros through sales already. The official site (and semi-official forums) has much more, but the short version is that Minecraft is a multiplayer-enabled, real-time, infinite, 3D box of LEGOs. With zombies. In which you can build a full-scale model of the starship Enterprise, if you're insane enough.

And who are we kidding? This is the Internet. Someone is always insane enough.
