There is a Minecraft video making its way around the Internet. In it, you see the side of a wall, and hear a man's voice explaining your position at the bottom of a huge well. Then the camera turns and you see the immense body of the starship Enterprise, created using blocks in Minecraft. It's breathtaking. "The D was 'my Enterprise.' It was the one I grew up watching on TV," its creator, Joshua Walker, told Ars. It was always his dream to one day create a 1:1 scale model of the ship, and using the game he was finally able to realize that dream (albeit virtually).
Then Felicia Day tweeted about it, and the gaming blogs picked up the story. Now the video of that enormous ship is all over the Internet. Here's how it was made.
